(aka “The Mom Cave”)
Our living room was a dark dumping grounds of stuff that was just here to fill space. Thanks to La-Z-Boy and an amazing opportunity to have our room featured in print, we got to work and transformed it into a mom cave. A lot of love and hard work went into this room! We emptied it all out, painted the trim, picked a great color, wow. I love the room and now we actually use it.
Here are all of the posts on our Mom Cave and Living Room.
our family room has gone through a lot of changes, maybe because we practically live in there? It started out kinda gross when we moved in.
Want every post I’ve ever posted about the family room? Here you go. (There’s a lot.)
Like our clipboard wall? Here’s the tutorial for how to make a clipboard wall gallery for under $25.
and want to see a post with really, really old befores of the room? check out this one to see some wood paneling, ceiling tiles, and gross carpet.
Gold flecked countertops and backsplash, old laminate tile, wood cabinets, and green appliances. Can’t picture it? Here’s what our kitchen used to look like.
This before and after is a huge transformation, but by using paint, finding good deals (Black Friday countertops!), repurposing things we had, and waiting patiently, we spent under $500.

Normally the foyer doesn’t deserve a post of its own, but this one does. You see, we built this foyer from scratch. We saw a problem (no real foyer, one hot mess), dropped a floor, built some walls, stairs and railings. This was my idea and one of my favorite DIYs to date. It also led to us adding a breakfast bar/island/counter out of repurposed floor boards and we pretty much eat every meal there. Changed our lives. ;)

Wowza. We recently painted the trim white (it was gross, don’t be sad) and painted the walls. The hutches, dining table, and light fixture are from garage sales and then painted. Before pictures and details on the artwork are in this post. I love the before and after because it has the SAME furniture! Power of paint, people.
