Hello everyone!
So glad to connect on this site! My husband and I live in Ontario, Canada. Ten years ago we picked up our kids and life and moved back to the area where we grew up. We love it here but struggled finding a home with our wish list attached. So we compromised by purchasing a home that had all the potential property and with a few renos the potential to be fabulous and cozy country home! We do all all of our own projects along with 2 kids, 2 full time jobs and a very busy life otherwise. We have removed a wall, redid the kitchen, bathroom and installed hardwood flooring throughout most of the main floor with the intention to do the balance at some point. The house is log though and all of the outer walls of the kitchen and living room and dining areas are covered in knotty pine. I would like to paint this knotty pine but everyone is freaking out about this which is making me hesitant and thus I have done nothing so far! To boot I am not brave about colour and even though I am creative... I need inspiration!
