Our DIY Kitchen Makeover Plans (with Before Pictures)

Do you have a room in your house that is your least favorite room to go in? Probably, but hopefully it's not the same room as mine. Mine, unfortunately for my husband and myself, is the kitchen. The room that is supposed to be the heart and soul of every home, is my least favorite room to walk in. So much so that I will happily go to bed hungry rather than walk in that kitchen to feed myself (bad, I know…)

The Problem with Perfection

I'm finally learning that my fear (and maybe yours too) just needs to be respectfully acknowledged and then, as Elizabeth Gilbert recommends in her book Big Magic, we must learn to travel comfortably with fear without giving up control.
