My Mini Home Tour

I'm particpating in the Home Tour Party hosted by Danielle at Transforming Home. Welcome to my home!!! Come inside....
I love color!! Being a military wife we moved so much that there was never time to put paint on the walls. So, I knew with our home and our getting roots that I would have color. I have never been afraid to try different colors on my walls (many of my friends are terrified!). We bought this house before my husbands last deployment. I painted the whole thing myself while he was gone. I got up and down from the ladder to paint up to those 10 foot ceilings. So sore and lots of motrin later. LOL!
This picture is of the dining room as you walk in....My husband did the molding for me in it. Do you see the iron piece on the wall in the back? To make it look bigger, I stenciled all around it.
This is shot from the dining to what is suppose to be a formal living a.k.a. Xbox room. We want to add french doors to that room someday.
This picture seems to have such a glare(sorry). This is what you see at the entry niche. I hope you can the see  leaves I painted on the sides of it. I did those free hand one day. I taught myself to paint, quilt, and craft, while hubby was in the military.
This is our breakfast nook. It's actually bigger than the dining room which is nice. I hope to get new furniture for this room one day....
This is the hall from the entry to the family room. I have a book case here and this is the display and pictures above it.
This is the fireplace. The big picture I got on clearance at Kirland's. Gotta love that!!
This is my kitchen area. We were stationed overseas in Sicily  for 3 years and I have some dishes that are from there displayed. I'll do a post with more pictures of them later. I love the blue that pops out!!
This is another picture of the kitchen. It has a built in desk area and cabinets. Very convenient!!
This last picture is of my bedroom. I'm hoping to get new bedding and redo this room for birthday. I still have so many plans and decorating ideas. I'll be showing more pictures of my home on later post.(You definitely don't want to go in the kids rooms right now, not pretty pics).  I hope you enjoyed your tour!! Thank you again to Danielle at Transforming Home for hosting this wonderful House Tour Party!!
