We Have Come a Long Way Baby House Tour- Before, During and After

Like a lot of great things in life, you don’t appreciate where you are now until you realize how far you have come.

Hence, a LONG blog post on our progress so far in our home overhaul.

We still have lots and lots to do, but baby we have come a long way (especially considering  have only been married for 7 months and we have only been renovating for 9 months and the fact that I work two jobs).

  1. Here on the Summer Tour of Homes! Wow- what a great place! I love everything from your front door (ours is similar, great minds think alike!) to that awesome coffee sack covered ottoman. Seriously, I’m impressed with all your projects!

  2. Having renovated two homes I appreciate the amount of love, sweat and sheer hard work that goes into making all decisions, congratulations, it looks great. Enjoy it,
