spring 11 ideas house

 {this is not my house}

are you ready for another tour of the Bachman's ideas house? if you'd like, you can visit some from last year: spring 10, summer 10, & holiday 10

this house was built in the early 1920's & for spring 11 it was decorated with a European Romance theme, many of the one-of-a-kind items were for sale (it is highly recommended that you visit the first day if you'd like to purchase any of the one-of-a-kind items, as once they're sold, they're sold)... enjoy the tour...

first of all in the above photo, the house numbers were made with decorative plates with stenciled numbers
 on the front porch, lovely pastel colored glass bottles turned into a hanging ceiling fixture
 in the living room, stained-glass window turned into coffee table, book pages as wallpaper
 in the sunroom, vintage wall sinks repurposed into planters
 also in the sunroom, baby buggy turned into planter
 in the dining room, decorative plates with mirrors used as wall collage
 dining room table set for an Easter meal
 if you have a dog, children's chairs repurposed as dog dishes
 in the kitchen, wood drawers repurposed as wall shelving
 global explorer theme in the boy's bedroom, globes cut in half to create pendant lights
 wood sliding door reused as a headboard
 scrapbooking room
 lunch boxes used as storage containers, radiator cover turned into magnetic wall calender
 fabric strips turned into curtain valance
 cork added to window frames to create bulletin board
 potting bench turned into a storage/work unit
 ballerina theme in the girl's bedroom
 decorative handrail turned into a ballet bar, garden trellis behind mirrors
 cabinet rebuilt into a desk unit with integrated pendant light
 puffy decorative runner wrap used as curtain valance
 ballet slippers hanging from light fixture
in the master bedroom, decorative metal railing repurposed as scarf storage, wooden spools for necklace holders
