Thanks for visting Simply The Nest. I'm an English girl married to an Portuguese boy, and when I'm not taking care of our two adorable daughters, I blog about our house renovation, DIY projects, delicious recipes, inspirational interiors, and family life in a Victorian Manchester nest.

Quite the after shot on the kitchen - Love it! Seriously love the bathroom though - especially what you did with the sink! Gorgeous work!

Thanks! Our 'during' photos look very similar to your current basement demo pics. We lived in chaos for months. Totally worth it all though!

I'm married to a Portuguese boy too!

Love your blog; just discovered it today. Stop by the Beach Bungalow sometime for a visit.
