~I LOVE A PARADE!~Poppies at Play held an event this week featuring four homes per day all week. Since it is spring break, I have totally looked forward each morning to checking out all these wonderful homes! Check out Day One....and from there you can go to each home in order. Soooo much awesome inspiration out there!
Poppies at Play is also having a linky party for all of us "regular people" to show off our homes. While I know that there are many other homes I have seen out there in blogland that are just gorgeous right-off-the-pages-of-a-magazine-type-homes...ours surely is not. My hubby always says I am never satisfied, never happy with how our house looks, always wanting to change things up. And he is right. :o}
BUT.....I am so incredibly thankful, proud and BLESSED with what we have been given through the grace of God! I told him about this home tour and he rolled his eyes....he has not come over to the dark side of blogging yet. :o} I explained that I am very proud of our home, the one he and I have created together, and even though I will never, ever stop wanting to make it better, I want to share it with others. While I know that there are plenty of other homes that will be far more worthy of being shown off, I hope that some of you will find inspiration in our home. I know I cannot wait to visit all the others who come to the party! So here we go........
Our home was built by John Weiland in 1998. We live in a swim/tennis community in the suburbs of Atlanta. We have a corner lot, which gives us a HUGE front yard. I like to think that our home has lots of curb appeal.
~THE MAIN FLOOR~
These black and white paintings in our foyer show all the homes we have loved in our 23 years of marriage!
The Living Room~
This room and the dining room (next photo) were carpeted until our master bath flooded causing damage to the main level hardwoods. So we had hardwoods installed while the damaged floors were being refinished. No rugs in these rooms yet, except for this little rug that will eventually go in the foyer....lots of brown...can't wait for rugs! :o}
The Dining Room~
The Powder Room Bath~
Recently painted this room a gray-blue color...jury is still out on that....
The kitchen and family room are really one big room. And the rug in here was ruined with the water damage, so I am also patiently waiting for a rug here too! Our built-ins and fireplace have changed drastically from what they originally looked like. You can read more about that here.
~THE SECOND FLOOR~
Girl #1's Room and Bath~
Just recently made over....a blog post on that coming soon.
Girl #2's Room and Bath~
Blog post on her room, which was made over last October, also coming soon.
Hubby works from home (when he is not traveling) so this space is not for show....it is a real working office!
The Master Bed and Bath~
Feeling the itch to update our bedroom...gathering ideas in blogland right now. :o}
Our master bath got a major overhaul last October due to an overflowing toilet....you can see/read more about that here.
We also have a guest room and our laundry room on this level....two rooms that are NOT ready for photos...both rooms end up being a dumping ground for laundry, out-of-season clothes, and various other junk...I mean stuff! :o}
The Theater Room~
The Game Table/Room~
**Are you sensing a theme in our basement?** If not....here is another hint....GO DAWGS! :o}
The Craft Room~
This room is all mine and I LURVE her! We revamped this room in January. You can read more about it here.
I hope you enjoyed looking around our home! Y'all come back now! :o}
Blessings to All~
