I am a huge fan of open kitchen shelving. It’s not because I have had open shelves in my kitchen for years. In fact, I just put them in our Waco Airbnb home a few months ago. (I still need to paint my shelves so be patient with me if you can.) But I have wanted open kitchen shelves for years and I can’t wait to share with you five reasons why open shelves work so well.

The Waco Airbnb is Ready

My dream for our Waco Airbnb is to create a vacation home where our home feels like yours. I have poured my heart into this home and I love everything about it. 

Waco Airbnb Master Bedroom

It is finally happening. Today is the official day that our home is available to reserve on Airbnb. At 8:00am PST today you can click on the menu at the top of this page that says BOOK WACO AIRBNB. Follow the link to make a reservation. It’s that simple.

I thought it might be fun to take you on a tour of our Waco Airbnb rental. It’s a one hundred year old home that has been completely redone. Every single thing was redone. Fortunately, we were able to use the original wood floors, the wood ceilings, and the shiplap. There are lots of “before” photos on my blog if you want to see what it used to look like.

My Secret Life as an Abstract Artist

I started this blog three years ago because I wanted to paint abstract art that looked good in farmhouse style homes. It took me three years, but I finally painted some paintings for our Waco Airbnb.

abstract art

I am an artist who paints abstract art. Who knew! Previous to th8is job, I was a full-time artist. I traveled all over the country teaching art and art marketing workshops. I had a website, Instagram, a weekly podcast, blog and sold a lot of art. Three years ago I was watching my favorite show Fixer Upper and it occurred to me that there was hardly any art in the Fixer Upper homes. It was that day that I decided to start a new Instagram called My 100 Year Old Home. My goal was to build a following of about 5000 followers and then paint a collection of abstract art that would fit in farmhouse-style homes.
