I can't believe I have been blogging for this long, 7 years! Holy cannoli batman! That doesn't just make me a dinosaur, that makes me like older than dinosaur dust! haha. I started blogging pre-Pinterest, that's telling you something :) And I have to say, so much has changed since my first couple of years of posting! Pinterest has changed everything and completely made everyone, not just me, up their game. Seriously, you should see my photography skills back in the day :) They were pathetic, dark and so unwelcoming. I just used a cheapo point and shoot camera. I think like the max megapixels was 500kb. Seriously though, that's why some of these pictures are such low quality :) Back then it didn't matter so much about photography, just about the tutorial.
Every anniversary, I like to take a walk down memory lane and pull up some old...old photos I have of my house when I first started blogging :) Some of these are embarrassing, but it just shows to tell how a little time, elbow grease, and a complete change in style can change your house! I would say my style back in the day was "Tuscan". I wanted Venetian plaster all over my walls in brown and yellows. Yeah. I'm glad that never happened! That would have been a pain to paint! A crazy thing though, all my main pieces of furniture are still around :) It just shows if you purchase neutral pieces, they can carry on with you even when you decide to change things up a bit.
Okay, ready for complete embarrassment on my part? (as I hide under the 20 pillows on my couch haha). Here you go!
My entryway before:
barn doors were a HUGE change to this space, especially since the way it looked last year not just 7 years ago. I love the character it has brought to the space.
