Week 1: Design Planning

Week 2: Room Prep

We bought the faux brick panels at our local home improvement store, and installed them on one wall in the bedroom. Then we painted the entire room -including the faux brick accent wall. I wanted the brick to be the focal point of the room, and I wanted it to feel like the side of an old building, so I had and Ulrich Hotel logo designed for the occasion. Follow my progress to see more details.

I incorporated the Made With Love design trend into my guest bedroom makeover.  See the full details of the makeover here.

Week 2: Room Prep

We had originally planned to go a little lighter with the nook, but after discovering the drop ceiling we decided to highlight the wood and have it be the lighter element. That meant darkening the walls and keeping the contrast with crisp paint lines.  We are also adding book shelves to this wall, and we love using FrogTape® for visualizing elements we plan to add to a space. When we were happy with the spacing, we took measurements and added supports along the back and side walls, nailing directly into the studs.  Follow our room makeover progress to see more details.

Our family room makeover is coming along nicely thanks to the help of FrogTape! It played a huge roll in this diy art piece for a gallery wall I’m working on. I thought it’d be fun to pay homage to my foyer wall by recreating the look on canvas to display in the family room. Visit the blog for a full tutorial and other progress photos! The fireplace is looking mighty different!

The Back to the Future design trend is seen throughout my living room makeover, including the hand painted décor! Check out all of the details.

Painting is underway and I’m loving this Satin Black color…but only on my built-ins.  Kind of a bold feature wall while the rest of the room is a slightly silver/grey white.  I am planning to add to my cabinet base and turn them into the full floor to ceiling built-ins I always imagined for them. This is going to make a gorgeous feature in this room, and building this unit myself from some lumber leftover from past projects will keep me under budget so I can splurge on a few decorative items.  Follow along and watch the room transformation.

Faux Natural can be seen throughout my living room from the paint colors to the hand painted pillows, art and vases.  You can see the full makeover here.

Week 2: Room Prep

For every space we’ve done for the kiddos, we always have some hand-painted art. Here we knew we wanted to do something classic and easy to adorn his walls, and nothing says New England Preppy like a vintage car and a surfboard top… The perfect blend for our tween! We also rehabbed some old furniture pieces with paint, including a desk and a mirror.

Next up, the integral part of our overall design - the plaid wall. We wanted a classic approach with a bit of a nod to argyle. Watch how we bring this room to life with a little bit of math and a lot of FrogTape® at thehandmadehome.com.

Week 3 : Transformation

No detail was spared in this New England Preppy bedroom makeover.  We used this trend to create a detailed accent wall with coordinating décor. See the details of our son’s room makeover.

Week 2: Room Prep

This week, we’re sharing our decision to go BOLD. Because we had already installed bead board on the lower half of the room, it felt less daunting to choose a deep, saturated green for the walls above, and after squinting at countless swatches, we finally landed on a paint color.

In keeping with the trend of really going for it, we also painted the windows!  Watch how we transform this bedroom.

Week 3 : Transformation

You’ll feel like you’re in an Oasis when you see the bedroom makeover that we redid in our lake house.  The dark green wall color with black window trim make a bold statement in this Oasis. See the full makeover here.
