For those of you who happened to tune into The Nate Berkus Show last week, I hope you spotted two familiar faces! That’s right, Ken and I had the pleasure of welcoming Nate’s kind audience into our home a few months ago, and the segment has officially aired!

Click on Nate's photo to watch us on the show!

And because the renovation magic all began here on HGTV.com, I thought I’d share links below to a few of the projects we shared on the home tour, just in case you’ve missed a few along the long, wild ride!:

The Entryway:
Our modern, quirky entryway used to be a coat closet before we opted to widen the hallway for a more charming welcome. See the before here, and of course, the amazing after!

The Entryway Shelving Unit:
Our focal point of the entryway is the open shelving unit we created with reclaimed wood. Check out the DIY video we filmed to create the look in your own home!

The Living Room:
Did you catch that gorgeous hand-painted wallpaper we transformed into art in the living room? In case you missed it, watch the entire living room makeover unfold here!

The DIY Staircase Railing:
Want more details on our staircase railing solution that Ken shared in the tour? Check out our custom wood and glass railing tutorial here.

The Kitchen:
We’re crazy in love with our kitchen; remember when it was little more than studs? Enjoy our kitchen before and after makeover here. And don’t forget the glass backsplash tutorial we’ve shared since the tour!

The Dining Room:
Our dining room was a dramatic transformation indeed; check out the insane before and after dining room tour here, featuring that gorgeous DIY rustic dining room table Ken built. Of course, the biggest statement in the room is that beautiful Swedish fireplace. In case you can’t quite remember what it used to look like (warning: it’s hideous!), enjoy the surprise fireplace reveal here. (Bonus points if you spotted the concrete mantel in the video tour!)

The Office:
Our light-filled and bright office is full of DIY touches we shared with Nate – from our custom art wall to those modern plywood cube shelves. Our quirky desk makeover even made a debut!  (Don’t forget a recent addition since filming: that handmade dog crate coffee table!)

Our Master Bedroom:
My goodness do we have a lot to share about this room! It’s changed a lot since our master bedroom progress update where you first spotted those DIY wood-planked ceilings I love so much. Since then, we’ve installed a custom closet solution, updated the closet hardware and built a DIY headboard with reclaimed wood.

Nate’s favorite touch? Our wood-planked ceilings (and I can’t say I disagree with him!). So tell me, friends – can you believe how far we’ve come in two short years? We’ve still got a bit to do, but I’m so proud (House Proud, even!) of the progress. Thanks for loving our home as much as we do, Nate, and thanks to you all at HGTV.com for joining us every step of the way!

    When watching the segment on Nate, I saw the lighting fixture, over the dining table. Whose is it? Also, what brand of windows did you choose for the sunroom? They look like what we are going to use in our new room.
