In short order the fixture was making a statement over their kitchen island. In similar rustic fashion, hog panel railing originally used to keep pigs in their place - looks downright elegant as a stair railing, and the 4x4 squares just happen to perfectly comply with code. Brandi has a particular fondness for old windows and uses them as dramatic wall hangings throughout her home, but she stepped up her game in the greenhouse, whose walls aren’t walls at all. “I went to Habitat for Humanity and bought a ton of windows and doors and laid it out how I wanted it on the driveway and then Jon built it for me,” she says. “He built the frame and then he screwed all the windows and doors together.” The Wards have since embarked on a new design adventure just down the road, where Brandi is busy putting her distinctive stamp on a fifthwheel trailer the family of four will call home while their future forever home is under construction.

Brandi designed this greenhouse fit for a fairy using windows and doors salvaged from Habitat for Humanity. The roof is corrugated acrylic and the floor is fashioned from reclaimed brick. Jon built hanging shelves using i-joists left over from construction of the main house, creating the perfect sunny perch for seedlings awaiting their turn to take root in the garden beyond.

Brandi's tips for creating a farm fresh feel in any space: • A fresh, neutral palette is the way to go. Think whites and wood tones with touches of fresh greenery here and there. • Take it one room at a time, and start with a clean slate. • Build a look using pieces that tell your story, whether they be treasured family heirlooms or simple knickknacks that fit the narrative. • Above all else, strive for surrounding yourself and your family with objects that bring joy and memories of happy times.
