It’s been a little over six months since I started this blog to keep family and friends up to date on our home improvement projects. Since then, it has become a way for us to log our projects and share our experiences with other homeowners. We hope that readers find our post useful and even feel adventurous enough to take on projects of their own.
One thing I’ve learned since we moved into our own house is that home improvement is not easy. It also requires you to have two wardrobes: “clothes i like” and “clothes i get dirty in.” I still haven’t figured out how the people on HGTV shows do not ruin their clothes. They must have a million of the same shirt and you never see the one with paint all over it.
It makes sense why people pay money for companies or individuals to do their renovations and installations. But when you are newlywed homeowners like us, you work on a budget and your own time.
We’ve been working on projects since we moved in, but now it feels like our house is becoming more of a “home.” People who visit say “I love how your home is decorated” and “you’re home is beautifully decorated.” It feels good to hear such lovely compliments on our style.
Here are a few of my favorite transformations:
The Living Room
The Dining Room
The Kitchen (the addition of the island)
The Wall in the Foyer
We still have more projects in store for this year and as we continue to see our hard work pay off, we hope you find inspiration and come up with your own unique ways to decorate and redecorate your home. If you have any good home improvement stories, sends us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to hear from you!
