What’s better than a cool Fall Day…a cool Fall Day and a fabulous Home Tour. I sure hope you get to experience both! This weeks Cottage of the Week is FRESH and Fun! A home with it’s own signature home decor style. This house is truly home as it is filled with love…creativity…style and heart. Today the spotlight shines brightly on The Hand Made Home. Not only does the home have style…so does the blog…I have a confession…kind of crushin on this blog right now…when you visit you are going to see why!!!
First things first…I want to introduce you to Ashley and her husband Jamin.
They are the parents of 3 fabulous children and of course the doggie! They both truly believe in a beautiful, genuine, and approachable design for all and when you see this wonderful home…you can tell that everyone is happy happy! They have accomplished so much and still going. I think that Ashley’s newest motto is something that we can all jump on board with when it comes to home decor.”Don’t worry. Everything is going to be amazing” great sentiment and I really think she is on to something. I love this feeling towards home decor because many times we are paralyzed with doubt and fear and we may not try something that we really want to…Ashley is saying basically DO IT and she is SOOOOOO right! The more your get to know her…the more you will love her…so stop by and visit.
Let’s drop by for a cup of something yummy and let’s start in the kitchen. Ashely says it all started with a coat of paint!
To show you HOW much difference a coat of paint does make…I have to show you the before. and after…do I hear you saying WOW???? : )
This kitchen is so cottage fresh…so whimsical and fun. How fabulous is that farmhouse sink with the yellow gingham curtain..
The family fridge was very tired and needed a bit of a face lift…so Ashley took out the chalkboard paint and created a masterpiece…she says that it is one of her favorite projects.
The kitchen island is fabulous but it is even more FUN with the addition of this big chalkboard…handmade of course!
Then Ashley wanted something different over her cabinets…the word EAT is used a lot so she wanted something a little bit different so she made YUMMY and ENJOY…how much whimsy does this add to the room in fabulous yellow damask! LOVE it ans she shares the DIY!
