Christmas Tour Part 4, Dining Room

Getting ready for Christmas dinner this year with a smaller group than usual. The table is set for six instead of the normal ten and the kids will be at the BIG table this year since they'll fit!

Christmas Tour Part 2, The Bar

When we moved in to this house, we had this funky little room off of the kitchen that we didn't really know how to use. I found this cool bar at the Pottery Barn outlet so the decision was easy. It's so fun and convenient to have this especially around the holidays for parties!

New Orleans Inspired Halloween Wreath

If you've been on my Pinterest page lately, you'll notice that I have been inspired by the skeleton wreaths that I've been seeing lately.  I had to make one.

New Study

Texas inspired home office, cowhide rug, longhorn skull, rustic study ideas

This is where I work/play. Rarely, Bill uses the other side of the desk but more frequently I'm joined by Spencer under the desk.

Breakfast Room Redo

Farmhouse style table and bench
Breakfast Room After

I decided that when I got my notice to renew my domain name that I needed to go ahead and start revealing some rooms on the blog even if they aren't finished yet because I realized that I am NEVER really done with any room anyway. We have done a lot in the house but I can't seem to finish anything because I get too distracted. I go from one room to the next as the mood hits me. Kind of like this blog I guess.  As we would say in my family, "Squirrel."

Master Bedroom Redo

Master Bedroom Before & After

You had me at wood floors and shutters! The never-go-wrong, timeless combination that never goes out of style. It's kind of a no-brainer, really. How can I take credit for this transformation? It's like adding shiplap or subway tiles to any room. Instant beauty. They are both budget breakers but, then again, most good things are. Proving once again that the saying is true... "You get what you pay for."

5th Grade Graduation Bulletin Board

It occurred to me that I forgot to post this last year. With the end of the year approaching, I thought this might give some bulletin board inspiration for those teachers or volunteers that might want to do something like this.
