Renovate

In the fall of 2017 my husband moved this city girl into the country – and into a barn shaped home no less! We are working one room at a time to make our new fixer upper, which we affectionately call Green Acres, into a modern home we love. Read all about the personal story behind this home and take a BEFORE tour!

We hope that sharing our renovations and home improvement projects will inspire you to do your own! If you’re looking for some inspiration to help you get started, you can look through the project gallery below!

If you’re looking for tips on decorating, renovating or finding your work-life balance, check out the other great project galleries:
