End of the Tour- The Bachman's 2013 Spring Ideas House...

Today I'll share the rest of the 2013 Bachman's Spring Ideas House!  If you missed any of the tour, or want to visit posts from any of the previous houses since 2010, just click on the link under my header!  We'll start with some of the fun ideas in the downstairs powder room ...

Going up the stairs, the walls are decorated with large statement pieces...

the flowers are metal along with paper placemats!

The house is styled to be the home of an event planner...this is her office.

Greeting cards with great fashion prints are hung between two old posts...

and birds are everywhere...

How about this great wall calendar~ notepaper covered with plexiglass and molding!

A vintage card table becomes a bulletin board...

Here's the upstairs bathroom...

The girl's bedroom was colorful and fun!

Love these great paper flowers!

The master bedroom was calm and restful...

The final room is the event planner's workroom...

I love all the chalkboards painted on the walls, framed with molding, as well as the bedspring inspiration boards...

Lots of great ideas!  I hope you enjoyed the tour!  The house is open through April 28th!  The next Ideas House is September 12- October 6, 2013...always a great one!  Thank you for all of the wonderful comments you leave on these posts!

Until next time...I'll be working hard to get everything ready for Junk Bonanza, starting on Thursday!

  18. I love the curtains in the downstairs powder room with clothespins? Could you please email how they were made?
