The Glamorous Side of Renovating

I snapped this photo yesterday while I was getting ready for work.


Oh ya, roller on my vanity! That’s right, cause you never know when you may want to paint something whilst in the bathroom!

I consider myself a fairly honest girl. But I wonder if I may be holding back a few tidbits of reality…like storing paint supplies in my bathroom. Plus when people come to visit I scramble around throwing things in the garage or closets and then wistfully welcome them into my home like it’s no big deal we’re ripping everything apart into a big dirty, dusty, and disorganized mess.

So here are a few “reno reality” photos…I like to call The Glamorous Side of Renovating.

If you’ve ever renovated you’ll look and say, “Ahh Yes, mmm hmm!” and then you’ll nail me with a “Sucker!”

If you’ve never renovated – well I’m sorry – you may want to look away because I’m sure these photos will turn you off permanently.

The toaster isn’t really a renovating photo, but sort of a result of renoing. It’s been sitting there since Christmas time when a bagel got stuck and it caught on fire. I just thought it was a nice final touch to the chaos I currently live in.

Now that I’ve peaked your curiosity, I guess I should add the mess did occur in stages! Progress photos coming up next.

I’m on it.
