Letting A Home Tell A Story – Home Tour
Homeowner, and designer, Libbie has turned both her lake house and Airbnb rental into dreamy spaces. Beautiful and functional, her DIY projects and renovations have added timeless charm to modern living spaces while keeping her personal stamp.
In today’s post, we’re sharing all her before and after DIY projects over at A Life Unfolding.
Let’s dive right into this home tour and get ready to feel inspired!
Take a glance at Libbie’s Airbnb deck. She renovated this space using an eye-catching living wall as the anchor and paired it with a set of outdoor wicker furniture to create an ideal spot for her guests to unwind and enjoy the fresh air.
You can see her entire step-by-step process of the DIY living wall on her site.
An inviting refuge that blends a moody vibe with a manly edge? Yes, please!
This renovation is what decor dreams are made of! Libbie’s new basement features different decor ideas that work beautifully together.
The makeover made the before picture completely unrecognizable!
The DIY mid-century-inspired wood accent wall pairs perfectly with the exposed ceiling and neutral vinyl tile flooring.
Thanks to the throws, pillows, and rugs, texture and color add warmth and vibrancy and make this basement an irresistible spot!
Here we have another jaw-dropping example of a perfect and budget-friendly kitchen renovation! Libbie leveled up her rental to a whole new level taking a dated kitchen to a more neutral, brighter, and chic one.
Modern hardware, painted cabinets, painted tiles, and one amazing concrete countertop dupe and.. voila! A total kitchen makeover for less than $500!
Renovating structures with a very distinct style can turn into a challenging project, like those niches from the 90s. In this slatted wall DIY makeover, a new slatted wall and a few small tweaks took this old-fashioned wall to a chic and trendy one.
Libbie has a fabulously step-by-step DIY tutorial on it. Check it out HERE.

She completely changed the look and feel of this tiny room by picking a wallpaper with a whimsical pattern.
Then, she added a small sink, a golden mirror, and a wooden stool that enhances the room’s gold, white, and blue hues.
In this small bathroom, no detail was spared. From the stunning bathtub walls covered in white subway tiles, monochromatic penny tile floors, freshly painted walls, to the subtle light grey cabinet sink combo.

This is the ultimate dream for a beginner DIYer who’s itching to get started renovating their homes with their own hands! This bedroom makeover is proof small touches go a long way when it comes to renovating and decorating spaces.
The accent wall steals the show at first, but all the details add to the overall composition.
The headboard and closet doors were upgraded to add decorative appeal. Libbie has a fantastic DIY where she shows us how to create those closet doors trimmed out in molding.
