Today I’m sharing the first of what will become monthly blog swaps. I’ve met so many amazing bloggers over the years, and I wanted to share some of these talented designers. Today’s blog swap is with Cami of Tidbits. You will absolutely love Cami and her gorgeous home…
Hello Sincerely, Sara D. readers! Isn’t Sara a breath of fresh air on this world wide web??!! I’m so honored to be here today to introduce myself to you.
Since I come to Sara’s place to be inspired by drop-my-jaw room transformations (I’m sure that’s one of the reasons you follow her too), I thought I’d share a few of my own room makeovers with you that I have done and shared on my blog TIDBITS.
But first, I want to share one of my first interactions with Sara, which happened to be in real life at Haven Conference. We were both nervously awaiting our turn to pitch in person to Home Depot for a project or room makeover. I wish you all could have seen Sara. She had beautiful huge prints showcasing her kitchen and family struggling to all work in the poorly planned space at the same time. Then she had a perfectly laid out plan to transform the space into the dream kitchen we all now know and love. Needless to say, Sara crushed it that day, got the sponsorship, and we all benefited from seeing her create our dream kitchen in all it’s lovely glory. Also needless to say . . . I didn’t get the job . . . but have never forgotten this sweet gal and came out with a new friendship that I just treasure! That’s a win for me!
Now let me take you through some of my favorite before and afters from the TIDBITS home. Our home is an outdated 1990’s rambler style home, and we’ve slowly been making our way through every room giving it new life. In case you haven’t visited before, I like to define my style as a mix between a Farmhouse in France and a Cottage on the Coast, with lots and lots of white 😉
Most recently, I shared some basement bedroom makeovers for my 3 girls. A basement can be a scary place, but making it beautiful takes care of that! Trust me!
Here is one bedroom before:
Then the “after” where we turned it into a Blue and White Cottage haven, with lots of DIY’s and tutorials like
Now, here is a little peek at the AFTER!
The other dark and dreary downstairs bedroom started like this:
And ended up being the cutest French Cottage Girls Bedroom. To think I found those beds on Facebook Marketplace!!
Another favorite makeover we did was my home office. It’s amazing how much more productive I can be when I have an organized and beautiful space for work and family matters.
The before of this space after we moved in:
Mr. TIDBITS is the super handy husband who made that desk and 18 drawer Apothecary cabinet. Isn’t she beautiful?!
Another favorite transformation was the Master Bathroom.
And here is what the bathroom looked like in my most recent Spring Bathroom Refresh. It’s where I go to relax and renew my mommy powers.
Now if you want a really drastic change, check out what the kitchen looked like when we moved in.
Lots and lots of DIY work later . . . what our kitchen now looks like after a Spring Kitchen Refresh.
Can you see the hints of Farmhouse in France and Cottage on the Coast?
Finally, I’ll leave you with a look at our living room before and after.
This one took lots and lots of paint to get our current living room look, and is now a light and bright place we love to hang out.
Keep in mind, all this took over a 5 year period, and I actually have way more to show! Home wasn’t built in a day 😉
I love doing Seasonal Home Tours as well, so CLICK HERE to check out all my home tour goodies from over the seasons.
On a more random note, I also wrote an Instant Pot cookbook with my sister Marci, who now runs the food side of TIDBITS. You can also check out that book and how that came to be. I usually consider that my great Sister Makeover 😉
I’ve enjoyed being here with you today, and sharing a bit of my work. You can also find me on all social networks, my favorite being Instagram and the one I’m pouring a lot of my soul into right now is my YouTube channel.
I hope to get to know you over at TIDBITS! Thanks for having me Sara!
