Who loves a good before and after?! It's amazing what a coat of paint and discovering beautiful oak floors under 30-year-old granny carpet can do for a place. Best yet, this was accomplished using almost exclusively thrift store, estate sale, clearance aisle, or free items. #beforeandafter#pjandthomas#newhome#roommakeover
You don't have to spend a lot! Another budget room makeover for less than $50. I drew the faux wallpaper with a Sharpie paint pen. My Ballard Designs knockoff light fixture was made for $10 using a thrifted light fixture that was already in the room. Mirror was a gifted. Everything else in the room is just stuff I had and painted. Swipe to see the before. Tutorials are on my blog. Save money where you can so you will have a little extra money to spend somewhere else. #tuesdaydwellings#budgetmakeover
A Big Sneak Peek: Week 3 ORC
This is going to be a quick update on the #oneroomchallenge . I am currently sick again, and this chest cold isn't messing around. 😷
If you have been watching my stories you know that the room is all painted! Woo hoo! I switched out the white outlets for black and added a dimmer. (See how that little box blends right in?) I also cleaned the nasty carpet a few days ago. (It just wasn't in the budget to replace it right now.) ✔
Something I didn't story about was my plan for the bed. I painted the black bedframe green! What do you think? (I will share my thoughts on it later.)
Last thing before I get myself a nap, the layout is still a bit up in the air. You would think a small little room would be super easy, but it has to do a lot of work. I will talk about the options this coming week, so keep an eye on my stories.
Coming up for next week:
- Window Covering
- Bedding? (still tweaking that)
Don't forget to visit some of my fellow participants for inspiration. @creekwoodhill, @savoring_home, @elevenhouses, @suzannahstanley, and @relativerenovations are just a few of the ones I am enjoying. A lot of us have hit snags, but I am so glad to have some motivation from @oneroomchallenge to pull this room together.
As we get closer and closer to the holidays, I figured I’d at least try to get the guest room going. I don’t have guests over all the time so when I do, I really like to make sure they’re comfortable. This room was a little tough because I couldn’t fit a bed in here bigger than a full. I don’t like cramped spaces so I wanted to make sure I kept it spacious and open. I went with just a headboard and a 14” frame, found a mattress on amazon and the acrylic console I posted a few days ago. All the purple decor is actually from my master a few years ago. I kept a deep purple and golden-ish theme in my room for quite some time until I finally got bored of it. Luckily, not only was I able to make use of all these things, but this is a color that doesn’t go out of style 💜 What are you guys planning for the holidays? Are you expecting guests? I’d love to know any little tips!
It’s Thursday, and you know what that means - time for an ORC room makeover update! #sponsored We’re hard at work giving my in-laws’ living room a much needed facelift and today’s post on the blog is all about one thing: PAINT.
Head over to read about all the progress we’ve made and a few concerns we have... there’s always something with remodels, right?! Hey, at least we got this new chandelier hung! ;)
Link in my stories, friends.
A big thank you to @frogtape for sponsoring this wonderful room makeover! Be sure to grab their painter’s tape for your next painting project!⠀
Work room makeover.
I live in a house built in 1907 it's got some great historical value but it's also in pretty bad disrepair, some would call this character, I don't sugar coat things. We moved in at the end of December and I've been waging war on the house ever since. It unfortunately was "updated around 1974 and is now full of cheap faux wood paneling in all but two rooms. The upstairs bathroom and my workroom. I've spent several months coming to terms with the paneling and largely solved that problem with artwork hung on every available inch of wall in the living room and a complete disregard for the kitchen walls. My work room however was a problem. I need to hang things on the wall for work purposes but they don't really cover up the mess and it can't be hygienic, so with the hand injuries from last week keeping me from wirework and knitting I felt this was as good a time as any to get the mess handled. Also please check out that ceiling line, I'm 5'5" and that lower wall/ceiling juncture hits roughly at my chin
Meet: Kaitlyn 💚💙
Kaitlyn is the first recipient for #sgbdCentralTexas chapter! Here’s a little more of Kaitlyn’s Story:
In Sept of 2011, just as her father began his 4th tour overseas with the US Army, Kaitlyn began her own journey. By Thanksgiving, doctors had found a tumor in her abdomen. By that Friday, the original diagnosis of #lymphoma had changed, as Kaitlyn and her family were told that she had stage 3 group 3 Embryonal #Rhabdomyosarcoma
Due to the severity, the location and the size of her tumor, no doctor in the country would perform surgery on Kaitlyn. That December, Kaitlyn’s father returned from Afghanistan and Kaityln began #chemotherapy
Between kidney failure, surgeries, time in the ICU, chemo burns, and additional tumors, Kaitlyn has been the epitome of #resiliency . She is proving cancer wrong day after day and #savvygiving CAN’T WAIT to give her a new room!
You can DONATE NOW via link in bio! 💚💙
Our refinished table & chairs has been begging for new wall decor. And we finally found the saying we wanted to stand out loud and clear in the center of our home. Grateful for @rorismom of @westleyandbuttercups creating this large farmhouse-style sign! If you haven’t yet, you should head over to her Instagram page and check out her signs! She also does custom work and she ships!!! #refinished#farmhousestyle#madenew#chalkpaint#roommakeover#anniesloanchalkpaint#generalfinishes
I am so excited at the moment because I am currently planning to completely move my room to another part of the house and re-design it!
I will be posting about it on my blog when it is done, so go and sign up to my email subscription to me notified about that! I am also doing a 30-day blog challenge in November, so you don’t want to miss that! (Link in bio)

Happy #humpday Everyone✨✨✨✨ .
I promised I’d reveal the room redo for @aryahedmond ‘s #sweet16 , but I’m not quite ready to show it all so here’s just a sneak peak of what we did with it!!! This is my favorite part of the room and she calls it her #hobblobby corner lol, but for me it represents the peace that I wanted to create for her internally by decluttering her space and presenting positivity for her to open her eyes to each day!!
We have to be careful with our words and our thoughts because they are so powerful that they can completely alter the direction of your path, creating an uproar and chaos chartered between your internal self and your external circumstances. PROTECT YOUR PEACE!
The complete reveal coming soon with some before and after shots as interior design and personal styling will be bullet points added to my list of services I provide💪🏽 so stay tuned (and yes she chose white👀)

•SCANDI CHIC • is this even my home ? I can’t have this Scandi, minimalist style in my barn conversion it’s far too modern 🤷♀️. Well actually I can now in my makeover of the snug room as it’s going more modern. You can mix styles up in your home you’ve just got to work out how it all flows. I know what I mean and when it’s all finished- so will you. I like experimenting with different styles rather than stick to one colour or style throughout the house . Anyone else with me on this one ? The tall grey vase is John Rocha from @debenhams £20. The white vase @tkmaxx bargain at £5.99 and the small one last season @nextofficial sale £3 . So all affordable and from the high street ..
Good morning troops! Tomorrow is the big reveal of our new look bedroom in partnership with @duluxirl. It's a gorgeous restful space, but lordy, it's still not easy to hop out of the bed in the mornings. If anyone has the secret to bouncing out of bed can you send me a DM? I pinkie swear it will be our secret!
