We added a DIY Painted Rug, DIY boxwood wreath, DIY Concrete Planters, DIY modern house numbers, and some potted plants to our front porch area. We also updated an old bench and placed it on the porch. We brought in tons of gravel to level off the front of our yard and added all new mulch this past year. Over the next year, we hope to trim all branches and landscape differently in the front yard.
Outdoors (Back): In Progress
The back yard is getting leveled with dirt/sod and we are slowly sprucing up the patio area. We added new mulch and river rocks around the patio and recently updated our old umbrella with a little paint and pom pom trim. We have lots of ideas for the backyard space and I’m sure it will continually evolve over the seasons.
Interior: 4 Levels
(Entry Floor, Main Level, Upstairs and Basement)
Entry Floor: Entryway, Laundry Room, Playroom, 1/2 Bath and Studio Space
Entryway: 50% Complete
We had a whole different look in our entryway (see our Bright and Modern Entryway if you want to see more) but realized that our style had changed.
A few plants, a vintage rug and some leftover decor pieces from other rooms have all come together for this space.
I have some plans for the space longterm, but for now this is where we are at.
Playroom/Office: 50% Complete
Eventually, this room will probably turn into a full-on library/office. That’s the dream anyways.
Main Living Floor:
Kitchen, Eat-In Kitchen, Formal Dining, Living Room and Loft Hallway
Eat-In Kitchen: Completed
We planked the wall, added a large-scale DIY highland cow, installed a new light, made leather cushions, reupholstered chairs, DIY’d a bench seat, sewed lots of pillows, and installed a small gallery wall.

We DIY’d almost everything in our kitchen and you can see all 40 posts for all the how-to tutorials in our Kitchen Reveal post.
Formal Dining Room: Completed
We recently finished the formal dining room (see how we originally had it – The Eclectic Blue and White Dining Room) and love how it now pairs with our kitchen. We changed out the light, installed wallpaper and added lots of character with plants.
Living Room: 65% complete
Eventually, I’d like to add a built-in fireplace, figure out that corner built-in and finish adding baseboards!
Upstairs: Master Bedroom and Bath, Greyson’s Room, Guest Room and Main Bathroom
Master Bedroom: Completed
We actually finished our bedroom a few years ago but decided that we didn’t love it anymore. So, we transformed that space again. See our original Rainwashed Bright and Fresh Master bedroom.
02/17: We completed the Mid-Century Modern Master Bedroom and we absolutely love it.
Master Bathroom Nook : Completed (until big Master Bath remodel)
We recently (May 2015) participated in the One Room Challenge. We knocked the majority of the guest bedroom out during the challenge. We made a bed, a DIY Hanging planter, DIY artwork, and added lots of texture to the room. We would love to finish it off by replacing the carpet.
See the original One Room Challenge Guest Bedroom Makeover here.
Over the last six months, we have slowly tweaked things in the guest bedroom. I’m loving where we are currently at.
See more of the recent reveal of this mid-century inspired room.
Greyson’s (BIG BOY) Room : 95%
We made a firetruck light, blew-up a large picture, painted a customized magnetic map wall, installed a new fan, created a reading loft, added new bedding, refinished a dresser, refinished a metal cart and painted.
See more pictures and details here.
Upstairs Hallway: In Progress
We ripped down wallpaper, had the walls re-mudded, painted, added new lights, and added a travel gallery wall (on one side of the hallway). We need to finish painting the trim, install hardwood flooring and work on the travel gallery wall on the other side of the hallway.
Hallway Bathroom: 65%
We put in new lights, installed tile, added some privacy to the windows, put in new sinks and faucets, redid the electrical, relocated sconces and mirrors, ripped down wallpaper, painted almost everything, and added some DIY plant hangers.
You can see more pictures and details of the bathroom in the bathroom reveal.
We have quite a few rooms that haven’t been touched at all (carpet in some bathrooms, no overhead lights, etc.) but we are slowly making progress. We’d love to have you follow along.
