House Tour 2012

The last time I updated our house tour was in 2010 and we’ve done a lot of work since then! This year, some big projects included: installing wood flooring, building a foyer, painting walls, painting some trim, rearranging and adding furniture, and more.


Click the room name or picture below it to see the “before” pictures and and room specific projects. If you are interested in how everything is laid out, here is a post describing our floor plan.

It’s a work in progress, and I’m sure even a month or two from now things will change, but here we go!

Family Room










Dining Room



Living Room:


Master Bedroom


Kids’ Bedroom

yes, we have three kids in one bedroom :)



 Unfinished Second Floor (Attic)


Laundry Room




Décor & Craft Storage


It’s easy to get hung up in the projects on the to-do list but it is so cool to look back and see how much things have changed since we moved in!

This year we were set on finishing three things: the wood flooring in the family room and kitchen, remodeling the bathroom, painting some trim white, and putting in a brick patio off of the family room. So far, we’re in November, and three of those four things are done! Oh it feels so good.

What projects did you want to complete this year?

Did you finish them?

What else is on your list?

    I see you got bunks for the kiddos!!! That’s great!! Maybe you did a post on that and I missed it. Everything looks very nice! You’re home has a nice flow to it.

    The foyer is just gorgeous! I cannot believe you guys did that. Everything is so fresh and clean. I really love the pops of color and the map in the family room and that little painting/globe/clock vignette in the kiddos room. Beautiful home for a beautiful family :)
