Farmhouse Table Build

For a long time, I've dreamed of having a huge table. I wanted something that our whole family could fit around at holidays and birthdays. Big tables are pricey though! Then we came across the idea of building a table. The cost was considerably less and we were able to find detailed instructions via Pinterest. Jeremy was willing to tackle the project, so we decided to do it. This is the result! 

 While Jeremy worked on building the table and bench, I worked on the chairs. 

We found the chairs at a thrift store for only $25. That was for ALL six of them!

It was quite a transformation for the chairs!

We were able to complete this project (and had some supplies left over) for about $350. That includes the chairs and all the supplies to refinish and recover them. Not bad!

Inspiration and Instructions:
A big THANK YOU to Ana White for all the wonderful instructions!

Our New Hobby {Transforming Our Home}

We moved in early December and have quickly discovered our new hobby...our new house! We knew coming into it that it needed a lot of updating, but we fell in love with the house nonetheless. It has the perfect layout for us and is in a fantastic neighborhood. We started work on Day 1 and haven't slowed down much since then. Here's a little of what we've accomplished so far! Be sure to keep scrolling for the before pictures too!

And now for some before and after pictures!
Living Room
New floors and paint are what makes this room shine.

We have much more planned for the kitchen, but for now, we brightened up the room with fresh paint, new floors, and removed the excessive trim. That stuff was EVERYWHERE!

Master Bedroom

The wall of curtains is the star in our master bedroom. I love how they turned out!

Big Boy Bedroom

Toddler Bedroom
New carpet and paint went a long way in our boys' bedrooms. We used the same decorations as in the old house with the exception of the trees in the "Big Boy Bedroom". Thanks to an aunt an uncle for those; they really add a lot to Big Brother's room. 

Play Room

Play Room

Play Room Office Nook
This was the first room we tackled, since we knew the boys would be spending a lot of time in there. I took before pictures right after we closed on the house and then the demo started! The half wall/bar was the first thing to go. We're not finished with the desk area, but it's a huge improvement!

We'll have lots more to share in the next months (and maybe years) about our new hobby. It seems we have a project or 2 going most of the time. I've even painted more since I took these pictures just a couple days ago! We're enjoying it and look forward to sharing more transformations and projects.
