2013 House Tour: Part 1

Man oh man where has the summer gone? I’m in Sipapu, NM this week running with our last camp of the summer and afterward I’m looking forward to some much needed rest and relaxation!

Meanwhile, it’s time again for the annual house tour and even I am in shock of how much has changed around these parts in just over a year! Because I’m always up for a trip down memory lane, I thought we’d do a little ‘before & after’ with the tour from 2012.

The Front Poarch

2012 House Tour PorchWowza. See what I mean? Let’s see, in the past year we’ve created a seating area on the porch, hung some new bird feeders, created not 1 but 2 pieces of garden art and given that sad looking pineapple a pop of color! Th patio has gotten new planters, a water hose bin and new house numbers (1 of which has gone missing at the moment. . . .).

2012 House Tour Kitchen TableWe updated the bar, completed the kitchen gallery art and built some eat-in seating after we painted the entire kitchen.

Across from the kitchen table, we added a screen door to our pantry and did a little bit of yarn art as well as adding this sweet command center.

2012 House Tour Dining RoomWe colorblocked our walls and picked up this awesome vintage buffet from my grandparents house.

I also tried my hand at hanging un-framed art and it took not 1, not 2 but 3 attempts!
