Welcome back, friends! And if you’re visiting my blog for the first time, I am so happy you’re here. Today is a big one. I’ve decided it’s finally time to give y’all a full house tour. Some rooms, you’ll get to see for the first time, my oldest and my youngest rooms. We’ve been in this current base house for a year and a half. I would say that I am finished decorating, but honestly I am never “finished”. I’m always thinking of new projects and ways to improve, so this wont be the last you see of this place.
I’m gonna share the before pictures from our first walk-through so you can see the transformation of each space.
The yard and landscape got a huge makeover. I removed all the old plants and reshaped the garden beds before adding some new shrubs and perennials and of course annuals throughout each season.
We are not permitted to change anything about the exterior of our homes so this space needed a lot of decor to spice it up.
I love decorating out here throughout the seasons. It’s such a fun hangout for our family and friends.
I gave this room a coat of bright white paint and stenciled an accent wall and a fun pink on the door.
The first thing that had to go was the light fixture. I covered it with a pendant light from IKEA. Then, I wallpapered one wall and painted the others a deep blue.
Kitchen (The itty bitty teeny tiny kitchen)
I gave the walls a coat of bright white paint and covered the counters and backsplash with contact paper.
Maci & Sadie’s Room
Aqua paint and lots of girly accessories for this room.
No paint in here, just lots of color and toys.
Downstairs Jack & Jill Bathroom

This room probably had the biggest transformation. I used dark green paint to turn this room into a cool, eclectic room that we love.

I used bright white paint to make this feel a little bigger and contact paper for some character.
That’s it, folks. And let me tell you, it feels soooooo good to finally share this post with you all. After working hard for a good year on this house, I am so happy to have a place we all can call home for however long the Air Force keeps us here. I know my form of “settling in” is extreme, but it’s so important that my family feels at home wherever we live. All the effort is worth it. I hope you all enjoyed the tour and maybe even feel inspired to make your house(rental or not) like a place you love to call home.
