Now that we have a plan in place and have agreed on a budget, it is time to start the serious business of renovating a kitchen.

How To Plan Your Kitchen Renovation

We are about to start on a couple of major kitchen and bath renovations and it suddenly occurred to me how many people are involved in that process and how overwhelming it could be to someone who doesn’t do it every day. I thought it might help some of you if I simply documented the steps that we go through just to get through the estimate phase. If you can conquer that beast you are good to go.

This will be a two part post so that you don’t fall asleep reading. I will throw in some pretty pictures for good measure.

Photoshoots And Move Ins

I am up to my eyeballs right now in another photoshoot (you should see the van!) but wanted to share with you a peek at what’s to come with a future move in.

We have been shopping, shopping, shopping and after months of dreaming and scheming have finally filled in the blanks on many of the rooms for our scheduled March move-in. The following is a snippet of what was ordered last week. I will be writing more and more about this in the following 8 weeks.

It's almost that time y'all! It made me smile because I have felt a lot like Mr. Bates this month as I have done holiday table settings after...

Decking The Halls: One House At A Time

Last week was a fast blur as photo shoot dates changed hourly but we finished decking the halls: one house at a time.

I can’t share much with you and I really cannot stand that I have to wait a whole year to see these pictures but let me just say that you don’t want to miss the Christmas issue of Southern Lady Magazine next year. These photographers are Santa Claus to me as they deliver one great shot after another. Thank you John O’Hagan, Mac Jamieson, Stephanie Welbourne and Marcy Black Simpson. You are a dream to work with.

Here is a little sneak peek at what we have been up to for the past week. Oh, and NONE of these shots are by the above mentioned folks. LOL
