Hello Hello… DebbieDoos readers. I am so excited that Debbie asked me to be part of her Home Tour series here on her blog. If you have not been to my blog, my name is Diane and I love everything creative, colorful, and DIY.
I have lived in my house over 20 years and as someone who enjoys DIY and decorating, my house has seen A LOT of changes. I have had plenty of time for trial and error which has helped me streamline my style. I love my house more now than I ever have before.
My blog logo reflects my style – lots of white with plenty of color pops.
A few years ago, I stripped the carpet from the staircase in my foyer. The steps were made of pine boards, but I didn’t let that stop me from redoing them. It was not easy, but well worth every bit of effort my husband and I but into it.
I named this room my Studioffice since it is part office and part studio. It is my favorite room in my house. I spend quite a bit of time in here – creating projects and taking photos of them for my blog.
This room has been the hardest room to decorate. It is narrow and has a focal feature on every wall. Once I created a floating furniture grouping in the center of the room it all started to come together. I have used DIY Chalk paint on quite a few of the pieces.
Everything I do to decorate my home has been done on a very tight budget. This brass chandelier makeover saved me hundreds of dollars since I did not have to buy a new one.
I recently have been updating my kitchen. I am using lots of color. The chairs were dark green with natural wood seats. I have painted them 3 times in the 20 years since I have had them. From green to yellow to black and now multi-colors. This by far is the most colorful transformation they have had.
I will be updating some of the colors in my bedroom soon. The new bed quilt is the first new addition the room has had in a long time.
To make the guest room more inviting for guests. I used lots of fabric and paint to update a roomful of hand-me down furniture.
I redid this bathroom top to bottom for $265.
This is the room where most people enter my house. I call it Grand Central Station. Lots of action happens in here.
I hope you enjoyed the tour.

Thanks Debbie for asking me to share my home with your readers.
My best- Diane
