This home is a DIYers dream and shows you that with a lot of creativity and a little elbow grease, anyone can have their dream home. Welcome to the Eclectic Home Tour of Sincerely Sara D.
“I love decorating with pops of color and am drawn to more feminine decor. I consider myself traditional but with some modern touches. I love watching period pieces on TV – I’m inspired by their decor (Poldark, Downtown Abbey)”, says Sara.
Sara of Sincerely Sara D is no stranger to do it yourself projects in her Indiana home. She even tackled her kitchen renovation and she and her husband did almost all of the work themselves including hanging the cabinets and installing the tile backsplash.
Sara kept her old range hood and worked her magic on it. Can you believe it’s painted to look like real wood!
More DIY’s include shiplap walls and these gorgeous white and brass (she used spray paint to achieve the look on a budget) open shelves.
This reminds me a French bistro.
Moulding was added to the walls flanking the fireplace to add architectural interest and painted a deep blue.
A gallery wall of family photos fills a wall and adds a personal touch.
The dining room gets some farmhouse flare with a rustic wood table and updated Windsor chairs painted black.
Books! This bookcase comes complete with rolling library ladder.
Even the mudroom has personality.
An antique mail sorter gets new life as shoe storage.
With a laundry room like this, I suddenly don’t mind the idea of folding laundry. Can you believe the floors are tile that’s been stenciled!
I love the swing arm sconces above the bed.
A freestanding tub in the master bath adds a vintage feel.
Take a peek into the guest bedroom …
boys bedroom …
and colorful little girls room.
A backyard oasis complete with picture perfect hydrangeas and a covered porch complete the house.
As if her own house isn’t beautiful enough, Sara designed this dining room for a local house show!
