Hello my friends! This month marks our three year anniversary in this house!
I have had an absolute blast adding my touch to almost every room in our
home — it brings me so much joy. As I do every year, I wanted to share how
many of the rooms looked right after moving in, and how they look now.
Before and after posts are my FAVORITE! So here we go! I’ll link to a few of
the projects from each space under the photos, but let me know if I miss
Let’s start with our master, since it’s one of the rooms I worked on
recently. It is a long room with a tall tray ceiling and a TON of windows.
Here’s how it looked soon after moving in:
I did a LOT to this space last year — I wanted it to have a dark and cozy
After a lot of work it’s become our cocoon away from the world:
Our mud and laundry combo is one of my favorites in our house — it serves
so many purposes and is BIG! Love it. Here’s the before:
Our kitchen has seen a BUNCH of smaller DIY project that make a big
difference! Here’s how it looked three years ago:
And here are just a few of my favorite updates I’ve made!:
The foyer hasn’t received nearly as many updates, but the few I’ve done made a
big difference! When we moved in, I placed the same furniture in the same spot
as our last house:
It was lovely, I loved that blue dresser!
But I soon realized my style had changed and I wanted a different look:
My office has seen a ton of changes! This is what I started with:
We extended our hardwoods into this space first (our floors were discontinued
right after we moved in 😞 but we were lucky to find some of the last
I added a HUGE bulletin board that I just love:
And built this wall of bookcases that makes a big statement and provides so
much storage! I love them so much:
Our basement looked pretty great to start:
But I’ve been warming it up since then! It’s SO cozy down there!:
I talk a lot about our great room updates because 1.) we spend most of our
time in here and 2.) it’s probably my favorite room in the house.
I don’t have a good before picture of this room, so here’s a pre-move in
Here’s a view after adding some much needed drama!:
I continued that moody color into our dining area, or morning room as it’s
called in our home plan. Here’s how it looked shortly after moving in:
And finally, one of the spaces we use the most! Last year we had a large patio
poured in the backyard:
We love LOVE our backyard! It’s so big and has so much potential.
I’ve done a lot since that patio was installed:
This is truly our dream house…it fits our family so well and we are so in
love with it. It has been SO MUCH fun to work on each space. Of course there
are other rooms I’ve added to as well, but these were the biggies.
As always, thank you for following along! 🙂
