Laura is a dear dear friend, my very first friend I made when I moved to Canada (even though she’s from Oklahoma). We met on cyberspace through her awesome blog saskmom.com. I
Laura and her family live in a cute infill in a very hip neighbourhood. As nice as their house is, it still lacks those personal touches, which has always bothered my very cool, bright eyed, colourful friend. She intended to imprint more of her personality onto this builder grade home, however life kept getting in her way (doesn’t it always).
Part of the challenge is that her lovely husband, probably just like most husbands, is perfectly fine with things the way they are, because seriously, it looks just fine. He cannot justify spending loads of money replacing something that is good to begin with. So… he has given us a budget of $500, and is willing to tackle any reno work himself. Awesome!

Here is Laura’s wish list for her space:

- New lighting above the island (her very tall hubby keeps bonking his head!)
And just for kicks, the cute little helpers:
P.S. Laura will be blogging about her project too, so you can look for updates on her blog as well.
