I desire to have a steadfast faith. A faith that is unmovable in the wake of bad news. And when those hard and difficult moments come, I want to turn my fear into faith, hurt into hope, pain into praise and doubt into trust. I want to stand on the promises of God and say “I will not be shaken!” If this is your desire, hit the heart so we can pray for a steadfast faith together. They will have no fear of bad news; their hearts are steadfast, trusting in the LORD. Psalm 112.7 Just a side note, we have not received any bad news. 😉 Just something that was on my heart today.❤
Happy Friday Friends! After a work trip to Philadelphia this week, there is another trip in my future for this weekend. I am headed to #thecottonmillhouse to stain some floors. Hoping and praying that it goes well. Have a wonderful weekend! P.S. This is one of our favorite places in Edenton. Charles and I visit the Penelope Barker House during the evenings after it closes. We spend time in these rockers overlooking the waterfront. This was where we first decided last year to pursue finding a fixer upper / retirement home. We never thought that the dream discussed during that conversation would actually come true. We owe it all to God. The pieces began to fall into place that very weekend. We wouldn't have been able to do this with out Him. God is so good.
This beautiful space belongs to Amy @oak.hillfarm. Amy not only has a beautiful home and family, she has a beautiful heart as well. Want to see more? I knew you would 😂😂😂. Go check out her feed and give her some ❤. Oh, the outside of her home is just a pretty as the inside. Have a great day friends.
Good morning sweet friends! Just sharing a wider view of the before and after of our in-progress kitchen update at #thecottonmillhouse. We went back and forth about ripping all of these cabinets out. We decided to keep the uppers and buy new base cabinets since they had water damage. We purchased stock oak cabinets from our favorite home improvement store. We caught them on sale at 20% and used a 10% off coupon to help with the cost. Have I mentioned that we had a very tight budget with this kitchen? I was telling a co-worker that we were using stock cabinets for the kitchen and he cringed. I remember how that stung a little. I knew the vision that I had for this kitchen and what I wanted it to look like. Charles and I realize that the quality of these cabinets are not as great as a higher grade cabinet or custom cabinets. Spending that amount of money at this time is not feasible. We have a budget that we had to work with like many of you do. Although, these are not my dream kitchen cabinets, they ARE what I had envisioned for this space. Our plan is to add crown molding and a custom toe kick to complete them and make these stock cabinets shine. My heart is to share what we have done in hopes to encourage you to use what you have and what you can afford. I want to inspire you not to limit your vision and creativity because of your income or budget. You can have the space that you want and achieve the vision for your home for less. It may not be easy and it will be challenging at times but it is possible. Have a wonderful day. ❤ SW Pure White - upper cabinets SW Repose Grey - base cabinets PS we are adding a backsplash too.😉 . . . . . #thecottonmillhouse #fixerupper #oldhomelove #interiors #farmhousestyledecor #farmhousestyle #diy #sweatequity #renovation #edentonnc #kitchenremodel #therenovatednest
