Welcome to my home.  I am proud of everything so far.  Though I am not done of course.  I am planning some
art for the walls in the living room, and painting a few more things, then I will be a bit more happy with it as a
whole.  But so far so good.  Ohh, and this is the first time I have really hung up anything on the walls for display!

This is right inside the front door.  The name on the board says Fraley but the L is yellow as well as the back
ground and does not show up well in this picture.  The shelf is also in the entry way.  I wish I could get him to
always put his boots under it! lol
 

Straight ahead from the front door is the girls room.  I found that orange curtain digging through my fabric and
decided it would be perfect in their door way.  And by girls, I mean dogs.  It was meant to be for storage, but
it is the perfect size for my girlies to have a safe place to stay when we are out of the house.

And yes, they have custom art work! <3  They love it!


Overall view of the living room, and in the right corner that is obstructed by the door that is always left open to
the girls room.  That is Jettas favorite chair I think.
 

Gracies favorite spot when the sun is not beating down in the living room window, and my awesome $5 GW chair!


Computer area (where T is figuring out our Xmas road trip so he can turn in his forms for leave.  They want to
know exactly where we will be stopping along the way, and everything.  it took him a while) And the big chair
and girls bed where they sun.
 

My free rocking chair and start of my tray collection.  I love that chair but I hardly ever use it.


Over all view of the kitchen.  And all the chairs I have redone up to date.  I have 1 more that will be at the table.
It is partially sanded and waiting patiently for me to finish and paint.  It will be bright yellow.  I am thinking about
getting/making black seat cushions for all of them.  The green chair is usable but obviously not finished.
 
It's washed out a bit, but it is bright bright red
 

Wooden butterfly I painted that hangs from the chandelier and more of my tray collection.  Also the shelf that displays
some of my cool stuff.
 

My free (saved from the trash) microwave table that I was so happy my hubby picked up for me.  And on our anniversary no less! <3
And my vintage TV trays I got at GW for less than $10!!  I was so excited!


This stuff is pretty explanatory, I will save you from the view of dirty dishes, lol.  
   

 

This guy I got at the GW for $2 lives near the window in front of the sink.


Fridge... excuse the black dot in the center.  I didn't realize till I was re-sizing the photos that the name and address of my SS recipient
on another board was out in the open for everyone to see!
 

The hallway with the awesomeness of glow in the dark stars. DH actually used these exact stars to propose!


Bathroom with my wonderful shower curtain and custom art work.  I also LOVE my rugs!
 



Craft room.  My table hardly eve stays so clean! lol
 

 

 

 
Scrapbook paper and more trays I need to attach hooks to so I can hang.  And I bought 5 more (xmas ones) yesterday for a total of $2!!


And my bed room.  Not a lot going on in there, we just recently decided on a color scheme.  I'm hoping to get something up on the
wall in the next week or so.  And I can't wait to sand/paint our side tables.  Mine esp needs it.  It is another GW find.  Poor thing was
sitting in the corner covered in cup rings and dust.  It is loved now though.
 

 


That's it for now!  I'll make sure to post pics of the 4th kitchen chair once I have finished it.  I also want to do something with the small
table next to the computer desk.  I have had it for over 2yrs now I think and that thing needs a good coating of paint or something!

Lovely work, very nice to see those chairs in context. You have a very welcoming and eclectic home?

Thank you.  I know all the color and mis-matched stuff is not for everyone.  But I really like it, obviously.

I love peeking into other people's homes!  Thanks for sharing...it truly shows off your artistic and crafty side...love that you have such personal touches in your home, with lots of color!

I could spend hours looking at all your stuff and hearing the stories...your tray collection is a favorite, and your picture frames!!

Did you decorate those yourself?

Thank you so much!


I like peeking too!  And since their are lots of people who like to do that too, I don't mind sharing!
I love having an actual color pallet to work with.  This is actually the first time I have decorated
and had some sort of scheme going.  Themes aren't really my thing because my favorites change
so much.  The way I see it now.  When (and I'm sure it will happen) I get tired of these colors, I
can easily paint everything I have.  Of course except the soft furniture.  But even then I could do
a slip cover if I really wanted to.

I just recently started indulging my tray fetish.  I come across them all the time at our 2 GWs. <3
I have a double of the one that says 'Friends Are The Flowers In The Garden Of Life' I plan on painting
something on that one.

Some of the frames I painted with acrylics, others I just spray painted to go with the colors I wanted
in my decor.

These you can tell which ones I sprayed.  The 3 in the center shelf I cut scrapbook paper and glued down.
I actually have a whole drawer full of these frames I did with the intention to sell that I haven't pushed yet.


Here I'm sure you can tell which ones I painted.  The others I have not touched... yet.


Oh!  And I forgot to add this picture to the OP.

Growing up in the military, I had my share of white walls!  Yeah--I like to paint in bright colors as well! Cheesy

I have some cheap frames that you gave me a great idea to re-do to use for displaying some of the awesome ATC's and inchies I have received in swaps...

also, loved your separate post on your chairs!  I am not brave enough to paint my oak chairs yet...but seeing your red one is giving me courage!!  I need red chairs in my life... Cheesy

Everyone needs red chairs in their lives!  I hope to see yours soon!
People always say things to me like you just did.  "I'm afraid to paint with that color.'
Well, the way I see it is like this.  If you paint and it is just too bold or not right, you
can always paint it again.

I love all the bright happy colors. I have a few trays that are silver and just love them. I'll have to go check out our new GW.  Smiley

I have a bunch of silver ones too, but not one has a hook on them to be hung up.

I use those 3m hook things you can attach to the back--they look like a can tab sort of and you can easily take it off if you need to without hurting the trays...

like these:
