I have spent the week with the AWESOME DIY Blogger House team, getting ready for the big Parade of Homes reveal.
(me and Jess from Cox’s Corner)
It’s almost done.
And I am SO excited!!!

There are so many awesome details in this house — wall treatments I have never seen before. Ceiling treatments that are simple but make a huge impact. The color scheme is so pretty too!!
The whole concept behind this house, was to show people that you CAN create a beautiful space on a budget. So we have joined forces with Bangerter Homes and the Daybreak community to create a home with decorating ideas that are beautiful but also totally achievable for the anyone. Oftentimes, parade homes are so fabulous, but also way out of the average person’s budget.
I am bursting to tell you more about this home.
And I’m so excited to be teaming up with an awesome company — Homes.com to tell you more!
My room is the office. And I have loved looking for fun ideas to incorporate into the room. One thing that I really wanted was some built-in cabinets in that space. Bookshelves are a great way to organize an office and display pretty items.
And I love painting rugs so much. I knew a painted rug would be fun for that space.
Plus, I made a chandelier!!
And I refinished a pretty desk too. It’s amazing the transformation that some paint, steel wool and satin polyurethane can make!!
I hope you can come check it out in person if you are local, and if not – I am excited to post reveal pictures soon!!
And there’s even a DIY Barn Door (I’m so excited for that. And it’s going to be an AMAZING color):
We also have a fun DIY Blogger House Pinterest Board. Where we have pinned ideas that have given us inspiration for many of the projects in the house!
