Everything else was found, given or earned instead of pay for one thing or another. I loved that little room. Marrying Beth a year later made it even better! :) I love any room with a good story. In fact, crafting rooms filled with life's treasured tales is my absolute favorite and best work.

I loved that super efficient storage closet in my first bedroom. The best story in the room, however, revolves around the art deco nightstand at left. My very first antique acquisition straight out of college and purchased with my first meager earnings! I was so excited about picking it up and taking it home during a lunch break that I missed a neighborhood stop sign just in...More
