Bachman's 2012 Ideas House Part 2...Upstairs...

Thank you for all of your wonderful comments about part one of the Bachman's 2012 Fall Ideas House tour!  In this post, I'll share some of the upstairs ideas!  As you go up the stairs, the wall were decorated with layered cabinet doors and window art...

They were simply screwed together...

They were embellished with vintage spools, used as vases!

I love this simple photo display around the windows...

The bathroom was decorated with natural elements...

bark panel wallpaper...

How about cute burlap flowers embellishing the shower curtain?

There were other display ideas in the upstairs, for photos and jewelry...

My favorite room in this Ideas House is the Nursery!  Lots of fun ideas here!

A buffet becomes a changing table!

I thought this door sign was so sweet ...

Next post, I'll finish the upstairs tour!  Remember, you can visit posts from all of the previous Ideas Houses by clicking on the link under my header!

Until next time...enjoy the weekend!

  22. I am a 4th generation Bachman and just love what u did.
    Hattie and Henry Bachman are my great grandparents and I have been to the bachmans florist and taken the tour there but have not seen the house renovated like this. It is soooo much history for me. Brought back many memories. Thanks so much .

  24. So many awesome ideas in one place - my head is swimming. I really do want that bathroom in my house. Love the hexagonal floor and the sink is great. And the rusty basket with towels in amazing. I just need to figure out how to plan a trip up there and then convince them to sell the house with all the furnishings in it to me.
