It has been a while since I shared a tour of my home, come to think of it, have I ever really done a house tour? Probably not. Honestly my home is a big work-in-progress. When just about every piece of furniture takes a huge makeover to work, it takes longer than normal to create a beautiful space. All those DIY projects can take up lots of time!

So please excuse my work-in-progress, and I hope you enjoy the room projects I’m working on thus far!

Summer tour - bedroom

My master bedroom has been a long time coming. The previous owners used it as a golf themed office, so transforming it into the perfect master bedroom (tiny as it is) took some work. To keep this makeover’s costs really low, I made my own Diamond Tufted Headboard from the existing headboard, and transformed several hand-me-me downs (such as the bedside tables).

Chic Master Bedroom Makeover

Then to supplement our tiny closet, I built a DIY Wardrobe unit out of two Ikea Rast Dressers. My first Ikea hack! Sometimes necessity is the mother of invention. 😀 And by the way, my hack is in a FB competition, and I’d really love and appreciate your vote here (you only get one sadly).

Summer tour - kiddoes room

My eldest daughter is so happy I’m finally working on her space. She’s looking for that perfect “big girl” space. I’m thrilled since this room is used when we have guests. We’re far from done, but this is a great start to something lovely!

Voilet-bedroom-art-wall

I have very girly girls, so my middle munchkin was very clear that what she wanted was a pretty princess-y pink bedroom. You have to see the before and after of this space…it’s pretty great (and that is coming from a non-pink loving mama).

Summer tour - living room

What can I say, the rest of my living room may as well not even exist right now. I spend nearly all of my time at my “lounge” area. Confession, I like to pretend I work here, but really this is my Pinterest browsing area.

summer tour - office

The area that was SUPPOSE to be my workspace / Pinterest browsing area was taken over by the hubs. He’s a computer gaming kinda guy…I think we’ll need two offices in the next house we move to. What I love most about the space is all the DIY gold accents, including the DIY gold dipped file box, and the DIY magnetic tins.

Summer tour - laundry roomThis room was an icky yellow color before, much akin to a mustard stain…yeah in a LAUNDRY room. Ironic right? Anyway, this is just a peek inside my laundry room, but I’m most proud of the organization of this space. It is one of the most useful spaces!

Summer tour - kitchen

Yep. This might as well be the sum of the kitchen in the eyes of my kids. You understand…for growing kids and husbands, it’s all about eating. There is more to the kitchen, I swear, but my camera died before I could capture it…so you’ll just have to come back. I’m also in the process of organizing it. My favorite cabinet is my baking cabinet…it’s probably the only one that stays organized. Haha!

Eat-in Kitchen

Hope you’ve enjoyed what you’ve seen. There will be a lot more after the summer is over. Being a homeschooling mom, summer break is when the magic happens!

    Oh, so beautiful! I love your style! Can you tell me what paint color you have in your laundry room and also where you bought the light fixture over your table? I would love to see more pics of that organized laundry room!!!

      Thank you very much! Unfortunately my thrifting means I don’t always have a source. The light fixture was from a Habitat for Humanity Restore (lucky thrift find!), and the paint was in the mis-tint section of Walmart. Here are the numbers, you could have them mixed:

      Hahaha, ain’t that the truth! Honestly, I’m pretty sure if it wasn’t summer and the kids weren’t happily building teepees in the backyard (and probably destroying our garden), I wouldn’t be able to lounge quite so easily. 😀 Thank you for the compliment dear!

    Oh Ursula, how divine your home is. I love all these touches you’ve added in your make-overs and honestly, don’t we all need a specialised Pinterest reading nook. It’s definitely on my ‘TO-DO’list now [wink]. Thank you for the tour. I’ll be Pinning and sharing. Hugs ~ Kerryanne

I love your art gallery wall above your headboard and how it ties in all the textile colors in the room! I’m so thrilled to be joining the bHome hive this week and sharing my home tour on Wednesday! :) Pinned!

    I am on the bHome tour bus! I started with Kelly and made my way to you… what a great way to start the day!
    Your home is so charming… I love the way you have maximized space for your master bedroom. The closet looks like an extension of the bedroom with the repetition of theme using the gold framed print and the lovely stacked pillows in the shelves. It not only gives the illusion of more space it connects things. Very clever! Thank you for sharing your home and I hope you pop over to my house on Thursdays tour lineup!!
