Our Home

 Welcome to our home! We are slowly making our old (15 years) home to a more updated and new home for us. Hope you enjoy your visit. Thanks for coming by!

THE LIVING ROOM

A little reading area to fill an empty corner.

The piano is usually hiding under zillions of music books and sheet music. I cleaned it off for this picture!

THE FOYER

 

We decorated above the front door with some of my favorite family photos. The saying and family name are vinyls we bought at Just the Frosting Vinyl Decor.

THE DINING ROOM
Because blue is my favorite color, I think I deserve ONE blue room. The dining room is my beautiful blue room.

You can see the tutorial of the centerpiece here .

THE FAMILY ROOM
The family room is the hub of our house. We eat, play games, watch movies, laugh, pray, cry, and talk in this room together as a family. It’s my favorite room! The walls are painted a warm green (Mint Frost by Valspar). The Craigslist couch is eggplant color and is so comfy! I bought a leather ottoman to replace an old Craigslist coffee table that had seen better days. I recovered the top of the ottoman to tie in the green and eggplant. You can see how I did it here. I also “no” sewed the matching pillows. You can see how I did it here.
A project we are very proud of is the built-in bookcases. You can read all about them here.

We recently revamped our fireplace. When we built our house, we thought a tv niche above the fireplace was a good idea. Twelve years later, we hate it!! I miss having a mantle to decorate. So we closed up the niche, added a mantle, and added a plank wall where the niche used to be. You can read all about it here.

DAUGHTER #1’S BEDROOM

We transformed the boys’ room to the girls’ room while we were waiting to bring the girls home to the Forever Family. You can read about our journey here.

DAUGHTER #2’S BEDROOM

When we decided to let Daughter #2 have her own room, we had fun planning her new hide away. She loves the colors teal and purple and her favorite animal is a peacock. Well, we had fun with that! Take a look…..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The laundry room was one of the dreariest rooms in our house. But sadly, I spend a lot of time in there so I thought I’d cheer it up a bit.

The second bathroom found upstairs between Daughter #1 and Daughter #2’s bedroom also known as “The Boys’ Bathroom” or  “The Fishy Bathroom” was a little too young for the kids so I thought I’d make it a little bit more grown up and classy.
