I’m working on putting together a House Tour for the blog and I surprised myself with how much the Retro Ranch has changed in a little over a year. Sometimes it feels like we’ve accomplished so little in that time, but in reality, we’ve come so far. This is one of the bedrooms in the apartment. When we bought it, this room was an open space that seemed to function as a second living room. We built a wall with a door for privacy and turned the space into a second bedroom and back entryway. The first picture is the floor when we bought the house, the second is a couple of weeks ago when I finished laying the laminate flooring in the room. What a world of difference a year has made for this room! #diy #diyhomedecor #diyhome #retroranch #laminateflooring #diyhomeimprovement #homeimprovement #homeowner #pinestatediy #diyblog #housetour #diyblogger #blog #blogger #homeblog #construction #building

One of my sweet clients who needed to clean out his shed and knows I love orphaned antiques gave me 3 pretty chairs. This one and #2 are now rustic farmhouse style planters. All I did was add an old galvanized bucket! The third chair is handmade and I need to keep it inside, so it’ll most likely find a corner in my living room to live in as a holder of pillows😉 #repurposedchair #upcycledchair #frontporchdecor #salvagestyle #reinvented #galvanizedbucket #vintagehome #ranchhouse #vintageranch #retroranch #aquahouse #sweet_tea_studio

Some #tbt to our house circa early 1980s! I’m so sad that amazing bow window is gone. The shrubs are super mod and remind me of Edward Scissorhands. The original owner stopped by 2 & a half years ago to get dirt for her daughter’s wedding (something about joining the soil from where the bride and groom grew up) and she gave us a slew of photos. I’d love to add a light post back. ❤️ #retroranch #1970sranch #modshrubs #modgarden #modlandscaping #retrolandscaping #outdoordecor #gardening #homedecor

Action shot from yesterday’s cabinet install! This was our second time doing it ourselves, but it’s still definitely a tricky business, especially in an old house like ours where nothing is level. The key is to keep leveling every angle as you go, it’s slow but they ended up great! #diy #diyblog #diykitchen #kitchencabinets #diykitchencabinets #kitchenrenovation #kitchenremodel #handyman #diykitchenremodel #oldhouse #retrohouse #retroranch #diyblogger #homeimprovement #diyhomeimprovement
And we have cabinets!! The install went pretty quickly considering it was only our second time installing cabinets by ourselves. Of course, we weren’t dealing with a flat floor (old houses, amirite?) but I think we made it work! We rested the new countertop on top so I could see what it would look like, we’ll still have to trim it to size and cut the hole for the new sink before actually installing it. I can’t wait to get the doors back in and the drawers in, this kitchen is going to look amazing!! #wedidntevenfightonce #itsamiracle #diy #diyhouse #kitchenrenovation #kitchenremodel #diykitchen #diykitchencabinets #kitchencabinets #diyblog #diyblogger #homeimprovement #homeimprovementblog #retrohouse #retroranch

We also had a last minute change of plans and needed to change the flooring in the kitchen. The living room, dining room, and kitchen in the apartment are all open and spacious, but there was a different floor in the living room than there was in the kitchen and dining room. Because we are changing the layout of the kitchen cabinets, we faced a flooring dilemma: can we find some of the vinyl flooring that’s in the kitchen and dining room to make up for it?? The answer, it turns out, is no. So, in true “us” fashion, at the last minute, we removed the transition between the kitchen and living room and replaced the kitchen flooring with the same floor as the living room (which we were able to find, thank you @homedepot). Now the floor will flow nicely from the living room to the kitchen. There will still be a transition into the dining room, but only temporarily. Once we’re done with some more important projects, we’ll come back and replace that floor as well. What do you think of the new kitchen floor?? #diy #diyblog #diyhouse #kitchenrenovation #kitchenremodel #kitchenfloor #retrohouse #retroranch #homeimprovement #diyhomeimprovement #diyblogger #home #landlords
The cabinets are fully stained and just waiting for some poly! I can’t wait to see the apartment kitchen come together, we’re working so quickly to get everything together and it’s going to look fabulous when it’s done! #diy #diyblog #diyhouse #renovation #kitchenrenovation #remodel #kitchenremodel #diyblogger #homeimprovement #retrohouse #retroranch #cabinets #kitchencabinets
