Front DoorProjects: Front Door

We have spent the past three years trying to turn this house into our first family home. Ben and I first moved into this house before our son was born.  We came from a downtown Chicago condo.  We had enough furniture to fill one room of this home, plus all of Ben’s kitchen gadgets.  But we love a good project, so we got to work painting, crafting and decorating our way into what is now our home.

Hope you enjoy!
