If you ever come to my house and I don’t answer the front door, this is where you’ll find me:   I never knew that an outdoor space could feel like another room in the house, but this area does.

The attic renovation is literally just minutes away from being completely finished!! It is so exciting, and both Husband and I are nearly in shock that everything is actually coming together. :) It has been a huge project, but now is the fun part – the “painting of the canvas” that we’ve created, making it into a home.

I was going to do before & after pictures of this room anyway, and then during preparation for my husband 30th party I snapped these pictures. And no, my dining room is not set up for a dinner party every day! :) It has been SO FUN to decorate this… Read more »
