Melodie's Little Farmhouse - A Mobile Home Remodel

Melodie's Little Farmhouse

A few years ago, 
Melodie and her husband set a goal to become debt free. 
They sold their site built home for a nice profit and 
paid cash for this 1995 Double Wide Mobile Home.

As you'll see over the next few days,
they are extremely creative and have added farmhouse
style to every inch of this home.

Today, I'm sharing their Beautiful 
Dining Room

I love the simplicity ... it's timeless.

The couple built their harvest table 
about five years ago using materials from Lowes.

She said, "it's been ultra durable ... like no other".

Melodie's candlestick collection - beautifully displayed.

I love the old window panes hanging in the windows.

Can you imagine this room set up for Thanksgiving dinner?
I sure can.

The real charm of this room comes from 
the time-worn pieces Melodie has picked up
at salvage yards, garage sales, thrift stores etc.

Dining Chairs
$20.00 each at a junk store
(She cleaned, stained & upholstered them)

Upholstered Chairs
$10.00 each at a garage sale
(She cleaned, painted & recovered them) 

The Church Pew 
came from an individual 
(She has two - the other one is on her porch)

The Green Hutch
came from the Salvation Army.
(She painted it and added the darling knobs)

The hutch houses the dishes Melodie has collected over 
the years, again from garage sales, thrift stores ... etc.

The Dining Room is only the beginning...
there is so much more to see, so be watching for updates.

Melodie says they are very proud of this home and feel blessed
that they don't owe the bank ... it belongs to them.

  1. Wow! Absolutely stunning and the porch is inviting! Looking forward to future pictures! I can just imagine decorating it for Christmas!

    1. I know! Isn't it wonderful! Maybe we can persuade her to share her Christmas decor with us. :)

  2. What a wonderful remodel! Absolutely amazing. If I could pick my favorite thing it would be the windows.

    Or the table.

    Or the chairs.

    Oh, never mind. It's too hard to choose.

    Looking forward to the next posting!

    1. I know, Carla! I couldn't help but think of you when I saw her floors ... know you and Joe have thought about something similar. Her house is amazing, for sure!

  3. Wow! This home is absolutely stunning! Sounds like she feels the same way I do...I'll gladly live in my mobile home to be mortgage free! :)

  4. I know Melodie and her husband so it's exciting to see their home featured on this site. I have witnessed the hours of dedicated labor they have invested in their humble and charming home. They are such a great couple too, so talented, innovative, lively, fun and great neighbors. Congrats to you both.

    1. Thank you for your comment Patti .... What a blessing to have Melodie and Steve as your neighbors. Even though she and I have only communicated by email, I feel like we are kindred spirits. It's good to hear from someone who actually knows this super talented couple. Thank You, again!

  5. Hi Geneva, love that talented Melody. All very ver y classy. My favorite is that wonderful green hutch

  6. How wonderful! I loved the floor. The whole room is lovely and has so many great elements. Job well done. I look forward to seeing the rest of the house.

    The porch is really nice too!

    Thanks for sharing ~ FlowerLady

  7. What a charming dining room, Geneva. I really like the painting with the red flowers. And that green hutch is lovely too.

    Thanks for sharing these pictures with us. It looks like a welcoming home.

    love, ~Sheri

  8. The dining room is just lovely and such a great size,too. Like I said before-you would never believe this is a mobile home. I also love the exterior. They have done a great job with everything. LOVE it!!! xo Diana

  9. I love seeing other people's manufactured homes decorated in farmhouse style. This one is beautiful!! We also live in one and my goal is that once people step foot inside they completely forget the fact that it's a mobile home. I'm getting there...little by little. : )

    1. Melodie is certainly an inspiration to all of us who enjoy the "Farmhouse" style. I'm heading over to your blog to see your home...feeling excited! xo

  10. How pretty this is. They have done a wonderful job adapting the space to this lovely dining room. Thanks for sharing at Home Sweet Home!

  11. Love her style! A lot of people think that mobile homes are just a trailer. Not so! My mom and dad bought one after dad retired and it was gorgeous. Her style was more fancy, but Melodies style is simply gorgeous! Love, love that table and her other collected pieces. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  12. Did you guys replace the windows?If so what kind..
    Love, Love, Love this redo...thanks for sharing!!

  13. Just sharing my two piece regarding mobile homes. I've just decided to buy myself a 2 bedroom mobile home and I think it's one of the best ideas I've had. I've saved up on this and I'm so pleased that it finally happened. Manufactured homes are I think better than traditional ones since they are easier on the pocket and you get what you really want. I say, leave your comfort zone and explore other options! For more information, hop on to:
