A home in progress

April 27, 2012

Nothing is in its right place at the moment. I look forward to the day when this place feels like a home again, but first some painting. It’s fun!

    Oh Sandra, really love these glimpses of your space. Love that you stick things to the wall with washi tape, & you use a MacBook Pro. It does sound stressful but fun. Good luck!

    This building (and your apartment ofcourse!) is one of the most incredible spaces that I've ever seen!

    I love watching your remodel progress. What gorgeous architecture. We just don't see these kind of buildings in Portland.

    We have just painted several rooms in our house and it has made such a difference. After each room I've thought "never again" – but then I've started with another one… It's an addiction! We have a few rooms left and I can't wait to get started but we need to take a little break first. You know how it is; when you change the atmosphere of a room you suddenly need new curtains, new carpets, new furniture… We're running out of money in this endless circle! 😀
