So far I have only ever shown you bits and pieces of my home or projects and thought you may want to get a better sense of what it is really like (mostly) LOL all put together. I am usually in the middle of a project or two and can't take a picture until it's done....
here are a few pictures for you to start a mini tour of my home...ENJOY!.
Here is my front door, (red, of course) and my potting bench which is great for seasonal displays.
You can see the "bricks" I sponged on several years ago and this spring I will do a tutorial on how I did it and pics of the whole porch. It is quite easy to do and only took me two days.
And, no I haven't gotten tired of it. I would do it again in a heartbeat!
This is a "rug" I painted on the other side of the porch where a table and chairs sit. Done partly with stencils and partly "freehand." It was easy to paint, (but hard on the KNEES!) LOL.
Now, since I put the "entry picture" in the wrong place (and am terrified to try to change it!) LOL I will just say come in my front door and make a quick LEFT into my Sewing Room. Now I don't want to say this room is small but it was supposed to hold my washer and dryer...and that's all.
So you can see it is only 6 ft long by 4 ft. wide. But it is big enough for me if I have a project that needs sewing done!
Just wanted to show you the "Chickens Rug" in this room. See you can see the "funky" chickens fabric I did a tutorial on it a while back just to the left. That red is also the door to the garage.
So, here's the "entry" picture, so back out of the sewing room, step into the entry, (say hello to the "cat") and turn around to the right and see this little display. There is a mirror (to check me as I go out the door, LOL) and
a little stitchery...
I love this display...got the metal flag from My Colonial Home a long time ago
But I thought you needed to see this message closer...for when Mr. S.O. goes home each evening he needs a reminder! HA!
So leave the entry, turn around and see the kitchen dining area. It's not very big
but just right for Mr. S.O. and me (but mostly he cooks at his house! How lucky can I be!)
But, IF I do cook, this is where I do it. The upper cabinets are BM "Monroe Bisque" and the lower are Ralph Lauren "Hunting Coat Red." They originally were "ugly" oak color in the beginning and I hated them.
I lined the (glass door) cabinets, including wrapping the shelves, with a great all-over pattern fabric in red and cream,
Here's a close up of the "Floor Cloth" I did a couple of years ago. Since my "businessinvolves "houses" I thought it appropriate to do this type of pattern. Partly stencils and partly freehand, (with a ruler. LOL) They are so fun to paint; I'd like to do one for each room, but that's not gonna happen! Well, at least until I see a pattern that would be "just perfect!" Again, LOL
So that, Ladies and Gentlemen, is a Mini Tour of my house. I hope you enjoy it enough to tell me
and soon you will be able to see Mini Tour Part 2.
Thanks so much for visiting.
I hope to see your comments.
