Meet: Lesli from My Old Country House. Lesli is an artist and does beautiful custom portraits (I love the pets and animals! Awe!). She’s also an actress, nurse, mom, CITY and COUNTRY girl and DIY’er. I love her blog…where she “finds extraordinary beauty in the most unlikely places, all under one leaky tin roof”. A 130 year old farmhouse = lots of DIY! I love her modern country style.
Check this out:
“When we first moved into Our Old Country House, the sweet lady across the street had a bedroom set on her front lawn with a “for sale” sign. I asked her how much and when she found out it was for us, “the new neighbors with all cute the little kids”, she said“Oh, for you, Just $40”.
So we got a headboard, a bed side table and a dresser. DEAL!
Presently the bedside table still lives in my daughters room…
The headboard, has been upholstered by me and is in my Sons room

wow! the after dresser is beautiful and I am loving the striped wall.
Definitely worth keepine! 13 grand? That's highway robbery to this DIY girl! The re-do loves every bit as lovely…
Beautiful! I especially love the red dresser with turquoise handles *Swoon*
What a great after! I'm also terribly fond of cow pictures.
I want to paint a cow. I need to find time to paint again. Maybe if I feature something I've done in the past, it will motivate me to get at something new. I want to paint a cow!
Painting Cows is addictive! Once you start…you will never want to stop! Thanks for the kind words!
So lovely, esp. love the Grey and Cream dresser, that is one of my favorite color combos. Thanks for sharing.
Beautiful after…and I'm loving all of the animal art too!!! Heather
