Take a walk through this charming farmhouse fixer upper

Due to the busyness of life it is important to seek out moments of quiet and simplicity.  This can be done in small daily changes or by a life-changing restructuring.  The latter is the type of change that Deena, of Our Rustic Charmer, and her husband choose.  In the years following the construction of their dream home they both found themselves longing for a simpler life.  That desire influenced their design to downsize to a 30-year old fixer upper.  Their new home, filled with charm and coupled with Deena's eye for design is the epitome comfortable farmhouse living. 
The kitchen and dining room feature hardwood floors and Shaker-style cabinetry with a few rustic elements like a custom sliding barn door. Add touches of shiplap, brass fixtures and a touch of glam and you have a gorgeous home that will have you wanting to become a follower on Instagram.

When the location is right and the structure of the home is sound, a little elbow grease and a lot of heart can transform that childhood residence into a home for the future.
