THE HOUSE TOUR

Welcome to the house tour…take a look around, see our DIY projects, how we updated our builder grade home, and how we made our house  beautiful AND comfortable. You can also see video tours on the A House + A Dog YouTube channel.

Our entryway in 2015 got a little update with a DIY Ikea Hack, new paint on the door and an updated light fixture. Every season this area gets decorated over and over again – you can see it here for fall, Christmas and a shop the house series. Check out all the other entryway posts here. 

 

– LIVING ROOM –

Ah, the heart of our home. For some it’s the kitchen, but since I don’t like to cook – the heart of our home is the living room. When we first moved in, we didn’t change much. We kept our comfy sofa from our last house, built a sofa table and made big plans for the room. I changed the rug a few times, updated the curtains and added an accent chair.

– DINING –

This is the room that has changed the most in our home. In the early years it was full of shelving, a small dining table, and lots of decor. Then, it got a big change with a new dining table, shiplap, less decor and a simpler modern farmhouse vibe.

Then another change – new chairs and less decor once again. For me, the simpler the better.

 

– KITCHEN –

We haven’t done much with the kitchen since moving in, but we did add some new pendant lights and some diy shelving. But, don’t worry we have big plans for this space too! 😉

 

– LAUNDRY –

Our laundry room was very builder grade until our update. We solved one of the biggest problems in our home with a new barn door, created some extra storage and added some function.

In true Allison fashion, I updated it again just a few months later and added a new sign.

 

– MASTER BEDROOM –

Our bedroom before was dark and gray and I loved it, but it needed a more modern and fresh update. I chose our bedroom as our first One Room Challenge and it was so much fun!

We updated the wall with horizontal board and batten, painted the headboard and bench, and added some DIY dressers.

One of my favorite projects, our DIY barn door stayed for the new design and we use it everyday as a barrier between our bedroom and bathroom.

Then, a few months later we updated our room once again with Pergo floors. You can read more about the floors we chose and our DIY installation. 

 

– MASTER BATHROOM –

Our master bath is very builder grade. In the three years in our home, I have only painted and updated our towel bars to these hooks. But I have big plans this spring to update this room for the One Room Challenge.

 

– OFFICE –

When I first decided to make this little angled portion of our hallway my office, I was all about the rustic design and details. Then a year later, I simplified things a little and got myself a new fancy chair.

Once again, I have plans to update this space too. It’s truly become my little space in the house and where I like to sit and write blogposts, browse Pinterest and shop online.

 

More rooms coming soon!
