The Rest of the Tour

11.08.2010

If you missed part one of this tour click HERE. Now we will move on with some shots of my sister's family room, kitchen and dining room which have all had changes made since the last time I shared her home.

Let's start in the room they spend the most time in.

The Family Room



Love this new blue table.


This clock was her birthday present to herself.











She bought this light in the hardware department at Walmart for a few bucks and added it over this armoire. Love the industrial look mixed in.




I love her vignette on her coffee table.


Great display on the mantel.


Just a couple of dining room shots. 

She painted the gold finished mirror white.




And last up is the kitchen.
She painted this side of the cabinets red and removed the doors. Love it.

She found this wonderful rusty, chippy basket at a consignment store.


Love this idea for keeping soaps, washcloths and lotion close at hand.





Son's leggos are on the table. Just part of everyday life.















I hope you enjoyed the tour. I am sure it will change again soon. Of course the holidays are coming and I can share her holiday decor with you.

Linking to Tabletop Tuesdays at A Stroll thru Life.


Hope everyone has a great week and y'all come back now,

KIM

I just got home from being out of town all weekend and have not been good about visiting your blogs. I will be better soon, I promise.

  1. Please tell your sister her home is fabulous! I love all of her decor ... the gold turned white mirror is beautiful, and all of her vignettes are so, so pretty! Oh, and love how she painted her cabs red ... the white pieces pop so nicely against it! Thanks for sharing, *Becca*

  3. Oh man it just keeps getting better and better! I'm so glad you are sharing these photos and I cracked up seeing the Legos on the table. Looks like my world! :-) You guys must just have so much fun shopping together and bouncing decorating ideas off of each other. Isn't it great to have a sister? :-)

  4. Love that blue table and that blue lamp and the clip light. I've been thinking about using those lights as spot lights too but was afraid they'd be too casual for my home but it looks great in her home. So I think I'll try it. Thanks for the inspiration.

  8. Kim, her house is just beautiful!! I noticed the dark paint on the french doors and was curious about her window trim. Is it white?? I really want to paint my french doors black, but my windows have white trim. Love the legos of course!

  45. Hi Kim, Thanks for visiting. Like you my plans were to decorate after Thanksgiving for Christmas, but a girl has to do what she has to do. I can't get enough of looking at that clock in your sisiter's house and that blue lamp.
    So much character in both pieces.

  51. Thanks for sharing the house tour! Her home is so pretty and there are so many great ideas. I really need to find a wire basket like that for above my fridge too. Your photos are lovely and I love all the vignettes. Do you have an wide view of the family room? I would love to see how that large armoire/hutch relates to the sofa area as I'm considering doing one for our livingroom.
