So a while back, I mentioned on MLST's Facebook page that Mitch and I talked with an editor. Well, it's time to spill the deets about that talk. We were chatting with Megan Baker, assistant editor at This Old House magazine. And this month (actually the Jan/Feb edition) Ryder's room is being featured in the magazine.
Megan called and we talked about how we put Ry's room together on a tight budget. And when I say "tight" I mean TIGHT. Actually, most of the pieces we used to furnish his room were either free or literally a few bucks. Here, go check it out. The tally TOH has in the mag is $248. That's for the entire room. So Ry's room is the Budget Redo article this month. It's a one page before/after spread with a breakdown of costs. And of course the show-stopper of the room is the pallet ceiling.
Man, this whole blog thing has been quite the experience. I had no idea when I started out three years ago that one day this little blog here would be featured on so many other blogs, websites, a book, and now a magazine. We even got to meet an awesome Christian music artist (Brandon Heath) who ironically enough, we may be possibly hanging out with today. So awesome. It's been such a great experience for both Mitch and I and we look forward to wherever it may lead in the future. EEK! WE'RE IN A MAGAZINE!!!! (seriously, this is a HUGE dream come true)
So do me a favor and pick up the January/February edition of This Old House. We'll be getting our copy in the mail either today or in the very near future. It comes out on newsstands middle of December.
And THANK YOU so much for reading our blog. Obviously without you guys we wouldn't be here. So thank you from the bottom of our DIY hearts. YOU GUYS ROCK.
