DIY Inspired Before and After Home Tour

Before and After Home Tour DIY Inspired

We have made a lot of changes to our home since we moved in in 2012. Since then, we have painted the interior and exterior, redone the floors both upstairs and downstairs, made over the balcony and patio, and made over the staircase and mantel. Phew! I have written all about it but thought I’d share a before and after home tour post and then to see the full details of each, you can just click on through!

Let’s start with the whole house! Our home is Tudor style, which we like, but wanted it a little more updated so we changed it from brown and tan to black and gray.

On the outside we also did a mailbox makeover

… and rebuilt the entire balcony.

At the back of the house we tore down and replaced the patio and added a fan and outdoor lighting.

I even gave my daughter’s playhouse a mini makeover.

The front door needed a little love as well, so we changed it from brown to black.

The floors downstairs were tile and carpet and we decided to go ultramodern with finished cement floors.

For the staircase and upstairs we went from carpet to pewter ash hardwood.

  1. What a lovely remodel. It is very encouraging to see that it happens over time and that for most people their homes are still a work in progress. Looking forward to seeing your mast room remodel.

  2. Wow, what a transformation! You have done such a great job with your renovations, Dinah. Everything looks stunning!

    If you have a minute to spare I’d be thrilled if you could share this post at my weekly Sundays Down Under linky party which is on now. This would be a fabulous addition.

    Bets wishes for a great week,
