359th Inspire Me Tuesday

Welcome to the 359th Inspire Me Tuesday.  Now that the Holidays are over, you guys are full on into sprucing things up around your homes.  I love seeing all of your projects.  Here are a few from last week.

When Christmas comes down things can look a little drab.  Not this fabulous sunroom that Shirley @ Housepitality Designs shared.  This is gorgeous.


I love it when something is repurposed.  These porch pickets became the most fabulous sconces.  Check out Quite Simply for her step by step tutorial.

Since I am in the middle of a kitchen remodel, this definitely caught my eye.  Amazing what a little paint can do to transform a room.  Check out The Turquoise Home to see the complete makeover.

Lighting makes all the difference in a kitchen.  The Honeycomb Home shared a fabulous tutorial for how to install lighting under your cabinets and above.  This looks fabulous and just adds such a beautiful touch and interest to her kitchen.

Ok, let's see what you have for this week.

Some Spaces You Havn't Seen - Upstairs

The kitchen remodel is coming along and so far I am loving it.  It just takes time to get everything done, so I am trying to be patient and just enjoy the process.  Still boxes to unpack and lots to get done, however I thought I would give you a tour of upstairs.  The "Builder Basic" has a great floor plan.   It functions very well for us.
UPSTAIRS
I am loving the separation you have with a two story home, and I also love that you can see most of downstairs from upstairs.

As you come upstairs you reach a really nice wide landing.  All the bedrooms, hall bath and loft branch off this landing.

From the railing on the left you can look down at the living/dining areas.  I love that I can see what is going on downstairs from up here.


You can see the door on the left to the master bedroom and the door on the right is the hall bath.
Master Bedroom



Hall Bath
Just your standard typical basic bathroom.  Small vanity, toilet and tub/shower combo.  This space needs a makeover but that is for down the road.


Back on the landing you can look straight ahead and hubby is going to use the largest guest bedroom for his office.  He likes to be able to close the door when he is on the phone, so this one is a great size and perfect location.


Nothing put away, just a table with his computer on it.  The carpet is being replaced with wood floors in about a month, then he can set it up like he wants.

Back out on the landing is the linen closet on the right, then the door is open to the second guest bedroom.



For the moment, this is the staging spot for all the paintings.  I sold everything from our old guest room, so I will need to find new furniture for this room.


Turn around on the landing and look back down the stairs and you see the entrance to the loft.


This is going to be my office and a den area when it is all set up.  I will share more later.


That's it.  The tour of upstairs.  Lots to do still, but we are making progress.

Fun Shopping At My Favorite Place

I am loving being back in my old neighborhood and near all of my favorite shopping places.  We lived in this area for 20 years before moving to the West side and our previous home.  I am so happy to not have to make an hour or more trip to come to some of my favorite haunts.

There are several things we need for the new home and of course I love looking for some great quality used furniture that I can repurpose for my needs.  There is one store that always has tons of fabulous things and it is by far my favorite place to browse.

  It is called J& K and it is at 28th St. and Bell Rd. in Phx.  Unreal.

There is always furniture out front.  They were unloading trucks full of new and used.  Always a mix of both.





 Cute little wash stand   I think the price was $59


 Just inside the door this is what I saw, again a mix of old and new.  It is so crammed full you can hardly walk through.


 Love that highboy,  they were selling this as a set.  Gorgeous 4 poster bed, highboy, dresser and night stands.  $799  I am not crazy about sets, but this was beautiful and great quality solid wood pieces.


 See how big this place is and this is just one room.  They do have great prices on sofas.


 So many dining tables and chairs.


 Sorry this is blurry.  I was trying to show you a different room and section.  Tons of bedroom furn.


 Different piece.  They have every style you could think of.


 Can you believe that chandelier!!!  Also look at that domed curio cabinet.  You never have any idea what you will find in here.


 Now we're into another whole section.


You can always find something here and their inventory changes all the time.

My favorite discount fabric store and Hotel Liquidators are right around the corner too.  How fun is this.  No more long drives, I am so close and loving it.
