Welcome readers to my second Tours of Home installment! I am so excited about today's house tour. It is of a fellow Homeschoolers house here in my fine state of North Carolina. She has such a talent for nesting her home for maximum coziness that I admire. Please welcome Sherry from ThriftMyHouse.
Her front door area is open & inviting as you enter. You see a lot of natural light dancing on the floor. Love it. I love her white door by the way it used to be stained. When she painted it white it made it look so fresh and made the impact of a bigger looking room I think!
Here is her sweet living room. I read her post recently on her Jute rug obsession and it is so cute. She shares all her new jute rugs in the house. My favorite one is in fact this one below in her living room. She really does think outside the box and makes it HERS. I would of never thought of layering a rug on top of a rug!
I just love this gallery wall. All the varieties of frames is delightful with reflections of their home life looking back at them daily!
Sherry used to have these curtains in her dinning room. But she wanted to use them in her bathroom area. So she cut the long curtains to fit her needs and made these fabulous no sew curtains! They work great in that space don't ya say?!
She really does Thrift her house. She even made this amazing sign for a Mothers Day gift from old baseboard that was laying around in her attic! Wow. Not a dime spent yet it simply is amazing and something you'd see for at least 20-30 dollars at a home store.
Welcome to Sherry's family laundry room where they tend so tidy to the needs of the family. And what better place to do it than this room! I love her fascination of numbers and how she has used them over the years from ornaments in her holiday flare to laundry room care! ( I made a little rhyme there)
She took an old armoire another part of her house and painted it white to place in her kids bed room. I think it looks so pretty & up to date with that cute little banner above it! I love the maps & countries pictures to. Just so amazing how it all ties together. Color simply pops and glows in all it's splendor more next to white!
Look at this dinning room wall. Packed with tons of sweet southern goodness I love the flow of it all.
In Sherry's Kitchen I love the way she took off only the cabinet around the sink's doors. Very nice way to display things. And look at her checkered flooring she actually replaced her floor for free! Look at her facet that is perfect with this floor. I think that floor goes well with her black & white & gray theme. It is beautiful! I really love the cabinets are not all white and she left the stain. It looks kinda vintage in there!
You have got to go by her site to see the before picture of her bed room. The transformation is amazing. I love this inviting room. It is such a peaceful looking relaxing place. Now look below at where she moved this white bench seat to!
Now instead of the bench seat she has this little bench at the foot of her bed she painted right up so cute after finding this sweet little bench for a $1.50!
Sherry had a hallway she wanted to redo that had nothing really going on in it. She really livened it up and tied it like a bow to match the rest of the house!
Here is a peek into her back yard garden. I love the Farmers Market sign she made with the mirror how cute. And the water hose wreath is darling. I love the pallet shelf too and it has inspired me to do some of my own!
Sherry thank you so much for allowing us a peek at your lovely home. It is so inviting & warm. I admire your uses of blacks & white & grays and really love the flow! You have tied the whole house in nicely together. I also admire the times you took things right from your own house and re-used them in a new way you really do thrift your own house and it has won my heart. I am forever a fan.
