Hymns & Verses 2018 Spring Home Tour

Even though there is snow on the ground here in Pennsylvania, I’m here today to share my 2018 Spring home tour.  This weeks’ home tours, hosting by Marty of A Stroll Thru Life have been full of spring inspiration.  If you missed any of the tours, you can see the entire list at the end of this post with links to visit each one!  If you are here visiting from Thistlewood Farm, welcome!  KariAnne is one of my all time favorite bloggers and her new Texas home is just amazing!  I have loved seeing her add that signature Thistlewood touch to each space!

2018 Spring Home Tour

Living Room

We’ll start today’s tour in the living room.  If you follow me, you know that I recently took on the rather daunting project of reupholstering a French Bergere sofa that I found on Craigslist.  Here is the finished sofa and I’m so happy that I did it!  You can see a before shot of the sofa HERE.  And, to hear all about the reupholstery process, click HERE.  Behind the sofa is a little spring gallery wall that I created.  I’m looking for a special piece for this wall space and I just haven’t found it yet.  So, in the meantime, it’s fun to create expensive wall decor with some downloadable art from Etsy.

Here’s a look at my mantel.  I really wanted to have fresh flowers for the mantel, but mother nature had other plans with a spring snowstorm!  So, faux flowers it is!  Faux flowers and greenery have come such a long way and even Pottery Barn is featuring a larger selection of faux flowers this year!

I changed up my living room curtains with these gauzy off white panels.  The off white really warms up the mostly gray and white space.

I also added some off white accessories, like this dried shola wreath.

2018 Spring Home Tour - Library Table Vignette

This great cutwork ceramic egg is from Pottery Barn.  I got it several years ago and they actually brought them back last year.  It’s one piece of Easter decor that I use every year!

I purchased this amazing wicker trunk for another space and it just didn’t work out there as planned.  So, I moved it here to the entryway for now.  The butterfly artwork is something I created for Spring to sell in my Etsy shop.  I’ll be launching an entire butterfly collection next week, so stay tuned.

Here’s a closer look at the canvas print.

And, here’s a peek at something really new to my home that I haven’t even shared yet – a piano!  This is another Craigslist find!  It was FREE and it’s a player piano!  And, it works!  Of course, I gave it a little facelift with some paint and I’ll be sharing all about it next week!

I have had this vintage Springtime sheet music in my stash for quite a while and the music writing book was my dad’s.

Dining Room & Kitchen

Now, let’s head into the dining room and kitchen area of my home.   I also tried to brighten up this space a bit and changed out the black clock, that was over my range hood, for this wood quilt art that I made last spring.

For a simple table setting I used pages from a vintage song book as placemats.  And, I used more pages to line the ironstone tureen of faux paperwhites.  The adorable bunny napkins are from HomeGoods!  And the glittery music sheet eggs are another DIY that you can find HERE.

In the kitchen, we added a shelf over the kitchen cart and it will be nice to have the extra space to store things.  For now, I added some seasonal spring accessories.

And, here’s the view from my kitchen into the dining room.  If you follow me regularly, I’m sure you notice that I changed out the mirror over the black dresser/buffet.  I love how this round mirror with brass rim ties in with the brass pulls of the buffet.

Doreen, Can you tell us a anything about the beautiful mahogany table that holds your oversized egg? I have one just like it, without the knob. My father used it as a desk for his home practice when he saw clients. Would love to know the history behind yours. Thanks, Lori

Hi, Donna. I actually made them myself. The fabric is almost exactly like these from Pottery Barn -
