Updated House Tour!!!

I cannot believe that this past weekend marked 8 months in our home!! It’s crazy how quickly time is flying. Although we still have a lot left to do (almost the entire 2nd level, basement, add wainscoting to dining room, paint foyer and living room, etc) I wanted to recap the projects that we’ve tackled thus far through an updated house tour!


When you first enter our home, you are welcomed into our foyer. I love the two-story entry!




Dining Room

The dining room has become one of my favorite transformations. Click here to see how far this room has actually come. I am still on the lookout for the perfect server to go the back wall.




Living Room

Our living room sits in the front of the house and gets the most amazing sunlight! Lots of fun projects coming this summer in this room!



Family Room

If you ask Mr. H what his favorite room makeover has been so far, he’d say the family room. Remember him tearing down the old built-in in the corner?  I am also sooo glad there’s no more stucco on the walls! Click here to see more on this transformation.






We were so fortunate that the kitchen was in great shape when we moved in! Just a few decorative touches and the space feels like a continuation of the family room.






Powder Room

Now THIS is where my hands got really dirty! From tearing out old fixtures to patching walls, I pulled out the stops in this room. Click here to read more on one of my favorite weekend makeovers.

Laundry Room

I actually really enjoy doing laundry in our new laundry room! It’s so bright and cheery 🙂 Thanks, mom, for helping me organize the space! Click here to read more.



Master Bedroom

I painted the vaulted ceilings!! I know that this may not sound like much of an accomplishment, but 5’2″ me is proud! I am loving the way this room is coming together. It’s been such a wonderful place to retreat to at the end of a long day. Not shown is our en suite master bathroom which is home to the most relaxing soaking tub you could imagine. More touches in this room coming soon!




Guest Bathroom     

Haven’t done much here yet– simply accessorized with some old favorites from our former apartment. Is is so nice to give guests a space of their own. Click here to see progress on our guest bedroom which is currently being made over!



Back Yard

Serene, private, oasis = three words I’d use to describe our backyard. We love entertaining out here. Whether we’re roasting s’mores in our fire pit, reading in my natural garden canopy, watching the frogs and turtles in our pond, or keeping an eye out for a family of deer, you can guarantee that when the sun is shining that this is where you’ll find us.

Oh that last picture? Yea, that was the  bear that visited us last fall.  Next outdoor project is a fence!!!


Ahh..having all of these photos in one place makes me realize how much we’ve accomplished! (Go us!) I can’t wait to get started on the rest of the house. Thanks for following me this far 🙂

    • Thank you!! We were shocked to see the bear too! We moved from the city out to the country and I guess the bear wanted to welcome us to the neighborhood 🙂

  1. What a cozy home! Looks great! And I’m absolutely drooling over your backyard. You just don’t see yards like that in good ole’ packed-like-sardines Fort Worth. 🙂

  2. Your home is SO lovely Tanisha!!! LOVE the dining room curtains and you back yard is gorgeous!!! You’ve done an amazing job so far and I can’t wait to see what’s next!
    PS. Being only 5′ myself, I can’t imagine painting a vaulted ceiling … way to go!!!

  3. Your home is absolutely beautiful and it’s so inspiring that all of this was created in only 8 short months! We’ve been living in our home for about a year and a half now and have yet to tackle anything major. Great job!!

  4. WHat a beautiful home you have! And I LOVE your dining room and am now obsessed with your curtains. Where did you get them? We’ve been in our home almost two years now (coming up in late June) and it’s been driving me crazy that it’s not “done” yet. I’m glad I’m not the only one who still has work (and an upstairs) to do. 🙂

    • Thank you so much!! Our curtains are from Pier 1 in the style “Midnight Floral” I was stalking them for about 6 or 7 months as the 96″ panels I needed were out of stock online forever!!

  5. Love your style and choice of colors. Really enjoyed the house tour. Kinda freaked out at the end with that bear. It seems so CLOSE to your home. You must have been terrified! Thanks for sharing the home tour.

  6. I can’t believe how much progress you’ve made in such a short time! I feel like a turtle by comparison! Great job so far. Thank you for sharing at What We Accomplished Wednesdays. Have a great week! ~Deborah
