      Me neither, Dannyelle! 😉 Something tells me it’ll be at least a month before I’m ready to show any after photos, though.

    The WINDOWS, how wonderful! Since I’m not moving anytime soon, I’m going to live vicariously through your reno. And that arch, ohmygoodness, it made me laugh. Glad it’s going, enjoy your wonderful new home and all those glorious windows!

      The windows are what sold me, too, Deeanna. The arch really is something… Mr. Suburble tried to convince me to keep it.

      I can’t wait to show everyone what’s in the living room now… after Tara the Crowbar-Happy Lady came sashaying through there. 😉

      The windows are a HUGE selling point of the house. I love how much light they let in. Even in the winter time, it’s going to be lovely having such big windows in the back.

      Oh, me too. I am kind of wishing time away because renovations always take longer than you think they will…

    That arch and the golden girls mantle are kinda awesome in a crazy way – can wait to see what you do to your new space!

      Mr. Suburble tried to talk me into keeping them both.

      I can see, if I were maybe a bit more of a risk-taker when it comes to design, how I could use that mantel. But I veer more towards the traditional. Now I have to find one that tops the original!

      The columns are pretty common in the houses in our neighbourhood. It must have been big in the 90s. But it’s all gone now. I can’t wait to share the progress pics!

    Your house has so much beautiful potential. It already looks so bright and airy and big. I can’t wait to see progress pictures.

      It’s much bigger than our last place, which makes it feel palatial to me. There are bigger houses on the block, but I think that this house is just our size. I love the bones of the house: the windows and the french doors and the staircase.

      It just needs a new coat of lipstick. 😉

    Oh I’m still catching up…..I LOVE your new house and I know you’ll do great things with those new gloves and a sledge hammer! LOL! I am so envious of your kitchen windows. I have zero windows in my kitchen. Zero. You are going to have fun with this place Tara!

      I love my windows… but I will admit, when the sun is out – the house gets hot. We don’t live in a warm enough climate that AC is a standard part of living. Most of us don’t have it. So…. that’s something we’re talking about for next year. 🙂
