Without further ado, or rambling from me, here's a peek into our home and the beautiful work my husband did on our walls.
|Here's the view of the wainscoting as you enter our home. A couple of large frames are to be hung over the mantle shelf, which was made by my grandfather. He also made our TV console, based on a design by Arne Vodder.|
|View from the dining room.|
|we carried the wainscoting down our little hallway and around into the kitchen.|
|My new sewing cart! Sharing a desk wasn't working out too well, so now I just grab my machine and work at our dining table. Nice to have a place close by to put my things away. Works out great!|
|Wainscoting underneath the kitchen bar.|
|New organization from IKEA. Aprons easy to reach and handy. Which means they actually get used, which means less grease stains on my clothes, which means less work for me. Wish I had done this sooner!|
|Our colorful pantry door, a Pinterest idea.|
|More IKEA organization in the kitchen. Hanging utensils=clear counter tops and more workspace.|
|Our living room/family room complete with handmade furniture and a hand-me-down sofa, love it! The side table made by my grandfather also inspired by Vodder, the storage bench another wonderful gift made by him, the pillows made by me, Josh & Kate prints hanging on the wall, and the lovely sun print by Lab Partners. We also have this one that needs to be framed and hung.|
|Dining room with my sewing cart and another bench made by my grandfather, yes he is awesome. The seat lifts up and there's lots of storage underneath for the kids coloring/craft supplies and also table linens.|
|Our sweet ones. Photos taken by my sister-in-law. If you're in the Indy area give her a shout!|
|The awesome Darth Vader spatula, worthy of a photo spot on the blog. The same before mentioned sister-in-law got this for her brother for Christmas. Perfect since he's the pancake maker in the house :). Williams Sonoma doesn't carry them anymore, but if you simply must have one you can purchase it on Ebay in the next 14 days and 21 hours.|
|Here's a close up of my husband's beautiful work. The total height was three feet I believe. The baseboard was about 5.5" tall and we got all of our supplies from Lowe's—Just in case you are swooning over how fabulous this looks and need to talk your husband into protecting the corners in your own house ;).|
If you are still reading, thanks for sticking around for such a long post! It's our smallest sweet one's birthday today! She's two! after celebrating her I'll be posting the rest of the Christmas goodies I made and more detail on the gifts I posted earlier.
Have a lovely rest of your week!
