Home Tour

I'm attending a Home Tour Party hosted by Transforming Home

Welcome to Home-EE's Home Tour!

Front Room
First room you enter when you come through the front door. Accessorized with my lab, Lucy and her kennel. I'm on the hunt for the perfect rug to go in this room as well as a nice storage ottoman.

Dining Room
Faux painted the walls with a rag on technique. I've lived with it for a few years,and I'm thinking the walls need a different paint color.

Family Room
Decorated with many family photos! Who doesn't love a great photo wall?

I love the layout of the kitchen but one day home to extend out my island for extra seating, install quartz countertops, and put in a backsplash. One day....

Downstairs/Main Bathroom
This bathroom got a big makeover with painted walls, new mirror (purchased on Craigslist for $30), new lighting fixture and tile. Next is to replace the faucet with a chrome 2 handle faucet which I've purchased but haven't installed yet.

Guest Bedroom
This room is furnished by Craigslist. The headboard was a DIY project. The end tables (which were painted cream) and lamps were purchased as a set for $40.

Jack and Jill Bathroom
The glued on wall mirror was ripped out and replaced with the 2 framed mirrors and 2 new lighting fixtures with the help of free labor from good ol' Dad. Next up is to replace the faucets and tile over the vinyl flooring.

My Home Office
This room doubles as a guest bedroom and is another Craigslist furnished room. Futon was $50 and desk was $25. The large wall art over the futon was inspired from this Myles of Style episode.

Master Bedroom and Bathroom
I love the layout of our bedroom and bathroom. I framed the mirrors in the bathroom with trim board and installed 2 new light fixtures. I'm in the process of getting estimates to have tile installed on the floors and replace the tile in the shower and tub, which is very builder beige blah! I would love to tile the fireplace as well.
As for the bedroom, I'm still looking for the perfect art piece(s) to place over the bed and maybe new nightstands.
