{My Naked House Tour}

Made ya look! 😉 Come take a tour of my “naked” house (pictures from while it was still bare)! This “bare all” sans furniture and decor tour is a preface to an upcoming decorated house tour! No need to knock, just come on in!

Since my husband had our last house built shortly before we met, he let me pick EVERYTHING for our new house!! During this nine month labor of love, I had SO much fun researching and looking at lighting, hardware, trim, carpet, tile, hardwood and more to customize our home to suit our style and lifestyle!

We’ve only been living here for a week and a half but this house has quickly become a home to us! After four days I had nearly everything unpacked (other than items for storage in the basement and my craft room) and now the next fun part begins…decorating!! Don’t miss my request for your suggestions at the end of this post because I just LOVE collecting ideas! #hellopinterest

{My Former Master Bedroom Retreat}

While I continue to wait in anticipatory delight for my next haven, I thought I’d give you a tour of my prior master bedroom sanctuary! Along with showcasing our DIY projects, below I share pictures as well as where I purchased some of the items. Down the road I’ll share the instructions for making {My Faux DIY Floating Shelf} that my husband built and stained to match the headboard as well as {My DIY Aluminum Lanterns} shown on the side table next to the chevron slipper chair below. And if you haven’t seen {My Geometric Print DIY Canvas Wall Art} project, it’s not to late!

{My Geometric Print DIY Canvas Wall Art}

In recent years I have really fallen for geometric shapes and patterns. Inspired by color field paintings, this project combined that love with my infatuation for DIY projects and large-scale art — a perfect union! It also met the need for wall art in my master bedroom and coordinates nicely with my other patterns, so I was quite tickled!

I created my DIY wall art by eyeballing a layout and placing thin tape accordingly. Then I painted over the tape and removed it before the acrylic paint dried; the key is removing the tape before the paint dries.

Stay tuned for instructions and tips on {My DIY Aluminum Lanterns} and {My Striped Wall Paint Techniques} in upcoming posts!
