Oh, blissful day!  What joy, what ecstasy!  Our front room remodel project is now moved to the “completed list.”  The months of blood, sweat and tears; the planning and prepping; the living with sawdust and sheet rock dust all.over.the.house; the happy dances over an accomplishment and the bad words of frustrations (yes, I’m being real here) have all come to an end…in this room at least.  I am rejoicing, folks.  I Am Rejoicing.

The necessary “before and after photos.  (Except that we didn’t take pictures of the true “before.”  Why is it that I forget until something has already been demolished or repaired?)

My man did a TON of work, but yes, I was involved too even though most of the pictures have me behind the camera.
