More From the 2012 Bachman's Holiday Ideas House...Part 2...

Well, I am back from the three-day Holiday Happening event we were in this weekend (we had lots of fun and I'll share more later!) and am ready for part two from the Bachman's  2012 Holiday Ideas House!   Thank you for all of your sweet comments about part one...makes it so fun to do the posts knowing you enjoy them!  Remember, you can visit the previous Ideas House posts using the link under my header photo!

This time we'll start with the wonderful kitchen!  I'd love to do some cookie baking here!

Wouldn't you love to find an old metal sign like this?

The lower level bathroom continues the feeling with a shuttered mirror...

and cheery linens...

On to the upper level of the house!  The stairway featured fun salvaged wood snowflakes!

First stop...the bathroom with sheet music covered walls...

A tool tote is hung on the wall as an organizer shelf...

and don't forget the laundry chute!

Next up...the cozy den!  I could sit right down...

I LOVE the wall mounted TV cabinet made of salvaged wood and an old photo enlarged for the cover!  What a decorative way to hide the big screen...

great ways to use old snowshoes...

So many great ideas!  Next time we'll visit the bedrooms!

I am joining Debra at the Marketplace at Common Ground

Until next time...


  1. I love these Bachman's tours Linda. Loads of inspiration.

  2. OH ,the snowflakes are great, and both kitchen and den ,-looks so very cosy and warm- a real treat to eat and cosy up there.
    Thankyou Linda, for inviting me inside the Bachmann`s cosynes ,this snowy and cold evening in Denmark.

    I like the light in the kitchen, with the wooden forks and t-towels!!Very inventive.

  20. I want that kitchen! All that red & white goodness in the room has me swooning! And that metal sign? I've been kicking myself for years for passing up one just like that in a local antique store. It was there for years, but when I finally decided to buy it ($38) it was GONE!

    Thanks for sharing, Linda.
