About Us

Join us, D and K, a couple of 40-somethings, as we turn an outdated and slightly bland 70s ranch into our forever home with paint (lots of paint), flooring (lots of flooring), thrift store finds and DIY projects so it shows our personalities.

We will also be experimenting in the kitchen, getting our hands dirty in the gardening and the yard all the while trying not to fall over laughing at our silly dog, Willow.

  1. New to your blog - I was hoping to find a house tour. Ya know, this is my 70s house when we bought it, and now look at it now fabulous.

    Fellow older home owner,

    1. I have a google site with the listing pics in it. Maybe I should post something so people can see where we started from and how far we have come.


Thanks for your comments. We always love to hear from our readers!
