A Friend's House

I went over to see my best friend from high school the other day and took some pictures of her cute house. This is only a small portion of the fall decorations she has out.










She just recently bought this antique table and chairs for her kitchen. She painted it this pretty green (she says she doesn't like it but I think it looks good) and reupholstered the chair seats. Her mom made the gorgeous coordinating window valance.




This is her upstairs guest bedroom which they did themselves. She has a very smart and handy husband. He could probably build a whole house if he wanted to. It took a few years to complete, but it was worth the wait. It is beautiful! My friend painted and distressed her grandmother's antique furniture and it turned out great. Of course, I love the toile fabric she used on the window, the bed, and in the bathroom. The room is so cottagey and I always want to go up and see it whenever I go to her house.





I hope you enjoyed the mini-tour. I'll have to go back again and take pictures of the other rooms in her house. Enjoy the rest of your day!

Hi Angie...
Me again! :o)
I really adore the window treatments in your friend's home and was wondering if she sewed them herself. If she had, do you know if she used a particular pattern? Also, I just noticed her lamp. I have the same one (I bought for $4.00-isn't that insane?!) and will be painting the base today, white like hers. I wondered what it would look like! Perfect!!
Have a great day.
Sincerely ~ Tricia
