    Is Your Home Plain?
    Where Do I Start?
    Tired Of Wasting $$$$$

    Who Am I?

    I am Nicole Francis! When we brought Little Miss home from the hospital, Michael and I quickly realized that we were bursting at the seams of our house. Having Hazel (dog), Lucy (cat), and lots of baby paraphernalia made our tiny house feel even smaller. We started looking for our next “Home Sweet Home” and we quickly realized that what we wanted we wouldn’t be able to get in our area.

    So since we knew we could tackle small-scale DIY projects in our last builder-grade home, we decided to do it again, just on a much BIGGER scale, and with that, 1776 Faux Farmhouse started!

    BUT 👏🏻IT 👏🏻 DOES 👏🏻

Michael had his doubts about using kitchen cabinets to make a sideboard, trust me he told me upfront, several times in fact😂. But I knew the potential and I knew that I could build it.

I had some hiccups along the way, BUT I did this. ME! I am so glad that I didn’t put the money I used to buy one from the store because I learned so much about myself and I wouldn’t trade that for anything. 

Don’t be afraid to push yourself outside of your comfort zone this year! It’s worth it. Have faith in yourself and “build the sideboard”. ✨ 

Make sure to check out my sideboard plans highlight bubble so that you can recreate this piece in your home WITHOUT the hiccups that I experienced my first time. You’ll have the tips and tricks that I wish I had, in both written and video instructions, to make this piece phenomenal!

    Do you think a neutral home is a boring home? 

Obviously, I’m a little biased over here, but a neutral home is my type of home ✨

    I mean someone has to take care of the kids, right? 🤣

Which one are you in your relationship? 

And let’s get real, nothing like Clark Griswold to convey the message 🫠🤣😭

    Three-Sided Faux Beam Casing ✨

One of my most requested projects to date is our faux beam casing, which I can totally see why! It’s a beginner friendly project that completely transforms the space with texture and character. 

Not only do I have an entire blog post written on this project, but I have step-by-step video footage in my Faux Beam highlight bubble! 

So much better than a door a right?!

Never underestimate a woman with an end goal, especially when she’s stubborn.  It may bite ya in the 🍑
