Just a Touch of Gray House Tour Guest Post

Touch of Gray

I would like to introduce you to Rachel from Just a Touch of Gray. I'm very excited to have her here as my guest. Please make sure you visit her blog for her before and after posts. You will love her beautiful inspiring home!

Hi all! I'm Rachel Gray from Just a Touch of Gray, and I'm excited to be here at South Shore Mommy today! Darline has asked me to share a tour of my home but first I want to give you a little background. 

In the summer of 2010 my husband and I bought a 1960 ranch from its original owners. Yes, that's right, we're the second owners! You can probably imagine it's "original" state. To say this house needed a little help would be an understatement. So, as my tag line reads, we've been dedicated to fix things up "one room at a time". 

Now on to the fun part - the pictures! 

This is our living room....

The {before} of this room was brown, brown, and more brown. Now it feels like a breath of fresh air.

Just behind the couch is our dining room...

We used the same {whitewash treatment} used in the living room area and my husband actually built the dining room table from wood we tore out of the house. 

After you make your way down our hallway... 

You'll find our master bedroom... 

Our goal was to have a neutral, relaxing place to end our nights and start our mornings. 

And if you enter a little hallway between our closets...

You'll find out newly revamped master bathroom...


And the final "after" room on your tour today is our guest room... 

I hope you enjoyed our tour! I invite you to come visit me over at {Just a Touch of Gray}!

Thanks for having me, Darline!
