We're in, folks! The moving is done, the settling in is in progress, and the finishing touches are being completed detail by detail. Joel and I are still in disbelief that we survived a whirlwind renovation that wrapped up in around exactly six weeks!
One project always led to another. The number one lesson I learned is that if you want to do one home improvement project, plan on having to do two to ten other projects to get where you need to be. Or, at least plan on the project taking more than "one easy step" to do. If you want to do it right - you've gotta have patience - and execute each step in order until the job is done.

I will be adding some DIY tutorials on how to do some of the projects we worked on that I'm really proud of. I just uploaded a tutorial on how to spray paint an oven if you're interested! I also plan to post some Before/After photos and tell you what we did to update our quaint 1920's farm house.
