My Style

I have recently been diagnosed with decorating indecisiveness and I think I have finally uncovered the reason for my sickness. It is because my style is all over the place! I like traditional architecture, modern furniture, and funky accessories. You may call this look eclectic, but I call it spastic and hard to cure. I have recently fallen in love with some images on Pinterest, some which have been added to my Dream Home board. After looking at these you might start to understand my diagnosis. 

I love the traditional white cabinetry, the vintage but modern wallpaper, and funky pops of pink! 

The old world feel of the wall treatment and exposed ceiling really make the crystal chandelier pop. I love the rustic table with modern, metal chairs. And the yellow flowers melt my heart:)

The zebra rug, acrylic table and high contrasting colors are what modernize this space. The furniture.  cabinetry & moldings bring in the traditional aspects that make this space work!

I am dying over this image. That chandelier is freaking fantastic. I would probably opt to use a a darker wood table, but definitely keep the rustic feeling.

I can't get enough ghost chairs...

I'm really likin' the pink these days! Too bad I am married to a very manly man...he can't so no to pink flowers though:)

What is your style? If you are like me, how do you merge your styles? I need some help!


Dresser Reveal

Good morning!

I picked up this piece from Goodwill. It had great bones, but needed some love and I knew a crisp white would really modernize it. I know most people would go for the antiquing look on a piece like this, but it just really isn't my style and I wanted to give it a modern update. I opted not to rough up the edges or add glaze. Instead, I finally got familiar with my sprayer and sprayed it with an ultra white paint and poly top coat. I think it would be great as a TV stand, but haven't convinced my husband of that one yet:(

I left the original hardware, but am now thinking that some crystal knobs would look fab! 

In case you missed the before...

Tuesday's Tour

I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July weekend! We had fun and spent time with friends, family, and lots of bbq:) 

Today's version of Tuesday's Tour is a little more practical than last. Listed for $294, 950 in Fairway, Kansas, a 3 bedroom 2 bath house...

Long galley kitchen. I really like the mix of white cabinets, the soft blue wall color, black granite, and original hardwoods. 

I, but more importantly, Josh, cannot wait until we have a fireplace in our home. It is a must for our next place:)

I love the clean, vintage feel to this bathroom. 

The windows are fabulous in this house!

I think I need a screened in porch. This one is lovely!

And that is what $295,000 will get ya in Fairway, Kansas. The neighborhoods in this part of town are great. Lots of big trees, great community, and even greater schools. 

I am going to get back to work on a couple furniture refinishing projects. I should have one to show you this afternoon:)
