The whole house was covered in several layers of Golden Girls peach, so painting made a huge difference right off the bat. I love to take old furniture and give it new life, which I did by reupholstering an old loveseat and our two barrel chairs.
The dining room is used everyday for everything from school work and art projects to dinner and snacks. I’m lucky to have an old church pew from my great grandfather’s church which is great for packing a lot of kids around the table.
Every room in our home is washed in color, and the bathroom is no exception. I had a shower curtain made for our bathroom so that we could take it all the way to the ceiling to make the small space feel bigger.
My girls helped to pick out the colors and the fabrics used in their room and it is one of my favorite spaces in our home. The gallery wall is full of projects that we’ve done together and other special things that always jog good memories.
With a major reno several years down the road still, I’ve done little things to refresh our kitchen like displaying my blue and white collection on the open shelves we installed and creating a blue and white rug to brighten up the floor.
Even the basement gets a punch of color against crisp white walls. We recently ripped up the carpet in the basement during a room overhaul and so I painted the floors and the stairs to add some character to an otherwise boring basement space.
Amazing, don’t you think! Are you like me, totally wanting a century-old house now!?! Keep up on the latest at the little black door.
