DIY of an 1895 Historical Home

Meet: Mandy, a beautiful thrift shopper and DIY project lover from
Biblical Homemaking

Ready for some DIY before and after room makeover eye candy?

Office Reveal:

Before
(sage green, brown trim and painted floors)
Beautiful stained glass window!

Dark

Amazing After 
LIGHT!
Fun pops of color - just the right touch!
Love the freshly painted white trim and lightened floors.
$5 desk and $20 armoire!
Hello gorgeous pocket door!

Isn't this entire chalkboard wall fabulous?!

and best of all, an unbelievable budget!  See HERE for the original post with all of the details. 

Bathroom before leaves a little to be desired, maybe even a lot...


But now, it's beautiful!  They put up beadboard, installed new wood floors, a new sink, cabinet, faucet and light fixture.  They added a new door and refinished that gorgeous claw foot tub.  They wallpapered, textured and painted it a warm yellow.  Lack of any natural lighting affects the picture color, but you can still see that their hard work paid off BIG from the pictures below:

A thrift store treasure hunter too!
