Are you all ready for a sweet and beautiful Home Tour today? One that is filled with hand painted furniture that is wonderful and amazing? Ok…you are in the right place! So grab your cup of something yummy and join me as we visit Danielle and her family at Finding Silver Pennies!
First I would love you to meet Danielle, the love of her life Luke and their 2 wonderful children John and Connor.
and of course the family pup POPPY! This fabulous family drove just about forever and rescued this precious pup…I would say Poppy is a LUCKY Puppy!
I think you will enjoy this tour. First we are going to drop by the families first home. One that is cottage fresh with a beachy vibe! Then we will take a peek at some of the fabulous painted pieces that Danielle has created (I know you are going to love this and this) and then we are going to visit the new home where things are in progress. We will be dropping by to see the new house when it is completed for sure! I think you will find it very interesting and probably can relate to what Danielle told me about decorating the new home…”So hard when you move and start again, but it is funny my style is kind of evolving. Our new house is historic and I can’t be soooo beachy and modern, but I’m loving decorating it – with touches of the beach, some modern lighting and lots of salvaged and antique finds. I’m planning on doing a gentleman’s living room with a chesterfield style couch and lots of antique books (but just have to find the right couch and the right price).” I am sure you can relate! Can’t wait to see what she does : )
Welcome to this loving families first home.
Welcome to the Living Room…a cottage fresh space!
An inviting room to enjoy family and friends. The mantel during the Spring has a Nautical Theme and changed throughout the seasons.
You can almost feel the salt air!
Drop for more enchanting details.
You could sure tell when Spring had Sprung!
Had to share this beauty…Danielle also shares the fact that it is faux…pretty amazing isn’t it! I would never know ….but I know it is the ONLY kind of orchid that I could grow and in case you are of the black thumb disease…thought it was good to know in case you wanted to bring a touch of nature into the room!
The Kitchen is bright and airy like a summer day on the Mass Coast! I adore that the entire room is eclectic but is all tied together with a gorgeous blue…pops of crisp whites and oh those fabulous oars over the doors…LOVE it!
The Master Bedroom was very coastal also! The Handmade Headboard…FABULOUS and she shares the DIY and all of her inspirations.
One of the show stoppers in this room is also Isla the Dresser…She’s a beauty and was handpainted by Danielle! A bit of beach shabby! Don’t you love her.
Nautical takes center stage once again in this perfect little boys room! Anchors Aweigh!
It’s all about the accessories!
How about this distressed side table that Danielle created…perfect for this room…what a treasure! How cool is it that most of the furniture was Danielle’s growing up! Budget friendly and fabulous!
Then there is this refinished piece…just gorgeous and perfect!
Then there is this perfectly painted piece! WOW!
I think a lot of memories were made in this room…don’t you!
For all of you that are on a budget and have children…you have to visit the Play Room…you will be inspired!
Every playroom needs one of these!
Just in case you asked why do you need on…here is your answer : )
Now there are a few rooms left to visit in the old home…so drop by and check them out! There is even a guest room you can stay in : )
I have to show you the new home now! Danielle and family…everyone here at The Cottage Market Family wishes you and yours much happiness and joy in you new beautiful home!
You so need to visit and see all of the amazing features in this historic home. The woodworking is fabulous…check out this stair case!
I know that many of you will have little heart flutters when I tell you that these original crystal knobs are on every door!
This is just an example of what the rooms are like…here is the dining room…I picked this one because Danielle has finished this room so I get to show you the before and after!
Now for a peek at the kitchen in progress!
A bathroom sneak peek!
Then you can take a peek at the back yard…someone is enjoying it!
Now for that Dining Room Reveal! Danielle calls it Designing on a Dime! Just look what you can do on a budget…some fabulous finds and some hard work!
The Chandelier is no short of AMAZING!!!
Elegant…eclectic and oh so original.
The perfect seat!
The room has such glorious personal touches…like this lithograph called “the Time Honored Guest” by Dendy Sadler…it used to hang in Danielle’s Parents Restaruant, Baldwin’s. I adore it!
So stop by for more inspiration and historic fun in the new Dining Room! You will love it!
I for one can’t wait to see what Danielle and family create next in their new home…like I said…I promise to keep you up to date with a home tour when everything is done! Now I want to share some of Danielle’s painted furniture creations! She is in love with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and Miss Mustard’s Seeds Milk Paint. I know so many of you love to refurbish and upcycle furniture so sharing some of these projects would obviously be something you would enjoy. The best part is is that Danielle also gives full tutorials! Check some of these beauties out!
Drop by and meet CoCo Before and After…she appears french but is actually American!
Oh and this is ravishing Rosalind Dresser…Before and After!
Then there is Lovely Leah Dresser all gorgeous in the perfect hue of blue!
Oh and then there is the incredible Delphine! Hearts a flutter!!!
Then there is this amazing wine table Talia…terrific tutorial!
Then there is Gwen…The Grain Sack Dresser…everyone needs the DIY on this gorgeous piece!
Then there is Simone who has a place of honor in the new Dining Room…no wonder…she is spectacular!
And then you must visit Beatrice! All I can say is WOW!!!!
One thing is for certain…you are going to love visiting all of the fabulous Before and Afters and there is so much to see…learn and tons of inspiration. I really wanted to add this so you have yet another source to refer to while you are creating your own living space. The treatments that Danielle uses are cost effective but yet look simply amazing. So just keep all of this in mind when you are at that Flea Market and see a tired and used piece of furniture…discarded and ignored…adopt it…bring it home and give it love…it will pay you back ten fold…just like an adopted pet like Poppy…thank you Danielle and family for saving her…loving her and treating her as family…I love a happy ending!
Everyone here at The Cottage Market Family wants to thank Danielle and her wonderful family for having us over today…they were truly hostesses with the mostess. We have enjoyed seeing where you have been…where you are and where you are going with your style and flair! You can be sure we will be knocking on your door often! Just can’t wait for the next update…I know it will be amazing! Also we thank you for all of the incredible tips…tutorials and inspirations. I am sure when people see your gorgeous upcycled furniture…that chalk and milk paint will be coming out and some old pieces will become new and beautiful again!
Stay in touch with Danielle and visit Silver Pennies often…you never know what you are going to find! : )
