Adding Character to Your Home
I have a multi step post coming up showing how we are adding vintage character in our Master Bedroom. Before doing so, I really wanted to touch on how adding character can be so easy…and how so many bloggers are doing it!
There is no doubt that I am all about the character! I am constantly trying to think of ways to create texture or “vintage” looks in our 1980’s home. Buying a home pre 1970’s you have such great architure surprises as well as good quality design. There is nothing like beautiful wood beams, reclaimed brick chimneys, planked walls, rich moldings, and beautifully framed windows.
There are plenty of other DIY bloggers out there that have been finding ways to add this on their own and on a budget, and I thought it would be a great way to display all of these in one spot. I gathered some of the best DIY’s pinned them and now adding them here.
Kristine from the Painted Hive shows how to adding character with this beautiful custom trim to a doorway. Such a dramatic difference!
Amy from Eat Sleep Decorate has an absolutely stunning house. She shows how she added character to her new/blank slate home.
This may be the best tutorial DIY I came across! Wow unbelieveable… Jenna Sue shows how she creates these beauties from Pine boards.
