Open House Party – Erin at  It’s A Wannabe Decorators Life

by Sherry
Welcome to this weeks Open House Party.
You’ll find the link to join the party at the end of this post but first….
I have a gorgeous home for us to tour this week.  The owners have lovingly remodeled the home to fit their style and I must say their style is a WOW.  Please meet the adorable Erin at
See the old ladder holding the baskets…love it!


You will want to see the before pictures of this pretty bath.  Love the curtain hiding the
open space under the cabinet and the tile floors that look like wood.
2010 Mantle.
  I had to show you the painting Erin’s father painted for her after she showed him a picture
of a similar one she liked.
Thank you Erin for participating in the Open House Party.  You can see more of  this lovely home at

Hi Sherry,
I love Erin's home. I'm crazy over the heavily shabbied cupboard in the eating area. I can't believe that I passed one up at auction last [email protected]

She has great taste.
