Updating 1970s ranch house
To see some of the before and after photos, you can go here.For the vanity, we used our old dining room buffet. A vintage ladder gets used for towel storage in here. And the texture of the old gray wood on the ladder somehow softens the feel of all the hard finishes in the bathroom. Today, I am sharing our 1960’s ranch style home tour. I’ve admired and followed her blog for years and am so honored to be sharing my home with her and you.Thanks so much for having my home on your tour, Debbie! My name is Angie and I blog at Postcards from the Ridge.This is my favorite area to decorate because it’s the first thing I see when I come home, and also because it’s the easiest and quickest to change.Anything that takes very little time and makes me happy has got to be a good thing.
I still don’t love them, but they’ve grown on me and I don’t dislike them enough to paint them.I like various decorating themes like farmhouse, vintage, mid-century modern, and some traditional.And I love to use items for something other than their intended use.Just the windows, fireplace, and some comfy, casual furniture. Another one of my favorite finds is the section of vintage iron gate that’s propped up behind the lanterns in the photo above.The sofa got a makeover last year with a simple dropcloth slipcover. I bought it from a local antique shop a couple of years ago and had no idea what I would do with it at the time, but knew that I had to have it.
The dresser is one that I painted and distressed earlier this year.
