How many times have I walked by this house never guessing what was behind closed doors? Today the garage door was open, and to my astonishment the garage had been converted to a delightful entertaining/recreation area. I happened to have my iPhone and couldn’t resist knocking on the door and asking if I could take photos to share with you. Luckily, the homeowner cordially agreed.
Let me start by telling you this lady has quite a talent for staging. Every little thing is in the just right place. I thought she might be an interior designer, but she is not. She does enjoy interior styling, however, both in her own and friends’ homes, using what is already there to create fresh new looks.
A wonderful old chest is a drop spot for athletic equipment. Look closely at the flowing curtains in the background. They are made from drop cloths and give not the faintest hint of the material’s intended purpose.
With so much to take in, it was hard to pick a favorite thing, but I finally decided it was the coffee table, actually an old galvanized watering trough turned upside down. For the wine corks, what could be better than a dough board?
With an eye toward cost effective decorating, this lady is a real hunter/gatherer. She combs thrift shops and antique shows looking for those special pieces that, in the right place, make everything seem new again. Hmmm, wonder what she could do at my place?
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
