A House Tour

So I was reading Danielle's post @ Transforming Home a few days back where she talks about her experience at Rate My Space. She says it's a tough crowd and loves the crowd here on blogland much better. She has since opened up her home for tour on her blog and has invited all of us to join her.
Now, if you caught my title "A house tour" it was really a play on words. Yes, I have a house, but it doesn't quite seem like a home yet. Not worthy of the words "A home tour". Moving last year into this house has been a challenge for my creativy and decorating desires. We loved the house when we moved in, it was a show home afterall. It is very tuscan, which I do love. The faux painting, the high ceiling, the windows. How cool? Well, it is....but it's challenging when it seems like it's one gigantic room. Take a look at my house and you'll see what I mean. (sorry for the is sunny here today and sorry about the clutter, i'm so un-inspired I can't even clean!)

Visit my page again...I just may have completed a project! If I can get inspired that is!
Any comments and suggestions would be appreciated!
Here is a look at my foyer area: A huge massive wall on the right that connect to the other massive wall in the living room.
This door leads to our office. The open stair case leads down stairs.
This is the office. I don't like the color of the walls, the fact that the walls are not squared meaning the walls are shapped like the ceiling, I don't like the blinds, I don't like the color of the faux finish, I don't like the niches. I don't like the carpet. Hmmm....sounds like a project!
This is a look from the foyer area looking down the hall to the master bath with the powder room door to the right. The open stairs to go downstairs. Another niche and a curved ceiling. Both faux painted!
In the hall by the powder room looking back to the gigantic wall with living room on the right. The curved doorway leads to another bath and 2 bedrooms to each side.
Bad picture looking into living room and dining area.
The living room with its gigantic fireplace
I'm standing near the powder room looking through the kitchen into the dining area. I hate the shape of these ceilings. The walls are faux painted and so is the ceiling.
This is in the hall by the powder room near the back entry
This is the powder room. Again, faux painted. But's it is my favorite in the house!
The master beadroom in progress. Another tray ceiling! Faux painted.
The curtains to be sewn and hung! The rods are up though!
Seriously looking for wood furniture pieces on craigs list as this is my night stand!
A look into the master bath. More curved ceilings!
Well, there it is....can you tell I've got work to do!
Thanks Danielle for making me put it all out there!!!

LLLLLAAAAA!!!! found for a song!

Yes, that's me singing!! Don't judge know you want to break out in a song too when you find a super duper find...for super duper cheap!!!

Well, this mama in all it Gi-normasness, is 2 ft wide and 5 ft long...and priced in at $24.99 UNLESS you hit the 'color of the day' baby!!! $12.00 LLLLAAAAA! Look at the frame!

Isn't it awesome? You know me, it's not staying like plans are to paint the picture out and then paint the words Bon Appetit on it! And hang it in the kitchen (just like they show in Pottery Barn or Ballard Designs). I'll be sure to post when it's done! (finally an indoor paint project).

The other super duper find is this:
Love the color and print of this comforter set. The price was probably a bit higher than I would normally pay ($14), but it comes w/all the extras (like a bed skirt) and when you're dealing with this....

You know that you can't get a new non-matching skirt or fabric for this! It matches my daughters room perfectly.

Anyway, those are my to sing some more!!

Would love your comments and follows!!!
