Tour Our New Home Full of DIY Home Decor Projects!

April 30, 2021

If you are looking for the tour of our old home, click HERE.

If you want to know what paint colors we have used in our current house or where we have found our furniture, art, rugs, etc., you are in the right place! You can find details on nearly everything in our home, broken down room-by-room, on this page.

We have linked to similar items if the exact item we bought it is no longer available OR is something that we purchased at a thrift store or found on the side of the road :) We have also linked to the DIY home decor projects that we have completed in each space.

We moved into this home at the end of October 2020 and are slowly but surely transforming it one room at a time. Just as we did in our last house, we are totally transforming our house by tackling TONS of DIY home improvement projects, DIY home decor projects, DIY craft projects and DIY furniture projectsYou can take the “before” tour part 1 HERE and part 2 HERE.

Why do we spend so much time and effort on our home? Because our physical environments are SO IMPORTANT! The place where you go to sleep and wake up every day MATTERS to your overall happiness. Environmental psychologists recognize that for most people, their home is part of their self-definition. So if you aren’t happy with your home, that is a significant problem. 

When we wake up and go to sleep feeling frustrated with our cluttered and outdated home, those feelings follow us around and impact every other aspect of our lives. But when we open our eyes in the morning and love what we see and have a smooth morning because our homes function well for our families, that happiness and contentment will follow us around. That contentment improves our entire day on a subconscious level we aren’t even aware of. When we are excited to go home at the end of a stressful day of work because we feel happy and welcome the moment we open the door, we are able to rest and recharge before the next day begins. 

I get asked all the time how I come up with my room designs. I was asked so often that I finally created Designer in a Binder which walks you through the exact design system I use every time. It's an affordable alternative to an interior designer. It's helped over 7,900 people so far to create rooms they absolutely love. Click HERE to learn more.
