SCRATCH THAT & LET’S PAINT

Anonymous by Behr // 7thhouseontheleft.com

First off, here’s what the room looked like when we bought the house… And here’s what the room looked like after the new floors, freshly painted trim and a few coats of paint on the walls. (Obviously, this is the view from the other side of…

We were really excited about the news. Not only do we love having them around, but they would also be our very first overnight guests in our…
