I hate my city
- Published on Tuesday, 07 May 2013
Authors: Sara @ Russet Street RenoUh, this might seem like a weird post for the one immediately following our 'look how much we love our house' feature in the paper...awkward. I have straight up had it with our city. In the 5 years we've lived here, we have watched our services go down (recycling pickup every two weeks instead of every...

Authors: Sara @ Russet Street RenoA few weeks ago, I was contacted by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel to have a reporter come out to the house and do an interview for the paper. They were interested in our home renovation story, and also the Renovation Roadtrip we participated in last October. The timing was a little stressful since we...

The 'not bathroom'
- Published on Sunday, 07 April 2013
Authors: Sara @ Russet Street RenoWhen we bought this house, we were told by our new neighbor that the little room attached to our master bedroom was a full bathroom at some point.

We've been sleeping in our living room on a mattress and were delighted to move our stuff back into the room...

8 month update

Authors: Sara @ Russet Street RenoHere I am. I kept starting this post and then deleting it because it would end up depressing or apologetic or somehow 'woe is me,' so I have put it off. I will just say that I've basically been a single parent for the month of February and it does not agree with me. Actually, I don't know that...

Authors: Sara @ Russet Street RenoHello. My name is Sara, and I used to run this home renovation blog when I wasn’t at my day job. Now, my 'spare' time is spent following around a baby and wondering what kind of Twilight Zone I’m in where weekends are over in .2 seconds and my house is a constant disaster. Since Ashford started crawling and c...

Authors: Sara @ Russet Street RenoHey everyone, I hope you had a wonderful new year! We went out with my brother and his lady for NYE while my mom watched the little nugget, and it was divine. There was champagne, party head gear, and sequins involved. Here is a photo to prove that I did not fall asleep on the couch at 10pm as...

Authors: Sara @ Russet Street RenoYesterday Shaun decided he wanted to make cookies. From scratch, with the oldest baking essentials in the world, because I don't bake and there is no need to have fresh flour or brown sugar in our house. I think our Baking Soda was from two years ago. Along with the old products, there were old...
