Good morning and Happy New Year! We are getting back into the swing of things around here with school starting back up and (most of) the Christmas decor packed away. I may still need to take the tree down, but who’s keeping track?

Today I wanted to take a few minutes to look back on some of our favorite projects we shared here on the blog in 2019. We rang in 2019 by having our sewer line replaced and decided to go ahead and tackle our laundry room and guest bath that are connected to that line (we have two sewer lines running from the house).
We were on a tight budget and refinished both spaces for a total of $1,000.
Farmhouse Style Laundry Room
We started by removing some cabinets and stacking our washer and dryer so we could finally open the bathroom door all the way. We painted, changed out the door leading to the bathroom, and replaced the light fixture. You can read about the full makeover and see before pictures by checking out the post here.
Guest Bathroom Makeover
If you haven’t seen the before pictures of this space, you need to hop on over to the original post here.
Can you say WALLPAPER? It was seriously so ugly! Add in the yellow countertop and yikes. It gave me a panic attack just walking in there. Kidding…maybe.
Eric textured the walls and we painted the walls and vanity. Eric removed the countertop and replaced it with wood. We gave the paneling a board and batten look (you can check out that DIY here) and added some accent tile.
We decided on antique brass and love how it looks with the gray cabinets. Eric tiled over our outdated linoleum flooring (yes you can do that!) with a beautiful marble mosaic tile and you can read about that project here.
Modern Farmhouse Kitchen
Our kitchen was another project done on a tight budget. We spent about $700 or so to give every surface a facelift. I had the privilege of working with Cutting Edge Stencils for our floors (check out that project here) and Instant Granite for our countertops (you can see that DIY here).
We painted the walls and cabinets (I’ll be sharing a tutorial on that soon), added new hardware and updated the lighting. We replaced the faucet and gave our sink a facelift which you can read about here.
Eric subway tiled our backsplash and did a great job! We also gave our peninsula a shiplap look for less than $25 and you can read about the project and see the video here.
Farmhouse Style Entryway
The last space I’m sharing is our entryway. We gave it a quick and affordable update right before Christmas and while we still have more to do, it really made a difference.
We changed out the lighting, painted the banister, and added handles to the barn doors.
2020 Home Projects
It was a busy year of projects and we have more fun projects planned for 2020! We started in on transforming our kids’ playroom into a game room now that they’re getting older and I’ll share that soon. We also plan to finish our back living room and adding shiplap to our stairwell and entryway.
I’ll also continue sharing DIY ideas and our favorite recipes and more! Thank you for following along our journey, I appreciate the time you take to read these posts! May 2020 be your best year yet! Blessings!
