In today’s edition of our decorating home tour series, we’ll be visiting the home of Noting Grace’s blog creator, Jen.
If you’ve been a long-time reader of her blog like I have, you’ll probably know Jen moved with her family to another town, leaving her beloved Tennessee house behind.
Although daunting, Jen graciously took this new challenge head-on and revamped her new home with a budget-friendly plan.
DIY-savvy and creative, she transformed her Birmingham home from a dated house to a welcoming and stylish family retreat.
“We took the dated 80s fixer and brought it into this era.”
Let’s begin this tour by visiting the heart of the home: the kitchen!
This farmhouse-style kitchen is a breath of fresh air. Mixing cool and warm hues, the space feels bright and airy but still cozy.
In the reveal post, Jen shared some “before” pictures, and the change is fantastic!
Alterations were made to the cabinet’s color, backsplash, appliances, and lighting, completely changing the appearance of the kitchen. Jen also removed the large kitchen island to make room for a stylish round table.
These small but significant changes gave the kitchen a modern but homey farmhouse feel.
The entryway had a built-in space for a desk area, but Jen made the most of it by transforming it into a pantry that doubles as a coffee bar.
Jen switched things up, making the trim details match the ones used in the kitchen reno. She later added a charge-spot for all electronic devices was added and the wall now has white shelvings, displaying Jen’s all-white milk glass pieces collection!
As you can see, this makeover didn’t need any structural changes or was uber-expensive but the transformation is still marvelous! All the well-thought-out modifications and details made this farmhouse kitchen daydreaming-worthy!
The sunroom renovation is a gem all on its own. The main goal of this DIY sunroom makeover project was to make it feel cozy and relaxing.
“I had such a vision for this room. It wasn’t necessarily decor-related. It was hoping for a cozy space – a quiet spot to enjoy a book or to take a nap.” – Jen.
In just a month, Jen transformed an old and dark room into a bright, inviting space. She painted the door in a crisp black, matching it with the original black windows. This simple detail help framing the beautiful outdoors and keep visual harmony.
A combo of bamboo curtains and DIY white linen curtains plus a mix of antique restored furniture -like a stunning wardrobe, vanity bench, and hutch cabinet- added extra farmhouse vibes.
In this walkthrough reveal, Jen also shares a couple of hacks on keeping white furniture impeccable. Don’t miss it! Click HERE to read it.
The juxtaposition of the creamy white sofas and jute rug is superb. It adds such an airy and serene feel!
If you’ve ever wondered how to mix modern with French country, this bedroom is a fabulous example!
The room was a simple and functional space, but it needed some decor-pizzazz.
Black, white, neutral wood, and soft greys and sand hues paint this bedroom color scheme. A perfect color palette to encourage peaceful sleep!
No doubt, the bed is the focal point of this room. Thanks to the dark accent wall, the distressed light wood bed stands out immediately.
DIY beams made of cedar boards, olive trees prints framed in dark black frames, and some greenery add texture and a rustic touch.
The living room needed some structural changes, and Jen didn’t shy away from the challenge.
In a step-by-step tutorial on her blog she describes how she removed an interior wall, and the result was everything the room needed.
After removing the wall, natural light filters into the living room from the front door, making it seem larger and lighter.
If you’re dealing with a small budget to update your bathroom, take a look at this incredible remodel.
Prior to the renovation, the all-white bathroom lacked character.
This area needed some splashes of color and layered textures to go with the home’s newly refreshed style.
But Jen gave it some major style and went all out while keeping the makeover within her budget.
Tackling the fundamental issues first, Jen worked on the countertop first.
The original countertop base worked as the foundation for the new one; a natural light-colored wood countertop with added doors, industrial-style fixtures, and matte vinyl faux marble.
The whitewashed faux brick wall became the inevitable anchor point of this bathroom, making every element work together.
The result? A stunning -and functional- bathroom that harmonizes with the rest of the home.
Just like we saw in our previous home tour (you can read it HERE) Facebook Marketplace hides all sorts of treasures!
Jen found a stunning bed on it for just $60. She sanded it down to remove the dark shellac finish, making the delicate headboard’s details stand out. Ivory bedding paired with a classic area rug in light grey hues took the whole ensemble to a new level of cozy vibes.
Isn’t this home charming?
I’m sure anyone who’s a modern farmhouse lover will enjoy her home and blog about all her DIY home projects!
