Inside of the house

The Laundry room is pink and brown. I know that alot of men would not have been ok with pink in their house. But when you think about it, women are the ones that are in the laundry room the most, so I figured I could make it as girly as I please!
Our bedroom is my favorite room in the house. I love our beadboard walls with the brown above. This room makes me feel happy when I enter it and that is what I wanted it to do. Austin is very talented at building and doing finish work, so I love having him do special touches in our house that make it unique. How lucky am I to have such a sweet husband!?!
The den. This room was a lot harder then I thought it was going to be. I wallpapered the walls with textured wallpaper and then painted it tan. Then I aged it with a dark wood stain to make it look old and vintage. I thought it would probably only take a day or two.....not even close. But I think it turned out cute and we love it, so I guess I can't complain.
The bathroom on the main floor is black with white beardboard up toward the ceiling (another excellent choice of Austins). I was a little scared to paint walls black, but love it when I've seen it in other homes. So, I decided to be daring and figured it was just paint, I could always redo it. I ended up loving it and am glad i did it.
My mom was such a helper on the main floor. She helped me wallpaper, paint and assemble furniture in just 2 days. Austin , my dad, and brothers were in California on vacation and I wanted to get it all done for when Austin got home. It about kicked our butts staying up long hours, but we got it all done and Austin was thrilled when he got home.
