Redecorating

When is the last time you redecorated your home? What did you do? Did you do it all yourself, or did you hire someone to do it for you?

This was the den before (excuse the mess - hubby doesn't know how to clean before taking a pic, lol):

And this is the den after:

Hubby and I did all the work ourselves, except for the floor. The flooring was carpet, but it was ruined in a flood, so we replaced it with vinyl plank flooring which Daddy and my bros helped us install in a couple of hours. It looks like old pine boards, complete with faux knots, splits, and nails, and it feels like the real thing, too. :)

We haven't redecorated in years.  We are so busy with sporting activities and low on money.

We still haven't full decorated from moving in.  Our house is a work in progress...LOL

We are in the process of redoing/redecorating our downstairs bathroom. DH just finished the floor today.

Before we moved in (12 years ago) we had someone refinish the floors, and we painted. We bought a couple of pieces of furniture, too.

We rent, so we are pretty limited to what we can do.

Back in October through December of last year we did some serious repainting though. I did it all myself and the place looks a million times better now (in the rooms we painted). I'll see if I can find some photos.

Here is our downstairs bathroom that we did right before last Halloween.

Before:

After:

We have a towel rod now under that wooden mirror with towels hanging from it that are coordinating colors of the room.

Both of the room makeovers did improve the spaces.  It's amazing what painting and picking the right colors can do!
