Welcome to another home tour and in this one we are visiting a suburban home transformation! With the power of paint there is so much that you can do, no matter the size, cost or age of a home. Let’s dive right in and visit Becca Bertotti of Adventures In Decorating with some before and after images to prove the point!
“Our humble abode, here in Northern VA, where I live with my husband and teenage son. While our home was a “new build” when we moved in several years ago, I couldn’t wait to put my DIY stamp on it. And, while it may appear Craftsman in style on the outside, I filled it with my transitional style on the inside. “
DECK BEFORE (neglected and in need of a refresh)
DECK AFTER! Painted decking gray; added a new rug, table and chairs; added a decorative privacy panel (diy project)
Becca’s Suburban Home Transformation!
DINING ROOM (which recently got a little face lift that Becca will share soon)!
FOYER (adding board and batten helped give this space a little personality)
FOYER: Becca loves decorating for the seasons, like here when she goes from SPRING …
… to Fall!
FAMILY ROOM BEFORE: a nice, blank slate
FAMILY ROOM AFTER! Amazing what diy battens on the wall; shiplap on the fireplace; new chandelier; painting the walls/fireplace white; and then painting the windows black did to this room!
FAMILY ROOM: Inexpensive bookcases that I then added moulding and trim to help fill this wall.
FAMILY ROOM: This is one of my favorite rooms to decorate for the holidays!
JACKSON’S BEDROOM BEFORE
JACKSON’S BEDROOM AFTER (applied Stikwood to the back wall for a fun accent).
KITCHEN AFTER! Painted cabinets; added a wood vent hood; took down cabinets; added floating shelves in their place; wrapped the island in “shiplap” and added a larger island countertop to it; and then painted all counters with epoxy and paint to resemble calacatta marble. All DIY projects.
KITCHEN: Never enough chandeliers, right?!
BASEMENT REC ROOM BEFORE
BASEMENT REC ROOM AFTER! I laid luxury vinyl plank; painted the doors; and added shiplap to the walls.
SITTING ROOM BEFORE
SITTING ROOM AFTER: I added a faux mantel and mounted shiplap above. Recently, I added these bookcases and gave them height and a bit of a custom look by adding plywood, trim and moulding.
SITTING ROOM AFTER
SUNROOM: I love to play musical furniture, especially in this room, where on any given day, I can take it from a two chair/console table configuration …
to a breakfast room area …
back to a sitting area!
