My in laws have lived in 4 homes in the 13 years my husband and I have been together! And with each home, they have customized it in unique ways that I am always crazy about! My mother-in-law is a constant source of inspiration for me! Before we were married, we would go to flea markets with them (still do whenever possible!) and I was always inspired by how she would incorporate the oddities she would find!
When they purchased this home, they asked us to help! So we all got to work! And here are some snippets of the finished product.
Ikea kitchen cabinets for the win!!
This is the basement composed of a couple of bedrooms (storage for now and a craft room) and a place for the grandkids to hang out.
Haven't they done a great job of accomplishing a shabby cottage look without it being too frilly or feminine? It's got a very comfortable feel to it. Fresh and ever-changing!
