One summer we upgraded our front door and painted it yellow for a more welcoming first impression.

Inside, the foyer has had a few updates with a new rug and the ‘inspiration wall’.

Wood floors

The dining room got an update with new furniture and accessories.

Our living room was actually the room behind the blog!   The living room was the first room to be redecorated.

The laundry room didn’t function well and happened to be ugly to boot.   With a relatively inexpensive update we upgraded it from junky to organized and now it serves a dual role!

I am soooo happy with our kitchen remodel.  It really did go from drab to fab in about a week!  I blogged about the entire remodel as it was happening and love the results. The kitchen has also been featured in a national magazine!

We have one small half bathroom downstairs.

Upstairs, we have the bedrooms.  The guest room is simple and bright.

Our shared office benefitted from an inexpensive redo, using what we already had.

Our master bedroom used to look like this, but we tackled a DIY board and batten project and we love the peaceful atmosphere.

In the master bathroom we’ve upgraded the shower, flooringvanity and most importantly the toilet!.

Along with the three bedrooms, we have a small guest bathroom.

The stairwell to the basement was freshened up with paint in three phases.

And in the basement we’ve also cleaned up and made it more functional!

We haven’t done a lot with the garage, but we have managed to clean it up and organize using our old kitchen cabinets!

Last summer, we finally began working on the outdoor spaces.

We’re just continuing to press on a little at a time!

Paint colors are listed here.
