Home tour



                     Yay for Poppies at play   

Check out all the lovely homes on the Parade of Homes tour.
This became our home as of May 2010




                 We made a lot of changes in the
                  Three years we have lived here.








                               our message on the front door


These wood art wood is from the Book East of Eden.  
It is the hebrew word Tinshel.



This room was enclosed a year or so after we moved in.
It was open and we had nothing to do with the room.
  I will not just have a sitting room that is for looks 
but we enclosed the room and it has been an
 office, my mother- in law's room and a playroom.

New changes to the living room was this
 photo gallery wall and the stair well.

We added a chair rail and painted
 a dark brown on the lower part 
of the wall. Then added shadow 
boxes.

     The half bath


One of our first home projects was adding a lower crown molding for this bathroom that makes you feel like you have fallen down a well.  It is tight and talllll.




 

This really shortened the room and it looks a lot
 better.  We also built a frame to go around the
 mirror with large door trim.

The Kitchen had 2 makeovers in 2 years.
We made a cheap diy makeover for $4000




The first makeover






This is when we moved in.  












Then our diy kitchen

and then a house fire in the garage and
 the Kitchen was redone again.



                                 
   










Master Bedroom
When we moved in it was like this







Changes to master 


























                                       Master bathroom

The first year it was the way it bad.  Pale green and ugly.



The decor is UK.  The pictures are from places in England

I have vases full of sand from beaches in Ireland, Scotland, England, Greece and Wales

 I put pictures of us in Phone Booths over our towel hooks







I made a subway art of all the places we went to in England.



  I love my art to be personal to just us.


See us make the tub look built in with a  beadboard front.




 Mack's room

Mack's first room- still had the yellow
 walls from when we moved it.



Added wall trim to Mack's room









                                       Gray's baby room



                                     Gray's big girl room



Gray's new room 








We added crown molding and a small picture
 frame molding a few inches down from 
the crown and painted the space in between white.  
The added a very high chair molding around the room.





The new window ledge and wainscoting.







Kelly's room

The Garage we changed into two offices
 and art/place area for the kids


 We built a wall dividing the space in two.

Our home made safety gate.
We call it the Kelly gate.

We picked a pattern to try using 4ft long by 1.5 inch wide wood. It is in the molding area at Home Depot. We cut the wood into 7, 10, and 13 inch pieces.
Here is the design we wanted. So we could make adjustment we stared in the center of the wall and us one headless nail to nail in each piece of wood. It was easy to pull off and try again if we were off measuring wise.


In this picture you can see how it is a square box of 10wide 13 tall with 7 inch pieces on all sides.
Then we added just a flat 3.5 wide 4 ft long pieces of wood also in the molding department. After everything is in place then take a nail gun and nail all the wood to the wall.
Then really months later we got around to painting it. One coat of primer and 3 coats of white paint. Then we realized that w…
