<< Front Yard >>
All that was added that has a visual impact on the exterior is add plantation shutters inside (sadly only on the front windows - boy were they pricey!) and paint the front door. I planted a few flowers, but they're dying. :(
<< Office >>
So, those are pretty much the befores. We added the plantation shutters...that one dog likes to open - with his teeth! :(
Making some progress! I found us some cute matching computer desks, painted and stenciled the walls, revamped some vintage computer chairs, painted a pair of lamps, created a seating area, and DIY'ed a super cute entry table!
<< Powder Room >>
The before photos are really bad...but they're not supposed to be good, right??
I painted the bathroom the same blue as the kitchen, swapped out the builder's plain mirror, and added some accessories - including that DIY chevron paint stick wall art.
<< Kitchen and Dining Nook >>
The real "before" kitchen was just the same neutral color as in all the other "before" photos. I didn't really have a plan, but I always wanted a red kitchen; so, I painted it red.
I scored a new table and chairs off of Craigslist. However, my hubby hated the table...so the 2nd new to us table is shown in the photographs! I got a screaming deal on a new chandelier! It's substantial, transitional, and just a little bit of bling. Perfect. The latest update is the addition of some lovely IKEA curtains! I'm finally starting to feel like the downstairs is coming together in a way I truly enjoy!
<< Living Room >>
Here's makeover stage one:
Check out how I made that cute teal and white table here!
Makeover stage 2:
Makeover stage 2:
The main change from the original makeover is that giant sectional! Hubby wants what he wants. In this case it was an awesome choice. Because of the huge couch we had to completely change the direction the room, sounds easy enough....but we had to have the surround sound totally rewired and the television remounted. So, it wasn't very easy on the pocket book. I updated a navy blue side table and a coral and white nightstand that are currently on display in the living room. I most recently added some curtains from IKEA!
<< Stairway and Hall >>
I stenciled the laundry room doors; so they serve as an art piece in themselves! Then I painted all the trim in the hallway, including the railing. I also, finally completed my thrifted frame gallery wall!
<< Laundry Closet >>
I have big plans for this little closet! So far, my sloppiness has not been an improvement! I'm so glad I can just shut those doors and it's "clean"!!! ;)
So far all I have done is paint and stencil the doors, but there's lots more I'd like to do in there!
<< Upstairs Hall Bathroom >>
I'm so in love with this bathroom! You can read all about the guest bathroom reveal here. Really the only change is paint and accessories. I am hoping for a new counter top one day.
<< Ethan's Bedroom >>
Progress on his Second redesign!
So far, we have only painted the walls Seahawks colors and swapped some furniture...with my furniture love affair there's almost always different furniture from the photos!!! Most recently I DIY'd a no sew skirt for a bed without a box spring. There's more to come!
<< Nursery >>
The first thing I did was look for inspiration. Then I started crocheting the easiest chevron baby blanket I could find. It was time consuming, but after some trial and error it was so easy!! I painted a crib that my hubby got for really cheap. Then TEN months later I finally completed her custom headboard that broke the internet!!! I scored a fabulous French provincial dresser at Goodwill and painted it coral and gold. Another thrifty find is the antique dresser that I painted white and gold. Then I decided to completely switch which room was her nursery and painted that room with a mint green ceiling! I DIY'd an ombre mobile that I had been drooling over since I first saw it! I love how the mobile and blanket bring all the colors together! I added more color unity with a thrifted gold frame gallery wall above her dresser!
<< Guest Room >>
This is actually a before of the 'other' guest room, which is now the nursery. ha They all started empty and beige. You get the idea. ;)
<< Master Bedroom >>
Far from finished, but here's the current state after a DIY love clock, a mini refresher with some accessories, bedding, and furniture theft from other rooms, and an updated vintage cradle for our sweet Reagan! I'd say it's 100% better by comparison!
Thanks for touring our home! Y'all come back now, ya hear!? ;)
