Thanks for stopping by!
We are two house-loving DIYers now onto our second house. One of us has vision...and one has actual skills.
Design and working on our home are our major hobbies, whenever we have a few moments of free time not devoted to our daughter or jobs. We are hoping to share our ideas, triumphs and mistakes to help other DIYers and get new ideas from all of you!

Past Project: Upstairs Lounge

When we first moved in in February of 2010, we tackled the upstairs first.  We knew we were only doing cosmetic fixes and decorating, so it wasn't TOO overwhelming.  Plus, that way it was a retreat from whatever we were tackling downstairs.
Upstairs we have:

  • our master bedroom
  • a lounge/den area when you come up the stairs
  • my office
  • a dressing room

The great thing about the lounge is that the space was COMPLETELY not used by the previous owners.

What we saw when we first looked at the house

We saw its potential on our visit to the house.  Now it's a great area to watch TV before bed and read on weekend afternoons.  It also makes our small master bedroom feel much more like a  suite.

Enjoy the pictures!   (BELOW)
