We all need it at times.
Especially when it comes to decorating the home.
It’s easy to get stuck in a rut and have no idea how to get out of it.
From self-proclaimed “mom-blog” to successful home blog, the handmade home has some great blog posts about how to improve the home that are truly inspiring.
Her guest blog post on the handmade home was simply incredible.
Just look at this before and after of Destiny’s kitchen before and in progress.

It’s hard to believe that kitchen is a work in progress… It looks so good now!
Our kitchen is going through major facelift this year. I decided in the beginning of January to paint the cabinets and it has been one of the LONGEST most drawn out projects ever! I’m almost positive that for a normal human being, painting cabinets would only take a couple of weeks. But combine a super type B brain, a crazy bunch of tods and a super “hug me right now” husband you got yourself a 4 month paint job.
The living/dining room before… was scary. And to see the way Destiny completely revamped this area is not only amazing, but I just wrap my head around how much better it looks.
What a dramatic improvement! This doesn’t even look like it could be the same home, what so ever. It’s nice to see lighter fabrics used as well as lighter wall color. I can’t emphasize enough how much this opens up the room and makes it feel like a breath of fresh air. It seriously looks like the living room went from dungeon to livable area.
If you thought the living/dining room was grim, you didn’t see the hallway, before.
It’s dark, and gross. There’s no nice way to put it.
The decor is classy, sophisticated, and completely unique to this family. That’s what makes this home so wonderful, is the way Destiny saw this home for what it could be, and made it happen.
I think that’s one of my favorite things about design, thinking inside the box will give you a pretty, functional space. But thinking outside the box allows for charm and character. Follow the rules and break them when you can!!!
