Spent a truly glorious evening on Friday at Ward Hall in Georgetown, Kentucky. The entire 12,000 sqft β€œsummer home” is absolutely breathtaking. But I simply could not contain myself over this basement kitchen. Staged to look like a working room from 1857, just look at everything! πŸ‘€ πŸ‘€ πŸ‘€ all those woven seats make my heart sing!! #wardhall #nineteenthcentury #oldkitchenstuff

Got a free drill yesterday! It’s a classic, will be refurbing it before I try to do anything with it. Sounds dry but no smells or heat off the motor!! #dontmakethemliketheyusedto #metalcasingthough #mykingdomfornewbrushes
Two weeks in on #behindthesquare2018 and you guys have such GREAT PICTURES!! Here’s a little throwback to the master bedroom. This is the second room we did but the first room we completely finished (still have to sand the floors in the halls). Swipe to see the before picture. Can you believe this is the same view?!? This house has such great bones but needs some SERIOUS love. Fortunately we are just the people for the job. πŸ˜ƒ #afterandbefore #hagueblue

It’s crazy to me that the only ones that get to enjoy this gorgeous architecture are the birds and the people at the top of a parking garage. #steelcitygrammers #dontmakethemliketheyusedto #412pics #pittsburgh #pgh
Got my old bluey back in action!! 21st gift from my parents many moons ago, used it SOOO much. The top tension fell off and I put it away for several years. Now I've had it repaired and I'm so excited!! It goes like the dickens and handles heavy stuff like a trooper. #singer #sewing #bluemagic #oldstyle #toughstuff #dontmakethemliketheyusedto
Replacing Grundfos failed Bore Pump. Pump on the right is 15+ years old (could hardly tell). Don’t make them like that anymore. #quality #grundfos #pumpinstall #scpumps #westernsydney #recycledwater #footy #fields #sydneytradies #sydneypumpinstall #dontmakethemliketheyusedto
It’s been over a year since we started renovating this house. We started with this wall in the upstairs hall. I still have an absurd amount of adoration for my staircase. 😍 #ihavethisthingwithstairs #victorianstaircase #oldwoodwork
If you’ve been around here for a minute, you may have noticed that I am a knowledge fiend. I LOVE to know things, and I love to know how to do things. It never gets old to me. My mother has been saying for a while that she’d love someone to weave her kitchen chairs in a natural fiber. One quick trip to YouTube University and I was immediately certain I was The Person to do this weaving. So last weekend, I wove these two wooden chairs in a herring bone pattern with 3/4” splint reed. I took them out on the porch today to give the reed a light sanding (it gets all these splintery little fibers coming off) and I was absolutely GOBSMACKED when I saw them on the porch. They look so...right. These chairs are probably similar to what was used on the wooden porch in 1905 when this house was built. And this is probably the first time since the first owner passed away anything like them has been on this porch. Oh how I wish I could know what this place looked like back then. Also this has completely clarified what kind of porch furniture I am looking for now. #splintchair #handcrafting #howitwasdone
The never ending #knurl story continued today with a special, SPECIAL guest appearance from the follower rest. Apparently size does matter because the Leblond came stock with these follower beauties to handle the big boy pipes. #dontmakethemliketheyusedto #lathe #manualmachining #manualmachinist #knurling #machinistporn #chrisroberts

Every evening the westerly light comes through the window and lights up the mantle. And every single evening it makes me go 😍. #hagueblue #darkinteriorstyle #moodywalls

There's a lovely 'Wallace & Gromit' type Austin at the garage. Thought my #austinmini was old (over 30) but this is 50+! #dontmakethemliketheyusedto #classiccars #vintagenotold #cars #wallaceandgromit #morecheesegromit
Old school classic from back in the day when we all thought we were hard cunts, loud music, booze, endless supply of dope, motos up the quarry on sundays and fresh outta school at 16, hanging out at pubes shed was a daily ritual, looking back now we were just stupid kids wasting our lives but fuck it was fun and fuck the 16 year old me would kill a 16 year old kid these days 🀣 #dontmakethemliketheyusedto
What do you do when your oven dies 3 weeks before Christmas? You say "Happy Christmas to me!" and buy yourself a new stove. NOT what I wanted to spend my money on but oh well, what can you do. Now I can bake Christmas cookies! #newstove #oldstoveonly9yearsold #dontmakethemliketheyusedto #merrychristmastome #itispretty
Hey. HEY. WHAT’D YOU DO THIS WEEKEND?! I recaned a chair. By hand. By myself. And if I do say so myself, it turned out pretty darn nice!! Only five more to go. πŸ˜‚ #chaircaning #lostarts #liketheolddays
The first snow day of the season draws to a close. 🌬🌨 And so my fellow (southern) Americans, ask not after bread, milk or Chick-fil-A for none of these are to be found...

The door to the furnace closet under the stairs is one of the sweetest in the house. It’s made from tongue and groove bead board planks and still has the original shellac on it. You can see on the right the finish has darkened from a hundred years of hands pushing it closed. It’s also the only door in the house that retains all the original trim, albeit painted white. While there were not enough rosettes to recreate the trim in the whole house, we saved it in this one corner. Partly out of respect to the original owner, and partly because the stair trim is notched to fit. Either way, I love all the detail in this space. I never tire of looking at it. #originalwoodwork #beadboarddoor #whitetrimwooddoor
1910 Stanley Steamcar. Amazing and dangerous car that can still run to this day. This car is housed in the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado. #stanleyhotel #oldcars #dontmakethemliketheyusedto #hoteltour
Trying to make this Lodge cast iron pan work as well as the number 10 Wagner I got from Grandma Hale😬. Anybody ever tried this? #wagnerware #lodge #castiron #Dontmakethemliketheyusedto

Just setting up my mum’s ’phone’ with a Thai SIM card, only to find her phone expired in 2014! 2015 doesn’t work, never mind 2018 so today we are 8 December 2014!!! #dontmakethemliketheyusedto #dinosaurmum #samsungphones #samsung #expired #samsungflipphone
Magic Mike putting the finishing touches on this beauty roof... at least until an arborist cuts back this Arbutus tree branch so we can finish. The best roof framer I’ve ever worked with, an absolute beauty #carpentry #roofframer #oldschool #dontmakethemliketheyusedto
Did you think we were done Christmas decorating?! Absolutely NOT!! All that kept me going when I was striping 47 layers of paint and wall paper off this mantle was the though that ONE DAY I can decorate this majestic beauty for Christmas. TODAY IS THAT DAY. Greens are more cedar and pine. All held together with florist wire. And did you notice IT TOUCHES THE GROUND?! #victorianchristmas #christmasmantledecor #realgarland

DS Diadora Slam Size 11. One of the better condition pairs I’ve come across but not without some flaws. Insoles are bad. The tongues are oxidized and cracked. The leather coating on the blue panels by the collar are bound to crack and flake off.

Today's #gratitude30 challenge has had me laughing and crying for hours & the choices were so beautifully overwhelming that I've kept it simple...

It’s officially Christmas in the house and I. AM. SCREAMING. 😍😍😍 Can you even stand it?!? The greens are pine and cedar branches I clipped from the property. I also grabbed dry thistles, cornflower, and some pretty red bushes on the edge of the fields. Everything got bundled together with florist wire and attached to the bannister. I absolutely CANNOT EVEN with the draping beads. Or the bows. OR ANY OF IT. #victorianchristmas #naturalchristmasdecor #naturedecorations #vintagechristmasdecor

The living room is *finally* finished! (Well, except for the doors.... after all, is anything in an old house ever really done? πŸ˜‰) And check out my crown molding... ok, ok so technically @winterskeep installed it πŸ™„ BUT *I* spackled the nail holes so I think we can all agree who did the heavy lifting here. πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ Amiright? πŸ€¨πŸ˜‚ I almost hate to put anything in here. πŸ›‹πŸ“Ί I’m just loving the space so much! πŸŒ¬πŸ’†πŸ»β€β™€οΈ {Swipe to see the scarlet beast before she was tamed!

Always thinking about future projects. Just can’t help myself! πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ The old house love runs deep. πŸ§‘πŸ— There are 4 doors & a mantel in this room just *begging* to be stripped & restored! And I can’t wait to get my hands on them...

83. 83 spindles. 83 spindles that somebody painted white. Why you people always gotta be painting wood white? πŸ™„πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ˜‚ Maybe one day when everything else is finished I’ll be inspired to strip them all down. But today (tomorrow, the day after that etc....) is definitely not that day. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ˜‚ Who else is giving daily side eye to a non essential house project? πŸ˜’ #habitatandhome #BHGhome #apartmenttherapy #countrylivingmag #countrystylemag #farmhousestyle #thisoldhouse #interiorthursdays #deserve2preserve #mycountryhome #fixerupperstyle #howyouhome #romantichomes #originalcharacter #staircase #cottagestyle #mysouthernliving #sodomino #americanfarmhousestyle #realsimple #myhousebeautiful #historichome #vintageheartandhome #restorednotdestroyed #cozycottagefarmhouse #wowusweekdays #vintagehomecrush #postitfortheaesthetic #WoodsAndWhitesWednesday #dontmakethemliketheyusedto
