Hello there! Thanks for stopping by! My name is Fawn, and I’m the girl behind Rumfield Homestead. I’m your average twenty-something. I’ve been married for a few years to Ethan, the man behind my big projects and biggest cheerleader. We have one dog, Atlas, who is best known for being a giant dufus. On the weekdays, you’ll find me at school, where I teach first grade. On the weekends, you’ll find me at the salvage shop or a garage sale hunting for junk. I’ve got way too many ongoing projects in my garage, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I do pop-up shows when I can fit it into my teaching schedule, and I have a booth where you can find my stuff anytime at an adorable shop called Farmhouse in downtown Waxahachie, TX. I’ve got a bigger sweet tooth than anyone I’ve ever met, and I love watching musicals and documentaries (interesting mix, I know). I’m not athletic at all, but I can throw down when it comes to baking a pie (we all have our talents, right?).

I started this blog because I was tired of hating my home. My husband and I are renters (for now), and I know how frustrating it can be when you just don’t love where you live. My house doesn’t look like the fancy design magazines I love reading, and truthfully, it doesn’t even look the way I wish it did. But that’s okay, because I’m a real person and I know that behind those fancy magazine photoshoots there isn’t always a real person living a real life in a real home. The focus of this blog is finding small ways that can help you improve your space when you can’t paint or remodel. Here you’ll find small DIY projects and budget decor ideas that can help you love your space just a little more.

    First off I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question which
    I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.
    I’ve had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.
    I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to
    15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?

    I don’t even understand how I ended up below, but I was thinking this post was
    great. I tend not to recognise who you are however certainly you will be visiting a famous blogger in the
    event you are not already. Cheers!

    Hi I just discovered you and I’m fascinated cuz I think I’m an up and coming you! I’ve been married a year, live in a rental and am hoping to start a blog (thecuningwife) because I’m tired of hating my home and think it will help me be inspired to keep trying. Plus I love redoing furniture and cooking new recipes. So far I live your blog, how real you are and how much your life sounds like mine!!
