Tour of My Home

I thought it would be fun to give all of my blog friends a tour of our home.  Candy at Keeping the Christian Home has done this with her home and I have always enjoyed looking through her pictures.  It's a great way to get ideas that can be useful to use in our own home.

This is our son's bedroom.  This bed unit is gigantic.  It has a trundle bed, desk, dresser and a closet in the back.
This is the other side of our son's room.  
This is our daughter's room.  It is in need of an update to go with her new older style. She will be 16 next week.  Hopefully, this summer it will be redone.
This is the other side of her room.  Here she is working hard.
This is the master bedroom.  It is a small room and we do not have a headboard for this reason.  I am thinking of getting a vinyl cling design medallion as a focal point between the two windows.
The other side of the master bedroom.
This is our living room.  This room is takes up one side of the first floor.
The other side of the living room.  We have our dining room in here also.  Our kitchen is small and a table would be too crowded.  I think this works much better.
This is one side of our kitchen.  It opens up into our bedroom.
This is the other side of the kitchen.
This is the view of the kitchen from the back entry way.  Sorry, it's a little dark.
This is the back entry way.  Across from the door is a pantry, door to the basement and the dog's kennel.
This is our bathroom cabinet and new light fixture.
This is the view going into the bathroom.  We only have one bath on the second floor.
Another view of the bathroom.  I just reorganized this cabinet last week.  I spray painted the metal cans that I had bought on clearance.  I purchased the white basket and added some pretty towels to the top of the cabinet.
This is the sink, it's original to the house. Not my favorite but it's here.  Next to it is the new shelf I bought last week and another pretty white basket to keep things neat.
I hope you have enjoyed the pictures of our home.  I would love to see some of yours.  If you post them please let me know so I can come and visit.  It's been fun sharing our home with you.  Later this week I will post pictures of the garden.  It's raining today and I couldn't take pictures.
