Summer Home Tour Series- Seeking Lavendar Lane

Good Morning everyone! It is bittersweet for me today, as I am introducing the last guest in my Summer Home Tour Series for 2015. Bitter, because this series is coming to an end and I will miss sharing it as well as it representing the end of the lazy and fun filled summer days. Yet sweet because it has been such a wonderful experience meeting these wonderful bloggers and sharing their beautiful homes with you, all of our wonderful readers! Don’t worry though, I have all the traditional fall line-up and exciting things to share for the holidays, some with a few of the bloggers you’ve met during this series. 😉 Sooooo, 

Welcome to the grand finale tour of the 2015 Summer Home Tour Series with Deb from…
(Drum roll and symbols, please!!!)
Seeking Lavendar Lane! {Blow them away Deb!!! :)}

 This has been one fast summer but I have to admit I am getting that itch for Fall. I already started a few small projects to get ready…so this post couldn’t come any later. So happy to share my summer home tour and so grateful to be here at the Shelstring Blog. Welcome to my home! One of the first rooms you will see when entering our house is the Living Room. A great entrance to the house that has neutral tones with some pops of black and white and green. I especially love having our planked wall to hang coats on and add that farmhouse touch. My absolute favorite accessory here are the two photos above. Adding pops of green and nature to the inside. These are some photos that I printed out from Instagram. Having the black and white contrast is one of my favorites and bringing them to our DIY Roman Shades brings this wall together really nicely.

Having space for the kids to sit and do crafts and the cabinets filled with toys creates function in this not so casual room.

Just posted last week about these added touches. The faux shutters and the floating shelf over the couch complete this wall really nicely.

The TV stand was an Ikea hack and I built this Blanket Ladder using pallet wood.

We also DIY’d this Restoration Hardware Knock off Dining table. For the summer I added some greenery to the napkins that I picked from our backyard.

In our Kitchen, this is my newest addition…our chalkboard wall! Which I am LOVING…this wall needed a dramatic change..and I love how it’s coming together.
Though, our dining room still needs some finishing touches…coming this Fall!

Here is my White farmhouse kitchen. I love a white and bright kitchen and we created this entire kitchen two years ago for less than $400…with the new Ardex Feather finish countertops that we did during 4th of July weekend.

Last room on the downstairs is our Family room. The place we unwind and hang out in mostly. Though it’s small in size it really has that cottage style comfortable feeling that my family and I really enjoy. In the summer we really enjoy having the sliding door open and let in the warm air.

Finally our backyard has been getting a mini makeover by updating our Patio table and adding Rustic $0 Wood Shutters.
