Bright & Glam Townhouse Tour

We moved into our brand new townhouse in August of 2012, which we got to customize somewhat (see the construction and progress here). I immediately got busy with sewing, painting, spray painting, and other DIY projects.

Our home was featured on Apartment Therapy; see more photos and read the tour here. You can also read the piece I wrote for The Oregonian about low-cost decorating in a new space. (You can see photos of our brand new empty home here.)
