Recently on my channel, I announced we are moving to Arizona! As much as we will miss this house + all the work we've put into it, it's been so neat to see the final product finally come together.
This bathroom makeover needed more done than your usual makeover, because it was completely unfinished! We started out with flooring + tiling (not filmed), and ended up with a completely finished bathroom! (Besides a shower door, which is on its way!) I'll be sharing some of my favorite makeover tips for y'all that can be applied to ANY space you makeover!
CLEAN UP YOUR SPACE FIRST!
It can get a bit messy, so starting with a clean space will help you feel less overwhelmed & also help you see problem areas. We definitely experienced mess this time, as we were making it over during construction! Cleaning the space up gave us a blank slate + fresh mind to know what we wanted to do with the space.
INCLUDE YOUR KIDS IN THE PROCESS!
Our boys came down several times throughout the process, but our son Liam, 7, really took an interest! Involving him made him feel like he was an important part of the process, and it created great family time + memories as well.
Things in life don't always go as planned... and home makeovers are no exception. Don't let it get you down! Keep going, even if you have to take a break or two to refresh yourself... the end result will look amazing! We had to change shelving, wait for a plumber to attach the pipes, and always last minute changes + interruptions!
START SMALL + TAKE YOUR TIME!
Room makeovers take a lot of preparation to plan all my ideas! As I focus on one area at a time, I can really focus on what will work in that space to be functional. Then, once my plans for each spot are ready, I can add or take out items to tie it all together! Don't feel rushed to make the space look great. Make sure you find things you LOVE & are INSPIRED by! I wanted to make sure this bathroom was functional & gave off a welcoming look. I felt this makeover did just that! The makeover ended up taking longer than we thought, but we were back at it the next day & so happy with how it all came together! We're so glad we finished the space before we have to say goodbye and move to Arizona!
Now that our Basement Makeover Series is officially DONE, it all just feels surreal! This has been a dream to put together the basement for our home and family. We are sad to leave this home, but also SO excited for our journey to Arizona & so excited for the family who bought our home to (hopefully) enjoy it as much as we have! Stay tuned for our Moving to Arizona Series over on my YouTube channel! PLUS a brand new makeover series starting in just a few days!!
Love you guys!!
