Julip Made new house before pictures2
If you follow me on instagram you may have already seen/heard, but for those of you who don't (you should ;)) we recently bought our very first home!  Thus the reason for my major MIA status.  It has been a whirlwind of activity including ripping up carpeting, sanding, staining, painting, spackling, etc.. but in the end it will definitely be worth it.  I'll be documenting and sharing the process as we renovate and it a home in a new "Project Maison" series.  If you want to see where we're moving from, check out "Project Apartment" here.  Below are a few of the before pictures and some of my ideas...
