More Photos of Vintage Knotty Pine Walls

Our vintage knotty pine walls seem to be drawing some amount of interest from the blog's followers, and so I thought I would share a few more photos today.  If you peek into the office where I'm writing, you can see the knotty pine continues throughout the entire room.

Don't you just love  rounded passageways? It's one of the quirks we enjoy in this 1940's home.

Continuing through the office to the top of the stairwell is another spot worth sharing.  It's a delightfully vintage built-in linen cupboard.

Even the inside walls of these cupboards is knotty pine.  I moved some blankets aside so you can see the back wall of one of the shelves:  

Such solid craftsmanship can be found in older homes. My family is embraced by the warmth of knotty pine.

I thought I'd share one of the other rooms that we worked on recently.  This entryway, which is from the side door into our house, needed a fresh coat of paint.  The space is brightened with cheerful white paint. 

Rest assured, this side entry doesn't have knotty pine.  We would never paint over the wonderful pine walls! Instead, the wall paneling in here is sheet goods - the sheets of wall board that were put in this room were an ugly, unpainted light brown with a rippled texture. Very vintage but not in a pleasant way. I don't care much for this type of wood paneling but it's what we've got and there is a lot of it in some of the rooms.  Since the wood paneling had never been painted, it absorbed multiple coats of sealer and paint.  In all, it took five coats to get decent enough coverage.
We also hung a few hooks around the house.  Funny how much a hook feels like an accomplishment.  The hook below is especially nice because it gives a place for big winter coats to hang upon entering the house.  Before the hook, coats were being thrown over doors between rooms.  That meant you had to duck around a coat to pass by from one room to the next.  

There's something about a rooster hook that brings cheer to our old farmhouse.

Knotty pine walls e-book

In the book, which you can download and view now, you'll discover how we stumbled upon our unique home. The house was once part of a dairy farm, but it had fallen into disrepair over the years.  Despite the sad state of the house, the solid planks of knotty pine throughout were still in great shape. Included are photos of the renovation plus many more photos of each of the eight rooms decorated. Click to see the book on Amazon.

We invite you to download your copy of the book, which follows our journey as we share what we learned while renovating and decorating a house with its vintage knotty pine walls. See photos of our rooms from start to finish and throughout the seasons.
