Home Sweet Home: Great Room Reveal

our entry

view from the front door and an industrial cart I picked up from The Vintage Marketplace in Rainbow CA

My ‘distressed’ kitchen table. It was a beautiful natural wood tone, but that was long gone once it flopped out of the hubs’ pickup truck when a motorcycle cut him off. Note to self… always strap craigslist items down unless you want the whole ‘road rash’ look.

Anyway, I decided to make my own chalk paint… DIY coming soon.

the floors really are fan-freakin-tastic!

Dutch Door… I heart you.

Last thing TBD… tin ceiling…. still haven’t decided on how to finish them, or I could always leave them unfinished. Decisions, decisions, decisions.

My hand distressed and antique glazed cabinets.

living room…. or as the hubs calls it the ‘laying naked by the fire on a bear skin rug’ room.

the wall-to-wall built-in bookcase the hubs did. Made out of IKEA bookcases no less. He fashioned up some fancy trim and they really look great. They give me plenty of play. I mean display space. Does anyone else love to make vignettes around the house? Sometimes I feel like a shopkeeper. And I like it

Book nook… out of IKEA coffee tables. Now I just need to find some more coke crates to fit underneath.

See what I mean by vignettes?! They are everywhere. But that is what makes a home a home.

of course, we can’t leave out Lou with the attitude… every little girl has to have a pink 50’s kitchen.
