Y’all, I’ve never seen a more bright, happy, and colorful house than Krista’s!

Hello readers of Rain on a Tin Roof!

I’m Krista from The Happy Housie and I am so excited to be here today at this amazing blog of Jenna’s. I have been following Rain on a Tin Roof since I started blogging and just love Jenna’s vintage modern style and quick wit. I’m honoured to be guest posting here!

Today I am sharing a little ol’ DIY Project that I did for our son’s nautical style bathroom: a DIY Arrow Striped & Distressed Stool.DIY Arrow Striped Stool Revamp label at The Happy Housie

The Wood Grain Cottage Home Tour

Hi there! I’m Shayna from The Wood Grain Cottage and I’m so happy to be here while Jenna is spending some relaxing time away with her hubby! Lucky duck!

Today I thought I’d share a couple of my favorite rooms. My husband and I have been busy adding character and cottage/ farmhouse-y style to our newly built home one room at time. In the mean time, we’re enjoying the progress!

Our kitchen is easily one of my very favorite rooms…

A Coastal Massachusetts Home Tour

I am taking vacation this week, y’all. Grunt Labor is on spring break, so I’m claiming this week as my spring break as well. I’ve lined up some fabulous gals to introduce you to this week, though.
One of my bucket list trips is to visit the north eastern seaboard one day. Jen from Migonis Home calls it home already. You guys are going to love her home….
I am Jen Migonis from Migonis Home blog and am thrilled to be posting over here while Jenna enjoys a vaca with her main man… My husband and I bought a house in Manchester-by-the-Sea, MA about four years ago. We loved the location and the bones of the house but what we weren’t too wild about was how non-functional it was. There was no insulation throughout the house (big problem when you live in New England and there are an unfortunate amount of sub freezing days six months of the year) and the original windows were letting in major drafts. And that’s not even talking about the cosmetic stuff. Pop on over to see my house tour with the before photos.
Let’s start on the outside. Promise you won’t write me off after seeing how much work needs to happen out here? Please remember we are just finishing up about six months of winter. In January we put a new front porch on our house and because it’s been ridculously cold we haven’t been able to repaint except for tester areas of a new paint color. I bet our neighbors love us. :)

DIY Decorative Storage Containers {Trash to Treasure}

*Don’t miss out on some virtual flea market shopping! Visit the Flea Market blog hop here!*

The Trash to Treasure gals are back today for another fun installment! From now on, we are going to be doing Trash to Treasure on the second Friday of every month, instead of the first.

You may have seen these decorative storage containers peeking around the corner of one of the blue chests in the newly made over guest bedroom and office.

Ranch Style House Tour {Spring Parade of Homes}

*Don’t miss out on some virtual flea market shopping! Visit the Flea Market blog hop here!*

There have been a lot of changes around here lately.

Like a lot.

A guest bedroom and office makeover, a mini-master bedroom makeover, and lots of little projects in between all that.

Needless to say, this gal is exhausted and a vacation can’t come soon enough.

I was asked to be a part of the Spring Parade of Homes and thought that this would be the perfect time to update my full home tour, seeing as how so many things have changed. The last full home tour I did was last summer. You can see it here.

If you are popping over from May Richer Fuller Be, or another blog in the parade, welcome! And if its your first time here, prepare yourself for snarky comments, witty jokes that may not seem so witty to you, and many references to cheap beer and possibly 80′s hair bands.

Just wanted to give you the full disclosure before you begin the tour.

Our home is a 1969 Ranch Style House and we love it.

Stenciled Leopard Skin Accent Wall {Welcome to the Jungle.}

I hope you just started singing Guns ‘N Roses Welcome to the Jungle after reading that title.

You’re welcome.

As I told you when I revealed the guest bedroom and office makeover on Monday, this space is a 100% selfish act.

When I started plotting this makeover, yes, I wanted guests to enjoy the room, but it was going to contain my workspace as well. And I would be the one spending the most time in here. So, come Hades or high water, this space would be whatever my little heart desired.

And it is.

When I showed you the guest bedding a few weeks back, I hinted that the back wall would be getting a serious treatment, so the bedding didn’t need to be too patterned.

That back wall did get a serious treatment – a serious leopard skin accent wall treatment.
