I recently bought my first house after many years of apartment living, and it took a long time for me to finally realize that it was actually "mine," and I could do whatever I wanted with it! I could never change anything at my apartments, so I just didn't know where to start when I really wanted to customize my house to truly turn it into my new home. I decided that the first thing I wanted to do was something I never got to do at my apartments: paint the walls! I started with the bathroom, and I realized just how different a room can look with a new paint color. I love performing my own handy work around the house, and I am now building my own deck! I decided to create a blog to share my experiences, stories, and tips! I hope you visit it often!
