It sounds painful, but for this seen-better-days antique dresser, the herringbone treatment was a step to its resurrection. Other therapy included repairing, stripping, and staining. Finally, it was topped off with some gorgeousContinue Reading
This makeover might be a head-scratcher for some. I mean, there wasn't anything necessarily wrong with the kitchen "before." And, as a matter of fact, I'm sure it was some peoples' idea of a dream kitchen. It wasn't, however, its owners' idea of a dream kitchen. With the help of designer Becki Owens, they ditched the Tuscan vibe completely. Professionally sprayedContinue Reading
Who doesn't enjoy a good before and after? This bathroom is no exception. It started out as a space that was lackluster and plain. And now? It couldn't look more different - not to mention how much BIGGER the space feels! It gives off a very serene and spa-like vibe.
We believe the only thing better than a stunning kitchen upgrade is one that involves a lot of DIYs. We've been following along as our friend David from ManMadeDIY gives his kitchen a light, quick update that's packing a big punch. And, while new appliances from Frigidaire Professional are certainly lending a shiny, new look (and function!) to the space, he has squeezed in a number of attainable DIYs that anyone can tackle. Follow along with us below!

Reporter Ronan Farrow's new high rise apartment was in desperate need of personality - it didn't have any unique features or memorable characteristics. But that was about to change. Click through to see the stunning transformation.
So, I'll admit it. I have a really hard time throwing things away or letting things go. I'm not quite "hoarder" status, but I'm sure if I don't start getting rid of unused pieces in my home soon, my friends and family will start to talk. Am I the only one? (Please say no!!).
Take, for example, my neglected chair. It was my very first furniture purchase that I scored in the As-Is section of IKEA when I first moved out for college TWELVE years ago! And I almost gathered the courage to get rid of it until a light bulb went on in my head. This guy didn't need to get ditched, it just needed a makeover. So, I decided to go all out and have a little fun.
You spend almost 1/3 of your life in the bedroom sleeping. So why not make that space something colorful, cheerful, and down right fun to spend time in?! Here are 10 colorful bedrooms that range from soft and sweet to bright and bold!
If you've ever thought about adding built-in shelves to an existing space, this might be the before and after that convinces you to finally take the plunge. You'll have to click through to see what a difference wall to wall shelving can make. It's quite the transformation.
This is, hands down, one of the coolest DIY desk ideas I've seen in a while. Sure, industrial pipes, trestle legs, and the occasional hairpin-leg-plus-plywood desk are all great projects. But what if you could up the ante with a custom epoxy tabletop? Here's how to do it -- the easy way! Continue Reading

Sara and Charlie's Nashville house may not actually have been the "ugliest house ever", but it was certainly at the top of the goofy list, and it DID need a makeover. The remarkable part of this story isn't even how lovely their home looks "after." Really! The astonishing part isContinue Reading
We started from the bottom, now we're here: the 29th Avenue master bedroom makeover REVEAL! As a refresher, this is what we began with. Blech. Just... no. Obviously this dark and dreary and totally lame bedroom wasn't going to cut it. Fast forward a few weeks and THIS is where we are now: Continue Reading
We bought the 29th Avenue house at the end of 2013 and have been slowly giving this 1920s bungalow a facelift, room by room: first the bathroom, then the office, and now the master bedroom! The previous owners had painted every room in, apparently, the darkest colors they could find. Considering our home has tiny rooms, even smaller windows, and we live in Cloud City, USA aka Portland, the dark and dismal vibes just weren't going to cut it. So, "Operation Cheer Up" was born.

It's officially National Painting Week - one of our favorite times of the year, because paint is, well, magical. You just wave a magic wand (ahem, I mean...brush), and it transforms rooms like nothing else. It's a powerful feeling, holding so much potential in your hand, wielding that brush and roller like a wizard. Kazaaap!
For this year's project we focused on the bonus room of our house: the porch. The truth is, we are porch people. That soft summer air drifting through the screens, the cool fall nights lounging with friends, the sunset on city streets. That’s what your porch is for, and if you have one, you know how lucky you are. Read on to see how we transformed ours.
