I am bored today. It’s too hot to work outside. I don’t feel like cooking or doing laundry. How about a house tour to spend your Sunday afternoon? It’s been a long time since I posted pictures of the inside of our house. Things are coming along, although probably not as fast as I would like.
The first room I worked on was our oldest son’s bedroom.
There are many windows in this room, it makes for difficult lighting. I decided to paint it a darker color to make it feel more intimate. Red is my signature color, you will see dashes of it throughout the house.
I like to mix my own paint colors from odds and ends or thrift store finds. I call this Tuscan Olive.
The kitchen/dining room is rather small. We don’t even all fit around the dining table. We make do, anyway.
I use wine boxes with castors attached for keeping shoes under the buffet.
The pot rack you see is really just a rusty old wire basket from the antique mall. We turned it upside down and hung pots from it with shower curtain hooks. We added open shelves to a blank wall for extra storage.
We are a musical family, and the music lounge makes good use of a rather dead space next to the Man Cave and the half bath.
I cut apart an old flag and framed it for this wall. It gives the room a “Born In the USA” type feeling, don’t you think? Any Springsteen fans out there?
The master bedroom is very small. I have made some toile curtains from vintage fabric, and use the extra scraps for my jewelry organizer.
Venus helps keep me organized, she was a gift from Italy.
In writing this post, I realized I have some serious cleaning to do before I can up load more pictures. But since it’s a holiday weekend, it can wait until tomorrow.
