Hey everyone! We are excited to show you a little bit of what has been going on here at the homestead. First of all, Anita, has been away shopping for the past week. While she has been gone, she has left a long list of chores for the painters to complete before she gets back! Don't worry, they will still be painting when she gets back, but it is starting to look really great in the showroom! They have mostly been repainting the ceiling white but also some of the walls are getting a good going over.
nice white ceilings
is becoming white
a little bit of a mess
but not for long!
Come see us soon! We can't wait to show you around!

The most frequented greenhouse due to it’s locality, but more than that, they always have the friendliest staff paired with a beautiful variety in household plants, shrubs, and bushes.

A great place to buy your seed and bird feed. This is where Miriam buys mealsworms to feed “her” blue birds.

This is the best place to buy vegetable plants and herbs at the best price (except for maybe roadside stands).
We are excited to be added a new collection of rugs to our showroom. Many of you know Joanna Gaines, who has a lovely store in Texas, and she and her husband also have Fixer Upper tv series. Joanna collaborated with Loloi Rugs to release a series of rugs. We received our first shipment of rugs a few days ago. Primarily they are the 5x8 size and have some from the Kivi, Lotus, and Brushstoke Collections. Larger sizes can be ordered. Magnolia Home rugs are available three of our loctions - King's Homestead, King's Acres, and Metal and Crate
Matt added a shiplap wall to our new showroom space downstairs.
Here is a quick how to and some pictures
Matt got some 4x8 sheets (not sure what kind of wood) from Paneling Sales and they ripped them into 6" strips. He cut a few boards at 4' and 6' lengths for the first column to create a staggered look and tacked them up with a nail gun and glue to keep the boards from warping. He hot glued 2 quarters together for the horizontal spacing on the strips and 2 nickels for the vertical spacing. Matt started from the bottom of the wall and the top had a bit of a spacing when he was finished and he cut a piece of trip with a some special blade ( I'll have to double check what it was) to cover the top 3 inches or so.
We had a bit of discussion about whether to leave the wall natural or to paint it white. =) The natural color won and although it wasn't my first choice I was tired of painting at this stage and decided it would be good for now. Maybe a winter or two and we can paint it white.
My Mom, Miriam, always finds the best plants for our planters and landscaping.

King's started in the late 70's when my dad, Les King, started selling picnic tables from my grandparents front porch. This picture is the farmhouse from the King's Homestead location. My Aunt Kathy and Grusmommy Lillian took care of most of the sales while Dad was at work building sheds.
