Renaissance Mermaid Happy Home Tour
This week’s Happy Home Tour has us at home with Julie Reinwald who blogs on Renaissance Mermaid. Isn’t that one of the most wonderful blog names you’ve ever seen? I happen to love anything mermaid and even have a pinterest board about them. Her tagline, “redesigning a home and a life” fits her perfectly.
Julie has loads of DIY projects and home design ideas on Renaissance Mermaid. Her style is on the elegant side with a touch of fun along with some really unique pieces. Julie finds a lot of treasures at yard sales and then makes them over to match her home decor.
I don’t remember exactly how I found Julie on Renaissance Mermaid, but I am so glad I did. I am on the hunt for dining room drapes so it may have had something to do with her dining room curtain before and after post that is an amazing transformation.
Renaissance Mermaid Before and After Front Door
while the cat was out to play. In this case the cat was the husband, Julie had painted the front door an emerald-green and then decided it needed to be this nice olive-green color. Husband never “said a word” and either he did not notice or has the wisdom not to make a comment. Ha! This is so endearing as husbands are like that aren’t they.
RENAISSANCE MERMAID HEARTH ROOM
I just got a bird nest yesterday and want to clone this idea..See more about this setting on A Little Touch of Spring.
Like I said she hunts down treasures at flea markets, garage sales and tag sales. The bathroom mirrors had a plaque in-between them. A bigger one found on a treasure hunt looks so much better than the smaller plaque.
SUNROOM BEFORE AND AFTER MAKEOVER
The coffee table in the sunroom is an old door painted black DIY project. Clever how Julie attached plain stock legs purchased at Lowe’s and painted them black. Then the doorknob and table legs ends got a touch of glam gilded in gold.
By now I know you’re probably thinking…but does Renaissance Mermaid have a mermaid?
I hope you enjoyed today’s Happy Home Tour as much as I did.
Thank you so much for visiting my blog.
