Southern Traditional meets Casual Comfort home tour

Hey everyone!

I am so excited to be sharing my home with all of Debbie’s friends here at Debbiedoos! Thank you so much Debbie for inviting me!

My name is Sonya and I write a blog called At Home with The Barkers.

Our Southern Traditional home is a place where you are welcome to sit down and put your feet up.

Each room is decorated with casual comfort in mind and more than likely painted furniture :)

We live in the Upstate of South Carolina.

My husband and I were born and raised here but moved away for 10 years.

When we moved back home 6 years ago we were in search of house specifically in this school district.

We were thrilled when we found Our Home in a great neighborhood 2 miles from the school.

Welcome, come on in…

Front Door Entry

When you enter the front door you have a view to the Family Room.

When you look to your right you will see the dining room.

I painted my dining room table with spray paint, yep, sure did!

And that red dresser is another painted piece, painted with Annie Sloan Chalk paint.

Although dining rooms are “suppose” to be formal, I’m not a formal kinda girl.

This dresser in the foyer and items here get moved around all the time.

Family Room

This is our family room where we lounge and watch TV. I have had that sofa for 12 years and it is worn and perfectly comfortable.

That bicycle pillow is a cute find from Home Goods and that coffee table, well she’s on the “to paint” list.

The magazine basket is one of my favorite thrifty finds. It was .50!

Debbiedoos Guest Tour Bathroom

This is the downstairs bathroom that guests will use.

The plantings under the window are actually from Ikea. It added a little fun to this bathroom.

Kitchen Makeover Full cabinet

The kitchen is where I spend most of my day. I sit here at the table and use my laptop to blog.

And my husband works from home so breakfast, lunch and dinner I’m still here!

Kitchen Makeover New Paint

You can take a full tour of the kitchen before I painted it here and after I painted it here.

And I also painted those cabinets myself…you can see that here.

My husband put in the tumbled stone back splash!

This summer my daughter and I did a makeover on her room.

If you want to see it all you can go here.

Teen Girl Room Makeover

I love making art pieces…Paint, duct tape, t-shirts are all used and I love adding them to gallery walls.

My daughters room above and below is the hall that leads to my sons room.

Feel free to visit At Home with The Barkers anytime and follow along with my DIY, crafting, and painting journeys.

Be sure to say Hey and remind me we meet at Debbiedoo’s!

Have a great day,

    There’s so many things to love in this home! The “eat cookies” sign, the striped lamp in your daughter’s room, the red dresser…I could go on! Lovely!
