RED RED she SAID! (part #1)

You all know by now that I like seeing how everyday people use Vintage items in their homes, so when I was out recently I asked my friend Stacy to "show off" her home to me! So, sit back and see how creative she is and how her LOVE of red and all things PLAID gets an honored place in her home!
 First up is her wonderful and large entry way...She has the entryway we all want! Wide wooden floors, tall ceilings and LOTS of places to show off her treasures.... She has an eye for display too, so look closely to take it all in....
 It makes you want to stand and stare awhile to see all her fun collections...
 Her is a painting inherited from grandma!
 I love all her Plaid items...and they look great all together!
Now I thought this was really creative, she bought these iron pieces from the barn, sprayed them black and used them as decorative railing at the end of the entry way!
Next up, is her happy and cheerful kitchen! She had just built this work station, ( yes, She's very handy too!) out of a folding shutter door and door parts. The bottom shutter she can pull up and use for extra serving space when she is entertaining also. The next picture shows the door up! And check out all her storage!
 Love those black letters from the barn...I've had fun seeing how alot of you are using those lately too!
 And of course, more room on top for more small treasures...
 She also likes cherries, sweet!
 If you have "liked" us on FB, you have seen these cute shelves before...These were parts of enamel table sides that you would pull out to extend your table. She added brackets and mounted as shelves on the wall!

 I know, you all want to shop on those shelves right?
Every space is used and well organized!
 Even her pantry and laundry room where cute!

Plaid appears again in the bath,
along with this vintage carrom board!

Okay, that is only the first 4 rooms, wait til you see the rest!
Thanks for all the inspiration Stacy!
