🌿 It’s my dream to 𝒢𝑒𝓇𝓂𝒶𝓃 𝓈𝒸𝒽𝓂𝑒𝒶𝓇 our little brick cottage. But, it’d be so hard to say goodbye to these wild beauties. We’ve been training the ivy around the house for 6 years now. We trim the top about every 3-6 months but I still love how wild they get. Oh, the beauty. #germanschmear #ivy #ivywall #ivyonbrick #cottagefarmhouse #cozycottage #brickcottage #lmbpresets #englishivy

A favorite pic from last year! Excited to soon start my own German schmear project at my new house. I have two walls that we put Thin Brick on and will start the diy project soon. Stay tuned 💚 Photo courtesy @carolinadesignassociates .

There’s a need to tackle another project. Is this a sickness? A passion? Or maybe simply a desire to always improve on something. No matter which, it’s hitting me hard and something in our house is about to be the subject of my big ideas! Haha. 
Last winter at this time I did this faux brick wall with a German Smear finish, so maybe my DIY urge is a January habit? You can swipe thru to see how this began as a normal plaster wall. The first step was to add the brick paneling and from there it’s all about the texture. (You can find the details on the blog). Time to get busy! .

Do you spy anything different? I always felt like that picture back there needed a little warming up. I felt like it needed a little anchor but I couldn’t fit anything there to anchor it to the ground. So an accent wall was the answer. Naturally. We were going to have a bid done on a thin brick paver wall. The materials alone for this small wall was $340. Pass. Enter @frills_and_drills - she did a faux brick wall in her house. So for $46 I did this small brick wall that warmed up this space a bit. I still have to add a header piece. That I’m going to attempt without the hubs. Fingers crossed I don’t cut off a hand 🙏🏻. Is it perfect? No. Is it permanent? Probably. Because we used liquid nails. So if you hate it, don’t tell me 👌🏻. Also, do you follow @nestingwithgrace? Should I add a light and do her magic light trick?? I’m undecided.

Good Monday Morning! Can't beat starting the work week with a day off;) Sharing a progress pic of the faux brick wall, I have to say that we are pretty happy with it. I gave it a light sanding this morning to expose more of the red. I think a light white wash and final sanding should give us the effect that we are looking for.

Have a great day friends💕

The German Schmear is complete!!! It was really a fun project, It took about a day to do. ( be sure to swipe 👉) to see progress pics. We used real brick facing then we attached it with Power Grab paste & then we used thin set mortar for the Schmear. I absolutely love it 🥰!!! Did any of you complete any projects? Well other then that we’re inside staying warm & cozy. Have a wonderful cozy Sunday everyone.  #manteldecoration #brickfireplacemakeover #brickfireplaceinspiration #whitebrickfireplace #whitedecor #germanschmear #cottagestyle #cottagedecor #farmhouselife #cottagefarmhouse #rusticdecor #recycle #upcycle #thriftyfinds #fireplacedecor #decoration #diningroomdecor #vintagemirror #brickwall #fixerupper #neutraldecor #mantledecor #fivetotenonfriday #vintagedecor #diningroomdecor

Ever since I transformed Averi's fireplace in my Design Project, the #ChicShack, my schedule has become full of custom German Schmear treatments like this one. What I LOVE about this treatment is that it's not only a timeless style, it adds so much light and texture to a room immediately. You cannot go wrong with this look😍😍

Sample are up and the decision is made for our next @romabiopaints Classico project! Going with the far left sample of Ben Moore Seabiscuit with a naturally weathered lightly distressed look. Starting off 2019 with a fun project!! I’ll post some videos of the process, we’re going to use two different dilutions to create some nice texturing. Really looking forward to this transformation!! #romabiopaints #romabio #limewashbrick #limewash #germanschmear #paintedbrick #antiquebrick #houston #memorialhouston

New year, new property to prepare for market. If you follow me, most likely you know what’s gonna happen to that fireplace. Fill in the blank... German _________!

I’ve had a lot of people ask on here how to do brick veneer opposed to wallpaper, I finally added some details to my highlights of Home updating for anyone asking, I hope it helps! 
There’s a lot on there from backsplash, shiplap, faux shiplap paint techniques to come, and decorating 😘

The german schmear brick wall is finished, the kitchen is painted, and I'm slowly getting it back together. It's taking a while due to busy days, and I'm housecleaning every corner. Do you ever think a room looks just fine, until you take a close up look, and start crawling around the floor, or up on ladders and actually see all those areas? I'm thankful that I at least do an annual housecleaning, otherwise I don't know what I'd find! Years ago one of our friends said, regarding all the laundry and cleaning they do, that he can't decide if they are very clean, or very dirty. Ha! Every year when I clean out drawers and reorganize, I always think "well that's done", as if it's done for good and will always remain orderly. Apparently we are messy, because those drawers are always a mess by the following winter!

This was our inspiration pic when refinishing our brick. .

Anyone else have an retro brick house that they’re trying to decide what to do?? We spent way too much time overthinking about painting our brick, lime washing it, schmearing it, or just leaving it. And yes, we got a few “once you cover it you can’t go back” warnings. Who knew it would become such a moral dilemma 😆. .

Ultimately our goal with our house was to give it new/old personality. When you have a 1983 house that has some classic home proportions but is finished without any architectural details (thanks 80’s) you can go one of two ways. You can paint it white, add accents, but keep it simple and it will be a nice transitional refresh. Or you can add in classic architectural details and finishes to give it a more timeless look. Adding in the detail made a difference but with a raked yellow brick...it still felt stuck in the 80’s. Painting or lime washing it at this point would still show the deep raked brick joints, but filling the joints with a light mortar and washing it over the brick would kill two birds 👍🏼. . Check out our stories or highlights to see the schmear process. 
Also, with the #germanschmear technique we could capture some of the character of the brick. We couldn’t be happier with the results. It’s like our house has a new/old soul. .

Thanks so much for all the love on our fireplace makeover. I have the steps and processes we used saved in my stories. This was a DIY I was pretty nervous to tackle because we’ve never done tile or brick work, and we’ve never worked with mortar. Trying new things is scary when it’s permanent and costs money! 😅 I’m so glad we did it, though! It has transformed our living room into a light and bright space.

So thankful to be able to work from home some days. Slippers, yoga pants, coffee in a real mug instead of a to go cup and periodic tending to the laundry. It’s amazing what makes me happy these days!

First project of the new year checked off the list! 🙌🏼 Swipe right to see the before of the fireplace, on the day we moved into the farmhouse. The old oak mantel and black off center tile had to go. (Not to mention the Applebee’s light!😂) I told Chad today that I think this makeover has had such a huge impact on the feeling of the farmhouse. I love the old cottage vibe that the rough mortar gives. I have claimed this as my reading corner. So, what do you think??

 #📸@bluebarnandcottage Who else can agree that this #fireplace is GOALS!? 😍 We love everything about this #cozylivingroom 🙌 From the #germanschmear brick to the window shutters and neutral colors. This living room is just begging us to have a lazy Sunday.

Another view of the finished faux brick wall because I can’t stop staring at it 😍
✨{see the whole process in my story highlights!}✨
You know that feeling when you finally finish up a project that you’ve had on the brain for a loooong time?
Such a weight off the creative shoulders 🙌🙌🙌
I’m still brainstorming with what to hang on it, if anything 🤷‍♀️
But for now just enjoying the fresh new feel in here!

Hello Sunday! Hope you all have had a great weekend. It's been a very productive weekend around our home between home projects, hockey and preparation for back to school tomorrow 💃
With project dining room in full force this weekend, we decided to pick up the sheets of faux brick for the accent wall. We won't get them up today but they are cut and ready for when we are. I am still on the fence about the finish, should I #limewash or #germanschmear ? Any advice is appreciated! Thanks!❤😊

I’ll have you know that deer and pine trees can be seen year round so I will be keeping this guy right here until further notice along with the 48 little trees (slight exaggeration maybe... maybe not) I have scattered about. They are not Christmas... they are winter!! Atleast I’m not defensive about it 😂

Also important... did you notice the German schmear goodness in the background? Seriously.. German schmearing our fireplace has brightened up the entire space.. we are loving it.

Project spruce up the kitchen is underway. I've been thinking this over for months and finally took the plunge. After reading several blogs and tutorials for german schmear, my favorite one was from @ellaclaireblog . Also if you don't follow Kristen, you probably should, and you'll see why when you go check out her IG account and blog. Anyway, these aren't the best photos, I forgot to snap one before we moved furniture around. While my husband was home for Christmas break he hung the brick paneling for me. Which I appreciate more than words can say. We have a great Amish place nearby for paneling, it was less than $17 per sheet, making this project well under $100. (Thanks to those who gave me money for Christmas. 😉) In a nutshell, after the paneling was hung, I used a wallboard joint knife to spread spackling all over. The next day I very lightly sanded it, wiped with a dry cloth, then used a 60/40 white wash to paint it. I'm very happy with the end result. Now I need to paint the whole kitchen and check 1 out of 5 rooms off my paint list for this winter. With that said, I'm in no rush for gardening season to get here.

I could stare at Loren’s home all day. It’s so beautiful and cozy. I just want to snuggle up by that fireplace! @bluebarnandcottage .
.
I love sharing other accounts that I love because they are such inspirations. I don’t have my own pictures to share yet... things are moving slowwwww over here. Drywall is still being worked on. Can’t wait to have beautiful fireplace and living room pictures to share with you all too! 2019 is going to be a great but busy year! 😁

Well, I already knew this but the #germanschmear fireplace was the hit project of 2018! I love it so much and so glad we went for it. Thanks for being here friends! You make the sharing and decorating so much more fun! I hope I can make 2019 even better than 2018, which was my first full year here on IG as @the.hiddenhome. Love you lots!

Making changes for the new year! First my breakfast room in my kitchen .. so dark , one wall a deep olive the rest a golden mustard, I have a love loathe for the dark “primitive “ colors these days , I’m slowly transitioning to lighter brighter , however not ready to throw myself in the land of all farmhouse whites , so there I am caught in the middle and I’m ok with that. I love all aspects of country vintage style , so my whole house represents a little of everything .. this New Years weekend we start with the German Schmear technique, faux brick and white washed with joint compound ! Stay tuned 😀.

The first time I walked into our basement, I said “I already want to rehab that nasty fireplace.” A year and a half later, I finally did! (That’s right, I did. Not my handy man husband, me. - with the help of him mixing the mortar bucket... ) Swipe to see the before photo and the inspiration photo. I loved the look of the inspiration photo but wanted it to look a little darker and a little less feminine since we are going for an industrial look for the rest of the space. So happy with the way it came out-now I just need to decorate 😉  #homerenovation #fireplaceremodel #germanschmear

 #Walkabout in West Philadelphia. 
The 1st photo I took because in NYC, people pay big $ for that technique of spreading cement over brick then wiping it off. #germanschmear
The others are lovely murals and one that juxtaposes new building next to old abandoned one. #WestPhilly #muralart #architecture #hiddenphilly

With the new year approaching it's that time to think about goals. And don't get me wrong, anytime is a good time, however, the new year signifies a fresh start to me. I have been planning, making my lists and absorbing all the inspiration I can. One wee project on my list is the transformation of our dining room. We recently purchased a larger and previously loved table and chairs. The table has been stripped, sanded and stained. We just need to get the chairs sprayed out in a nice gloss black. In addition to this, my plans are to either paint(hopefully shiplap) the walls white, add an accent wall of faux brick with german schmear technique, jute rug, new light fixture and new diy accents....phew! 😂Updates to follow! Thanks for listening to me ramble on! What are some of your plans or goals for 2019?
Have a great night folks!

I don't know about you guys, but I'm ready for simple and cozy decor vibes! 
I mean yeah, I still have my Christmas decor up but hopefully Sunday I can start to work on that whole deconstruction process 🤞😬
But here's the cold, hard truth....I kinda need & want to wait until I have a free weekend, like a whole weekend. I've been running non-stop for months now and things are UGLY!! Like let's all have a moment of silence for my basement {......} because it's taken the brunt of my terrible abuse! 🤦
What I'm saying here, is I really need to take the time and organize the chaos! All the strewn about florals and random chachkies that are stuffed here, there and everywhere! That way I can have a fresh start and actually be able to shop my home and make things nice and cozy vs the obvious alternative of looking spastically for something specific to fill the empty spaces and realizing I have no idea where it's at and just randomly filling those voids with oddball things.

Anyone else feeling this same way? Are we in the CRU Group (Chaos 'R' Us), together?

Swipe left to check out my holiday project! < —— .
.

I was so late in the decorating game because of the move from tiny home to sticks and bricks. But I did manage to get our fireplace “schmear” and to also get up a “flocked” Christmas tree 🙈 and decorate our mantle. Which I’ve been dying to have for the last 10 years!!
.
.
This all happen 2 days before our family was hit with the stomach flu 😵🤢. This will be the 2nd year in a row we’ve been sick for Christmas. .
.
But now that we are all on the mend, I’m ready for some routine and order again!! Who else is with me... 🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️

Merry Christmas my friends! Unto us a Child was born! The light of the world. 🙌🏻 My prayer for each of you is that today you feel the love of Christ and are blessed immensely by His goodness. 💫

“And the angel said to them, "Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger." And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!"”

Let the feasting begin 😋

My latest project. German schmear is all the rage. I wasn’t sure if it was exactly what I wanted because I’m slightly OCD and can’t always handle all the schmear 😂 I feel like this could be a pretty good happy medium. As always- do what you love. The end. 😍 I literally cannot wait to show the before and after of this room. The before was truly hideous to my eyes!

My style is so all over the place...I loved the clean lines of the last fireplace post, but this farmhouse brick with a German Schmear has me 😍😍😍😍. I’ve heard the technique for the German Schmear is not that difficult. Have you ever tried it??? PC: bluebarnandcottage

We’ve been in our house for...over 8 years now, and I’m embarrassed to admit that we still have rooms yet to be remodeled. The saying “the cobbler’s children have no shoes” gets old btw so kindly refrain from saying this.😆
.
Life has happened here, and it’s been good. We’ve finally gotten most of our exterior done so it’s finally starting to “feel” finished. I’ll story the process of our #germanschmear not painted brick. It was easy...sort of. .

Sharing a little night time view of my fireplace and Christmas tree! 🌲The glow of the tree is my favorite. ☺️ Just now I noticed that I didn’t light the candles before snapping this 📸.

This little corner is the coziest spot in our home & our favorite place to be this time of year. 🔥 Just picked my girl up from school and we’re officially on Christmas break! 🙌🎄 Starting off this rainy afternoon with a fire, cozy blankets, hot chocolate and a Christmas movie. .
Some of you have asked if we have a TV and we do. I intentionally crop it out of photos 🙃, but it sits on built-in shelves to the left of this fireplace. What’s your favorite Christmas movie? We’re watching Miracle on 34th Street, but Elf and Home Alone are my two favorites. ❤️ Happy Thursday! .
PS - if you’re interested in how I did the German Schmear technique on our fireplace, I saved a how-to to story highlights. .

I finallllllllly put something on my chalkboard after months of having it bare. Also, a ton of my lights are going out here, but I worked realllllly hard wrapping this thing in jute a few years ago, so I’m not giving up on it just yet, and instead will be switching out bulbs when they go on clearance after Christmas 😂
