Spring House Tour 2019 -Lower Level
I needed to write this post today. For you of course, but also for me. I needed to focus on something other than my current family matters for just a little while. Not to bring anyone down, but to ask for your positive thoughts and prayers for my family.

My mother is currently hospitalized with pneumonia for the fourth time in 6 months and while there, x-rays are showing a mass on one of her lungs. My mom is a frail eighty-five pound who is also eighty-four years old. So while we wait for the pneumonia to be treated, I am praying the mass will go away as well. She is simply too frail for an invasive treatment.
So now you know why I needed to share with you guys today. I needed to get my mind clear and settled before making some really heavy decisions.
Today I am sharing my spring house tour. I am going to take you through the entry, living, dining rooms and my kitchen.
On with the reason for this post. 😉 If you follow me on Instagram or my YouTube channel you have seen little teasers of my spring look. I am curious to see if you notice any of the DIYs or shopping haul items I’ve shared over the past couple of months on my YouTube channel and my Instagram. I will point some of them out, but if you see anything you have questions about, please leave your questions in the comments section.
Let’s begin with my entryway. If you have followed for a while you will notice how much brighter the entryway looks. That is because we had the entire house painted. Well, all except two rooms. One I love the way it is, my tiny powder room and the other on the list for the next project, my kitchen. Otherwise, the entire house has had a paint facelift. 🙂
This is the wreath on the outside of the front door. I bought the grapevine wreath but I personalized it by adding the yellow flowers and the black and white bow.
Grove Collaborative/Mrs. Meyers Cleaning Products
This is the flower basket on the inside of my front door in the entryway. Flowers from #Dollar Tree, Tin Basket from #hobbylobby, the black and white ribbon from #Amazon.
My entryway table is an upcycle. It has had several paint colors over the years. All four candelabras are upcycles/DIYs. The two on the end I put together using light covers from an old light fixture and two old candelabras. I spray painted the candle holders as well. The white ones were black and I painted them white. The glass vase in the middle has twinkle lights in the base and lights up at night. The flowers are from #DollarTree
The dining room is all decked out for spring. I switched out the curtains and pillows and added spring flowers as well. The centerpiece is filled with a battery operated candle on a timer and speckled eggs. There are several other angles and to see the tour in its entirety, visit my YouTube channel for the full tour.
See the kitchen, powder room and all angles of the space check in the video below. Happy Spring!

Hugs & Blessings,
I love the yellow with black and white – classy my friend! My prayers are with your mom and you.
You are the sweetest Carol. Thank you so much. I am happy you enjoyed the tour and thank you so much for the prayers.
Best wishes for your mother. Everything looks nice and cheery especially with all of the yellow.
I am loving how you tied in the bright yellow in your home. What a great color to add some POP to a room! And I do hope things look up for your mom and I am sending you prayers.
Awww thank you Dee. Things don’t look good, but I am trying to keep myself and most importantly her, in a positive state of mind.
Hi Alice and thank you. All prayers are welcome and appreciated. Yellow is my go-to color for spring and summer. I have used it for at least the last 4 years. Not ready to change yet. 🙂 Again, thank you for stopping by.
