Tour My Home

Welcome to Southern Hospitality!

As of October 18, 2012, I moved into my fixer-upper 1979 split level dream cottage, after living with my parents for over a year and 1/2.  It’s a dream come true to be back in a house of my own again and I absolutely LOVE it!  My 85 year old dad and I spent 6 months fixing this house up from top to bottom and still have more to do.  I couldn’t be happier with my house.  It’s so me and feels so cozy and like a home, sweet home should feel.

Here’s a look at my current home tour, room by room.  Click on the links for those particular posts.  This home has been a true DIY journey.

My new screened porch is finally finished and I couldn’t be happier with it.

The latest room just finished and organized is my office space. You can see ALL the details on this post.

My kitchen was a complete gut job and I opted for Ikea cabinets and couldn’t be happier with all my choices.  You can see the Before and After’s of the kitchen here.

And here’s the complete breakdown on all the kitchen costs, from top to bottom.

Another room that I’m so proud of is the dining room.  We added board and batten to the walls and completely transformed this room on a budget. You can see the Before and After shots of the dining room here.

One more space that got completely overhauled is the living room.  When I first saw this house it had nasty carpet and some dark blue paint on the walls.  I lightened up the whole house and put down hand scraped engineered hardwood plank flooring from Shaw Floors.  I love my new living room and you can see Before and After’s of the living room here.

My guest bath got freshened up instead of gutting with beadboard wallpaper, molding and a mirror frame, as well as new paint on the vanity and countertops.  Looks a lot better now!

The master bedroom is my own little haven, a mix of Traditional furniture and cottage style.

And last, but not least, my newly renovated laundry room/mudroom has come a long, long way:

The house below was my former home in Birmingham and it was a 5 year project of fixing it up and making it pretty. 

I’ve shared a lot of the projects here on my blog, so take a look around.  You can read Meet Rhoda to find out more about me and  why I moved back to Georgia.
