Lessons from an old farmhouse

Lesson 2: Vintage is cool.

I wish I had appreciated this more while we were actually living in our farmhouse. Check out these cool antique doorknobs! These were the kinds of things that we took for granted in our house.

The tricky thing about vintage, though, is that it sometimes is synonymous with “doesn’t work that well.” Our doorknobs, unfortunately, came apart in our hands. The bathroom doorknob in particular. Try sharing 1 bathroom among 9 people and just see if that doorknob doesn’t get rattled.
