Take a peek inside our Fixer Upper now that I’ve “decorated” for Fall.
I’m a little late in posting this, but I had a request to see an updated Fall Fixer Upper Home Tour.
One of the original real estate photos.
We bought our ranch-style home five years ago for the lowest price per square foot in our neighborhood and we’ve been slowly updating it as we have the funds. You can see past home projects HERE.
A couple of notes:
- I spend very little on decorating so most of what you see including the furniture came from the thrift store.
- My goal is to create a cozy, peaceful space where we can feel relaxed, but I also like adding quirky pieces that I find interesting.
- It’s all a work in progress and this is just the current iteration.
This is the view coming in the front door.
The living room is to the left, the dining room straight ahead and the kitchen to the right across from the dining room.
Once you enter, you take an immediate left into the living room (across from the entryway table). Our pup loves to sit on the back of the sofa to soak up the sun and keep an eye out for stray cats wandering into the yard.
Our sofas are SO old (like from the 80’s old), but they are what we have for now so I’m making the best of it. I love the punch of color the pillows add.
Back to the entryway, this is the entryway table with my Fall Coastal vibe.
I don’t love it, but I wanted to use items that I already had around the house rather than buying anything new, so here we are.
I do love this part of it because these are all shells and other natural objects that I’ve found on walks.
You can see the dining room from the entry way, but not the kitchen. The open layout is great for hosting guests.
Here’s a closeup of my little Fall display on the corner shelf in the dining room/kitchen. The pumpkins are from Walmart, the lights in the jar from the Target Dollar Spot and the copper sparrow was a gift from my sister.
And this little guy on the top shelf came from Walmart as well. I can’t decide if he’s cute or tacky, but I love him and I couldn’t help myself.
Here’s a close up of the shelf behind the table.
The green and dark turquoise plates on the shelf reflect the flowers in the painting on the opposite wall.
By the way, I had someone comment recently that my room would look a lot better without my “cheap” shelf.
Well, here’s the thing:
I like it.
And it’s just not a priority for me to spend a lot of money on a trendy or more modern shelf. I decorate based on my budget, my priorities and my tastes, which probably isn’t what’s “in” on Instagram.
And I encourage you to do the same. Decorate your home based on what YOU like, and don’t worry about what other people think.
If you’d like to see how the rooms flow together, you can see a video walk-through on my Instagram profile. Click the Fall Home Highlight.

Cheering You On!

I love these posts! It looks very nice. I can tell you love your home & take a lot of pride in how it looks. ♥️
Thanks so much Kira! 🙂
I enjoyed seeing an update to your interior. (The real estate photo furniture not too bad but it does not look coastal, too dark IMO.)
I know you have had a lot of work done on the exterior also. I’m happy for you & fam that you have a home of your own. You remodel as you have the funds. I’m concerned about future economic downturns that are worse than what we have now in the US. I’m not going to spend a bundle of $ right now either to remodel. It’s a want not a need.
Thanks Laurel! And I think you’re smart to be conservative with your money right now. 🙂
Thanks for sharing, Kimberlee! I love that how you decorate is simple, affordable and stylish!
Thanks so much Jessica! 🙂
