When people want to remodel part of their home,
the question most of us ask first (or should) is:
what can we afford?
I think it's harder for some to have a vision for their space, but truly, it all starts with a vision.
If you are not a visionary, then you probably know one.
When my husband and I bought our first (and current) home, he could not fully see the potential.
I, on the other hand, was planning a remodeling as soon as we bid on it.
Started to rip off the carpet as soon as we signed and were
handed the key of our "new" home.
To give you an idea, this is what our master bathroom looked like when we moved in.
This is how we transformed the space.
Our kitchen then and now.
Our Master Bedroom
I have plenty of projects of our home, so search my blog for more projects on a budget.
I had a vision for this home.
We had a budget...and limited time.
But in the last 8 years we made so much progress.
We learned not to be afraid of paneling,
we learned not to underestimate what we are capable of,
we learned that youtube can be one of your best resources when it comes to "learning how".
Yes, I spent quite some time watching youtube videos about drywall, trim, and much more.
And yes, we made mistakes and redone few things.
What started as our "house",
has become our home.
The memories we have made in this home are priceless.
Like the video of each child learning to walk down the hallway.
Our starter home might very well be our only home...although I still dream of a home with few acres to expand our vegetable garden area and let the kids (and dogs) run free...like the wind.
See, I am a dreamer and visionary.
