Because design from any era, done well — is design done well.
Renovating the back porch closed in the space and made it much more functional. This Portland bungalow was cute to begin with, but now it’s downright beautiful with an updated exterior, front porch, and more. A master bedroom that once looked like a depressing dungeon gets updated with updated trim and paint, a new headboard, and loads of DIY design projects. A busted pipe sparked Jennifer Rizzo’s complete kitchen remodel.
But a newly opened driveway with updated landscaping and a bright white fence gave it a much more welcoming look. A very handy DIY couple renovated this Pennsylvania schoolhouse with lots of open spaces and designer touches. A new screened in porch added loads of outdoor living space to this remodeled North Carolina farmhouse. The Joy of Caking‘s 1972 Frolic Camper looked like, well, an old camper.
But she updated this vintage camper with a delightful new bathroom door with a cottage look. After nine months and 2,000, it’s hard to believe this is even the same kitchen.
Whether you’re knocking down walls, gutting your kitchen, or just throwing on a few coats of paint, there’s inspiration to be found among completed projects.
