Our Farmhouse

Room Makeovers: Before and After

Are you as interested in before and after pictures as me?  There is just something about seeing a crummy room and then the incredible transformation that gets my creative juices flowing!  I thought that it would be fun to walk down memory lane to the beginning and look at some before and after shots from our farmhouse.  Sometimes I forget how far we have come in the 20 months since we moved in to our home.  Think of this as therapy for me.  And maybe it will get your creativity going too!  {I will include a link for each makeover so that you can read the entire post if you’d like!}

Just for kicks, I am going to list them in the order in which we tackled each project:

1. Up first was what I refer to as, “The Little Office that Could.”  You can read more about the details on how this became our first project, but it comes down to: Dad needs to work + noisy homeschool family = Wall


2. It took a few months, but I finally found some inspiration to begin the first living area makeover in “Visions of Home.”  The living room has had a few updates since this initial post and you can see those in “Living Room Changes” and “Calm and Peaceful.”


3. The next makeover was a two part project as well that was only recently completed.  You can read about the initial makeover in “Welcome” and the final transformation in “{Modern} Farmhouse Front Entry.”


4. That front entrance led up the staircase and into the upstairs hallway.  I couldn’t leave well enough alone, so this space got a few makeovers as well.  😉  You can read about the original changes at “One LONG Hallway” and the follow-up in “Children’s Reading Nook Makeover“.


5. Next up is a very “popular” room and almost everyone who visits our home has an opportunity to see this room.  Can you guess what it is?  It’s the potty!  You can read the details about this room at “A Main Bathroom Refresh.”


So, what do you think?  Which is your favorite makeover?  Any plans for some room makeovers in your home?

Stay tuned for a part two coming soon!  I’ve got some bedrooms and a kitchen/dining room to share with you still!
