Our first official before and after. Woooooh that feels good. When I look at these pictures that Sergey took, and especially when I compare to the before, I can’t quite believe we did this. One of the downsides of living through a renovation – particularly one that takes months – is that there is no official “reveal,” no quick door over. Its not like those HGTV shows when the homeowners get to leave and come back to a completely new space. The transformation happens gradually, and you kind of get used to how the space looks before its fully done. But THESE PICTURES make up for that a bit. You can really, really tell the difference.
