My husband Stephen and I moved from Arkansas to Denver, CO in 2014, and we are loving life in our new state with our two little girls. I always have a project up my sleeves and love sharing renovation tips and tricks on my way to Before & Afters. I love inspiring others to tackle DIY projects because being proud of where you live starts with saying "I did that myself!"
Welcome to Heardmont - I'm so happy you're here!

On Monday we showed you the updates we made to our kitchen cabinets over the past week or so, but the process wasn’t quite over yet. After painting the area above our cabinetry, we still had to go back and … Continue reading
