Kristen and her husband Chris (who, with their matching names could have totally named their blog, like “Kriss Cross” or something else really wiggity wiggity wack) have chronicled their exploits in renovating on their blog Nails and Thread.
One of the first items of business was de-grampa-ifying their living room. The blue carpet had to go, as did those vertical blinds. Look what was hiding behind them! What a great window.
But the most dramatic improvement came by opening up that back wall into the dining room. SO much better. Thanks for sharing Kristen!
