Get your creative juices flowing…

Last night I was sitting on the couch in my family room, after returning home from an evening walk with my dogs.  I have lived in this house for 8 years now.  And for 8 years I have stared at a blank wall on one side of the room, and a beautiful cherry Federal mantle on the other side.  Both are screaming for attention.  I think that it is time I do something to spice them up.  One of these ideas just may do it!  Or at least get my creative juices flowing…

Which one is your favorite?

Which renovation is your favorite?

I have always loved the architecture of older homes.  When Steve and I were buying our first home, it was between a 1915 cape cod that needed a ton of work, and a 1960’s ranch that only needed an updated kitchen.  My head won over my heart, and we bought the ranch.  I still think about that cape cod, and what we could have turned it into.  I loved looking at these renovated transformations.  Who knows?  Maybe someday I will get the chance to do the same thing, to an older home that is in desperate need of some labor and some love.
