First off, I removed the cabinet doors in front of my sink and had a cute little linen curtain made on etsy. Love the way it turned out. The cabinet doors will probably go back on as soon as Brooks is mobile until he can understand not to get in there!
Spring mantle with fun new vintage windows. LOVE the blue paint on the tall one. I also made rag garland out of fun spring fabric but this was an earlier pic and I am too lazy to download a new one!
The large 28 is from an old printing press. This is one of my favorite things ever. It is Bo's birthday and I just love the age of it. I am still on the lookout for a 7 and 8 for Abby Kate and Brooks' birthdays. And the washboards were purchases we made recently too that I love.
Adore this lamp I found at Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago. I am super struggling with styling this buffet. My BFF interior designer may be coming by this weekend and I am going to have to pick her brain! I want fun and unusual and of course vintage but have NO vision. It is one of the only things left in the house to decorate!
Not sure if I had a good pic of these in the first house post but found these antique shutters on a trip to the lake last summer and though I had NO clue where I would put them, I LOVED the color, age, etc...and am SO SO glad I purchased them. They are truly one of my favorite things in our home!
Abby Kate's room.
I know the lighting is terrible in this one. Just so you can see the shape and she LOVES the chandy in her dormer! I am about to repaint the pale pink chairs around her little table. The table and 2 of the chairs were mine when I was a little girl.
This is the play area at the top of the stairs outside of the kids bedrooms. It was supposed to be a narrow hallway and am so thankful and the backside was supposed to overlook the living room. We are SO SO glad we floored this. It makes an EXCELLENT play space. We spend hours up here.
Mirrors are from Wisteria, cheap galvanized outdoor lights from Home Depot, rug is from Urban Outfitters and shower curtain from West Elm.
This dormer was also supposed to not be finished but I am so glad we went ahead and floored it too. This ledge with hooks we had in our entry over an old church pew in our old house and I love that it fits perfectly here. I love the space it gives and we use the changing table every night after baths!
Bo's room. This room is about to get a huge makeover once Brooks moves in! I have so many ideas and am excited to see it finished! Think vintage in every way!
Again horrible lighting! Sorry!
LOVE this ceiling fan in their room!
School area. Wanting to do something fun on this window some day.
Finally have rocking chairs on the porch! My sweet parents and brother and SIL got them for us for our birthdays! AMAZING gift!
Bobby made/hung this tire swing and it is now my kids 2nd favorite place in the world (first being our trampoline!)
We FINALLY finished the chicken wire for our upper cabinets. Though it isn't a super dramatic change, I LOVE that it is finished and love the final result. SO glad when things turn out how you imagine in your head!
And another fav, finally ordered these canvases of my babies from Mpix during one of their sales and ordered the subway art canvas from RedLetter Words that I have wanted for ages. LOVE this as well. LOVE seeing my babies in the one place in the house I spend the majority of my time!
My next project is our bedroom. We have matching furniture that is about to get a huge makeover with Annie Sloan chalk paint (in different colors) and new hardware. I would love to sell our headboard and footboard and get an iron bed (eyeing the coleman bed from Pottery Barn but would have to sell our bed for around that price). A few new vintage finds for the walls and new/old quilt for the bed and should be finished!
Thanks for looking friends. I would still LOVE for you to come visit any time!
