The Blogger Spotlight: At Home with the Barkers



The Blogger Spotlight At Home with the Barkers


Hey friends! I’m super excited Julie asked me to guest post on the blog for her today! It’s a big deal to let someone else take over your little blog space and I am grateful for the opportunity. I hear the Redhead can Decorate readers ROCK!

If we’ve never met in the virtual world, I’m Sonya from At Home with The Barkers. My passion for blogging is to inspire others to create a home and life they love. I paint, build, decorate, sew and sometimes cook but I can’t do it alone. I’m blessed with a fantastic handy husband who “helps” me all the time! Ok, he doesn’t paint or sew but he sure can work some power tools! I share all about it in tutorials, how to’s and just good conversation with my readers. I would be thrilled to have you over to my little blog space anytime!


For this post today I thought sharing a few of our recent projects would give you a good idea of what you could expect anytime you visit At Home with The Barkers.

Most recently around our house was a kitchen makeover! I know Julie has those beautiful black cabinets so I thought this would be a perfect share. I went two toned and painted mine soft gray on top and black on the bottom. Once you stop by the blog to see the entire kitchen you will also see our gorgeous plank walls!

I like to change my mantel decor a little each season. My recent mantel took on a vintage vibe with things I already had around the house. The best way to decorate…FREE.

Vintage Twist Spring Mantel Tour

I did a spring home tour as well and funny thing about most of the pictures in that tour…I’ve already made several changes to the decor. Including the pink coffee table! The scandanavian pink looks really great on the bedroom night stands but I did not love it in the living room. I lived with it for a few months then painted over it last week. I’ll be sharing about those on the blog soon.

New Rug for the Family Room

Our recent beverage bar addition that we created from a closet under the stairs has to be one of my top DIY projects we have completed. It’s always great to think outside of the box with the space in your home.

Thanks again Julie for allowing me to share on your blog today! I also love posting lots of behind the scenes and life on my Instagram! I’d love to have you follow along there.

When you visit At Home with The Barkers be sure to tell me you came over from Redhead can Decorate! I’d love to say HEY!
