We just finished up the guest room downstairs, and we wanted to share the transformation! We are so excited to have a cozy guest room for friends and family to stay in when they come to visit. Below you can check out pictures, a time lapse of the transformation, purchase links, and a budget breakdown.Read More
Many of you have been on the journey with us throughout our own renovation over the past 2+ years. We’ve shared a lot on Instagram (@peachandpinehome) in our stories and posts and have appreciated all your love and feedback throughout the process! Surprisingly (at least to us) our blog post Our Kitchen Cabinets: An honest review of IKEA and Semihandmade has become one of our most visited web pages of all time. Crazy! But since that is the case, we wanted to do a little 1 year(ish) update here.Read More
The minute we saw our house for the first time, I knew I wanted to give this one a paint job. There’s nothing wrong with red brick (we loved it on our last house), but this little ranch Home just felt tired and dated. It was time for a face lift, and there’s nothing like paint to make a HUGE difference with a relatively little amount of time and money.
At one point, we thought we would tackle the job of exterior painting on our own. But, we found a painter who came highly recommended and gave us a really reasonable quote, and it took us about 3.5 minutes to decide to hand over the reigns on this project. Let me tell you...it was worth every penny! Due to scheduling and lots of rain, we waited several months for him to get started, but then he finished the entire paint job in 2 days!
Let me remind you of what the house looked like “before.”
And now, the long awaited after!
I am still taken aback every time I drive up to the house. It definitely makes a statement on our country street (where most of the homes haven’t been modernized).
The pink door was actually Jeremy’s idea! The salesman at Sherwin Williams looked at me like a crazy person when I told him we wanted a pink door. It’s one of my favorite things about it!
Someday we will plant flower beds, install a new deck and pergola off the side of the house, and add a paver patio and landscaping to the backyard. Yes, someday we will get there. But for now, I am just soaking up how far we have come and what a joy it is to drive up to a little house that makes me so happy!

If you've followed us along on our journey here and over on Instagram, you know that we have spent the last year renovating the main floor of our little brick ranch house in the country. We bought this property knowing that we needed to change just about EVERYTHING about it, and we have tackled it head on. We lived for three months in the unfinished basement of the property while we overhauled the upstairs. Let me just say this about living in a dingy. prone-to-flooding basement for an extended period of time without a kitchen or walls: (in the most southern way possible) That'll BLESS YA!
While we still have a lot of work to do on the exterior and basement of the house (not to mention a nursery coming soon), our main floor is pretty much complete! During the whole renovation, I told myself that I would reward myself for all the hard work by hiring someone ELSE to take photos at the end. It was so fun to work with the lovely Caroline Sharpnack and see our home through HER eyes! Be sure to check out her work and portfolio. The girl knows interiors! All of these photos are hers.

Thank you, Caroline, for the beautiful photos!
