sometimes when i look at design blogs and see too many perfect rooms, i look around and feel discontent and start to get critical of what i have: i wish my kitchen had white cabinets. the baseboards sure are banged up. didn't i just vacuum?
e and i recently found the 'before' photos of our house, and it left me in awe of how far we've come. how can i be anything but proud of the house i live in?
i've added a little context with each photo:
this banquette was built-in where our fridge now stands.
see the one-and-only window unit that was in the dining room? i love our central a/c.
can't believe it's even the same house. i loved it then, but i love it even more now!
