Hello there! Hope your week is going well! I’m back with an 18 month before and after recap of our home. I really can’t believe it’s been that long — because it feels like we’ve lived here WAY longer. Feels like many years, not months. Not sure if that’s a good or bad thing. 😂 I’ll go with good.
You all know looking back and seeing what I’ve accomplished so far is just about my favorite thing ever. A lot of people wondered what I would do with myself in a new house. I always laugh because it has given me a whole new canvas for projects. (I knew it would!) I’ve had an absolute blast adding my stamp to it!
Some have asked why I didn’t have the builder do many of the transformations, and the main reason is…I just know I need more time to make decisions. When it comes to paint colors and built ins and stuff like that…I need to live in the space to figure it all out. That, and I know I can do things cheaper on my own. 🙂
So I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite makeovers so far — be sure to check out this post
to see how the house looked one year in! I grabbed some of these photos from my Instagram account
just because they are the most up-to-date.
The dining area/morning room got a lot of attention last fall! This is how the room looked at my first reveal:
It was lovely! I just wanted to add some contrast and character in here.
About six months after moving in we found furniture for this space that we loved. Later I added a moody paint color, a window seat and built ins:
I hadn’t put the rug back in here when I took this photo, but the room now has the rug that was in our family room.
I’m thrilled to have a dedicated foyer in this home! It’s one of the things that I loved about the layout. Here’s the foyer after unpacking and getting things settled:
I realized something the longer we lived here — just because I had a piece of furniture in a room in the old house, I could switch things up a bit! I stuck to what I had before, and it was silly, but an epiphany of sorts that I could change it up.
So this year I moved some furniture around (I added the $15 wall treatment
last year and then painted the ceiling too) and now it feels SO much more like this
I have many more projects on my list for our master
, but we are loving the dramatic changes we’ve made so far! Here’s the master soon after moving in:
I looooove the dark ceiling in here! It’s so incredibly cozy:
The powder room makeover was my first in this house — I started on the smallest room and it still took me forever! This was the room soon after moving in:
Our basement family room always been one of our favorite spots in the house! This is how it looked the first time I shared it:
I added a dark accent wall that runs the length of the basement:
The nearby wall got the dark gray color as well. It started like this:
And now looks like this after the recent updates I made:
Our kitchen didn’t get many updates till recently — I just finished up a bunch of smaller projects. Here’s a shot I took right before moving in:
Our family room
was the room I focused on most for the first six months or so. Here’s a shot of the stair wall a few days after moving in:
And here it is a couple weeks ago (ignore the dog toys):
Those simple picture ledges
are one of my favorite DIYs ever — you can see larger versions of them in the basement above as well!
I love the symmetry of our family room, but I was craving some contrast. It was very vanilla before:
And now the dark wall color on the fireplace wall and built ins (I added those last year) adds a bit of drama but still keeps things calm and cozy:
My mind literally swims with ideas! I’m so thankful for our beautiful home and all of the potential for projects that keep me busy and give me an outlet for my do-it-myself and decor passions.
It has been so much fun and I’m so thankful to have you all join in with this process! Do you have a favorite transformation so far? Have you tried any of these projects in your home?
