Our Home

Have you ever wanted to peek inside someone’s house?

I admit that I’ve been to open houses in my neighborhood so I could do just that. (I know I’m not the only one because I’ve had realtors tell me after our open house that some of our neighbors showed up!)

Well, here is a little peek inside our house today. I say “today” because, as you know, I’m constantly tweaking as our needs and lifestyle change.

Without further adieu, here is the grand tour:

Front entry

antique milk  jug; spray-painted bench; vintage mirror from my childhood with book page pinwheels; assorted pillows, including two black floral outdoor pillows from Target and a stenciled burlap pillow; wooden mail/newspaper tote


Dining room

 silk curtains from Target, chandy from Lowe’s, painted table, thrifted chairs, the giant picture that’s going with me to my nursing home someday


bundt pan from my childhood, chalkboard, chicken wire basket, vintage meat grinder and juicer (on top of cabinets), glass canisters from Walmart, the 7-minute transformation that my hubby hated

Back entry/mudroom

chalkboard wall 

Laundry room

hand-painted chalkboard Laundry sign, gallery wall, lined baskets from Hobby Lobby with chalkboard labels

Master bedroom

thrifted round mirror, antique nightstand, fake greenery, Shabby Chic for Target bedding, ruffled pillow, sheets as curtains, large leaning mirror (not pictured)


Boys bedroom

not pictured: map wall art on dresser


gallery wall, noticeboard; not pictured:  little blue table, green distressed armoire, orange chair, black cabinet


Main bathroom

spray painted mirror from Walmart, painted vanity cabinet with added feet, botanical print from eBay in a thrifted frame
