Holy House Makeover

I am a total sucker for before and after pics when it comes to home renovation projects. I just discovered this site, young house love, which documents a newlywed couple and the total renovation of their first little home. It's amazing! Go here for before and after shots room by room and a comprehensive list of all their sources. Also, my friend Vanessa has a serious knack for home re-dos. Go here and scroll down a little to see some of the before and after shots of her home.

kim, kim, kim, kim, why are we so much alike? i just told jonathan LAST NIGHT about this couple and their DIY savy new home and that i was particuarly floored by their majorly innovative Ikea wardrobes by the bed-- masking as a continuation of the curtains--freaking genius!!! I was so inspired by this couple that I already have plans to paint our porch beige(not the cool striped thing they did), but still. wierd.

My friend led me to this blog per this EXACT post a while back. I printed it out-I love it. I'd love (for Jake) to do an improvisation in our bedroom for more make-shift closet space.

Hi Kim!

I think this room is beautiful and simple. It is fit for a teen's room because some teens want light color for their room. The carpet also adds appeal to the room. Last year, my room was renovated but we didn't replace our old carpet because it's still useful. My mom was able to maintain the beauty of our carpets because every week, she cleans it with vacuum cleaner or detergent. Or sometimes, she hires services for carpet cleaning. Grand Rapids, our current hometown, fortunately have services for carpet cleaning (Grand Rapids MI-based) that are easy to find. Carpet cleaning services really benefit a lot of moms in lessening worries on household chores.
