Happy Friday!! It’s been a while since I’ve had a few minutes to do what I love and that my friends is blogging. I’ve quickly fell in love with it. It’s a time to share my little bits and pieces of creativity and hopefully spread a little inspiration. One of my favorite things to see are before and after pictures. They inspire me. They help me see where something came from and how, with a little hard work and vision, you can create something new. Something fresh. Something that reflects what you love or worked hard for. When we moved into our home four years ago, the previous owner had a much different decorating style than myself. I looked at it the first time and wondered what I could do to fall in love with the space. I wanted it to reflect what I love. I wanted it to be a cozy and fun place for my family.
I’m starting with my living room. Here are a few pictures of how our home looked before we moved in.
As you can see, it was very formal. I loved the home, but it needed a loving touch. I wanted it to reflect all the things I love. So, with a little vision it started turning into fun little projects and I began to fall in love with my home.
This turned into…….
All the things I love. Chippy doors, tobacco basket, windows, neutral tones….
One of my first projects was this fireplace. The color and mantel were way off so I decided to paint it. See how I painted it Here
My hope is that even if this is not your style, this post can give you some inspiration to put your own personal touch on your space. I am having so much fun in the process!! Stay tuned for my kitchen before and after pictures! Thank you so much for stopping by!! Feel free to leave a question or a comment below! Have a beautiful weekend!!
