Our house...

Is a very very very fine house! Here is the home tour for Audra as promised! I have more pics from my other camera that I will add soon! We have a split floor plan with 3 bedrooms and two baths. I hope this "tour" is as unconfusing as possible! I am by no means a decorator, so if you have any tips, please feel free to leave some comments! I love/need all the help I can get! Part One: Kate's room/guest room When you walk in the front door, you are in the dinig room (yes, I meant to misspell dining room; my dad did that on a FINAL project in college and we have spelled it that way since)
Don't mind the tote of law school books (crap) on the floor!
With the guest bedroom to the immediate left.Going through the French doors, the desk/office area is to the right, and the bed is straight ahead.
The open door is to the left of the desk. The closed door is a closet where I store my arts and crafts, my wedding veil, and other odds and ends of goodies. The bedroom suite is mine from I was little, and my mom's, and her mom's, and her mom's! Kate will get it one day too!
This is the ceiling. One of the reasons we fell in love with this house was because the ceilings are awesome!
Going out the door of the guest room, Kate's bathroom is on the immediate left and her room is straight ahead.It's funny how everything has come together in our house. Her shower curtain is from my dorm room curtains from my freshman year in college! Megan used them after me, and I just love them!
Both of these frames were handmade by some my talented friends.
Hallway between the bathroom and Kate's room.When you first walk in Kate's room, the changing table is straight ahead, her crib is in the far left corner, and the closet is on the same wall as the door (on the left also).
Luke refinished the changing table and dresser. It belonged to my dad's grandmother, and it was sitting in my parent's garage, and they were trying to find a new home for it when we were looking for baby furniture. It was painted brown and had big, chunky knobs. Luke did an amazing job with it!
We swiped the bedside table from Uncle Blake's room. he still hasn't noticed!
I made her this bow holder from the "K" and ribbon from her diaper cake. I also made almost all her bows from ribbon from gifts for her! The two plates on the wall are from baby showers, and Luke made the shelves. Since I have taken these pictures, I added hooks on the bottom of each shelf and have dresses hanging from them. Part Two: The den This view is from the hallway between Kate's room and the guest room.It is looking into the den and kitchen area with the dining room on the right. Kitchen
Leaving kitchen looking into laundry room. Garage door is on the right, that closed door goes to the attic (and one day play room+bath), and our room is to the left.Laundry room. Yes, I am aware our washer and dryer do not match, nor will they ever. They have discountinued the color. Note to self:Never buy a weirdo color if you can't buy the whole set. Mama always taught me that with clothes; now I know it carries over to appliances as well.
Part three: Our room
This is the room in our house that needs the most work. Because it does not look like a bedroom suite is in our near future, I am hoping to find a lovely old door to hang behind our bed.
For this side of the room, I want an armoire that has been painted Tiffany's blue and distressed...like this one.
Did I mention I loved our ceilings?Our bathroom! Closet to immediate right, commode room to left.
From closet looking out.
Potty time!

So that is most of the house! I have a few more pics of the living room that I will try to get up tomorrow! Audra, I would LOVE for you and Drew to come see us in real life!!

Home is the place where it feels right to walk around without shoes.

Well it's about time. How long have you lived here again? It's not like you have things to do, a baby to take care of, a job to keep, and a husband to feed. Shiesh, woman. ;)

I'm jealous of your beautiful, immaculate ceilings. And I envy you for having 8 seats in your kitchen. I'm storing that away for my next house. Your wood floors....they will be in my next house.

Thanks for the tour. We'll be by for a real life tour soon.

you re-arranged the living room! Looks fabulous. You probably did it ages ago, which only means one thing - I NEED TO COME VISIT.

Does Kate miss me? You don't have to answer that. I am sure she does.

Love you! Glad you stalked our KD room this weekend.

Did you move the couch? It looks good. I love the house. Kate's room is my favorite.

your home is darling! I love Kate's room but I also love the colors in your room.

I can't believe Kate is almost 6 months old!

I liked seeing your house in person better, but it looks great in the pictures too! By the way... if you want that distressed furniture for you bedroom, you could mention it to Kelsey. She is always finding great stuff at yard sales/thrift stores/etc. and refinishing them. She has done a lot of stuff in my house, and it all looks awesome. I told her she should forget nursing and start a business. Haha.

You are a great tour guide! I need to come back over and see Kate's room. Im trying to figure out how to arrange everything in Noah's room so it is easy access to everything.

So funny that we have the same master bedding and the same problem, no head board! But at least our monogrammed pillows make a nice decorative touch!

Love it all!
