#throwbackthursday. Here's a blogpost I never published from 2015.
OK--It's confession time. I was excited to decorate this house because it reminded me so much of a Chip and Joanna Gaines house #FixerUpper. From the grey and white colors to the barn doors to the fixtures to the shiplap (yes- even SHIPLAP!)...everything made me ecstatic! Oh...And there is the fact that I am a huge JoJo wannabe! I went to her store -Magnolia Market- this fall and loved every minute! But I digress....Let's get to the pictures, eh?
Here is the beautiful dining room!
Complete with a sliding barn door to a butler's pantry - how fancy is that?!?!
I handcrafted that GIANT 9 Foot farmhouse table...with a little help from my super hot hubby!
Here is the butler's pantry. It has a custom shiplap wall, butcher block island and room for another fridge!
I decided to stick with white couches and a light color palette to help balance out the dark floors.
I added in small pops of color to keep things interesting.
Isn't the light in this house DELICIOUS!?!?!?!
No, this picture is not deceiving you...there are TWO islands in this kitchen!
Why two? Well, WHY NOT!?
Be still my heart...Don't you just L-O-V-E those green metal barstools??
Prepare yourself for the cutest office EVER!
I bought that floor lamp in pieces...I saw that "awesome vintag-ey rustic" tripod at a garage sale last summer and picked it up for $1. That's right. One Dollar. I went to the hardware store and bought a lamp kit for $4.99. (I watched a quick You Tube video to learn how to wire the lamp)Then, I found that JUMBO lamp shade at the Goodwill for $0.99.
So, for a grand total of $6.99 I now have a fabulously cool vintag-ey rustic floor lamp!
Talk about a GIANT bedroom.. Oh my Word!
HUGE. Ginormous. Spacious...I can't come up with any more words that describe big bedrooms. I decided to use a VERY neutral color palette for the Master Bedroom. I wanted all white, gray, ivory, beige, gold, silver, etc. It was so soft and romantic in there. :) I went back and forth trying to decide WHERE to put that bed in that HUGE room. I ended up going right in front of the window. I knew by hanging the curtains about 18 inches above the actual window it would make the window appear larger and really create a great focal point right when you walked into the room.
It really is a lovely home in a fabulous area! I'm sure it will sell quickly!
I got these chairs for a STEAL! $15 for the pair! My sister helped sew new covers for the cushions! Aren't they preshy?!?
