Home Tour

We bought our house July 23, 2012, and I am just getting started.
All rooms are a work in progress!

Our Home:

 Family Room:

This room is the center of the house.  When you enter the front door into the foyer, it is the first room you see.  There is access to the playroom, hallway, living room and eat in kitchen. The paint colors are Valspar, Spa Pool and Montpelier Ashlar Grey.  On the mantle is a clock that I made.  We are working on building a custom media center that I designed.


The Hallway is off the Family Room.  It leads to 2 bedrooms a bathroom and a linen closet.  It is painted Valspar Mountain Smoke.  This color is 2 shades darker than the Valspar Montpelier Ashlar Gray I painted in the Family Room. View my post about the Hallway Makeover.

Eat in Kitchen:

Did you notice that there is not a picture of the sink? I didn't want to do the dishes.  The kitchen entryway wall color is Whispering Wind by Olympic.  I painted the mirror teal and added bright colored flowers.  I placed colored glass bottles (from Kirkland's) and a framed picture to add color on the shelf.  I found these great counter height stools at Home Depot on clearance.  I sewed the box pleat valance using a fabric from Premier Prints.  It's called Annie in Eaton Blue/ Kelp Linen.  There is a desk and computer the kids use to do homework.  Did you notice the chalkboard I painted on the pantry door? The extendable table and chairs is made by Ashley Furniture it is part of the Hayley Collection.  Currently, the candle sticks I repainted live on this table. The wall color is Valspar Montpelier Ashlar Grey.

Master Bedroom:

 The curtains and hardware are from J.C. Penney's.  The 8 pc bedding set is from Target.  The wall color is Whispering Wind by Olympic.  I painted the ceiling fan blades to match the furniture.  To read about the master bedroom transformation click here.
