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?

We did DS's room a while back as part of a CM influencer program. Otherwise, the last thing we did was a fresh coat of paint in the spare bedroom. Nothing major, it just desperately needed some freshening.

We really haven't 're-decorated' much of anything at all; just added a new piece of something here and there.  When we bought our new flat screen tv, we bought a new (smaller) entertainment center for it to fit into.  We once bought a new computer desk, b/c the old one was a really cheap one and not looking to good any more.  But as for actually re-doing an entire room, or renovating ... never been able to do that ........... unless you want to count when we had to do our daughter's nursery 21 years ago and then of course over the years it had to go from that to a toddler to a little girl, to a teen ... but that's a slow process and a lot of that was hand-me-down stuff.

 I redid my son's room for the CM influencer as well.  I've always done all of my own decorating work, I like to paint.

We've been slowly redecorating our whole house for the past six months. We did the living room first and then our hallway and foyer, we did both of our kids bedrooms and just recently, thanks to cafemom and ikea, we did our bedroom!

Thanks! I have slowly realized I've got a theme going on in my house, with red, yellow, green, and brown being repeated all over, and lots of leaf motifs.

Wow!  That looks really nice and love all the colors!

Oh, it looks so much better! I love the color! :)

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.

LOL! Sure - how much you wanna pay me? ;)

Quoting RobynS:

I love that!!! Wanna come and do mine? ;)

Quoting bamababe1975:

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. :)
