Don’t you just love a good house tour? I know I do. If you are visiting from Mandi’s place thanks for stopping by! That Vintage Revivals has such an amazing mod-aesthetic. She’s a trend setter and true genius. Love her! I’m honored you popped in to see my humble abode. When Gina from The Shabby Creek Cottage asked me back in the winter if I would like to be part of a summer home tour, I was hoping by now I would have a myriad of new projects and pictures to show off. No such luck. However, right now my house is completely torn apart because we are in the midst of some major changes so consider some of these pictures “before” pictures. Isn’t that always how it is? Nothing is ever quite “done” in DIY land! I’m going to be very few in words from here on out so just enjoy the tour!
The exterior of our home and front porch will be getting a new look this summer with some more neutral-toned paints. But for right now, we enjoy our spacious Christmas-colored front porch in all seasons.
Our entryway is a teeny-tiny space that looks so much better with a litte stencil help.
Our dining room is rarely used, so I’m trying to re-think this space. For now it’s a pretty spot to shoot tablescapes.
The first floor is an open concept floor plan which has it’s perks and disadvantages. Our leather couches get a summery look with slip covers which are easy to bleach when needed. The living room needs some reorganizing which I hope to do late summer!
I always love a good mantel and you can see a ton of mantels here.
We redecorated the half-bath last year and it’s one of my favorite makeovers to date. You should click-through to see the befores and afters.
Our breakfast nook is where we eat most of our meals. I would love to add a banquette. It’s on the never-ending “to-do” list ;).
The room in the house that feels the most like “me” is hands-down the kitchen. This space took forever to transform! From our DIY pebble stone backsplash, to painting the cabinets, adding a screen door, changing the lighting, and putting up beams it was a lot of work but so worth it!
Our backyard is the size of a postage stamp so we try to add a lot of color to cheer up the space. Last summer, I gave our back porch a much-needed makeover. You can read all about it here.
This DIY Bird Bath Garden Planter has been both a blessing and a curse for my blog. A blessing because it received a LOT of attention, and a curse because my pictures were all stolen, compiled into one long infograph, and reposted by several sites with no link back to me. It’s been pinned 100’s of thousands of times sourcing the stolen Asian site :(. It comes with the territory of blogging and happens to all of us, but I’d love you forever if you would give my little planter some pin-love back to the original source (me). 🙂
A few months ago, I spruced up our fence with some pot holders made from pipe hangers.
And just a month ago, I transformed an old rocking chair into a cute planter.
The boys’ bedroom was a stretch outside of my traditional-decor box. They had requested a myriad of things they wanted in their room and I was proud to combine all of their diverse interests into one cool room!
With the help of some custom plans by my girl Ana White, I created some A to Z bookshelves for Asher and Zephan.
We inherited two dressers from Matt’s grandparents and I have them some two-toned love. You can see the tutorial on how I transformed the dressers here.
My craft room almost feels ready for another makeover but it will need to wait until all of the other rooms are done!
Our master bedroom received a makeover this year and is undergoing another one as I type this! Yes, I change my mind quickly. I’m excited to show you the new and improved master once it is done.
Our roof deck is TOP PRIORITY this summer and I am super duper excited to start making it over! It’s going to be amazing when all finished—hopefully by July.
Thanks for visiting me! Next stop on your tour is Ashley from The Handmade Home. It’s a crowd pleaser for sure, so click through and enjoy.
