  1. Love all the makeovers. Anything worth blood, sweat and tears is worth the end result!

  2. I don’t know why everyone knocks old decor. It was put in at a different time when colors and styles were what they were. In 15 years, I don’t THINK I would want to remodel my kitchen, but I probably will. There will be different products, colors and desires. Just like there was 15 years ago and 15 years before that, ad nauseum. Products differ and our tastes differ from years ago. Let’s not ding the past, because it was what it was. We could ding our neighbor’s/friend’s/family member’s choice of decor if they changed it in the past couple of years, but nice people don’t do that to each other. So, let’s not say bad things about past decor challenges. Let’s say our tastes have changed and new products are much more in line with what we want now. Enjoy the process.

    1. You’re right, Fonda, fashion & home decorating styles are always changing! I’m usually so slow to embrace the new trends because I like classics (& vintage). Maybe it’s best to just add a few “in style” items every once in awhile, kind of like we do with our wardrobes. I think a mix of different eras and styles keeps it all looking fresh & creates a more personal, unique home.

    So much accomplished–and time marches on. Harry and Dorothy had such accomplishments in their duplex too. Everything takes work, but fun and satisfying to see the results !!

    This is the way I remember your kiddos! How far your house (and your littles) have come!

    1. Yes, I know, Suzanne! Sometimes Ithink they should still be this age & yes, it’s good to look back to see how far we’ve come with this old house!

  5. I bet you are glad there is an end to the never ending list of house needs. You must be so excited. I am looking forward to the next installment. #soclosetoamazing

    1. I still feel like there’s plenty left to do, Debra, but the problem is our endurance is running thin:(
