More From the Bachman's 2013 Fall Ideas House...

Ready to continue the Bachman's 2013 Fall Ideas House tour?  Thank you for all of your visits and comments on part one!  Today we'll visit the dining room and kitchen areas!  Remember you can click on any photo for a closer look!

This wall treatment was done using a vintage 1950's wall roller...

Don't you love this antique buffet?

The kitchen is colorful and charming...

Dishtowels hanging from a cloth measuring tape make 
a fun window treatment...

and a metal ironing board is re-purposed as a message center!

One of my favorite outdoor canopy used as a pot rack!

Just off the kitchen is the lower level bathroom...isn't this 
a fun window treatment?

The embossed wallpaper is used as a decorative accent stripe...

Going upstairs, the wall is decorated with 
wood grain done with a paint roller...

Next post, we'll visit the upstairs...
but before I go...
look at this bat lurking in the laundry chute!

Remember, you can click on the photo at the top of my sidebar to visit my posts on all the previous Ideas Houses!

I am joining Linda over at Coastal Charm for Nifty Thrifty Tuesday
Debra over at Common Ground for The Marketplace

Until next time...
