Even though I failed to come across a enormous quantity of ‘before’ pics, the kinds I did locate go a extended way to display the sheer quantity of operate Johanna and her spouse and children have put into transforming the residence into a attractive house. Not only that, but they also display what you can do with a very little vision, Do it yourself, up-cycling and a lot of wallpaper!
