One of the first things I noticed about my house was the lack of lights in my unfinished basement. For months, I used a plug- in light and flashlight and my system was working well, but enough was enough.
My mom is the most intense cleaner I know. Growing up, the smell of bleach was a familiar scent. My family home was all white. All white curtains, bed sheets, tiles, walls- everything. White. White. White. White. White. When I first got my house, I needed my mom’s super powers! The place was nasty. It wasn’t horror movie nasty, but when we washed the walls, the water in the bucket turned brown.
Making my own headboard was on my to-do list for a few weeks. Follow along with my step-by-step instructions and pictures.
This weekend, I tackled something I’ve been putting off- yardwork. Finishing the inside of my house was always a priority so my backyard is still a mess. It was such a beautiful weekend and I had the energy so I decided to trim the branches, rake, and clean up the back.
Without a doubt, I have made a bunch of mistakes on the house. To-date, my biggest issues have been with painting.
I am writing my mistakes out, so you don’t make them!
