A tip for the newbies!!
I soooooo wish someone had told me to take pics of our house before we had everything all moved in or had started renovating!! I have a few pics of our house brand new, but we have updated tons of stuff and I wish I could post before and after pics. We are about to do some major tiling and sure I could take a pic before that, but it's not the same as the true before pic because we have painted, replaced all the hardware to satin nickel, ripped out the builder grade mirror and replaced with his and hers mirrors, added cabinet pulls, etc. Learn from my mistake and take pics so everyone can see the progress you have made! I have no pics of our kitchen from when it had laminate countertops, white appliances, no drawer pulls, no paint and vinyl flooring, now it has stainless everything, hardwood, contemporary cabinet pulls, paint, a built-in wine fridge, and granite *sigh* It makes me kinda sad!
