Parade of Homes Feature

Hi everyone!  Thanks for stopping by for the Parade of Homes blog hop!

House of Smith's is a fun new blog my husband, Cason and I started in order to track the cosmetic part of our families progress on our home remodel and design style, shift! As a full time stay at home Mom of three beautiful girls and running a small business from home, I have found a new appreciation for the beauty and upkeep of my house! And as each day goes by, and a new project gets done the phrase "Love the Space You're In" becomes more and more meaningful to me!

I often try to find new fun ways to update, change, and decorate our "space" on a budget. There's something to be said about finishing a great project in your home, looking back, and saying to each other... 

"WE did that !!!"

The House of Smiths blog is my way to share, inspire, and learn from our new attempts at tackling projects on our very long list of "things to do!"

At the Smith house, our motto is... "Making a house, our HOME... one space at a time!"

For my regular readers, some of this might be repeat.   But there's a lot of NEW fun projects that we have been working on, that I waited till NOW to reveal

The three spaces that I have chosen to show are:

The Laundry Room

Our Girly Bathroom
My third daughter, Aubrielle's, bedroom!

Here we go!

Ready more about our Laundry room transformation HERE and HERE
If you think we're done with this space... well... we're not. LOL
Just imagine walls coming down....... I'll leave you with  that thought

This room still has a LONG way to go, but the progress, so far as been LOTS of fun!
I love the direction it's going.

this chick... I think :)

Cason would KILL me if I didn't tell everyone to STOP... and LOOK UP!
This ceiling transformation was MY FAVORITE!
Cason did ALL the work on this one! with a little help from his brother and his soon to be wife!
I love to watch our "visions" come to life!
(especially when I don't have to paint with my arm straight up in the air. LOL.  Love you babe :)

This  bathroom has been BEYOND fun to transform!
I'm still working on decorating inside that little cabinet...is anything really... ever "done"??? ha!

I had seen the wall in your bathroom, but I LOVED seeing the whole thing and the before and after shots!! They did a wonderful job with the ceiling. Who would have thought to do that, but it makes such a big difference!

  17. Hey I hope you don't care if someday I copy all of your house! :) haha I really do love it. I can't get over the cuteness of the bathroom ceiling. And did you make the bench in Aubriele's room? I've been looking for one just like that for Sadie and the closest I've found so far is $99 at Ikea so if you have a good place to find on let me know.

  18. SHUT UP! You did not bead board your ceiling! I'm in love...LOVE I tell you...I am so going to have to do that...My husband might have to call Cason for some sympathy! We just put our house up for sale...so maybe if I give him just a little time...he'll forgive me! Aubrielle's room turned out so soft and feminine...funny now to see the befores! Love your house Shelley! You are amazing!

  19. Great displays girl!!! I almost jumped out of my seat with your chunky base board tutorial! I was just saying to my husband yesterday how badly I wanted to do new (BIG) base boards :)

  22. I love your blog. I love your style and all your projects. And I really enjoyed your post about the negative comment. It's about time someone did more about it than just mention it. Your projects are always so inspiring. I'm trying to paint a kids entertainment center and I loved the color of your tin in your laundry room. Did you buy it with that blue aqua color or did u paint it? Just wondering if you have a specific color because it's perfect.

  23. I love you blog. It's so inspiring and your style is so clean and fresh. I loved your post on the negative comment. So hilarious and necessary!

    I love the color of your tin in your laundry room. Did you paint it? Just wondering what the color is because I'd love to paint a kids entertainment center that color. Thanks. (amberpitt@gmail.com)

  26. Ok Shelly... you are official on my " Not sure we can be friends anymore" list. What on earth did you have to be afraid of girl! "Not worthy! Not Worthy!" Still love you and your house! I love the vinyl in the boxes in the bathroom! Favorite!!! Hugs!

  27. You know, i was just telling my husband "this woman has an eye"....you've got it! You've done a great job and i love looking at the great stuff you've done. I've stole some ideas already:)

  28. So beautiful! Thanks for letting us in to your home and sharing all your great ideas!

  29. Your home is beautiful! So happy I found your blog. I am a new follower. :)

  30. Wow! Look at you girl. You are like famous. I am sure Jaman and I will be seeing you on HGTV soon. And I will be so lucky to know you and be able to call you my friend. You do fabulous work! Now go get studying religion, and get a job for spending all that money! Thrift stores aren't cheap you know. :) People are ridiculous. They really need to worry about their own life. Love ya! Hope all is well. I about called you when I was making Bridger his canvas blocks. I didn't have yellow or green vinyl and didn't really want to order two whole rolls for this little project. So lets just say I did a ghetto move and I painted the vinyl. Yep that is right I painted the vinyl and it still turned out cute. Ha Ha!
