Kitchen Reno: Before and After

After 13 weeks, my kitchen is almost done. Hallelujah! In the spirit of updating our Cheverly homes, I thought I’d share how mine turned out. When we moved into our current Cheverly home, it didn’t have a kitchen. It was a HUD owned property and we were told that we would have to put 80K…

OLD is the new NEW

Don’t laugh at my the headline. It’s true and you’d you know if you watch HGTV’s show with Nicole Curtis: Rehab Addict.

Before and After: My Walk-through Room

This is my second home in Cheverly. I fell in love with it for a number of reasons–the large open space, the two sets of stairs, the tall ceilings… Boy oh boy, it was a ton of work. My husband thought I was crazy when we first looked at it but I was thrilled about…

Home Decor: Community Forklift, Vintage House Parts

If you come over to my house every two weeks or so, you will notice a change. Couches have been moved. Chairs have new pillows. Where are those lamps? As a little girl I loved changing rooms with my sisters—and if we weren’t changing our rooms, I was changing my own room.  Bed would be…
