My parents' house is a.maz.ing! It is a Victorian that oozes charm and character. And to top it off, the house was condemned and scheduled to be torn down when my mom drove by and fell in love with it - a DIY dream project (yes, they did/do all the remodeling/building themselves!). I couldn't even begin to tell you everything they have done over the years to the house.
Fast forward to present and here is the lovely house now, with large hardwood trees.
Check out the gingerbread, which my dad made, and the paint colors....my mom paints that house!
The kitchen is my favorite room in their house. The tin ceiling was saved from a downtown building being torn down and the kitchen cabinets and brick arch over the stove was (you guessed it) built by the parentals.
This is just a small, small sampling of their gorgeous house! Why did I share a peek inside the parentals' casa? Because they taught me everything I know about DIYing!!
I do apologize for the picture quality - I did not have a camera and used my iPhone.
