WHO? A gal, her Crafty Counterpart and her kids, Thing One and Thing Two. Transplants to Nashville, TN.
Just to be clear: I’m not a writer, photographer, or designer…just a gal who doesn’t fear the fugly.
WHAT? A 70′s modern home, still in the 70′s…but not in a good way. Needs some serious TLC. There’s LOTS to do…and for once, we’ll have some photographic evidence. This started as just a visual journal for the renovations, but it has been evolving, just as our homes do.
As for furnishing this place, my approach is best captured in this interview. I love scrounging for vintage modern bargains, fixing up junk, and sharing what I learn along the way. If nothing in the house is overly precious, then I don’t waste energy worrying about the kids ruining it. Inexpensive doesn’t have to mean boring, though…you’ll see!
WHY? We have big plans for our new digs, and we’ve never had pictures from past renovations. When we started this project, most of our family and friends were far away, and when they were asking for photos, it made sense to direct them all to one location. This, however, has proved futile. I am still expected to provide “hard copies” of photos…Yes, I mean YOU.
So, can we make this place groovy? I don’t know, but we’ll have fun trying!
You can see how it’s coming along at the Tour over in the right sidebar.
Thanks for visiting.
Below: A collection of before shots with the original homeowners items in them. There are no afters in my world…only now, since after would indicate being finished. I’m never finished.
