It’s another great Friday and that means it is time for Field Trip Friday with Leslie from House On The Way. You will enjoy her talent, creativity, home decor and much more. Take it away Leslie…
Don’t you just love field trips?
When Meegan asked me to take part in her Field Trip Friday, I thought “Yay…a field trip I don’t have to chaperone!”
I’m Leslie and I blog at House on the Way, a home decor & design blog focused on making sure our house is on the way to a beautiful home.
I thought I’d tell you a bit about myself, my blog and a few of my favorite posts and projects.
First, you should know…my favorite color is red. I love it. It makes me happy and it makes me smile.You’ll find either a little or a lot throughout my home.
I would describe my style as eclectic. I love to mix the old with new. My love of antiques and vintage finds allows me to layer my home, creating a look that tells a story…the story of our life. As I walk through my home, I can find pieces that I’ve found at local flea markets as well as our travels overseas. Each piece is special in its own way.
I also have four children, which also means my home is always bustling. When my daughter graduated from high school, I created some DIY Photo Collage Letters for her graduation party. They turned out to be my most popular post ever. They make great party decor, but can also be a beautiful keepsake. I used the letters that spell her name and covered each letter with photos of her with family and friends. The photo collage letters took the place of the traditional photo board at the party.
Personally, one of my favorite projects is my Wood Swan Sign. I found a photo in a magazine of a set of beautiful swan signs and carried it around for at least a year. Finally, I created my version and it has become one of my favorite decorative pieces in my home.
When it comes to DIYs, I love to create fabric covered headboards. My most recent is my Pottery Barn inspired Fabric Covered Tufted Headboard for my master bedroom. My version is about $800 less than theirs!
Currently, I’m working on a powder room makeover. I’ve been stripping wallpaper, stenciling and adding a wood wall treatment. I can’t wait to show you more. As soon as it’s finished, I’ll be sure to share!
In the meantime, here’s a little of my new fall decor…
