First Home: We purchased a 1979 colonial style home in 2014 and took on each space room by room until the day we sold it!
Here’s the first floor…
Living Room (Before):
Living Room (Progress): After replacing the carpets with bamboo flooring and painting the walls, we were left with a blank slate. We added the DIY Window Mirror Art to fill up the space above the couch, and have many other plans for the space!
Dining Room (Before):
Dining Room (Progress): After removing all of the carpet, wallpaper and chair rail, projects include the shiplap wall treatment, the DIY shelf and the table.
In the fall of 2016, I took a trip to Nebraska to visit Paige, and came home with a few goodies and a buffet to add to the space as well!
Kitchen (Progress): We shared a few tips on how to update kitchens on a budget, and then finally upgraded the counters right before we moved!
Family Room (Before):
Family Room (Progress): We had the old stone fireplace built out, sconces moved higher & replaced, and added a few DIY touches with the Airstone and DIY “Reclaimed” Mantle. We also added a fun lantern gallery wall, a new-to-us white coffee table, and our IKEA sectional.
Phase two for this space included a new reclaimed wood coffee table we got for a steal, new carpets and finishing off the fireplace with built-in shelves.
1/2 Bath (Before):
Half Bath (Progress): We removed the old vanity and replaced it to look like a built in unit, added the plank wall, and painted (twice!)
And here’s the second floor…
Foyer & Hallway (Before):
This room had me at this closet… : )
Master (Progress): So far we have ripped out all of the carpet, gave our IKEA bed a fresh coat of paint and updated the space with a mini-makeover.
The master bathroom also got a major upgrade from our hotel style set up as a part of the One Room Challenge. Check out all of the details in weeks 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and the final reveal!
Office (bedroom we’re using as an office) (Before):
Progress: As a part of the Fall 2016 One Room Challenge, we designed a space that gave us the room and storage we needed to keep us organized!
Guest #1 (Before):
Guest #1 (Progress): We made over this room as a part of the One Room Challenge and you can follow along with all of the updates here! We painted, added a custom headboard wall, built our own nightstands, and brought in lots of decor : )
Guest #2 (Before):
Guest #2 (Progress) Aka my baby brothers room: This room was our second wallpapered space that needed to be removed. The day before he came to visit, I threw together a few furniture pieces we had on hand and a fun little gallery wall!
Main Bath (Before):
Main Bath (After): As a part of the One Room Challenge, we took on completing this room in just 6 weeks! Updates include the closet turned built-in, the new tile floors, the vanity makeover, wood valance, and many more along the way (Weeks 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6!)
Deck (Progress): We have big plans for this space, but the new furniture made an appearance in our fall house tour last year and we can’t wait to share more!
Garage (After): After tackling the space in 6 short weeks for the One Room Challenge, we revealed a much more organized and useful space!

Where did you ladies get that Michigan poster from in the guest/office?! I have been looking for one just like it and love it! And sorry that I am obnoxiously commenting all over your blog :/
You’re too funny- We always love comments! I actually made it using various fonts and had it large-scale printed at an office supply store. If you’re interested shoot us an email at email@example.com and I might be able to send it to you or give you the font names!
amazing changes….love all you did. Christine from Little Brags
Thanks so much, Christine! : )

I love your kitchen renovation. What color are the walls painted in the kitchen?
Thanks Emily! It’s Benjamin Moore’s Revere Pewter 🙂
Love the garage makeover! What colors did you use for the walls, floor and door?
Hi! I would also be interested in the paint colors you used in the garage. Your makeovers are wonderful!!!
Hi Michelle! Thank you so much! The paint color is Mercurial by PPG 🙂
I love the book shelf & the bench in front of the bed, could you be able to give me the link to both of those furniture?! Thx (guest room #1)
Hi Carole! Thanks so much! Unfortunately the bench was purchased from Homegoods and the bookshelf is an old IKEA line, but I’ve seen the bench recently in store if that helps at all! Thanks so much for stopping by!

I love what you’ve done with your home. My husband and I are in the process of fixing up ours. Would you mind sharing where you purchased your reclaimed mantle?
Thanks so much Susana! We actually purchased a 6×6 8′ piece of wood from Home Depot, and it only cost $16 🙂 The link for more info is here if you’d like as well! http://jodiei.sg-host.com/2014/12/08/cozy-fireplace-makeover/ Thanks so much for stopping by!
Love the warm wood tones with the gray, you’re amazing at combining color combinations. Can you tell me what kind of wood and stain that was used behind the bed and the office? was it applied like the ship lap in the dining room?
Love what you did in this small bathroom. I saw this room in the BHG Nov 2019 issue! Would you be able to tell me where you purchased the light fixture faucet and cabinet hardware from?
Hi Barb! Thanks so much! The light fixture and faucet were from Lowes, and the hardware was from Amazon 🙂
I am interested in where you got the tile for the white kitchen? I love it.
Thank you so much for the inspiration!
Hi Kristen! It was from a local SE Michigan vendor called Virginia Tile if that helps 🙂
Hi! Saw your 1/2 bath makeover in bh&g. So pretty. Could you share that light gray paint color please?
Hi Jill! Thanks so much for stoping by the blog after seeing the article! The color is Benjamin Moore Cement Gray 🙂 Have a great day!
Just came across your page and I love what you have done to your home. Could you please tell me what was the off white colour you used in your living room.
Hi Linda! Thanks so much! The white color is Benjamin Moore White Dove in our Illinois home 🙂
