An Updated Chicago Condo Tour

Remember when we helped B’s little sister makeover her Chicago Condo? Can you believe that was already 2 years ago?!

We’ve been meaning to go back and snap a few pictures so you guys can see how the place has changed (or not) since we shared it here on the blog. Our holiday break proved to be the push we needed to finally check this goal off of our to-do list.

But for those of you who may have joined the DIY Playbook since Maggie’s Makeover, you can catch up here:

And once you get caught up, we hope you guys enjoy an updated Chicago condo tour of Maggie’s place, complete with updated links to as many of the items as we could find. Spoiler alert: the place looks pretty similar and Maggie reports she still loves it, which makes this Chicago condo one of our favorite makeovers to date.

A Chicago Condo Tour… Two Years Later



Then and Now

As you can see, not much has changed since we left but I guess that shows how much this setup has worked for Maggie on an everyday basis. She has done lots of entertaining here and has already made such great memories!

The only thing on her immediate to-do list is to update the living room rug because this one has seen lots of traffic. We’ve been keeping our eyes peeled for the perfect piece, but haven’t had much luck yet. 

In the meantime, huge thanks to poor Maggie for letting us come take over her place! She’s always such a great sport and we loved the chance to check-in with a little update. Just for fun, let’s take a peek at these dramatic before & afters ONE LAST TIME!
