before & after

Today I wanted to share with you the mother of all before and afters. I could have shown you my favorite room, or a favorite before and after project, but I decided to show you my entire home. Because believe me, when we bought this 122 year old diamond in the rough, she needed a lot of TLC. Looking now through the pictures I actually cant believe that we bought this house, but I thought she had "good bones" and I was more than right.
