Parade of Homes… Stop No. 16

Thanks for Sharing!


Welcome Parade of Homes visitors and all my blogging buddies!

I’m so honored and excited to be apart of this exciting week.  I know I’ve loved peeking inside all the fabulous homes this week.

If you’re new here, I’m a bargain-searchin’, diy, craft and paint-lovin’ mom of 3.  We bought this home about 3 1/2 years ago.  3 months after moving in my hubby got laid off and didn’t have a full-time job again for over 2 years.  So this home has been decorated by lovingly repurposing stuff around the home, garage sale goodies and freebies.

I hope you enjoy your tour…

Thank you for come on a little tour of part of my home!

Thank you Andy at Poppies at Play for setting up this fun event.  On Saturday, Poppies at Play will be having a parade linky party where you can show off your home too!

Tomorrow morning the parade continues with Isabella and Max Rooms… I’ll see you there!

  1. So I really need to know what you have on your master — is that wallpaper on the accent wall or a painted pattern? I know it’s been a while but anything you remember about which paint color/company you used would be helpful. Just getting ready to do my own and I’m so inspired by yours – it’s exactly what I am going for.

  2. Gorgeous home! I love the saying on your craft room wall… I always wondered why my dreams were so big. I am just growing into mine…. a nice way to look at it. Cheers!

  3. Maryann!!! you have a beautiful home! You have worked so hard to make it your own! Fabulous work my dear!

  4. Thank you for sharing. I really enjoyed your wall mounts and had a lot of fun deciphering your "number plates" – what a great way to show important dates 🙂

  6. Loved the tour, thanks so much for inviting me. (lol) I am still smitten by the wall treatment you did in your master bedroom. Just yummy. Some how I missed seeing your roman shades for your bedroom. Love the material you used.

  7. Your kids rooms are so adorable! I love that scalloped pink edge in your girls room! So cute! I love the color of your bedroom too! So perfect for a sanctuary:) Thanks so much for the wonderful tour of your home!!

    What an inspiration your home is! I always say that anyone can make a warm and inviting home, no matter what their budget allows. Your home absolutely proves that!

  16. Hi Maryann-

    Thanks for the tour. I painted the walls in ny bedroom blue too – it is so calm and serene – as you call it your oasis. You give me hope that your husband found work after 2 years in transition. My hubby passed the two year mark on April 1st.

    My best- Diane
