Well, we (read Charles) couldn't help ourselves. Remember when I said "lipstick-only fixer upper"? Hahahaha, oh how funny that was. It is true! The house is in incredible shape. Just incredibly outdated in its designs. There are custom YELLOW window blinds. YELLOW. Oy.
Before getting into the details of our reno, it's important to know we (wisely) decided to work with the amazing husband wife duo, Catharine and Derek of Klepac & Co to help keep us focused and to complete the changes of our house the best, affordable, and most efficient way possible. Not to mention they both have impeccable taste and are amazing humans to boot.
Alright, so we went through the house with Catharine and Derek and made a big ole list of everything we want to change and decided from that list what needed to get done first and prior to move-in. As of now, that is the following:
Charles and his best friend Josh (pictured above lookin' extra manly) have been doing all of the demo and oddly it already looks better. It helps that Josh is an electrician which helps me sleep at night. I can tell Charles is hard pressed to do a lot of this work himself, but Catharine and Derek are pretty firm that we need to get a contractor in soon (thank you, thank you, thank you!).
So, it has begun! I'm already geeking out over Catharine and Derek's vision board for us over on Pinterest. I can't wait to start picking out samples and seeing it come together...!
