Tucked away on a quiet, woodsy road near the Coast of Maine, I came upon a small abandoned cottage at the edge of a meadow. I purchased the house in June 2012 and immediately began renovating the home and nine acres of land. On April Fools' Day 2013, however, everything changed! Not only has my home been reconstructed almost overnight, I have as well! I invite you to join this experience with me as I journal about the miracles along the way.

Trim On A Whim
A few weeks ago I visited our local Habitat For Humanity Restore and not only did I find my new bathroom lights (which I'll share about next week), but I also found some wooden rosettes which I just couldn't pass up! Initially I had no intention of adding rosettes to the trim but after paying only ten cents a piece for them, why wouldn't I? After removing and then reusing the existing trim, I felt the rosettes would dress up the trim around all the windows and doors.
First I primed each rosette....
And then after pulling all the nails from the trim, I sanded and primed each piece.
This is how each window looks with the rosettes and the reused trim. Michael made each sill from new poplar wood.
Here is a close-up. Now I just have to fill the holes and paint it all!
