Welcome to the House on Winchester!
Hi…I’m Danelle, the writer behind the House on Winchester.
Welcome and thanks so much for stopping by.
This blog is where I write about all of the happenings around our house. I don’t only write about room makeovers and repurposing projects, but, also have a little fashion and everyday stuff thrown in there, as well, because, us mid-lifers need a little guidance.
With that being said, I’m obsessed with all things home related, from do it yourself projects to simple budget friendly decorating. I love hair, fashion, and anything to help with the old aging process. 😉
I have been with my wonderful wifey, Deb, for about 18 years who shares my same passion for it all.
We buy and sell houses – completing most of the work ourselves, flip furniture, and repurpose things out of other people’s cast-offs. Our DIYs and repurposing projects originally came out of necessity as we wanted really expensive things on a budget of, well…. $0. That budget sort of puts a wrench into any contractor we may want to hire. Deb creates her own masterpieces from her small back yard workshop. I swear, she can whittle a chair out of a used toothpick.
We have 4 grown daughters between us and are moms to a rescue dog, Ivy Rose. Ivy is in every one of the 14,000 pictures on my phone in which she is basically doing nothing. See…
We love antique furniture, white ironstone and rolling pins, and have more collections than I care to admit. We bought a colonial style home fixer upper (understatement) that was built in 1945, acquired by us in 2015 (previous hoarder house).
We focus on decorating in a mix of farmhouse and cottage style, garage sale and flea market finds. This space is where I share my happiness of our projects… our home…. and EVERYTHING that I love.
