When we moved into our 1952 ranch style home in Milwaukee, WI we were a young family, fresh out of college – and we were buying in the peak of the market. What we could afford was a small, completely outdated home. On the tightest of budgets I found passion in slowly renovating our home until we had redone nearly every surface in the home.

After 5 years of laboring and finally happy with the finished product – it was time to leave Milwaukee and start again in Arizona. After a year of looking we finally landed on home that I absolutely love – but it needs plenty of love. I thought my budget for projects would be a little better this go around, but with a husband that went back to school we’re back on a shoestring budget with a house consumed with mauve carpet. I’ve got vision like you can’t imagine and one day (years from now) it will be the house of our dreams. But for now, we’re tackling it slowly one project at a time…
