The 2012 Bachman's Fall Ideas House Part 3...Upstairs..

Ready for some more inspiration from the 2012 Bachman's Fall Ideas House?  I really appreciate all of your nice comments on the last post! Today I'll share the rest of the upstairs!  
This space is the Dog Room!  It's a tongue-in-cheek, over-the-top area for the family dog!

Look at these dog dishes made into mirrors...

and this closet for the well-dressed pup!

 The room even had its own outdoor space with a bone-shaped pool!  I'll bet my spoiled pugs, Sophie and Bailey, would fit right in...

The last room in the upstairs is the office.  The desk is made of old doors...

with decorative fabric hung across the front.

The same fabric covered the closet door!

Miniature chalkboards serve as fun file folder labels.

The window coverings had a great industrial vibe...metal panels hung on rebar rods...

and the light fixture was created with yardstick pieces!

In the next post, I'll finish up the tour with the outdoor spaces!

Until next time...I'm enjoying spending time with my mother who is visiting from California


  1. Ha! The dog room is a hoot! I'm loving the yard stick light in the office, too.

  6. I love that dog room! You'd better get one of those for your babies Linda! LOL

  7. They really take it up a knotch. The desk is great.

  8. Can't decide on a favorite from this post. First I thought the desk, then maybe the fabric covered closet door, but I think I have to say the yard stick light.

    Thanks you so much for sharing and the doggie stuff was cute too but office is my fav so far.

  9. Oooo! over the top doggie room is right.
    I do love that office though. The desk is fantastic and so it the yard stick light shade!

    Love, love, love when you show us around the Bachman house, Linda.
    ...have fun with your mom! Pat

  16. That adorable doggie room has me just cracking up. Love the dog bone placemats ready to catch any spills at the table! After all, good table manners are always important! And the table turned upside down to create a space for resting after a heavy meal... genius! Thanks for sharing!
