She has been busy doing a spectacular double wide manufactured home makeover with her knowledge and talent of crafting, updating and decorating. Her remodels, updates and decorating talents will surely inspire you. Magazine Your Home is a wealth of great topics from crafts to home updating ideas and much, much more. This is a blog that you can really learn from because her how-to posts are all simple and easy to follow.

Her photos can certainly speak for themselves and tomorrow we will be posting the interview, you will want to come back for sure!

The fireplaces in standard mobile homes leave a bit to be desired. 

They are usually bland and dull. Here is Teresa’s wonderful fix for this problem.
 Before:

Read about all the steps she took to turn dull into delicious on her Redoing a Fireplace Mantel post.

A mobile home usually has sub-standard cabinetry through out the home, especially in the kitchen. 

Teresa turned her cabinets and essentially her whole kitchen into a comfy and stylish room.

See how she accomplished this remarkable make over on her Kitchen Transformation post.

Mobile home laundry rooms are usually an afterthought for the

architectures and homeowners alike.

It’s certainly not an afterthought in Teresa’s home!

 
After:

See how she pulled this off on her Laundry Room Reveal post.We all know the issues that basic mobile home bathrooms pose.They basically lac

any kind of style.Teresa has updated the guest bathroom to make any guest feel right at home.

 

 See how she did this on her Guest Bathroom Reveal post.In her blog, Teresa is a crafting machine! She has many projects that are especially relevant to mobile homes, such as how to turn standard ceiling fans into a more modern nickel finished fan using spray paint and a few small purchases. She also refurbishes furniture, sews, and can even recover lamp shades (one of the hardest things I have ever tried to do). Here’s some of my favorite craft projects she has done:See what I mean about talent? She also has an Etsy shop, Teaberry’s Treasures, where she sells a few of her most popular handmade crafts.I love it when I can share mobile and manufactured homeowners that  turn their homes into comfortable spaces. When homeowners allow us a peek into their homes, they not only inspire but they make it easy to see what is possible. I certainly appreciate Teresa opening up her home to us. By all means, go to Magazine Your Home and see all the other great projects she has done. Her Christmas decor was a true spirit lifter and her sewing and craft projects are written in easy to follow steps that anyone can follow. Teresa will be answering our Mobile Home Living Questionnaire on tomorrows post and you won’t want to miss her responses. They are very open and honest which always makes for a great read.

As always, thank you so much for reading Mobile Home Living.

    Hi Johan! I've seen a few mud & straw houses here in WV, they are actually pretty popular here! I think the manufactured home industry is going to figure out how to get the best of both worlds: movable and earth friendlier- built with renewable materials. Thanks so much for commenting!

    Hi Charlotte! Lamps are a great accessory to a kitchen! Just don't do
    like I did and buy those new bulbs that say \”cool\” on them. They
    produce the ugliest, whitest light. I have since learned to only buy
    the ones that are 'warm' because they look more like the good ole
    fashioned light bulbs…lesson learned..lol Thanks so much for
    commenting!

    I love lamps in the kitchen as an alternative to replacing the overhead lighting. You get the light and the warmth in one unit.
