Green with envy eclectic home tour

Hi everyone!  I’m Jennifer and my blog is called Dimples and Tangles. 

Debbie knows that this is where I got a good start in my blogging journey by participating in her “Newbie” link parties, and where I met some great blog friends!  I’m honored to be here today sharing my home tour.

 Welcome!

 
We purchased this home about 6 1/2 years ago, and have updated, painted, replaced, and touched almost every single part!  Of course, it’s still a work in progress and there is always something else I want to do.  Come on in…
 

 

You will soon see that I love color, especially green with a healthy dose of black and white.  On display in our Entry are a thrifted pair of lamps that got a re-make, a second hand dresser, and a pair of antlers scored for free on Craigslist!
 
 

 

We have a very open floor plan, and the entry, living room, and dining room all share the main part of the house.
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
The Dining Room-the star is the china cabinet that I bought from Craig’s List and painted.  

 

 

Oh, but I guess these guys like to show off a little bit too.  Once again, a Craig’s List purchase that I re-fashioned to be host chairs for my dining room table.  The Chiang Mai Dragon fabric on the back gives them an element of surprise.
 

 

 

 
 This room gets plenty of use, especially for parties!
 

 

This is a hallway that was dark with no natural light.  I collected mirrors from everywhere and painted them all the same color to make a unique wall treatment, also allowing some light to bounce around.
 
 
All of the woodwork in our home, except for the baseboards and crown moulding, was stained oak.  In this photo you can see a little bit of a built in china cabinet on the right that was my first experiment with painting the oak.  
 
 
I found a roll of grasscloth wallpaper at a thrift store and used a portion of it to line the back of the cabinet.  It holds a lot of my serving pieces in easy reach.
 
 
After successfully painting the hall china cabinet, almost every other bit of oak cabinetry got painted, including the kitchen cabinets and living room built-ins.  

 

 

 

 



I recently completed this pair of lanterns that came from the Habitat ReStore and were shiny brass.  You can also see a bit of my chalk wall that I painted in a little nook of the kitchen.

 

 
The breakfast nook in the kitchen- with a botanical gallery wall that I made using inexpensive frames and pages from a book, and a made over second-hand table, chairs, and loveseat.

 

 

 

Just off the entry is our Office,  which we use for a multi-purpose Movie, Wii, Piano, Computer, and Craft room.  This is the only room where I kept the original stained woodwork, and it is filled to the brim with DIY projects, including the made from scratch drum shade over the vintage chandelier.
 

 

 

 

My daughter’s room is colorful and happy, just like her!  All of the furniture is second hand and many of the accessories were thrifted or DIY projects.  Her ceiling fan got a major DIY style upgrade when I couldn’t find any new fans for her room that I liked (we live in Oklahoma-some ceiling fans are a must!).

 

 

 

 

 

 

My laundry room is full of gallery walls of special family photos, momentos, and children’s artwork.  
 

 

 

Our back yard and patio are home base in the summer for the neighbor kids…I love it!

 

 

My son’s room is in progress,

 

 
and I’m planning the Great Master Bedroom Makeover for 2014!  Why don’t you come on over and follow along?
 
Before I leave you, I’ll show you a little glimpse of my Christmas Home.  I’m in denial that it will all need to be packed up soon!
 
 
 

 

 

 

 
 
I hope you enjoyed touring my home, and I would love for you to come visit me at Dimples and Tangles soon! Debbie, thank you so much for having me today.
Happy New Year Everyone!
