The Best of, January 2013 #remodelaholic

Okay, I know I say this every month… but another month has passed us by! 2014 is now 1/12 behind us. So far it’s been a great year for Remodelaholic, and I hope 2014 is treating you well, too!

We started January with a BANG and two big announcements:

Lorene has been behind the scenes here at Remodelaholic for more than a decade! She believes that planning projects and actually completing them are two different hobbies, but that doesn't stop her from planning at least a dozen projects at any given time. She spends her free time creating memories with her husband and 5 kids, traveling as far as she can afford, and partaking of books in any form available.

We love hearing from fellow Remodelaholics, so let us know what you like about this and leave any questions below in the comments. If you've followed a tutorial or been inspired by something you've seen here, we'd love to see pictures! Submit pictures here or by messaging us over on Facebook.
