Home Tour

Welcome to our home tour!

We have DIY’d our way through our home in the last 15 years here.
Pretty much everything from top to bottom!

I’ve decorated our home with thrifty finds and done most of it on a major budget.

You can find some of the things  we’ve done here:

Furniture Makeovers

Thrifty Home Decor

Home DIY Projects

One of our biggest transformations was our coastal kitchen recently.

In the 15 years we’ve lived here, this space has seen several makeovers.
You can find info on the DIY tiled backsplash, here.

We actually made that island from big box store cabinets. It got another makeover with the recent kitchen remodel.
You can read all about that here.

The “dining room” is now the morning room. And we love it!

It’s such a great place to sit and have a cup of coffee or tea, relax and read.

Our little coffee bar in here is a treasure. (and a thrifty makeover, you can read all about it, here)

What would normally be the “formal living room” was never one in our home. But it has been the dining room and a study at different times.
And now as a dining room again.

Need tips on shelf styling?? See this post, here.

A little short on space in our foyer, we decided to build a coat rack for the wall inside the dining room.
This otherwise wasted space became the perfect spot for a little “mudroom” action with a bench.

One of my absolute favorite furniture makeovers, this blue dresser I use in our dining room.

The family room, AKA “the cave” as it was known when we moved in, with its dark brown paneling, carpet, etc.

We took that stuff down in a hurry and replaced it with this DIY faux board and batten.

Our laundry room got a big makeover 2 years ago.
We turned it into a coastal farmhouse laundry with DIY faux shiplap and a DIY wood countertop too!

Our little coastal guest bath got a makeover a few years ago.
Although I have plans for a little updating in there too.

And since the holidays are kind of a big deal around here (I love the holidays and love decorating!) I thought I’d share a few photos of our home decorated for Christmas.
