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.
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.
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.
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.
I have been in Waco for three days and I am having a blast. I am also exhausted but in a good way. We have purchased a fixer upper home in Waco, Texas. We are not moving. Instead, I am going to remodel the home, furnish it and rent it on Airbnb. I have been really nervous about the home because I hadn’t actually seen the inside. I know, it sounds dumb, but I did see the outside. And I “kind of” saw the inside via face time with my realtor. So I have been really worried that I would hate the home or that it would have some horrible flaw or that I wouldn’t be able to fix it up.
A lot has been happening with our fixer upper home in Waco. We are still in escrow so I am not going to show any photos yet. I can tell you we bought a double lot with a small house (and room for another if we are really brave). The home was built in 1910 and yes, it is another one-hundred-year-old home.
What a week it has been. I have been house hunting in Waco, Tx. I am looking for a new project, aka a fixer-upper home. I promise we are are not moving. Instead, we are looking for a home to fix up and rent out as a short-term rental. I guess you could say I want this to be my next big project.
