#Stanley90sReno Apartment Therapy tour and before/after!

I am so so happy to share our the before/after--and point you to our home tour on Apartment Therapy!!

I worked with Arthur from AT for our townhouse tour waaaaay, way back, and he was excited to hear about our next home which included way more DIY fixer upper projects, and of course is more of my current style. We shot it last September and it was just published on AT!

Plus, I thought I'd put together a before/after now that I have some pro photos throughout the house. Just remember... we did this in about 8 months, very low budget, almost all DIY, lots of creativity (and stress). Phew!!

Remember you can see the "before" video tour here, ALL the before photos here"after" video tour here, and before/after LISTING photos here. (Oh, and remember you can read more about many of these room makeovers and budgets on my Tutorials page!)

I think you can tell which is the before and which is the after. :P

Man. Looking at those dingy "before" photos, and seeing those clean white walls and updated bathrooms really makes me antsy to have a home to improve again!! (You can read about why we decided to sell here, though those plans didn't work out so now... who knows what's next. House-hunting slowly.)

And thanks so much to Apartment Therapy for featuring our DIY, suburban home tour. It's no historic Brooklyn brownstone or Parisian flat, but I feel so good about the design decisions and process that went into it and am so flattered and proud to share it with a bigger audience.
