House pics

I wanted to show some pictures of my house as it is now.  That way when I post about projects in the future I will be able to go back and see my progress and you can see the progress I have made!!  Some of these rooms I have already done some decorating in.  I have also had some help from my living room.  Which is a large room that I could just not quite picture how to place the furniture.  I am very happy with the result but it still has some finishing touches that need to be done.  Here are a few of the rooms that I have somewhat decorated.

Half bath ( I want to repaint this dark red so that is something on my to do list)


Living room (we painted this room it was originally a yellow like the ceiling which will hopefully be painted white soon)

We still  need curtains, wall hangings, pillows for the couches and a new mantle display (I just  cant quite get the mantle right)

Kitchen ( I actually painted this room myself, It still has some things I want to change but I am happy with it for now!)

I repainted those bar stools in the pic they were originally black and I spray painted them white and recovered the seats in a outdoor damask fabric from Handco9ks

I made the hand towel hanging one the dish washer with my embroidery machine!

These accessories came from Casabella interiors  (my favorite interior design store, They always have wonderful/unique accessories)

This is a cabinet that I purchased off of  craigslist for 50.00 my husband thought I was crazy when we went to pick it up!  But look at her now!!  A simple coat of paint, a little distressing, and some fabric glued to the back!

This is a mushroom arrangement that my lovely friends at Casabella interiors did for me!   I have no experience with arrangements so that might be another craft project I can tackle one day :)

I still  need some curtains for this room but for now I just hung a small oil painting that I purchased at home goods!

Don't you just love the rug!!  Target!

The mirror was a flea market find of only 40.00 I spray painted it yellow and added some brown glaze to bring out the detail.  O and the table was made by my wonderful husband and father in law.  Didn't they do a great job! The whole job took about a day and about 80.00 but I have seen some similar tables for 1200.00 and this thing is HEAVY and solid wood!

Guest bedroom!!  The bedding is from Target!

This vanity was in my grandmothers house and my mother used it when she was a child.  I wanted to paint it but then I decided I liked it in it's natural state!  My grandmother actually refinished this herself decades ago and she kept it in great condition I just couldn't bring myself to cover up all that hard work!

This is the bed in my other guest room.  I haven't  done much to this room and it has a long way to go but I thought I would show you what I have so far.

And...that's it for now.  I have actually done a little to some of my other rooms and will hopefully get those pictures up soon! If you have any suggestions please feel free to comment!!

I love seeing a home come together. Your living room looks great. The color on the walls is beautiful and I love that ottoman. By the way, the mirror in your dining
