REMODELING. That word probably conjures up one of three reactions in you: 1. excitement, 2. dread, or 3. excitement followed by dread.
Tackling a remodeling project in your home is a large undertaking. It can cause excitement in many folks because of the opportunity to transform the house into more of what you love and need — and planning a new space can be a lot of fun (I personally enjoy choosing new colors, fixtures, and decor), but it can also invoke a sense of dread because of all the work and money that goes into it… not to mention time and being displaced from the space for a bit.
Remember when I wrote about surviving my kitchen remodel while still living in it?
Well, we finished it a couple months ago (finally!), and I’m thrilled with the results. It was completely worth every displaced moment, every drop of sweat, every tear, and every dollar.
Here are a few photos of the new kitchen! (Isn’t it pretty?)
We finished the remodel successfully (and happily) because we planned it out, and set a budget.
You can, too! There are a few pre-project tasks to tackle first, and we’ve created a one-page checklist for you to use before you start your remodeling project. Organization is key, after all. Once you’ve finished with the pre-project to-do’s, download this Remodeling Planner + Budget Worksheet so you can write down your goals, get inspired, and plan the project from start to finish.
