Hello everyone! How was the weekend for you? Mine was super nice (well, for the most part). The best part was having my mom here all last week & a bit during the weekend as well. Oh yes, & she loved the guest bedroom! I miss her so much already. Sometimes I walk into the guestroom & look over at the empty bed wishing she was still here. But, thank God, I'll be visiting NYC & get to see her again in May!
This Monday I'm back with a home tour....submitted to me by Tanya. Both her & her husband live in a townhouse in Ontario, Canada. She also writes a blog called, Dans Le Towhouse where she showcases all the DIY projects that her & her husband have taken on since buying their first home! She says they still have LOTS to do, but their goal is to make the house a HOME.
I know exactly what it's like...when we bought our first place, we were determined to make it a home and we did 95% of the renovations ourselves. Needless to say, I am done with large renovations. It was a great experience and did save us LOTS OF CASH, but the time it took is the worst part!!
You really have to COMMIT to getting it all done in a reasonable amount of time, or your place will just be in shambles for months! Trust me...I knew people who started a renovation project & NEVER finished it! Anyway, on her blog Tanya gives us a glimpse of what it's like outside of the glossy world of magazines!
