Elizabeth’s House ~ Part 2

A few weeks ago I showed you part 1 of Elizabeth’s house.
She’s my daughter and this is her first place.
Here’s part 2.Her only bathroom.
Tiny but new…and there’s a lot to be said for new.
We found the green and gray baskets
at Lowe’s. There were only 2.
We probably could have found a place for 10…

Her kitchen is very efficient.
She loves it…all except the black dishwasher!
(I give her about a year and that dishwasher will be white.)
The little cart came with the house.
I think her green mixer is very fun…way more fun than my black one.
Table and chairs are from IKEA.
Paint is Sherwin Williams Sensible Hue.

I made the valances from fabric purchased at IKEA.
IKEA fabric is sturdy and really easy to work with…and it’s 60 in. wide.
It runs about $8.00 per yard. We were lucky to find a few
different fabrics in her colors.

She had the microwave installed over the stove.
(Blurry pic…not really sure what happened.)

The floors are the same throughout her living areas.
I think it makes everything seem bigger.
This laundry room blows mine out the the water.
I’m actually a little jealous…
She doesn’t have much cupboard space
so this pantry was a life saver.


This room is an add-on at the back of the house right off the kitchen.
Makes a perfect dining room.
Paint color is SW Macadamia.
Her back door.
We got the hooks at Lowe’s.
She hopes to add a bench before winter.
Everything in her house was
planned and thought out before she moved in.
(Wonder who she takes after?)
It was all put together on a small budget
and turned out to be exactly what she wanted.I think most parents would agree
that the thing we want most
for our children is for them to be happy.
I think she’s happy…and that makes me smile.Thanks for stopping by…

    Beautiful daughter and home! My daughter is 22 and has been living in an apartment for a few years now, but she is searching for a house to purchase within the year. I am planning to help her decorate, as well. I can’t wait … it will be fun!

    In regards to the black dishwasher … have you thought about applying peel and stick contact paper in solid white. I’ve seen solid white contact paper at Walmart and it would be an easy and inexpensive short-term solution.

    Love your site!

  2. hi, this is my first time here, and I really enjoyed it! Love the curtain; the whole home is wonderful. Did your daughter ever get a new dishwasher? they make appliance paint, so she could actually paint it to match; I saw my friends’ dad paint her fridge, it turned out great!

  4. Absolutely love love love everything you did. Lucky daughter to have a talented caring mom like you to lend a hand and lucky you for having such a smart daughter getting her first home. A winning combo all the way around. We used Great Green in our lower level stairwell when we finished the lower level a few years ago. Still love it. We went with Leapfrog for the lower level great room (next shade down on the chart) and while I like it, I wish we were have done all of it Great Green. Actually my husband picked out the color since he spends most of his time down there (his office and books and tv are down there–kind of a combo man cave and place for the grandkids to hang out). I was a little hesitant and afraid we'd be tired of it quickly but that hasn't happened! Anyway, great job. Love the green and gray combo!

    Your daughter's cottage is adorable. I love her kitchen best. Can't you get the colored panels to change-out the color of the dishwasher? I think we did that one time before.

  13. Something Nice and Pretty says:

    I love the green that she has added and my fav is the table and chairs from Ikea!
    Having your children happy is one of life's blessing, if mine are happy than I'm happy!
    Tell your daughter she did a fantasic job!

  14. Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow says:

    Ann, Elizabeth's home is WONDERFUL. I love the backsplash in the kitchen along with the way y'all have decorated everything so nicely! You are so very right about our children's happiness being a joy to us. And, I know you must be so proud of a daughter who owns her own home and decorates like a pro. A real blessing in life. Enjoy your Sunday. blessings ~ Tanna

    She sure inherited your flair for decorating. Her place is polished, yet warm.
    My daughter is moving in 2 weeks and I can't wait to help her out with her new home. She will only be 4 hrs away now, instead of 2 days. I'm thrilled!!

  16. Jann Olson says:

    Very sweet! Love the lime green. It looks so clean and fresh. Her white milk glass collection is wonderful also. Thanks for sharing.

    I can feel it!

  19. Jan@southernjunkin' says:

    Lovely home! And so special that you were able to help her with so much! Yes, all we want is for our children to be happy!

  20. I love the house! Such nice decorating. It's wonderful to have things nice and organized. She can add things over time (artwork or whatever) but a fantastic start!

  21. Oh, this looks so welcoming and cozy. Love those paint colours and have to admit I didn't even notice the black dishwasher, lol.

  22. You have every right to be proud. Your daughter has made a very cosy place – so fresh and bright and good-looking. She's a smart gal!

  23. Kim @ Savvy Southern Style says:
