Modern and Fresh Fall Home Tour

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

I am so excited that Kristen and Lindsay have asked me to be a part of their blog series this month! The tours and projects have been so great and it's always fun peeking into bloggers homes, right? Yesterday, Ally shared her beautiful Dining room with us:

Just like the rest of you guys, when somebody says 'which room should we put a little fall decor into', the first thing that comes to mind is the potty, of course.   

I know, ridiculous...BUT, this room just got a little do over -- it's now orange and green and black {hello, Halloween, anybody?} and I figured no one else in this stylish group would be putting the potty out there.... so, here we are. 

This is a crazy room full of a long wall, angled ceilings, and a huge skylight. I explain all of this because it made picture taking super hard. play along.

The shower curtain was made out of $5/yd cotton duck cloth from Wal-Mart {I love this stuff and use it all the time} It's 60" wide so there was no need to seam. I hemmed the edges and sewed buttonholes in the top. Then I taped off the edges and rolled on several coats of the orange wall paint. A custom shower curtain for only 10$!! 

I don't do a whole lot of fall decorating, but it was fun to add some touches to this room. My wig head was scored in a thrift store eons ago. She was plain when I got her so I painted her some features and some curly locks. My son was a huge superhero fan as a little boy so it seemed only fitting that this lovely lady sport her own mask for the holidays. And the vase was one I made when I decided to melt all the plastic spoons in my house. 

My kids artwork gets rotated here, there and everywhere. I love pulling out the 'Big green monster' for October. I probably have at least 60 of the little moveable toys {surely these things have a name? and surely me, of all people--owning 60 and all, should know the name} You push up on the bottom and the figures move. I have flowers, and Christmas, and animals, and circus...I started buying them for the kids and bought one everytime I came across one. They all sit on a shelf in the kids room and I spotted some Halloween ones when I walked by the shelf the other day.  

Inside my newly painted green drawers, I added some polka-dot paper to the bottom of each. This is thick awesome paper left over from decorating this event. 

The little green metal stool was in Targets college collection. I grabbed it on clearance for $10. It can easily get a new color and I could even recover/paint the cushion. 

Love the way my ombre pinecones turned out! I have quite a few left over from this wedding. I cleaned them a bit with a small dry paint brush by just dusting off any yucky stuff. Then I collected 4 shades of green paint {one from the cabinets} and 4 shades of orange {from the stripes on the walls}    

I visually divided the pinecone into 4 sections and starting with the darkest color at the bottom, I painted the tips. Aren't they fun?

These little knobs came from Anthro. I think they look great with Mr. Bubbles. 


And speaking of Mr. Bubbles, I painted this homage a while ago {I used to paint alot!}  The little square ottoman came from Homegoods several years ago. I used an old polka dot shower curtain {I throw nothing away} to make a little slipcover for it.

It's like a bowling alley in here, I wish I could fit the whole wall in a shot. 

The rugs were on clearance at Target. I think they were $9.

I posted about Jacks first swimsuit that I made a shadowbox for, here. I LOVE this thing. 

Silly, I know. I am trying to sidetrack you so you won't be grossed out that I am showing you a picture of my potty. A huge no-no, I know-know, but I am making a concession {and a tight crop}.  

I love adding just a pop of color to the edge of a door. 

 I think anytime you spend a fair amount of time in a bathroom with someone, you have a new level to your friendship, agreed? Thanks for visiting!
