It was a beautiful, sunny day when I stopped by the Bachman’s Summer Ideas House this past week…finally. Since the weather has warmed up the house tour includes a back yard filled with flowers, plantings, gnomes, al fresco dining, and more. There’s a party going on in the garage and the shed has been converted into an outdoor reading and writing nook.
It’s always great fun to see how the creative geniuses at Bachman’s will mix and match vintage and new, repurpose household items, and always ending up with a unique design feature or one-of-a-kind item. I’ll post additional photos on the Hirshfield’s Facebook page for your viewing pleasure.
The Summer Idea’s House is open until Sunday, June 12, 2011(closed on Mondays). Remember all items in the house are for sale. If you can’t make up your mind about an item or you feel it is out of your budget, Bachman’s is having a yard sale on June 24 and 25, 2011. Mark your calendar.
