I know I’ve shown you some of these photos already. And maybe you’re sick of our living room and dining room makeovers? But when I was preparing a before and after photo document for our insurance company this morning (for proof we fixed everything after the ice damming), I realized it would make a great post. Since seeing before and after photos side-by-side is so thrilling, don’t ya think!?!

from it’s past life as a cutesy country coffee table!
