A Recap of 2014

Well, we are back home after a nice little Christmas break and seeing how I am still busy getting the house back in order I figured I'd do a wrap up of some of our posts from 2014. (You can click on any of the links or photos to bring you to the actual posts which will contain all of the details).

In January we made more progress in our downstairs and upstairs hallways:

In February we finally started working on the first wall in our master bedroom.

And then we teamed up with Ballard Design to make over our guest bedroom:

March was a slow month but we first found this recipe which we now make several times each month:

In April we shared images from my niece Everly's first birthday party:

 and we added some lights to our porch:

In May we did two of my favorite changes to our home. First we added marble and a farmhouse sink to our kitchen:

And then we made over the room above the garage to be a very pink playroom:

Then in June we finished up Jason's kitchen and dining room:

 and then we did a recap post showing the progress we made this first year in our house:

In July we shared some summer touches to our Den:

And then one of our most read posts of the year, our review of most of the IKEA items we have bought over the years:

Then in August we shared our parent's living room:

Then we added some finishing touches to the girls' New England room:

And that's it for 2014! I'll probably be catching up on a bunch of things for the next week or so but then hope to start in with some new posts! 

Don't forget you can visit any of the posts for detailed source info or we also have a link here to a list of sources for each room.

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

  8. Excellent post! You have done such an amazing job transforming your home. Lovely! Regarding Jason's dining room ceiling ... Did you all install a wood ceiling? If so ... Is there a post with details? How wide are the planks? I am considering installing wood to all of my ceilings.

    1. Thanks! His dining room ceiling was that way when he moved in (I believe it used to be a porch many years ago). I'm not sure how wide the boards are, but I would guess between 3"-4".

  18. Jenni, what made you go from white walls to grey walls (townhouse vs this new house)?
    Also, I'm trying to redo my master bedroom and can't decide if I like the dark grey walls like you hd in your town home, or lighter ones like you have in this new home? What made you go lighter in your master? Is it easier to decorate?
    Thanks!

    1. Hi! Our new house gets very little natural light and the ceilings are lower, so I hoped the lighter colors would help make it feel less dark and dreary and help makes things look a bit more airy. Now that the house has been mostly made over I'm actually adding a few more dark colors in. I'll be painting our dining room Kendall Charcoal next week actually!
