What's Hap-pinning Wednesday: Some House Befores + Afters

Happy Wednesday, friends! I'm excited to link up with Jessi and Jenn today to share a few before-and-after pictures of our new house. 

It's definitely a slow process and I'm nowhere near finished with this house! At our old house, I would just buy stuff to fill the space so I could check off the "having it completed box" -- even though I didn't 100% love it...and so I was never truly satisfied and always ended up not loving my décor, paint colors, etc. So, Brandon and I have both been on a mission to truly love our home and everything in it, and we love filling it with sentimental pieces, too. And so that means that we're living with some bare walls until we can find exactly what we love and want to hang on them; fixtures and hardware we aren't fans of until we can afford to replace it all at once; and upstairs bathrooms straight out of 1995 until we save up enough to have them completed. 

Here are some before-and after pictures (all "before" pictures via MLS):

We still have a long way to go upstairs and in our master bedroom especially, but we are thrilled with how far our house has come! If you have any questions about paint colors, décor, etc., please let me know in the comments and I'd be happy to let you know what it is/where it came from. There's just so much here that I'd spend forever linking everything! :)


  1. I think the master bath is my favorite transformation! That or the entry way. That old blue-ish grey paint color IS pretty, just very aggressive on the eyes, ha!

    1. Thanks, girl! Actually, that paint color is the same. Amazing what changing the carpet and staining the banister will do! 😉

  2. Love all the things you did!! I totally agree, it's better to wait and find exactly what you want - we (tried) to do that with our current house and I love it so much more!

  3. You have come so far - I love all the updates you did! We were the same way at our old house I just wanted it "done" and at the new house we have a few things that may take a while but I'd rather just wait and do it right!

  4. Everything is looking SO good!!! Love what all you've done.

  5. Oh my WORD! I love this! I must say that the entry and living transformation are my absolute favs!

  6. Your home is so gorgeous! I especially love your kitchen and master bathroom. What a difference in those spaces to make them both gorgeous and more functional for you!
