Title: Ep 10: Buildin’ on a Budget Pt. 2
Show Notes: In this part two episode focused on budgeting in renovation, Julia and Chris discuss what a budget means to them, and how it has changed over time. They talk about their early days of DIY, and share one of their first projects and how it went horribly awry.

Chris and Julia also answer the question, “Is it really a “budget” project if it’s sponsored?” and share their perspective on how they approach sponsored content, while trying to make it relatable.

    Hi there,

    I really enjoyed your podcast this week. The light you talk about is from a Dutch brand. Moooi is actually pronounced like Roy:Moy. It means beautiful in Dutch. Can’t wait for next week!
