New Renovation Section

If you haven't noticed, during my latest blog update, I added some tabs at the top of my blog to access different sections. I have an about me section and a recipe index of all the recipes I have tried so far.

Today, I have added a new section on renovations. So far, I have before and current pictures of the front of our house, the living room, master bedroom and guest bedroom. I have also listed for each what projects we have completed and what still needs to be done. I will update the "currents" as we make progress.

Coming next week I hope to have pictures up of the kitchen and dining room.

I am posting the pictures that I have uploaded so far in the main section as well so those of you who read through Google Reader can see!

Beautiful - you've turned a cold house into a warm, inviting home - I love that you took the wall out in the living room/entryway - it opened it up so beautifully! Great color choices, too!

I love this house! Simple, clean, fresh and not chaotic....very lovely. Extremely inviting and definitely has the "Welcome, Come on in!" look.

I love before and after pictures! What big changes - everything looks lovely now! I like that you put color on the walls, painted the window white and removed the blinds.
