Inspirational website

A long time ago, someone sent me a link to a website called Young House Love. It’s about a couple our age who bought a 54 year old house, and in the past 4 years have updated and renovated it to create a beautiful, stylish home for their family. I love reading their website, and at the time it inspired me to start this blog.

I had lost the link until today, when Joanna linked to it on Twitter. I was very excited! I spent part of the evening reading through it again, and getting inspired.

It’s easy to get discouraged about our house because the projects seem so expensive. We don’t *have* $15,000 to fix our foundation. We probably will never have the money to do all the things I want, like tear out all the paneling and put in drywall. I’m trying to be content with what we have.

If you want to get inspired, take a poke around Young House Love, especially their before/after pictures. Hopefully our house will look just as beautiful someday. :-)

  1. Thanks for posting the link! I’ve been addicted to the site ever since, and I’m already dreaming of redecorating once we get into our “forever” home. :-)

    Their style is almost exactly what I’d like to do, except given the choice I’d pick a 1930s bungalow over a 1950s ranch. I love how they’ve started from scratch and learned to do so much themselves and have taken 4 years to get to where they are now–it’s so encouraging for me since I’d love to try my hand at renovating an older home. I also love how they stick to a realistic budget and try to keep their home simple and uncluttered.
