Home Tour by {RE}Cycled

Hey everyone!!  Meet Amanda from {RE}Cycled!  It was really super sweet of her to give us a tour of her home, so be extra generous with the comment love, and pop over and check out her site!!

Hi, I'm visiting from

My name is Amanda and I own {RE}Cycled consign and design. I often get asked what my house looks like so today you get an exclusive tour. 

I think the entry of a home should speak of the people that live there, and I love what ours says! I found this ceiling medallion at a garage sell for $5.00, a little mocha spray paint and gold leafing and it was perfect. My amazing husband made me this shelf and bench for my birthday. My Mom made the cushion. They were the best presents ever!!!



My living room has taken its time evolving, great rooms don't just happen they need time! but its almost there. I got the cream Zgallery couch in a classified add for $300, it was a steal! The art is a vintage wall paper I found at a thrift store and had it mounted and framed. It has gold leafing and a flock damask print, really beautiful.


My most favorite room in the house is my Master Bedroom, I think it is the perfect mix of feminine and masculine touches. I love monogrammed sheets, so I just bought a set of target sheets and had them monogrammed for $12.00. The art above the bed is made from a branch I sprayed cream and added crystals from a leftover chandelier and tiny mirrors. It reflects candle light so nicely, and only cost $4.00 to make. Again my hubby framed it out with leftover moldings. The big splurge for the room was the wallpaper. I adore wallpaper and just had to find a place for this one. It's grey with silvery peacock scrolls all over. It makes the room.

My kitchen gets a lot of use so I wanted it to be bold. The color on the wall is called Burnt Carmel by Kwall Paint, it's a very rich orange. Right off the Kitchen is my Dinning Room, I striped the walls in here with a metallic brown paint. The drapes were a upholstery fabric I
 bought for $2.00 a yard!

Now for the best hangout spot in the house......our Family Room. This room took a lot of planning, my favorite feature is the red wall. I saw these 18x18 inch bamboo wall panels at inhabit living and knew they were the inspiration. Make sure to read the directions on how to install them we had to do it twice. ( Men think they are always right). The ottoman was made by my hubby again :) gotta love him! And I found this rug at Home Fabrics for only $100, what a steal. I still have a few things I want to add to the space but it just feels good.

This room is my daughters, we worked on it together. Who knew a 7 year old could be so opinionated! I guess she takes after ME :) We still a few things to do the her yellow wall but there are never enough hours in the day. Her dressers and bed are mine from my childhood. And the art work on the wall is mostly vinyl and a few random objects. The silhouette's are my grandmothers, mother, and her. Kinda just a fun little family memory. I sewed the pillows and bought the duvet from potterybarn. The little chair I found at a garage sell and recovered it in fabric from another project, it cost only $5.00.

If you are ever in Southern Utah I always have room in our cozy guest room! I just added this vinyl graphic and some comfy bedding. It's amazing how the furniture you had when you got married can look so much more chic if you don't have to sleep on it every night :) 

Most of the accessories I have in my house have come from unique boutiques and consignment shops. I love to hunt for the unexpected. So now that you have seen how I live I hope you will stop by our boutique or blog for more great ideas. Thanks for stopping by.

Thanks so much for the tour Amanda! You have a beautiful home!! Head on over to her site to check out more of her ideas!!!
