Old Time Farmersville…Bains-Honaker House 1867

The Christmas parade was cancelled today due to the rain, but the

historic Bains-Honaker House was open for tours! I had been wanting to

see inside this home that I often walk by so I was happy to get to take the

tour! It was built in 1867! Guess I had better join the Historic Society…

The tag says that this child, Katie Neathery, died at 8 in 1883! So sad how many died from lack of penicillin

Is it Black…or is it White, or is it Black and White?

The cabinets are installed! It’s really starting to look like a kitchen again!

This is my first time to do something other than all white so it is a bit

unnerving, but I hope once it is all put together, it will be beautiful!

Tomorrow morning, the floors get sanded, filled, and I guess stained.

By Monday or Tuesday I will be able to walk on my new floors…

My wonderful fabricator came today to measure for the counters but

they probably won’t be installed until after Christmas… but that’s ok

I’m not expecting Santa to come down the chimney or anything else

equally exciting…)

I had wanted this pantry/fridge cabinet to be in the white but IKEA is changing the whole cabinet system so they were sold out of them. Thus the black surround for the fridge and pantry… it’ll be ok
