BOTB 8.8.14

August 8, 2014

Weekend greetings! We’re making more progress on the house this week, the carpet installation and new baseboards have made it move in ready, we’re excited! Only one more week left to work on this renovation, we will be installing new light fixtures and bringing a few furnishings inside. Then we will return to California since the kids are back to school the following week and I’m looking forward to getting back to a more normal routine – I’ll share another progress report on the reno before we depart.

It’s ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ Friday again, and this week Amanda and I bring you our favorite projects spied around the web.
