Summer Home Tour

The Shabby Grace Summer Home Tour is HERE.

The other night the hubs asked, “So, when are all your blogging friends coming over to tour the house?”  Oh.Em.Gee Hubs.  

So, yes! Some blogging friends and I are excited to share our homes with you.  Please, click around on the image above.  Enjoy them ALL!

HT Outside 1


We purchased our home in February 2010.  We have slowly transformed it into our cozy abode.

HT Outside 2

We repainted the exterior and ripped out all the prior landscaping.  On this corner there was a LARGE pine tree that covered most of the house.  Believe it or not, ALL these rocks were under the tree.  I visualized this rock wall and I can’t be more pleased with the results.  To me, rock walls need ALL sizes of stones.  Isn’t she lovely?

HT Outside 3

Last summer we added this flower bed in front of the garage.  Prior it was over sized burning bushes.  We love our new Limelight Hydrangea Tree.  It’s really coming in well this year!

Please, come on in.  We love guest!  This is the entryway when using the front door.  I will be showing you SOME of the rooms in our home.  Make sure to show Callie some attention!

You can leave your coat and shoes at the door.  Please use my lovely DIY coat rack that I adore.  Details HERE.

The first floor includes a large office (currently a playroom), the master suite, master bathroom, living room, formal dining, kitchen, mudroom and a half bath.

Coming straight in you enter the living room.  The sofa table behind the sofa is made from an old cabinet door and stair spindles.  This room was carpeted when we purchased the home.  We carried the maple hardwoods into this room.

This end table was painted with Milk Paint.  Details HERE.  (I still am searching for hardware that fits.  Eeekk)

Now into the newly finished kitchen.  I’m in love with the BRIGHT new kitchen.  Details HERE.  Also, my DIY Barn-wood shelf is hanging between the curtains and cabinet.  Details HERE.

Off the kitchen there’s a great deck!  It flows nicely from the kitchen and dining area.

HT Stairs Up

We will now head up stairs.  These too were carpeted and now finished with maple treads and new spindles.  Upstairs you will find three bedrooms and a full bath.  This whole second level has been completely refinished.

Our spare room.  The chippy nightstand is one of my favorite pieces in the home.

Here is Miss Shabby Grace’s room.  (Eva)  Before I knew we were having a girl I had this room mapped out in my head.  So soft, elegant, feminine and will transition easily as she gets older.  Which, is happening all too quickly!

HT Stairs Down

Let’s make our way back down stairs.  We will make a left and pass through the formal dining and mudroom, making our way into the half bath.
