Dining room update

Since my bed is still unmade, I'll post my dining room pictures today. I bought the two black pieces in my dinng room before I decided to do a white and linen house. Now I was perplexed with what to do with the dark dinng room colors. No way was my generous husband going to let me buy a new buffet and hutch when I had just purchased these less than a year ago. So I tried to incorporate the dark with white dishes in the hutch and lighter chair back slipcovers. I also had to deal with a BIG window that looked out to a brick wall. We live in a garden home and our neighbor's wall is about 3 feet from my window. Cozy. Since I crave light, covering up the window wasn't an option. I disguised it the best I could while still keeping it open.

My Bathroom re-do and Master Bedroom

Happy Father's Day to my wonderful Dad and to my sweet husband. I hope you all got to spend the day with your father...whether through pictures, memories or best of all - real life. I live over 800 miles away from my Dad and wish I could have been at my brother's where I'm sure he grilled out and the family got together. My heart was there in spirit! Here are some promised updates of my master bath. We took the big long mirror off over the sink and used old tin frames that we had a mirror cut to fit. We replaced the dated faucets. My husband put beadboard up around the tub which reads as yellow in the picture, but is really an antique white in person. Most everything else is repurposed from flea markets.

While you were sleeping... what happened while my blog was in a coma.

I loved the movie "While you were sleeping." My blog has been sleeping for nearly a year now. Sometimes a blogger just get's burned out or bites off more than she can chew. Or lazy. But I have been busy doing something in the last year. I don't know where to start. So I decided to start with my house. Like most of you, I'm constantly editing and adding. I don't know what it looked like last August but I'll give you a tour now. This will take a couple of posts. I'll start with the main rooms today.
I guess I'm an industrial beach style sort of girl these days. In my next post, we'll visit the bedrooms. Hopefully, it won't take me another year to get the beds made!
