Dreaming of Design…The Past.




     Today I wanted to show you around the house that we used to live in.  My decorating style is still pretty much the same, but I find myself taking more risks on Preston Drive.  We entered this house starting out as two love birds, who were expecting their first child and left the house as a family of five! We packed that house with memories and a whole lot of love, let’s start the tour.

Our old neighborhood was all Cape Cod style homes; it was a beautiful place to live with a ton of character.

The front porch was large and spacious and a great place to let the kids play so they wouldn’t be near the street.

I always wanted to paint the kitchen cabinets white, but was too scared to take the plunge.  The chalkboard was my favorite part of the kitchen and was so easy to make, just some trim and chalkboard paint and it was ready to go in under an hour and a half!

The breakfast nook was probably the busiest part of the house, many meals, crafts and even home preschool happened there.

Off of the kitchen area was the living room, it took years for me to get this room looking just right for me (the painting was only for staging purposes; otherwise we had our family pictures there.)

The master bedroom was off of the living room, it was so long that we often referred to it as “The Bowling Alley.”

I love our headboard that Mr. Preston Drive and I built.  We have it in our new master bedroom, but are making changes to it, so be on the lookout for a post soon.

Our master bathroom was pretty decent in size, and had a huge window letting in tons of natural light.

Outside the breakfast nook and living room was our screened in porch, we loved this part of the house.  In the summer we would put a kiddie pool out there and the kids would be safe from sunburn and bugs, we ate a lot of meals out there too when it wasn’t too hot or cold.

In the kids bathroom we added wainscoting and I made numbered mirrors with door knobs below for the kids and guests to hang their towels on.

I can’t seem to find any pictures of the kid’s rooms and playroom, but that’s more than likely due to the fact that I was always changing them around.  For our first home that place was perfect, but as our family grew we knew that we were on the verge of out growing it.  All three of our babies were brought home from the hospital to this house and it will always have a special place in my heart.

     I’m off to do some yard work. Sorry I haven’t posted much lately, but man we have been non-stop for about 2 weeks! I am ready for summer and to have all of our kidlets home all day! Hopefully I can get some projects and finishing touches done soon so you can see more of Preston Drive.
