THIS NEXT APARTMENT HAS SO MANY
PICS THAT I MUST BREAK IT UP INTO SEVERAL
I have been working on "MAKEOVERS" for all of the
apartments that are in 'LOUISIANA'. So bear with
This apartment that I am going to show you has taken
me so long to redo.
And there have been so many changes to this apartment
in the past 2 years.
MEET AMANDA GRACE!
Amanda works all day, 5 days a week at a
