Our Guest Host this week is Marty from A Stroll Through Life.
Hello, I am so thrilled to be the guest host this week at The Scoop. Getting to party with Samantha, Anita, Kelli, Kristi and Lindsey is pretty impressive company and such a thrill. My name is Marty from A Stroll Thru Life. If you follow my blog, you know that after retiring and downsizing I am on a mission to turn my builder basic house into a warm and welcoming home with DIY, thrifting, sewing, painting and crafting.
My style is basically traditional with just a touch of country, French, second hand redos and goodwill/thrift store finds. I am forever changing things and a neutral background allows me to get a totally different look by simply swapping out pillows and accessories. You can see some of my many changes here.
The family room has gone through many decorating changes also. Learning to downsize furniture and accessories to fit the room is still an ongoing lesson. To see the entire evolution click here.
The master bedroom recently got a complete makeover. It started with this headboard I found at a thrift shop for $75. The fabric was wonderful, but the wood had to change.
A little paint and distressing turned it into the focal point I needed for the room. A thrift shop dresser and goodwill nightstand that I refinished, completed the makeover. You can see all the before's and after here.
Thanks for joining us Marty!!
