I remember being astonished at how inexpensive it was to do the living room in our previous home.
One of the most important elements in our search was neighborhood.
I passed up my picture perfect Colonial loaded with details for an enchanting neighborhood. Okay, I’m still mourning the loss of 2 levels of hardwoods, the floor plan, and butler’s pantry I’ve dreamed of my entire life, but neighbors welcoming us with friendly smiles, cake bites and fireworks on the driving range have compensated for it!
We completed our entire house for under 0 and 1 minor shock.: if you’re not experienced in doing this, hire a licensed electrician or find a great online video source and watch a few tutorials. Also consider replacing yellowed alarms, thermostats and most importantly, smoke detectors.
Don’t all those renovation makeovers on TV look great? I mean, it seems like all you need to do is give your interior a lick of paint, rearrange your furniture, update a few items and your home will look all shiny and new again.
