home tour {spring 2012}

If you haven't heard the scuttle-butt, we are moving...crazy...sad...exciting. I will post more on this soon & where we are headed, but first I thought I'd give a little update on our home since it is on the market and we soon will have a new home to fix up. Well...we hope to at least. 

Here is the front of our little 1960's split-level that we have grown to love. 

 View from the backyard.

...Finally finished the dining room. Here are the deets...
 Window frames are from Country Boy in Norfolk.
 B is from Hobby Lobby - I spray painted it teal.
 Burlap table runner - just stitched along the edges.
 Lampshade from target, rug from tjmaxx.

 Made the chalkboard from a thrift store framed picture with some chalkboard paint...

Window seat pillows: I made the burlap and chevron ones. The others were purchased on etsy and tjmaxx. 

Our master bedroom...
Necklace storage by the mirror - hooks from Hobby Lobby
IKEA bed & baskets & nightstands
 Guest Bedroom...

Mm love our kitchen. It is no longer the big bird kitchen (that I painted two shades too yellow and in semi-gloss paint). We went with a much classier tan - that matches the rest of the house. The stools are red now. too.

A little subway print I made for the kitchen - more on that soon. 
Crate and Barrel glass jars for flour & other sundry items. 

Our darling porch. I have loved this porch. It was one of the things that most drew me to this house in the first place. Virginia is a great place to have some outdoor living space because we sometimes have long spring & summers. For a little refresher on how terrible this place was when we first bought it. We have come a long way.

We got some steals on the porch.
Lights - target
Coffee table - found on the side of the road - painted it white and sanded it down to give it a rustic look
Dining Table - $10 craiglist
Chairs and bench - hand-me-downs from our parents
Chairs for the table - $10 for the set from the DAV thrift store (fav thrift store in town!)
Pillows - End of season Home depot outdoor pillows
Planter - Marshall's - $5

We'v come a long way from the pink prison (or what my mom called the bathroom designed while on drugs). And what can I say about it? I just love white subway tile. 

And our sweet baby boy's room...

thanks for touring our home! If you have any questions on what we did or where we got things, let me know.
