a pre-move home tour

during the month of october we've been moving to a new house. that doesn't just mean we have a new house waiting to be made a new home, but also a new town, a new church, a new job for my husband [at the new church] new doctors, new routines, & in the spring, a new baby in the family!

that's a ton of new.

as we're packing up the old house & making trips back & forth to the new one, i thought it would be fun to put together a home tour of what it looks like right now- not only to remember & show the kids later, but to see that i really do finish a project every once in a blue moon! it looks quite a bit different since the last one i did last christmas [the last time i did a home tour], since i'm a chronic re-arranger & can't leave well enough alone when it comes to crafty decorating.

entry foyer

entry foyer projects:

living room

living room projects:
gallery wall
empty frame to mood board
little blue end tables
i made the leaf pillow, but apparently never wrote about it!
the chunky wood lamps were also thrifted, & the gorgeous round green family art was custom handmade through a local shop- it was my anniversary present last year!




den/playroom projects:
little frames on the side tables
additional sources:
the toy storage is an ikea expedit [bought used on craigslist] with target dollar spot buckets, the black coffee table was a $25 flea market find, the baskets under the side tables are from kmart, & the ocean painting on top of the expedit was painted by my hub's grandmother!

dining room


dining room projects:
giant coffee filter wreath
i'll fully admit the dining room never got to the point of what i would call an 'after.' i spent lots of time on the living room/den/playroom & the master bedroom since that's where we spend lots of our time. but i did do some little tweaks here & there!

guest bath

guest bath projects:
stenciled shower curtain & jute wrapped hooks

master bedroom

master bedroom projects:
refinished bedside tables
additional sources:
all our bedding is from tj maxx/homegoods, i made the yellow pillow out of 2 napkins, & the yellow shades you probably recognize from target!

big girl room
before [our guest bedroom]:



big girl room projects:
i made all of the Ks above her window except for the chunky hot pink one, which was from michael's. you can tell i do most of my crafting for my kiddos- my big girl especially is so fun & easy to please! the paper lanterns are from target/michael's/various dollar places, & the striped rug & most of her bedding was target clearance or hand-me-downs.

baby boy nursery


 boy nursery projects:
paint stick letters
big paper mache letter
repurposed twig baby mobile [tutorial coming!]
wood bible verse artwork [tutorial coming!]
distressed dresser

i also made the little twig wreath out of sticks from the park & a ring cut from cardboard, & a good friend reupholstered our rocking chair cushions as a baby gift!

i'm excited to share some new projects as we get into the new house & start decorating for thanksgiving & 2 birthdays in november [not to mention christmas rapidly approaching...]
