I am SO sick of being a renter. I live in the middle of Wyoming. You wanna know how much I pay for rent?!! $1300. You might think that's not bad. It wouldn't be if I had something to answer for it. I have no yard and no square footage. Our unfinished basement and un-fenced "backyard" has what has kept me sane.
But the time has come to make a big change. We need to get out of our rental and buy a home. I am unhappy in this house. I live in a crowded neighborhood. I do not feel like I am home, yet this is where we have settled. This is where I want to be happy. But it is hard to be happy when I can't plant my roots.
We still own a home in Idaho and it has brought with it a lot of expense. That means that there is not a lot of money saved up for a down payment for a new home and certainly not enough for any home renovations. Every home we look at in our price range needs some TLC. Let me show you what I mean:
This is our family favorite at the moment. We love the floorplan in this house, but it lacks any character. The bones are great, but it's a bit.....vaBlah!
I would LOVE for Mandi from Vintage Revivals to come and help make my new, though kinda old, house into a home. Every thing Mandi touches turns to gold....or something equally dazzling. I love her work and every time I see her work, I feel all giddy inside.
