The Fat Hydrangea

Sara Michelle - Columbus, Ohio


"Home should be a place where we can put our feet up, where we never want to leave."

My husband Evan and I moved into this house, our first home, in June of 2011. A center hall colonial built in 1940 with virtually no upgrades, it needed a LOT of work! With a tight budget and big dreams, we embarked little by little on transforming this house into a home. I'm not exaggerating when I say that every surface has been painted (at least once if not more!), every floor has been refinished, every appliance has been replaced, every light fixture has been swapped, and over the course of 6-years, every room has slowly been fixed up and furnished.  

Our little home is proof that with a good vision + you tube tutorials + trial and error + a little (a lot!) of elbow grease can go a long way!

Check out some of the progress we've made below:
