Happy Saturday!



 "The hills are alive with the sound of music
With songs they have sung for a thousand years
The hills fill my heart with the sound of music
My heart wants to sing every song it hears..."

Just wanted to pop in and wish you all a happy Saturday! We'll be back next with the tufted ottoman that we made for our family room. 




Have a lovely weekend!

More Progress in Our Den/Study



When we moved our Arhaus sofa into our family room that left a spot in our den/study that we needed to fill. We wanted something comfortable that also had a bit of a sophisticated feel to it. I'd been eyeing this sofa at Savvy for quite a while now and after inquiring about it discovered it belonged to Barbara Hartmann Interiors. Barbara gave us a deal we couldn't pass up and we were thrilled to add this to the room. We also highly recommend you give her a call if you are looking for a designer. I've seen several spaces she has designed and they are absolutely stunning!

We are still on the hunt for the right ottoman (we stole this one from the playroom a couple of months ago and took the slipcover off and are using it in here temporarily) and probably some leather chairs but other than that this room is almost finished. We just added the side table from HomeGoods last week. It wasn't what I had in mind originally but I brought it home to try because I was looking for something with a round top and I ended up liking it. We also added the lamp on the table and the golfer from HomeGoods as well. The one thing that we did change up though since taking these pictures was the white fluffy pillows. The girls picked those out but they only lasted a couple of hours before they were dubbed much too girly for this space by the male of the house. =)






The photo is of my great great grandparents.

Two Years - Lots of Before and Afters...


Technically it's been two years and a couple of weeks. I started working on this post at the end of June but have gotten sidetracked a few times so I am just now finishing it up - whoops! We've been in our home for two years now and are almost done making it over. It has been a lot of fun but I have to admit we are very relieved to have the bulk of the work behind us. We loved the location and layout of the house but wanted to update it and give it a lighter, brighter feel. 

We'll start with the front entryway. This is what it looked like the day we moved in:

And here is what it looks like now:

Here is is before looking at it from the opposite direction:

and here is an after:

And here is one last before angle of this space. This angle is if you are standing in the doorway of the dining room:

And here is what it looks like now:

You can find a detailed source list and all paint color info in the "our home" section of our blog and you can see all of the posts relating to our entry way which will have all the details by clicking here


Next up is our dining room. The first year we painted the walls and trim and added the chandelier. This year we painted the walls a darker color, built a new dining room table and shelving system and added some new chairs to the side and ends. 

Here is what it looked like the day we moved in:

And this is what it looks like now:

A before shot facing the other side of the dining room:

And here is our family room the day we moved in:

We've painted this room twice which was a total pain because it also meant repainting the kitchen and kitchen cabinets twice too, but I am so glad we did because it feels so much more cohesive with the rest of our house now. Here is what it looks like now:

and here is another before shot taken of the other side:

And here it is now:



This is also a before shot of that same room but a little further down closer to the kitchen area:

And our pantry before and after:

  And here is our Den/Study the day we moved in:

And here is how it looked a few weeks ago. I actually just rephotographed this room a few days ago though, seeing how we have a different sofa in here now. I still need to transfer those onto my computer and go through them but I plan on posting those images later this week.

And next up is the laundry room:

This was a quick fix for now. We plan on adding a more permanent counter and floor eventually but it's nice having it more functional now:

And here is our porch. We did have some doors added so you can exit on either side but other than this was mostly just "decorating", I couldn't find any "befores" so these are just the current shots:

Next up was the upstairs hallway:

And here is a before and after of the linen closet in this upstairs hallway:

And here is the upstairs hallway bathroom the day we moved in:

And here's the after:

And here is our master bathroom on the day we moved in. We are still deciding what we are going to do in here (basically trying to decide whether to keep the footprint but update everything or to expand  and steal some space from the guest room so we could make the shower larger in here and possibly add a tub.)

While we are saving up and still deciding what to do in here we did a quick and inexpensive mini makeover in here which you can read more about in this post here.

And then we have the girls' room. Here is what it looked like a few hours after we moved in:

And here is what it looks like now (well, after they clean it up) :

And then lastly here are some before and after's of the playroom (which is very pink thanks to my two little helpers):

Well, I am pretty sure that's it. It's been a LOT of work but also a lot of fun and I am so happy all of that painting is behind us - haha!

I'll be back later this week showing you the updates to the den and also at some point soon the new ottoman we built for the family room.

I hope you all have a fabulous Sunday!
