That's right we're expecting a new edition to the family! Baby is due to arrive in early summer. You may recognize the room as our old guest bedroom. The guest bed has since moved into the office to make room for baby. Here's a look at what we've done with the nursery!
I am beyond excited to show off the before and after pictures of our kitchen! Our goal here was to give the kitchen a more stylish, country look. Although much of the kitchen was finished shortly after we moved in the back splash and grout work were just completed last week.
Today I want to show you three simple projects we did to completely change the look of our kitchen- and it all cost under $185! Now, if we had the money, sure I'd love to put in granite counters and custom cabinets but that's not really the situation we (or most people) are in.
I'm so excited to show off our guest bedroom makeover today. I've featured a few pictures of this room before when we put in the pine flooring but I haven't shown the completed look. This room was arguably the worst in the house when we bought it. The carpet was covered in gum (we think a young teenager was in this room before) and also smelled and had some staining because of the pig that had also lived here (no joke).
I haven't done a post in awhile of the room makeovers we've done in our home so next up is the office. This room had some good bones- an electric fireplace, hardwood floors, and gorgeous wood trim. However, that fireplace and trim were all painted in a deep plum color and the walls were a deep forest green. Hey, if that's your thing I don't want to knock you, but it just didn't work for us.
Next up on our house transformation tour is the master bedroom. Overall, this room wasn't terrible compared to the ones downstairs and the guest room. The pale yellow walls were actually nice, except that one of the walls was painted neon yellow for unexplained reasons. But to make this house feel like our home we wanted to change the colors anyway. Check out a few of the before pictures below before we dive into the renovations.
When we bought our house, every room on the first floor was painted in very dark, very earthy colors. This is not our style AT ALL and we didn't feel like it fit the vibe of Salem either. So our first major project when we officially closed on the house was to paint every room both upstairs and down. The master bathroom is actually the only room we like the color of and haven't painted over (yet).
Over time, I'll be featuring posts on every room in our house that we've transformed (which is all of them) but before we get to that, I really have to dedicate a post to our flooring upstairs. Without re-doing these floors, the house really would not look as gorgeous as it does.
