Despite the fact that it snowed a couple inches here this week, I’m going to PRETEND like it’s spring. I’m going to pretend it is warm enough to open the windows and put away the winter blankets and plant some flowers. Even though there’s really still snow on the ground, and I’m sitting here in fuzzy socks and a robe, let’s pretend it’s spring and take a little tour of the house all freshened up for this beautiful season.
For those of you who are stopping by from the home tour, I want to say, WELCOME! I’m thrilled to have you here at the farmhouse. We’re in the process of renovating and updating our cute, old home, and I can’t wait to show you the progress we’ve made so far. Let’s start in my office!
This is the room where all the magic happens… blog magic, that is. 😉 With the feminine color palette I chose for the office makeover, it already felt like it was “ready for spring”. A few flowers and pastel accents was all it needed…

We’ve been so busy with the living room/dining room makeover that not much has changed in the office lately, but I did give my desk chair a pretty big upgrade with this tufted beauty I found at Kirkland’s. I loved the makeover I did on the $5 thrift store chair, but it was time for a change. This new chair really dresses up the desk area and is MUCH more comfortable when I’m sitting at the computer all day.

Sprucing up your home for spring does not mean you have to spend a ton of money. Want to know my current decorating obsession? Baby’s breath! I bought 4 packages from the grocery store for under $12 and used little bunches of it all over the house. It’s so inexpensive, lasts much longer than fancy, delicate flowers, and I love the simple, clean feel of it. Seriously… count all the different places I used it in this post!

Moving on to the most recent room makeover… our dining room! We lightened up the space with board and batten on the walls, built a new farmhouse table and benches, and added some much-needed storage, as this space also doubles as our entryway. I even made you muffins today…

I truly enjoy sharing our home with you everyday, and I hope you enjoy following us along on this crazy journey! Happy spring!

You should have heard me as I scrolled through this post! I couldn’t stop oohing and ahhing over how beautiful it all is! Lovely job, lovely home!
So pretty! I love the idea of using baby’s breath. And I might come steal that mint desk one of these days! You have a beautiful home.
Hi! Stopping by from the Inspiration^2 link party. Beautiful home! It is like a magazine spread. How to you manage to be so uncluttered? Where do you keep “stuff” like craft supplies, etc?
So happy to see you at Love Grows Wild, Ashley! You’re too kind. 🙂 My house certainly isn’t always uncluttered… four people (2 of them kids) living in a small farmhouse makes for a lot of “stuff”! I try to add storage everywhere and anywhere I can, plus I’m really good about purging and organizing regularly. I don’t like to keep stuff around if we don’t use it, so I donate and sell quite a bit to keep down on all the clutter. And then there are times where my house still looks like a tornado hit, but hey… that’s life! 🙂
I love the console table with different containers inside! Genius!
Such a beautiful home tour! I loved each and every picture. Beautiful job, Liz! It’s an honor being on this home tour with you!
Your home is beautiful! I am still in love with your mint desk….the perfect shade of mint!
