This Old House Magazine Cover…Yes ME!


This Old House

Could someone pinch me please?! :0)

You guys remember a while back when I said I had a HUGE announcement? Well this was it, and I’ve had to keep it a secret since JULY!!   (I thought I would explode!!)  The window seat that I built, is on the COVER of the October issue of This Old House Magazine, and there’s a featured article on page 92 AND 93!!  Gah! 

How do I build a window seat

I have known since July that my window seat was going to be in the magazine, but I didn’t know until a while later it was up for the cover!  It was between me and three other people, and I’m very humbled to say mine made it….blessed I tell ya!   I only found out last week that it made the cover, so this is all crazy new and exciting! (and I think I squealed out loud when the note came in the mail that mine was going to be on the cover!)

How to Build a Window Seat

I didn’t know until the end of the day of shooting that they were going to put a picture of me in the magazine too….I barely have on any make-up!! I was very happy when they said the picture was going to itty bitty! :0)

This Old House window seat

I have been curled up on my window seat much of the afternoon reading and re-reading the article!  I’m so honored and excited all rolled up into one.

This Old House

I’ll do a post soon on the behind the scenes pics I took and introduce you to some really nice people that helped make that cover happen…great folks!

OH..if you want a copy of the magazine, you can get them at Lowes! Our Lowes hadn’t gotten them on the stands yet, but it’s the October issue to it should be out there anytime now. 

Blessings

Hollie @ I'm Busy Procrastinating said...

That is so amazing, Missy. You deserve to be so proud. Will there be enough TOH magazines left on newsstands around this area for the rest of us to get one, or will you have bought them all up? Ha ha. My FIL is a subscriber, and I read his when I go over to his house, so I'll be sure to let him know that I met the person whose home is featured on the cover!

Mrs. Jones from the Circus said...

Ack! That's so cool!!!
When I was reading my magazine, I gravitated the the "before" picture first. I thought 'I know that room...'.
Congratulations!!!!

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...
