Eclectic Home Tour – Barn in the German Countryside


The Poor Sophisticate Barn Tour featured at

Molly of The Poor Sophisticate lives in the gorgeous German countryside.

This is her village.

Charming German village

Her hubby reenlisted in the military just so they could live abroad and they seem to be living the good life in their renovated barn.

Molly created a pallet bar to hide an ugly eyesore – a genius solution!

Make a zebra hide rug on the cheap!

She also made that zebra hide rug from a drop cloth!

Beautiful dresser and bottle holder

Need a fun wall treatment – that won’t damage walls and is easily removed?  How about a book page wall.

Ceiling medallion collection - instant art!

Love these DIY ombre curtains.

Into the kitchen for some bratwurst & beer.

Beautiful kitchen with exposed beams

Gorgeous barn kitchen - love the beams

I love Chuck – he went from slightly scary faux deer head to a more jazzed up (non-scary) version!

Make a faux deer head!
I knew I really liked Molly when I read that she likes reading graffiti on public bathroom walls!

So she made her own graffiti wall (and made her own chalk paint too)!

Fun graffiti wall - and make your own chalk paint

You really have to see the before pics to appreciate all the work Molly did to make this a warm and cozy home.

Now I want to pack up and move to a charming little German village with neighbors like this!

Sigh … for now, I’ll have to live vicariously through Molly of The Poor Sophisticate.

I’m suddenly in the mood to watch European Vacation while eating a giant soft pretzel.
