It’s safe to say that Rob and I love our house. We loved it the minute we walked in and over two years later we still love it! The house was dated but in excellent shape, which meant that nothing needed to be renovated, but we had a lot of opportunity to make it our own and –hopefully — increase its value in the process. Over the past couple of years year we’ve done some little changes: painted a couple rooms, re-stained our bannisters, put up floating shelving, etc. A few bigger projects were also accomplished, like redoing Rob’s office and upgrading our walk-in closet (which is still in progress…). And of course my home office, which is almost ready to share on the blog! But the two biggest things that needed to be done were the kitchen and the family room in the basement.
