THE 💙 🚪 • Hello new followers 👋 . I live and work from @thegridhouse , a house that is filled with noise and light. This shot (and others) were featured in @reallivingmag and @homestylemag ❤️🏡
@michellemckayphotographer said this on one of her earlier posts and I couldn’t agree more:
‘There's so much to love about doorways.
As the threshold to the family home they're something almost sacred.
You can sense the stories here; feel the pulsing beat and rhythm of countless comings and goings, communal gatherings, tears and laughter, the ebbing and flowing of inevitable leaving and then the limitless relief of return.’ Happy Friday peeps!
A throw back to my porch two years ago. I had grand plans to decorate my porch last year, but my world was turned upside down (in a good, but stressful way). I spent all of Fall and Winter 2017 finishing projects and preparing to sell our home (unbeknownst to practically everyone). Fast forward almost a year, and my version of Fall decor for 2018 consists of pumpkin spice wall plug-ins (bless you @bathandbodyworks for making up for my slackerness) and some spooky spiderwebs for Halloween. Okay, that’s not entirely true. The spiderwebs aren’t a decoration. It’s a side “perk” of living in a run down farmhouse. I just tell myself it’s decorating so I feel better.
My Fall projects last year were board and batten hallways, a board and batten bedroom makeover, a plank wall bedroom makeover, and a laundry room makeover- with- you guessed it- board and batten. I replaced the cheap plastic shower curtain rings in my kids’ bathrooms with nice ones today, and hung a tension rod in my laundry room for air dried clothes. So, basically I’m totally on par with my project history. Lol.
Don’t worry, I do have a few real projects in the works, but you’ll have to wait. I’m not quite ready to spill the beans. 😉

When you’ve been waiting for the final video and photos of your latest project. Absolutely stunning shot by Jesse (@minn_dude and @pressplaymediallc) yesterday. I can’t wait to share the rest. If you are local this listing is available in Golden Valley so DM for details.
Black doors add drama – this beautiful black-painted Chatsworth door features a custom wrought iron grille and an openable sash for airflow.
