Introducing Our 2014 Contributor Team

Happy New Year! We are excited to kick off 2014 with a new team of amazing contributors. Each of these talented bloggers will bring so much to Remodelaholic, plus having them here to share their amazing ideas means that I can spend more time actually finishing my projects — which means hopefully I’ll be able to get those tutorials up faster, which I know you all want 🙂

But, enough about me. Let’s get to our contributors. They’ll each be sharing posts soon, so go check out their blogs and see how amazing they are and get excited!!
