This Victorian Farmhouse makeover has been many years in the making! Here are alllll of the projects we’ve done in this fixer upper!
We have taken on the biggest ADVENTURE with this 1902 fixer upper Victorian house! We are working on making it our forever home – all while raising 2 little kids! We may be crazy, but we have this feeling like it will be worth it in the end!
Follow all of the progress here on the blog & through my Instagram (look at #FixingUp1902 to see how far we’ve come!)

Our fixer upper journey:
BEFORE pictures & explanation of the process
Our farmhouse kitchen makeover:
We moved into our house in April, and had our second child in May (a few days after we finished our kitchen makeover!)
This kitchen makeover was done 90% by ourselves, and was one of the biggest changes in the whole house. We LOVE this room, and it is so heavily used!
That post is when we just finished it up, and got it all staged for pictures. Look through the #1902Kitchen pictures on my Instagram to get a true feeling of how the room looks and functions now.
Our bedroom makeovers:
We took a little bit of time “off” to adjust to life as a family of four (crazy I tell ya!) Then we went back in full steam ahead! We tackled the master bedroom next:
Our little girl’s nursery was finished a few months after she was born. We used vintage, new and thrifted pieces. I love the neutral color palette with some touches of soft pink:
The last makeover was my kid’s shared bedroom. We went LOVE how the Hale Navy looks with girls AND boys stuff, and we love how it looks with the board & batten. See the whole space here!
The next room we refinished was our office. This room is downstairs and has an open doorway to our family room, so we had to make sure it was functional and looked great too. We used vertical space and got creative with making organizational systems on our walls:
We didn’t move walls (or replace them) in any of our other rooms, but we had to in our small bathroom. If you read the post you’ll see – it was BAD. Rotted floors & salmon pink laminate walls…it’s gotten a major facelift!
And we lived with this BAD BATHROOM as our only full bathroom for two full years until we finally made it over into our most favorite bathroom of all time!

Finally – we finished our farmhouse hallway. I fell in LOVE with our wood ceilings in this hallway – see all of the pictures here!

Your home is actually Edwardian and not Victorian. Victorian style ended in 1901 with the death of Queen Victoria.
