Hello everyone and welcome to my little blog!

Today we are going to be talking about home rennovations!

Originally I wanted to do a seperate post dedicated to each home rennovation we completed, but to be honest my husband does most of the renovating and I mostly just pick out the colors and textures so I don’t think I’m qualified to write about the work that goes into a project.

But renovating our house is a big part of our lives these days so I thought I would write a year in review dedicated to our DIY home projects.

Insulating the Garage

This cost us about $300 and we have yet to put up any dry wall to finish it up completely. But it’s a step in the right direction. When we moved in, the garage was just external walls, a roof and framework.


We were missing a lot of trim around our windows, on the stairs, and in some closets when we moved in. We added trim to our windows in the living room as part of our winterizing project and it has helped keep our home so much more cozy this winter. Since we had a little extra material after we were done, we also did the stairs. In total we have spent about $50 on the trim so far and even though we still have a few more nooks and crannies to do before we’re completely done, the house is looking so much better than it did before.


The nursery is the room that I have been most anxious about finishing because it’s the only room in the house that needs to be finished by a particular date. That said, we have spent about $500 putting in a floor so far. Next we have to add some trim and paint the walls but it’s getting done and my due date is still in March despite my complicated pregnancy so I’m doing my best not to worry too much about it.


So far we have spent around $60 on paint and have not painted a single thing in our house. We have to repaint some rooms because of chipped paint and we have to paint other rooms because they have never been painted at all.

And that is a complete list of the home rennovations my husband and I have worked on in 2019 and their costs. It probably doesn’t seem like a ton, but our home is a work in progress and it looks a lot better than it did in 2018.
