The house is packed. We’ve squeezed in last playdates, friend date nights, and favorite restaurants. Texas has been home for 7 years. We raised our babies here and made the very best friends. This little, ordinary home has been good to us. Today I’m doing one last tour before we go!
Final Home Tour
When I couldn’t convince my husband Nathan to paint our board and batten pink, I painted the door instead. Our entryway is always full of backpacks, butterfly costumes, and tiny kid purses.
From a moody black accent wall to a bright room with a green fireplace. This room always gets lots of natural light. Our fireplace made for cozy winters too.
Creating a home you love takes time, and this space was in the beginning phase of getting all the love and attention it deserves. But I love how we made it work for us in the meantime and on a small budget.
Gah, the plans I had for this kitchen kept me awake at night! Earthy blue cabinets, butcher block counters, tall cabinets. My favorite part about this room is the bright morning light. It makes having a cup of tea at our breakfast table the best start to the day.
Who ever thought we’d do such a dark paint in here? Not me. The unexpected amount of color drama in this primary suite has made for such a fun year. I’ve never shied away from paint colors, and I can’t wait to try some new ideas in our next home too.
When my oldest was born we swore we wouldn’t force “girlie” colors into our home. It turns out my kids just freaking love pink. Me too! Our pink scalloped room was an easy way to incorporate their favorite color in a modern and fun way.
We’ll always remember our girls’ first big girl room–with a rainbow paint mural! I still remember the day we got the keys to this house. We picked up lunch and ate in the middle of this room. We dreamed about all the projects we’d do to make this home our own.
This was our last DIY renovation project here. A room flip filled with character right before we listed our house. This project was a good reminder that we can finish a project quickly if we actually have a plan.. and a schedule. Which is not at all how we approached our primary bathroom renovation.
This room was almost blue instead of green. Between a hundred thousand paint samples, I picked this dark green and never looked back! Blood, sweat, and tears–and many late nights and weekends– transformed this room from a sad, old bathroom into this modern look. The shiplap ceiling to cover up the popcorn texture was the icing on the cake in this room. My favorite part will always be the hex tile floor, though.
I’ll be sharing pictures of our next home in the next few weeks! We’ll be transitioning to fixing up a forever home instead of a “for now” home. Which means even bigger and better projects ahead. We’ll miss the tacos and the people here in Texas. Our little, ordinary home you see here has been a fun project to test out ideas, and learn how to DIY well. I’m so looking forward to more in our next home.
P.S. Which room will you miss the most?!
