Switching things up a bit and doing a home post today. Our house has come a long way! We’ve almost completely redone the inside minus the bathrooms and the vaulted wood ceiling. But by far one of my favorite transformations was our kitchen! @rustoleum Cabinet Transformation Kit, some new hardware, 3 days, 2-5 people and voila! But it all realness it was so much work and totally worth it!
We did it 🏠👨‍👩‍👧❤️#makingahouseourhome #littlefamily #bestfeeling @jpearce19891
Boring house post..but can’t believe how nice this has turned out from what it was before 👌🔨 #makingahouseourhome #hardworkpaysoffs #homerenovations #homeinteriors
Between new baby, moving, school ending, camping, family visiting, church ministries...I feel like it's been awhile since my head was above water for long. While the sleepless nights continue, #jcottprincess2 is getting more independent during the day, allowing me to get things done without her in my arms. Leaving each stage of babyhood is bittersweet. But this mom is happy to watch them grow. #jcottsiblings #makingahouseourhome #growingupsofast
A little sneak peak for my friends 😀 PROGRESS at the #Wilberryhouse 🏠 #makingahouseourhome
**NOS DA** I just needed to show off Henry’s bedroom colour again 😍. It’s so dark and cosy in his room I wish I could just curl up in there too. Also... NEVER use @frogtape !!! What a ball ache! It ripped half the bloody paint off around the edges so I’ve had to go back over it and cut in again 😑 #pileofshit it’s the 2nd room I’ve used it in and each wall has needed to be done again. We are nearly there guys! It’s nearly FRIDAY!! #shakeyourtits . . . . . . . . #harrypotter #hp #uptonogood #welsh #english #newbuildlove #cosy #decor #familyhome #beautiful #instahomes #homeinspo #house #home #bedroomgoals #interior123 #homestyle #livingroominspo #livingroomdecor #homedecor #interior4all #interior4you #homedemo #ensuite #newbuildjourney #makingahouseourhome #bedroom #babyboy
Y’all I had a dream I was moving last night. It was more like a nightmare. Our move to Roanoke almost a year ago was our 10th move in 23 years. That means moving an average of every 2.3 years. I think reliving the moving trauma was triggered by the direction I’m going on the blog tomorrow. I’ve been writing and writing. I’m going to take you room by room in our house. Share my crazy to-do lists made during sleepless nights before and after we moved. Share my progress (or lack there of) as I tried to make this house our home. Letting you in my head and sharing how I attempted to prioritize an entire house makeover. Why? 1. I love to share the process. 2. I think you are here because this is of interest to you. 3. I want to inspire YOU! So happy that was a dream and I’m not moving. Have a great day! . . . #dcw365 #blogging #movingnightmare #somanymoves #militaryfamily #nomoremoves #retired #rooted #hometour #inprogress #makeityours #homesweethome #mystylishspace #makingahome #redecorating #reimagining #rethinking #somuchpaint #somuchpainting #makingahouseahome #makingahouseourhome #makingprogress #simpledecor #modernfarmhouse #mybhg #mybhghome #mysouthernliving

#omg #makingahouseourhome #newkitchen #kitchendiner #knockingdownwalls #themess #justdecorated didn't expect to have a hole in my front room I've just spent a fortune on!
I love photos and was so glad to find these 💙❤️💗 . . . #photos #memories #ourbabies #notsosmallanymore #shelfstyling #makingahouseourhome #finishingtouches
I found yet another box we hadn’t unpacked (I’m sure they’re multiplying!) but this was a lovely one to open as I found Macy’s feet casting, which we had done when she was six weeks old...they are so teeny! Oh and her big toe isn’t missing, she has just bent it back at a funny angle 😄 . . . #babysfeet #tinytoes #shelfstyling #willtheunpackingeverend #interiors #makingahouseourhome
I can't believe what we have achieved in just 3 and half days. I am so proud of us and so proud of our beautiful home ♥ we managed to move everything in just with the two of us, the bruises, scratches and tiredness is real but it was so worth it! We've been through good and bad, and through the bad you've held me tighter and said everything will be alright, well bubba you were right 💞 can't wait to continue to make it a home 🏡 . . . #makingahome #makingahouseahome #makingahouseourhome #makinghomehappen #makinghomebeautiful #beautifulhomes #beautifulhouse #earlydays #justmovedin #newfurniture #newhomejourney #newhoneowners #newbuildhouse #newbuild #newbuildadventure #newbuilddream #dreambig #dreamtoreality #interior #interiorideas #interiorstyle #feelingproud
Loving these window boxes! #Homeowners #HouseProjects #MakingAHouseOurHome
The thing about organizing is you have to get everything out first. 😲😳🙈 Tackling toys today and getting them in bins, boxes, and baskets. Can you tell we love super heroes in our house? #organizeitall #kidroomdecluttering #makingahouseourhome
Todays accomplishment 😊 #makingahouseourhome
Garden update 🌻 it's still not finished 😏 I feel like I've bought and planted about 10136 plants so how am I not done 😂 We've got 4 tonnes of top soil being delivered next week so we can finish the neglected side of the garden and level the rest off. Then we can grass seed and hopefully we'll have a finished garden just in time for the end of summer 😅 It'll all be worth it 🤞 #gardenupdate #stillgardening #diygarden #countrygarden #colourmyhome #gardeninspo #plantsforbees #flowersforbees #beefriendlygarden #familygarden #newbuildgarden #flowers #greenfingers #notatrendfollower #sunnyday #summer2018 #2018heatwave #mystylishhome #mygorgeousgaff #mycolourfulhome #makingahouseourhome #yorkshire #fionashome
about a month ago, michael & i chose this cast-iron ‘centerpiece’ for our railing. then michael found the log spindles to match the room.. and yesterday my honey and dad were able to put everything together 😍 we still have to stain and add some other finishing touches, BUT it is up & i love it 😊💕 . . . #makingahouseourhome #blessed #diy #diyhomedecor #diyrailing #rustic #countryliving #lifeontheriver #riversideliving #oneprojectatatime #happyhomeowneranniversary
My evening routine has been to water our thirsty garden....it takes me back to my childhood, of my father lovingly tending his garden #hotsummer #flowers #garden #britishsummer #makingahouseourhome #quietmoments #mindful
Because coffee is everything......it got it’s own little space in our new house. #coffecorner #coffeebar #makingahouseourhome #alittlebitofcoffeeandawholelotofjesus
•thank you scott for finally hanging the shelf in the bathroom...now i get to decorate it• 🌿🏡 🛀 #makingahouseourhome @decorsteals @strongwillsdad
Knot in maple wood being preserved with resin by @bdwait. He’s amazing for making our design dreams come true. Soon to be a bathroom vanity countertop. #bathroomremodel #makingahouseourhome #diy
my latest home decor purchase, can’t wait to hang it up 😍 . . #homedecor #makingahouseourhome #homesweethome #lovemylittlehouse #lovegrows #cozy
#tgif Even though I’m a stay at home mom I still get excited for the weekend. ☺️🤗 #cheerstotheweekend #diyhomedecor #farmhouseinspired #makingahouseourhome #oneprojectatatime #fixerupperlife
The finishing fluorish for my baby girl’s room: GOLD KNOBS! #happy #diymom #redecorating #makingahouseourhome
So pleased how the kitchen tiles turned out! Definetely makes the kitchen more brighter! They are so shiny 😍😍!! #taylorwimpeyhomes #chalmers2 #newbuildjourney #kitcheninspo #newtiles #flamingolove #happyweekend #chalmers #taylorwimpey #makingahouseourhome
First night in our new house last night! Still have so much to do. But it’s cozy and beautiful and peaceful. #grateful #grace #makingahouseourhome
The crazy #diymom is at it again! Why be a plain Jane when you are a star? #lovemydaughter #beastar #stronggirls #redecorating #makingahouseourhome
When you just can’t cope with the dogs shedding their coats on the carpet in the snug......you do the logical thing and rip it out! (And my word - what gorgeous floorboards were hiding underneath 💙🤩) #makingahouseourhome #projectsnug #redecorating #crazydiymom
That satisfaction when you find an unexpected bargain....our ikea bed lamps have lasted so well, but a chunky, industrial wooden frame completely wins the day. #happyshopper #happyhusband #makingahouseourhome
Working on my living room! I know it’s silly, but I am so proud of it. I have a VERY tight budget and still packed a punch. Still need to finish the small details, and one big one (a new NONWHITE rug!!), but I am so in love. #aspiringdesigner #icandothis #onedayillhaveaHUGEbudget #illgocrazy #interiorstyling #thehappyhomebyjennieleigh . . . . .. .... #aspiringdesigner #aspiringinteriordesigner #livingroomgoals #interiorstyling #interiordesign #interiordecorating #decoratingideas #dreams #goals #homeiswheretheheartis #loveyourhome #makingahouseourhome #sprinkleyourmagic
Is it just me or when your kids are home you have more frequent visits to the grocery store 😩 But I’m enjoying being able to sleep in. If you look closely but not too close you’ll see where I had to repair the backs of my chairs (and a nerf gun bullet 🤦🏽‍♀️ boymom) Just need to paint them now but that’ll probably take me another two weeks lol. Happy baby Friday. A day closer to the weekend 🎊🤗🍹#diyhomedecor #farmhouseinspired #makingahouseourhome #oneprojectatatime
So we put our first piece of furniture into our finished Reno house and I almost cried. My babe deserved to have his leather chair in his new office be the first after working his butt off to make this happen. So excited to get all moved in and enjoy our new home! #makingahouseourhome #reno #renovation #firsttimerenovators #thesearethepromises #soberstories #recoveryisworthit
our bathroom has trim 😍😍 another room, complete! ✔️ . . . #oneprojectatatime #homerenos #makingahouseourhome #blessed #trim #bathroomtrim #goldaccents #ontothenext
Our new place has a water closet; and it featured an almost entirely glass door. The previous owner’s solution was a curtain to pull across but mine is window film that looks like frost. I bought two rolls from @homedepot and brought over a cutting mat, #xactoknife and metal ruler. It took about an hour and a half to do all the panes. I could not be more pleased with the outcome; plenty of light but also privacy. #onadime #diylife #makingahouseourhome #simplechanges
Our little garden is coming together thanks to @mownandgrownmaintenance for using his skills and to my big brother @mumma_make_up_scene for giving up his Saturday #makingahouseourhome #firsthouse #ours #2018goals
One of the first projects we did to our home was the paint color! It took us weeks to figure it out. There’s so many options 🤷🏻‍♀️ all I wanted was the shutters to be dark. ::::swipe left to see the before:::: #makingahouseourhome #homesweethome #homeowners #home #homeremodel #love #garden #roses #livermoreblogger #homeblogger
The sales rep showed me round a completed plot at the weekend and I was able to get a cheeky snap of our finished roof 🙈😍🏠 The stud walls and stairs went in yesterday it's starting to feel real!! #newbuild #foreverhome #secondtimebuyers #bellwayalder #bellwayyorkshire #thealder #makingahouseourhome #bellwayhomes #bellwaynewbuild #newbuildjourney #july26th
So every time I go to Lowes I make a B- line for the clearance flower section and I’m rarely disappointed. This time these sweet $8 (regularly $18) lavender colored mini roses leapt into my buggy and said hello. Lo and behold here they are back at da house blooming away and struttin’ their stuff... so my husband cannot say one bad word about our collaboration. Dontcha jus love it when this happens?!? It’s a win-win-win situation, may I get an AMEN? I mean only IF you’re in agreement with this fellow flower lover? 🥀 * * * * * #flowersandfaithfriday #whitecottage #smallaccount #emptynesters #newaccountswelove #newgardener #newgardens #minirosebush #loweshomeimprovement #lowesclearance #makingahouseourhome #flowergardening #countrydecor #countrydesign #cottagehome #homeinspiration #gatherlove #frenchcottagefarmcountry #myflowers #countrylife #simplywhite #charmingcottage #simplicity_features #decor_elements #garden_lovers #country_life #decornewbiesunite
Celebration time 🍾🎉 it’s finally done! All the little details make this a dream come to life. Our first renovation project in our new home, and it’s perfection.
Been a bit quiet. We moved in on Friday and it’s been a bit full on since. Our kitchen fitter turned out to be total waste of space and have spent the whole weekend finding and then correcting his work. We are exhausted and living amongst boxes. Going to take it a bit slower over the next few weeks #houserenovation #itsabitofafixerupper #makingahouseourhome #1930houseproject #kitchen #badworkmen #firsttimemistakes #moving #newhousemovinghouse

Found this gem from 1973 at an antique store in Stillwater today! Thought it was only necessary for our kitchen considering we got married in part of the old Pillsbury factory ❤️ #makingahouseourhome
My son’s closet was in desperate need of storage and organization. 📚🚜⚽️🏈 When his shelf got pulled off the wall a couple of weeks ago I took it as a good time to redo the whole thing. Target had the shelves and bins on clearance yesterday so again...a sign to just do the thing. Here’s the before’s and after’s. 🙌🏻 I started putting it all in the closet and realized it would also be the perfect time to paint, so out it all came and that happened too! Yay for leftover paint and a fun Friday project! #DIYproject #makingahouseourhome
It’s official!! We are homeowners!! We signed all 639 pages of our final paperwork & got the deed to our house today! It’s crazy where we were 2 years ago as individuals and where God has brought us to today. This. Is. Crazy. #soberstories #recoveryisworthit #recoverystories #thesearethepromises #makingahouseourhome #itsofficial #sobrietyisworthit #butgod #graceupongrace
I've not posted in ages as i like to show a "big" difference not all the touching up and fluffing of pillows inbetween....all this stuff I had at the old house 🏚 but the picture frames never made an appearance and the clock ⏲always rested on a shelf without a battery...finally getting my new home office sorted 🙌 (still no battery and no pictures in the frames 🤷🏼) I've still got 4 pegboards to put up and titivate but swipe right ---> to see the space before and my previous home office. #renovation #renovating #diy #beforeandafter #newhome #newhouse #makingahouseourhome #makingahouseahome #instahome #instainspo #instadecor #homedecor #homeinspo #instahome #homeoffice #homeofficeinspo #dulux #purebrilliantwhite #copper #copperdecor #ikea #ikeahack
BEFORE ... Swipe 👈🏼 for AFTER - Our cosy dining room 😍 So glad to see the back of that ugly ass floor! #makingahouseourhome #renovation #housetohome #homeimprovements #beforeandafter
BEFORE ... Swipe 👈🏼 for AFTER - Kitchen is now done.... phew!!! It’s been hard having a building site for a kitchen, but it’s all part of the fun 😁 #makingahouseourhome #housetohome #renovation #newhome #inlove #kitchen #sheffield #beforeandafter
We move in tomorrow. One room totally painted. Fireplace still to go. It’s been a long, expensive and awfully fun 3 months. A lot of work still to go. #houserenovation #itsabitofafixerupper #porjecthouse #houseproject #1930houseproject #1930house #movingday #newstart #makingahouseourhome #makingourhouse #doingitourselves #newhouse
Happy Friday Eve. House is nice and clean and ready for the weekend. Cue the adult beverages lol 😜☺️🍷🍻#happythursday #diyhomedecor #farmhouseinspired #makingahouseourhome #oneprojectatatime #fixerupperlife
So the this is the only room in the house we didn’t do! Our ensuite before we decided to move the plan was to completely rip out everything! As having a radiator next to a toilet isn’t a good idea, the previous owner obviously didn’t think this through. It is so dated and just doesn’t work! #homeimprovement #smalleyproject #ensuitebathroom #ensuite #dateddecor #whenismovingday #makingahouseourhome #myinterior #mystyle #number21 #ourfirsthouse #familyhome #renovation
Can you believe it's the last day of May already?!! In just over a week we would've been in our home for 1 year. I can't get over how fast the last 12 months have gone and how much we have achieved in the house and garden. I've been looking back at old photos this morning, it's hard to remember it being all white, shiny and new. I loved it then but I love it even more now 🏡 #mygorgeousgaff #wemadeithome #colourfulhomes #familyhome #mystylishhome #makingahouseourhome #interiordesign #homeaccount #myhomeandgarden #kitchenstyling #kitchenshelfie #stylingmyhomemyway #ownyourdecor #feelingproud #weresolucky #lifeafterthearmy #ourforeverhome #yorkshire #fionashome
We’ve done a lot of things “backwards” as far as our kids milestones go lol. Example: Finley switched to a big boy bed when he was 18ish months, but our kids have always shared a room. I still very much believe that room sharing has been wonderful for our two. They have loved it and are truly best buds (I think, in part, because of it). However, with their sleeping patterns changing and the extra space in our new home, it has been easier to separate them some for naps/quiet time. We have an extra mattress we will keep in Stella’s floor so they can have sleepovers together whenever we allow it (😂), but here is Finley’s official new space. I did not chose the paint color but it will work for now. . . . . #ontothenextroom #newhousenewroom #firstbedroom #lifewithlittles #oldfamilyquilt #makingahouseourhome #oneillhomerenovations
