House Crashing: Inspired & Inexpensive

After Jordan and Landon shared their amazingly affordable (and drop dead gorgeous) kitchen overhaul with us (here), we definitely were left wanting more. So when they offered up the opportunity to House Crash them, we said “uh… yes please.” And we figured since it’s their house they’d be the best at showing you around, so we’re passing the virtual mic over to them for the tour while we clean our house within an inch of it’s life in an effort to woo a few more potential buyers this weekend (fingers crossed). Enjoy the tour!

Welcome to our home in Columbia, South Carolina! We’re Jordan & Landon from

You’ve already seen the kitchen (here), but we’ll share that pic again, just to refresh your memory:

This is our dining room. The wine bottles come from one of our favorite wedding venues that we shoot at often! We had them hold the bottles for us (and we bought a bottle cutter on eBay).

That’s actually a DIYed mirror leaning against the wall. We bought mirrored closet doors on Craigslist for $40 for the pair and then found an old weathered pallet, took it apart, and made two mirrors (one for in here and one for the hallway).

Our dining table is an amazing thrift store find that people ooh and ahh over. It was just 10 bucks! The chairs and bench were bought at a yard sale, and the ottoman was a throw out item from a friend.

Next we have our living room:

As you can see above, Landon made two frames out of more pallets. We really love that rustic wood (its kinda all over the house). We made that ottoman which was actually inspired by Kara’s DIY ottoman that you shared!

Oh and that old wine bottle crate in the foreground works as an awesome magazine holder. We also love our little DIY end tables which we made from vintage suitcases on legs. We also like those hanging baskets from Ikea on the wall next to the sofa (it was actually an idea we stole from the ikea catalog). The doors on the wall above the bookcases are original doors from the home, so we wanted to incorporate them into the room.

Next we have our master bedroom, where we added the beadboard wainscotting ourselves and hung a bunch of inexpensive frames that I sprayed white on the wall in a group.

And here’s our master bath. Can you tell we have a think for big mirrors? We love how they open things up and make rooms feel lighter and bigger.

This is our awesome little hallway! Its my favorite space in the house! Its about the size of our other rooms! The chairs were thrifted for $40 and we recovered them. That’s also the second homemade mirror that we made with the mirrored doors from Craigslist and the weathered wood pallet. We also grabbed that lotus light fixture from Ikea.

This is our office / crafts room. We thrifted that awesome craft table for 5 bucks. We also love instruments (we love music around here since my dad was a musician, and Landon is one as well… I sing, but technically that’s not a musician). Anyway I love how the blue guitar fits so perfectly in this room and that it gets to be a piece of art on the wall.

This is the spare bedroom. We found the bed on Craigslist and I bought those awesome orange curtains for about $1.50 at Goodwill!

This is our spare bathroom that we just finished off! It was a huge mess before! It’s so very tiny, so its kinda hard to show off in pictures, but I tried! That is your sink and faucet by the way (I was inspired by your bathroom overhaul) so we ordered them and added them to an antique wash stand that we found! And of course we have another huge mirror, but it really makes this bathroom feel so much bigger!

Ok, so that’s our house. Thanks so much for sharing it! – Jordan & Landon

So who’s jealous? Our hands are officially raised. Thanks so much to Jordan and Landon for sharing their home and all of their affordable DIY ideas. We’re sufficiently inspired. What was your favorite part everyone?

    OMG! I am 100% in love with those DIY mirrors! We also have a thing for weathered wood and I am always looking at inexpensive ways to make things myself out of it (I can’t bELIEVE the prices people put on old barn wood furniture!).

    Thanks for the great tips!

    Do you have any instructions on how to make those mirrors?

    This post is going in my inspiration folder for sure. I love the neutrals with pops of intense color and the rustic-meets-modern look.

  5. Niki says

    I love the guest bedroom! I have grey walls in my master bedroom but it looks nothing like that. What an inspiration! The orange and dark woods look amazing together! Thanks for sharing!

    sorry for so many exclamation points. I was really excited :-)

    Your house is beyond beautiful! I found myself falling more in love with each picture! I love all your craigslist finds that make your house look so comfortable and lived in while still looking incredibly current! I must say I literally gasped when I saw your dining room wine bottle chandelier! That is amazing!! Do you have a tutorial on that? My hubby and I dabble in making homemade wine and that is just so us! Thanks for sharing your fantastic home!

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this!! Their house looks like it belongs in a magazine! I love how the rustic wood frames and and some of the other little touches make things look collected over time.

    I remember seeing the kitchen makeover before and thinking that’s pretty close to my dream kitchen. After seeing the rest of the house, I think I’m ready to move in! I love that so much of it were cheap finds, but they don’t look cheap. The house flows really well together.

  9. Erin F. says

    I really love the large mirrors and picture frames made from the pallet and the blue mirror over the fireplace. My favoret space has to either be the dining area or the hallway. Great job!

  10. Brittany says

    DREAM HOUSE!! I love everything and feel very inspired to change some things up in our home! : ) Thanks for sharing!

  11. says

    Wow! It’s amazing how you were able to do such great things with thrifted items. Thank you for the inspiration! I love the large mirrors, they look old and rustic, which is exactly the look I want!
