This makeover is kind of a cheat. The previous owners used it at as an office, so that's our 'before' picture. However, that doesn't undermine its lovely makeover. Brecklyn's mommy painted the walls grey three times because she couldn't get the color quite right. When she… Continue Reading
We've told you all about the plans for our bedroom, and our dining room, and this week we're back to tell you a little bit about what Emily Henderson has in store for our living room. And P.S.: The notion that Emily Henderson has anything to do with our house will never get old.
