That brings us to today....in the middle of a humongous renovation of a 3-story, 2,000 square foot townhome. I'm not really sure how this happened so fast, but good days and bad, we're loving the excitement of it all. It's amazing to see something beautiful and well-made when you finish a project. The satisfaction that comes from making something and seeing things transform is infectious...my boyfriend, Mike, has even come around and began to really enjoy seeing his finished work.
We live on a tight budget (thanks a lot, student loans), and most times we have to be creative with how we tackle a big project....like this house thing were working on :) With a lot of patience (and wine, on my part), we're always able to figure it out.
This blog started out with several other names I had thought of, but never really organized enough to publish it. It came to be known as Over-Inspired due to the fact that I love to watch a DIY show, get up off the couch when the episode is over and take a hammer to my walls...exactly the way I just saw them do it on TV! This method has cost me a lot of money at times, and I would suggest actually researching what you want to do before completely tearing your house apart! Anyway, we hope our journey inspires you and helps you figure out the best way to tackle your projects- big and small!
