Every good movie has a sequel (Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit, anyone?) so it’s about time we debuted the follow-up to last fall’s partial-house tour. Sherry’s back in her starring role as “tour guide” and I’m directing again, but the set is much improved this time around. Not only do we have a completed kitchen to share, but this time we take you through the bedrooms, the other bathroom, and even let you a peek inside our fridge. As you’ll see, a lot can change in five months.
So grab some popcorn, silence your cell phones and enjoy. (Also, please excuse Sherry’s blurry face in the very beginning. The censored look wasn’t intentional.)
Note: If the video above isn’t working for you, click here to see the tour on YouTube.
That was so entertaining! Your house really looks like the finished product on one of those HGTV shows! I don’t know how you have everything so clean and organized! And the host of our tour? Adorable! I’m going to watch it again and get more inspiration for my own house… until I run out of popcorn. Thanks for sharing!
I just love your house! You two have great style. Thanks for the tour!
What a great tour… and you did it all in one take, too. Bravo! But the house seems almost finished now – aside from turning that work space into a nursery “soon” ;) You guys did a great job on your house. Love the kitchen transformation the best.
oh virtual house tour! sherry you are so fun to watch, one can easily tell you are totally in love with your house. Your site is such a great inspiration!
Your home is beautiful. We are just starting to remodel our 38 year old house (1970!) and I’d love for it too look as gorgeous as your house when we are done. Great work and thanks for the tour.
Fun! I loved your tour!

How fun! Everything looks great, guys. :-)
Thanks for devoting seven minutes of your lives to watching our humble house tour. Sorry about the sad production quality and bad lighting. If only we had a camera crew at our beck and call. Anyway, so glad you guys enjoyed sneaking a peek.
Stay tuned for other videos (a basement, garage, and outdoor tour of our patio, fire pit and more…) and probably another house tour in a few months because things change so regularly around here. We’ve already rearranged the living room and the third bedroom since the taping. It’s a sickness, people.
And of course we have a full master bathroom renovation on the agenda…
Your house looks so great! You can tell you’ve put a lot of work into it. Nice job!
Love your blog and the tour was wonderful! You have given me many ideas. I’m planning on starting a map w/the push pins next. Thanks.

Fantastic! You’ve done a terrific job; you should be very proud of yourselves!
One thing I have to throw in: I actually love the bathroom as-is. Of course it might not look as nice close up as it does on the video, but I would honestly buy a house just for a bathroom like that. I love the basketweave!
It had to be said. I wouldn’t have been able to sleep tonight. :)
I know what you mean! I was lamenting to John that if the bathroom really looked as good as it looked on the video I wouldn’t dream of touching it! The truth is that there’s a 2 inch gap between the tile and the tub and the whites of the basketweave tiles are more of an old dingy yellow from age. There are cracks and holes in the floor and the wall tiles, so sadly it can’t be saved (I even looked into reglazing but it wouldn’t work longterm).
But that’s not to say that we won’t replace the old yellowed, cracked tile with exactly the same vintage look. The basketweave and white wall tiles are definitely something we’d love to stay really close to. It’s so true to the period of our house. So don’t worry that we’ll be bringing in anything too new or trendy!
Stay tuned to see how it all goes down…
I stumbled upon your blog and I LOVE your house tour! What a cute idea, AND your home is absolutely tour-worthy. I will def watch this again and again to get ideas. I did cringe when you said you were taking out your antique bath tile – I think it has so much character! But whatever you decide to do, it will look great!
OOPS, I didn’t read your response above – okay you can change out the tile ;)
Just stumbled across your blog, and had to post! LOVE the home tour! I can’t wait to read the rest of your blog. :)
I love your home and decorating style! Where is the pendant light in the dining room from?
Great Job! :-)
The pendant light above the dining table is from CB2 (a steal for only forty nine beans). If you’d like more info, we posted about it here (it’s called the double dip pendant lamp):
Thanks! Did you have an electrician “hard wire” it? I bought one just like it at CB2 this summer and was told it couldn’t be converted and that it had to be plugged in.
Thanks for the help!!! Love the blog!
John here. We did have an electrician hard wire the CB2 lamp into the ceiling, so it can be done! He installed it the exact same way we hung the West Elm capiz lamp in the master bedroom ourselves. Just cut the plug off the end of the cord and you’ll expose two wires, which can be hardwired directly to the wires in your junction box.
You can probably do it yourself (if you’re comfortable around wires and electricity). If not, any electrician should know what to do with it.
Thanks! I appreciate you taking the time to answer my question!
I have the same capiz lamp only in the floor lamp style! It’s fab!
Sherry (love your name by the way…hee hee)…you are adorable, and so is your home!! I love how you guys have EVERYTHING you need in your space, a den, a large garden, a game room/sun room, a desk/office, a wrapping/craft station, letter writing station, a porch, and a fab kitchen. You guys definately found a treasure in your ‘old house’ and are making it your dream home. You’re letting the world know that you don’t have to have a mansion to get every room you want in one house, and be organized at the same time!!
In your video you say ‘food shopping’!! Let me guess, at the Food Store!!! I had a roommate from New Jersey and she always said food shopping and food store…. so funny. Also, your shirt looks like it’s from the limited, if so, I have one just like it!!
I lived in Richmond (shockoe bottom, tobacco row… i miss it) but now reside in Hampton Roads!! Love the blog, scrolling thru old posts lately!!
Yup, I’m a total Jersey Girl. And that shirt is from The Limited. Funny. It’s a small world.

I AM LOOKING AT THE ARIETTA 30″ GLASS RANGE HOOD ANY COMMENTS
We don’t have any experience with that model, but years later we’re still loving our stainless range hood by Arietta. Hope it helps!
I remember from your blogiversary video that you enjoy the “DIY hairstyle” of the ponytail but I just have to say that I’m LOVING your haircut in this video! So cute.
Haha, thanks! I did the whole grow your hair long for the wedding and then get married and chop it off thing!
