"two young people falling in love with their first house"

I stumbled across Young House Love the other day and managed to lose myself for over an hour. I couldn't help drooling over John and Sherry's incredible home makeover (and then their wedding...and then their design advice...and then their how-to's).

Not too shabby, right? I'm so inspired, I actually can't wait until it's my turn to own a home and work my butt off to make it beautiful. For some killer tips, and to see more photos of John and Sherry's home, click here. Happy Thursday!
