During my almost 5 years of blogging, I have had the pleasure of meeting so many wonderful women out there in blogland. Susie Harris is one of the most delightful of those girls that I’ve gotten to meet in person. She stayed at my house, we went shopping together, along with Layla at the longest yardsale in 2009 and she has been a friend ever since. She’s adorable and sweet and I want to show you her house today.
Susie is very talented too and paints some of the most beautiful handmade signs. She is always changing her house around and has gone in a gray direction in its latest evolution. It’s very pretty and serene and I hope you enjoy the tour. Susie is a sweetheart and if you don’t know her, you must stop by and say hello!
She goes with a mostly neutral palette of taupey-beiges and blue grays and it makes for a beautiful backdrop.
There’s one of Susie’s signs that she hand painted. Beautiful!
Check out this DIY trumeau mirror that she made. The girl is talented, yes she is!
Another adorable sign, I love this one. Good to take note of every day!
And more with a family name.
Susie recently did a little renovating in her master bedroom. It seems that she was tired of that 4 poster bed she had, so she did what any DIYer would do. She chopped them off! 🙂 Now that cracked me up!
She didn’t stop there, since she had her heart set on an upholstered headboard, she set about covering the old headboard with a plywood box, wrapping it in fabric and adding nailhead trim.
And here it is, all done!
She gives a little tutorial on how she did it. I’m paying attention, since my sis and I are about to tackle an upholstered headboard ourselves.
Susie’s kitchen is so pretty with gray cabinets, white walls and some funky floral fabric. Love it!
Her dining room.
And her youngest daughter’s bedroom is soothing in gray and pink.
Susie has a beautiful home in Louisiana and I hope you’ll take the time to go over and say hello. You’ll be glad you did. Susie will be joining us at the Haven Conference in June of next year and I can’t wait to see her again.
Thanks Susie, for stopping by today, my friend!
