Two year prior to and following home tour! {I’ve done a LOT!}

Hello there! I had been off in a blogging conference a week and I arrived home energized to handle a lot of jobs both in the home and on the site. I’m eager to get to work!

But first, both year anniversary in this home! It was only a couple of days back and I can not let it pass without a before and following recap from the last few years.

I really like these articles since I see how I’ve made this home our house and may see proof that I’m much more effective than I believe occasionally.

I expect you love before and after photos as much as I do! It’s a lot of pleasure to return. This time I’m with TRUE prior shots — shot before we moved in. Keep in your mind that the before pics look much larger because there is nothing inside them. :-RRB- I’ll discuss what I finished in every area and connect into the huge jobs too.

Let’s begin our excursion at the foyer — here is how it looked before we proceeded from:

And here is that distance today: 

I painted the ceiling a fairly blue (I really like to paint ceilings! ) ) , changed out the light fixture (that one went into the pantry) and finished these jobs: 

Our powder area was the very first room I handled after moving , and that I have not changed one thing about it because: 

If your fundamentals are in great shape you can make a significant impact using a little elbow grease! :

The large stuff remained the Exact Same in here — additions just like a wall remedy, the mirror and background helped to alter the space: 

This is one of my favorite jobs ! Here’s a prior to my workplace: 
DIY green bookcases in office
DIY built in bookcases made with cabinets
Our living room is just another favorite. This is the area which made us fall in LOVE with this home: 
Two story great room with fireplace
Two story family room with navy fireplace
Two story fireplace in family room open stairs
Grid pattern on fireplace wall

Our kitchen has not undergone any massive projects, but the small ones have made a difference. Here’s how it seemed before we moved :

And this opinion currently:

I do not think any of these jobs cost more than $100: 

Our morning area has undergone the most striking transformation:

Morning room with lots of windows
Morning/dining room with dark walls and built in window seat
Built in bookcases and window seat with lights

I LOOOOVE the habit touches I’ve added in here!

Our master bedroom is gradually but surely turning into a cozy cocoon of a room and I really like it! Big upgrades are occurring in here this week — check out my stories on Instagram to follow along!

Our basement has not viewed as much DIY activity, but I’ve nonetheless achieved a lot down . Here’s a earlier: 
Open basement family room

Here’s that rear corner : 

Large sectional sofa family room
Board game storage kid space

Our mud/laundry space is one of my favorite rooms in the home as it’s really large and spacious. It looked good before:

Mud/laundry combo marble tile

But I’ve had a whole lot of fun adding my own touches to it!

And last but not least, our garden looked like that when we moved : 
Dark gray craftsman house
Dark gray Craftsman house patio fire pit

There are a few rooms I did not share because the jobs are not too striking — but this reveals how distinct the home looks in two decades. I can not wait to find out what happens in the following year! :-RRB- 

Did you overlook any jobs I discussed here? 

Keep in your mind home jobs are my JOB and also my enthusiasm, so things occur at a faster pace around here. It’s been a complete blast and I’ve had a lot of fun sharing it with you! We still pinch ourselves every day we get to call this home our house.
