Things are starting to take shape in my backyard and I couldn’t be more excited! Come and see this week’s progress in week 3 of the 6 week yard transformation, hosted by Nat of Simple Life Crazy Family.
Let’s do a little house math. Take one previously unloved 1920’s character home, add one part innovation and one part hard work and what do you get? An amazingly stylish and functional family home.
This post is the second part in a series about my friends Jacqueline and Marc and their beautifully renovated 2 story 1920’s character home. If you haven’t taken the tour, I highly encourage you to take a few minutes and hop on over to the last post. Don’t worry, we’ll wait.
You know what happens after a morning of watching home renovation shows on HGTV. . .you start dreaming about your own run-down diamond-in-the-rough that you turn around in six weeks. But what if you actually did it?
Minus the 6 week part. . . *crawls in a corner with the memory of her own renovation that was supposed to be three weeks*
My friend Jacqueline and her husband actually did. They bought a run-down character home, did most of the gutting and painting in 6 weeks, then finished the rest as time permitted. 3 years later it’s a gorgeous marriage of character and mid-century modern, with clever solutions hidden throughout.
So grab your favourite hot beverage and indulge in some home renovation fantasy.
P.S.-There’s so many lessons to be learned from their renovation, that I wrote a second post just on the clever ways they made their house work for them.
We’ve come to the part of the renovation I’ve been avoiding. It doesn’t cost a lot of money (thankfully!) but it’s really thankless.
It’s time to deal with the ceilings.
