So I had this big idea that I was going to write blog posts throughout our home renovation process. Pretty much every square inch of this house is getting a refresh and we’re doing nearly everything ourselves, so really it’s like a less glamorous version of Young House Love and HGTV over here. It was going to be a way to remember all the work we’d done, look back at how far the house had come, and share how we were doing everything for anyone else out there who’s feeling as stupidly ambitious as we are. But then reality set in… in the form of a flooded basement, fifteen projects happening at one time, and utter exhaustion. All while balancing our regular day jobs.
We still have a lot of work to do on this house, but we’ve at least gotten it to a point where we’re comfortable enough to take our shoes off in the house and invite people over for dinner. So now we can slow down and take it one project at a time, and that means I have the energy to document everything we’ve done!
In the meantime I’ll leave you with one of my favorite reno pics so far, from a donut-fueled morning of painting:
