Pinterest of Interest

Have I mentioned we just bought ourselves a huge late 70′s home? We did.

Have I also mentioned that it is infact the same house my mother and I both grew up in?

It is also a huge project. Some of the bits have had costly reno’s that are amazing. Other bits are outdated and sad looking.

We are pumped. We are ready. We are completely overwhelmed.

And so today’s Pinterest of Interest is born of New Homeowners Panic. Enjoy.
