Our Home- Ballard Designs Taste on a Target Budget

Ten years ago when our middle son was diagnosed with Autism, my self-employed husband cut his clientele by over half so I could go back to working full-time hours for the insurance and to keep the boys out of daycare. Note: He DID tell me that he wanted to see what it was like to be a stay-at-home-dad. Haha! This huge decrease in income has forced us to become wiser with how we spend our money without sacrificing small upgrades to our home. I love gathering inspiration from catalogs (such as Ballard Designs, Restoration Hardware, Wisteria and Pottery Barn) and finding ways to get a similar look on a budget. Come see the full home tour in the link below to see the before pictures. We've made a lot of changes since we've moved into our modest but charming home!
