On the list is to get a new backsplash. I will discuss my backsplash disaster and why there is a baseboard on my countertop in a future post.

Hope you enjoyed my home tour. You can look at the befores and afters of our first home flip (1916 craftsman bugalow) here.

AMAZING! So much DIY tutorials and before/afters in one post! Heaven!

Stef! I sure did enjoy the tour (and your first home flip) and I can’t wait to see future projects. You are a DIY superhero! Great job and the details and rooms look GORGEOUS! Thanks so much for allowing me to show it off.

The giveaway is coming together! There are some really talented and awesome vendors joining in! I can’t wait to show off their shops and celebrate the milestones with you!

I’m still trying to catch up on visiting a few of you…thanks for your patience. As you can imagine, it’s been a crazy couple of weeks (if you were here early – you might have caught my blooper! Sorry Stef!). Have a great day!
