Welcome to my home tour! I’m honored to share a look into our well loved, hard working home!
Nothing fancy or expensive, just a lot of elbow grease, hours of Pinterest gazing and frugal shopping thrown together with many budget DIY projects.
Our home is not big, fancy or new, but as our children have begun to leave the nest we’ve worked hard to transform each space with maximum efficiency while stamping our own signature style in each room.
I love yard sales and thrift stores, and the better the deal, the happier I am! If you’re like me, you want to find a less expensive and more practical way to make your house a home. I hope you will find some inspiration below.
My Home Tour
Our biggest transformation consisted of completely gutting our kitchen (which included taking down a wall between our kitchen and living room).
Our master bedroom is a recent project and contains a bit of my heart and soul.
You’ll be amazed at the before and afters in this room because with the exception of one or two items, everything (and I mean EVERYTHING) is either a DIY project, a yardsale find or a hand me down. (Read all about how I decorate for practically nothing in this post.)
I transformed my son’s teenage bedroom into an inexpensive coastal retreat. You can read all about the beginnings of the makeover here, the design inspiration here and this fabulous DIY plank wall with chalk paint!
My craft room has been reorganized and updated a few times. Tim and I spent hours talking through the details, and I spent weeks poring over every magazine, website and blog that I could find. It’s a small room and I have a lot of stuff to organize!
Our den makeover resulted from taking up 20-year-old carpet and installing Pergo flooring. The red was definitely a stretch for us, but I love the bold color set against the wood flooring with the family gallery accent wall.
Last but not least, we gutted our entire bathroom minus the toilet and tub. DIY projects combine with thrifted decor in our most challenging project ever.
Here you can see my teenage daughter’s room and inspiration wall where she is reminded of her value every day.
Want to see more? I love to decorate for Christmas and you can see my 2017 Christmas Home home tour here.
Rustic decorating is my style and you can see it in my Christmas kitchen here.
So there you have it! A lot of hard work combined with a little ingenuity, hours of plotting and planning and a desire to repurpose on a budget. Hope you enjoyed my home tour!
