A DIY Home Tour

Hi ya'll!

Today, I'm having you over to give you a tour of our current apartment. When we first moved here in December, I was all for decorating everything, but after we bought our home, I stopped dumping money into our rental, and have been itching to begin on our own home! So excited!

As you will see below, we make all of our decor. I enjoy it because it's our own, and it's fun working on DIY projects-even when you completely screw it up more often than not :)


Living room:

We made the chevron canvases, and then found lamps that matched them exactly!

 DIY Wedding Coasters
 DIY frame of the rose Kyle proposed with

Dining Room:

I've always hated this table, so it made it better to upholster the stools..still can't wait to say bye to it.


Kitchen:
Painted EAT letters


My corner:
One of my favorite DIY's and most practical


Well, this is probably the most practical:
Our floating bed Kyle built. 


DIY Headboard. We also made a bedskirt with the same fabric to cover the box spring. 

Stripes in our bedroom 


My favorite spot in our place. I call it my encouragement wall. I slowly gathered every print and bought the frames at IKEA.


Guest Bedroom:

The only good thing about the bathroom:

  1. I love all the DIY! For your necklaces is that DIY already on your blog? I'd love to copy it. And the Parisian print in your guest room... where did you find it?

  2. Nicholl! I want those freakin stripes in our new condo, but Randall thinks it'll take too much time! Any suggestions on how to convince him?

    Your apartment is beautiful with all the DIY projects. You've given me some ideas for our own place! I hope you do more of these posts because I need all the help I can get!

    I can't wait to see all you do with the new house!

  3. Love all of it! Dying to know...is that a purple couch, if so where did you find it?! This girl needs one!

  4. I am LOVING all your DIY projects!! Especially the chevron canvases and encouraging prints! I used to have a canopy hanging above my bed like you do in your guest room... but when I kept waking up wrapped/trapped in it because I tore it from the ceiling while sleeping, I decided to let it go. Happy Thursday, sweet girl!

  5. I love all your DIY projects! Wow, they make your apartment so much more inviting. If you ever want to sell it, they literally won't need to stage anything in your house. I especially love the kitchen and the print wall. So inspiring!

  27. I loveeee your the framed prints.
    Beautiful!
    Hubs and I bought our house 3 months ago and it's been a challenge to get things done around here.
    We can't wait until it's all decorated and ours.

    Also, we never bothered decorating our apartment because we knew it was temporary and I couldn't wait to get out of that place!

  28. This is so great!!! I love that you guys have made things together to make your place "your own". I also love the carving of initials in the bed frame---so cute!!

  30. This is all so cute, I can't even believe it. I will be copying the EAT in the kitchen in my next place. I made my own headboard just like that, too! I was surprised how easy it was and how much it changes the whole room. Thanks for sharing, you've given me so many ideas!
