The living room is so cozy and dramatic. They used a chocolate brown paint for the walls and all the trim is white. Love all of the pictures going up the stairs.
The "ceiling tiles" on the walls are actually freebie plastic ones you can get as samples. They look like the real thing!
The coffee table is an old cupboard, laid on it's back, and used as a trunk. It's old chippy white and green paint and looks adorable.
Ashley used an old ironing board as a sofa table and it works like a charm. She has her cosmotology license, so Debbie gave her the old sign.
The "chalkboard" is painted on the kitchen wall and framed with an old white frame. Can you tell they are excited about the birth of Lucy???
This one didn't come out very well, but her kitchen curtains are made from old feed sacks. Abbey's wheat grass is growing like crazy on the sill.
The blacksmith sign was a wedding present made by Debbie's husband, Kenny. Ashley showed Saddlebred horses for years and taught riding lessons as an adult. The old tool tote is hung on the wall and used to store towels and kitchen goodies in.
Kitchen table is soon to be replaced with an island - she can't wait. She has an old black table picked out at the shop to be made into the island - it even has a bite out of it from a horse!
Her new lights (made by The Olde Primitive House) around her kitchen window. The horse is an antique iron Saddlebred.
The master bedroom is painted gray with black and burgandy accents. I just love this wall! All black and whites from their wedding.
All burgandy bedding. The quilt at the foot of the bed was made by my cousin, Ruth Ann, and was a wedding gift. (Lucky couple!)
The mirror and drawers were given to them by a friend and were old dark pine. Ashley painted them and Tony hung it on the wall. Looks so darn cute now!
There you have part one! We didn't get the dining room, other bath, Abbey's room, the nursery or the craft room this time, but they will be coming soon. I'm so proud of my daughter. She has taken lots of hand-me-downs and turned them into such great things. She definately has the touch. She isn't quite as prim as her mother, but I love that she uses her imagination. Wait until you see her little craft room, she did the whole thing for about $25.00!!! Hope you enjoyed this little tour and we will be having more home tours soon.
Today was a fabulous Michigan spring day - finally! The sun was shining bright, I had the door to the shop open, and everyone seemed to be in such a good mood. It's supposed to be even nicer tomorrow!
Time to change our front window at the shop tomorrow. Ready for some summer colors!
In case any of you gals live close, Holly is going to have "Ladies Night Out" on May 8th from 5 to 9 p.m. The whole town participates. Each shop has specials, treats, door prizes, etc. The town is decked out in pink lights and pink balloons. We'd love to have you come if you can.
I covered cushions for the rocking chair in Ashley's nursery tonight and she made dinner - what a great trade! Time to get my laundry put away and back to reality. Have a great evening and we'll talk again tomorrow...
