It’s official. A year ago last week we found out this house was going to be ours. So that means that last year at this time we were just itching to get our hands on these spaces. We wanted to change things but we had to learn to wait, to learn to be patient. Did I mention wait? 😉
I wish I knew then what I know now; big changes don’t happen overnight!
You would think we would have figured that out after it took us 5 years to fully renovate our last house, but no, somehow with all of our excitement we forgot that important little detail.
HGTV and The DIY Channel fool me with every single episode! You too?
Last year I was dreaming of knocking this wall down between our kitchen and our living space.
After work each night we got to it….
And little by little…
Project by project…
Things started to come together…
Or, should I say, come APART?…
It’s taken longer than a million half hour makeover episodes put together. It’s taken sweat, perseverance and patience, but we finally have one whole space completely finished in our new house. If you’re still hanging around here for a reveal, than I love you and you deserve to swing by for some sweet tea and my homemade, hand picked, berry pies that children write songs about.
So stay tuned, the full reveal is coming up in our next post! I’ll see you there, and we will be sure to save you the biggest piece of fresh berry pie.
Until then, don’t you agree that a new real and raw television show would be one where unsuspecting homeowners are stretched to the limits when DIY-ing and secretly videotaped along the way? You know, cause spouses yelling at each other in hardware stores would make for phenomenal television in my opinion…. right? Entertaining! Don’t you think? Yeah me too. I’m all about sharing the nitty gritty behind the scenes stuff….BUT NEXT get ready for some highly anticipated PRETTY!
