Step right up and come on in to our 100 year old house!
Don't mind the no soliciting sign on the door.
Most of the construction dust has settled in our house. We've changed every room in our house by ourselves and on a budget...and, now that I have seen some of the beautiful homes in the summer home tour, I might have to get out my paint brush and tool belt and start again!
Our dining room, since we moved in, has been transformed twice...darn pinterest!
Our living room...
Has beautiful built in bookcases.
Perfect for displaying family pictures
and our favorite flea market finds.
The custom shoe rack is my favorite. If you like my closet, you have to check out the before pictures, they are proof ANYONE could have a closet like this.
This isn't the only custom closet in our house, Grace also has a custom closet with her own custom shoe rack.
Grace's room is currently in the transition from going from a little girl room to a big girl room.
Some things will stay, like her Grace quilt, and some will have to be packed up for safe keeping.
The transition to big girl room starts on Thursday so make sure to come back in a few weeks and see what changes we've made.
Let's heat things up and head to the kitchen.
Our kitchen was gutted down to the lathe boards and built back up.
And, though I love our kitchen, especially the green house window we added...
I am looking forward to repainting and adding a chandelier (read: momma isn't going to know what to do with herself when only child goes off to school).
From the kitchen, you can enter my other my favorite space in our 100 year old house...the pantry, though it looked nothing like this when we moved in.
Besides for the hand painted stenciled walls, the addition of the library ladder (including its charming hardware) makes me wish it was socially acceptable to entertain in this space.
Our basement has a few special nooks, where my $3.99 Goodwill chair has place of honor.
I also have a craft nook, nestled in between a treadmill and a weight set (hence the TV above the Ana White desk we built).
Though I do have to share this space, I have tried to make my nook my own. In addition to my LOVE sign, I also have a custom While Wearing Heels sign the talented Holly at Full Circle Creations made me.
Lastly, come on out to onto our back deck. We finally got around to decorating and updating it this summer.
We hung some curtains, added some barn wood foxes and made cushions for the chairs we found on the side of the road.
But the most impressive While Wearing Heels house, is Grace's handmade dollhouse, which includes a custom replica of the nursery we brought her home too.
Thanks for visiting!
