Since it’s been so cold and snowing (which is crazy for Atlanta- as I’m sure you’ve heard) I have been stuck in my house much more than usual. This has lead to me becoming one of those crazy people who watches HGTV and is constantly on furniture websites and DIY blogs. My husband and I have never really had a nice house like this before, nor have we been able to furnish by picking out our own pieces. We’ve been moving the same hand-me-downs into weird little rentals for years. So when we moved into my old childhood home, I knew I wanted to really make it look different from how it did when I was a kid, and I wanted to really make it our place. Here are a few of the somewhat finished areas of the downstairs that we just finished. (If you’ve ever re-done your house, you know it’s kind of never fully finished!) I’m bummed I did not take “before” pictures, as it looked completely different!
My husband and I really wanted a homey, grown-up feel but with lots of whimsy and fun (we’re kind of hippies at heart, if you can’t tell.) We had inherited so much stuff that was black, white, and red- which was great for a few years, but we really wanted to add a lot of color into our super-beige and neutral house.
Where I got some pieces:
Living Room: Rug, coffee table and map art are all from overstock.com. The couches are super comfy, and from Rooms-To-Go scracth & dent. The new built-in bookshelves and the funky accent chair are from Ikea. Pillows, blanket, curtains, and red table all on sale at Target. The rest is from Homegoods, thrifted, and random finds.
Eat-in kitchen: My husband made our farmhouse table, and I stained and painted it. A Pinterest success! The chairs are Ikea, and the baker’s rack is Target.
Foyer: The art was a wedding gift, and the sticks are my wedding centerpieces repurposed! The mirror is from Pier One, and the red cabinet is Target as well.

If you want to keep up, I post a lot of my projects on Instagram! You can also stay up to date on Facebook and see what ideas I’ve got coming up in my Pinterest boards. :)
