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.
