June review

Summer is finally in full swing here in Chicago (meaning it is hot!) as we move into July.  June, though, was mostly cool and was full some fun and exciting posts here at 2BB.  Here’s the June review in case you missed anything!

I started out the month with an update on the saga of turning our dreary 1970s-era basement spare room into a “media den” for DH, including some pics of the Elfa hack we undertook last fall (and a quick run-down of the million things still left to do down there!):

Next I did a lengthy post re-capping the progress we’ve made in fixer-upper to commemorate our one-year anniversary of living at our new place:

I ended the month’s post with a quick post about the easy bathroom art update (thanks to the clearance aisle at Target) I was inspired to make after posting earlier in the month about other bathroom updates:
