Ready for another Dreamy Dwelling Home Tour — how about a Chic Home Makeover!? You are in for such a treat! Jamie from So Much Better with Age is sharing her 80s home and she has made it her goal to makeover every inch of her house until it is unrecognizable from that era. She totally succeeded — check it out!
I’m a stay-at-home mama to two beautiful kids. I love DIY and making my home beautiful for less. I’m also a vintage and french decor lover!
This is our foyer. It’s quite large and I love decorating it with vintage and French finds. You can tell I love a neutral palette!
We had a lot of renovations done in our house starting in our living room. A large wall was taken down to join in with the rest of our main floor.
Our living room now adjoins our family room and it really just opened up the whole space.
Most of my finds throughout the house are from Craigslist, Home Sense, antique markets, or curbside. This couch I scored from Craigslist then had reupholstered.
In the kitchen we added glass door fronts to the upper cabinets and painted the cupboards white. We also replaced all the hardware.
We added granite to make a bar area and took down the upper cabinets.
Here is the kitchen eating area with our newest light addition.
The main floor powder room was gutted of all 80s decor like linoleum flooring and a tub/shower combo. I opted for a clawfoot tub and checker tile. Goodbye 80s!
If you follow my blog, you’ll know that my dining room has been a work in process. I have many projects lined up for this fall!
My sweet baby girl’s nursery was a joy to decorate! I think it’s the only time I can paint a room pink without my hubby batting an eye.
Our master bedroom is a work in process as well but I’d like to know whose house isn’t?
And, yes, I love Paris! Our master ensuite was built from the ground up. If you can believe it, we stole square footage from our master bedroom! Our bedroom was huge!
Another major project we took on was the “crawlspace”. We turned this low-ceiling basement into a playroom/man cave.
Here’s the man cave side.
And here’s the playroom side. The kids love playing in this low height area.
Lastly, here is a peek at our laundry room. I’m in the midst of some projects in here as well. It seems like my list of projects is never-ending but that’s what makes it fun!
French doors in the laundry room lead to our back deck and grassy yard. Perfect for when kids are coming into the house with muddy feet!
Isn’t Jamie’s house beautiful! I love deep wood tones mixed with creams and whites! Stop by So Much Better with Age often for lots of amazing home decor inspiration!
