Hello! I wanted to start a blog chronicling various DIY projects I have going on. I've recently gotten into building wood furniture, thanks to Ana White & Knock-Off Wood. We've been in this house for 2.5 years and while it's not OLD, it's not brand-spanking new perfection either. We've ripped out the first floor half bath vanity, painted and put in a new vanity/sink/faucet. Decorated our son's room when he upgraded from a toddler bed to real furniture. Made a nice guest room. Replaced the kitchen faucet. Replaced some windows (not us, we paid for that!). Have a TON of stuff I WANT to do, but very little that we MUST do. The house is livable as it is, it's just not super pretty :) It doesn't help that I am a total cheapskate. Good example of this is we've had the money in savings for over a year to buy new kitchen appliances, but I just can't.let.it.go! I mean, there's nothing physically WRONG with the fridge...It's just 19 years old, ugly, and we hate it...But it works! So, I'm loathe to replace them, even though I scowl at them all daily.
I will be back later with posts about the things we've already done, the things I'm planning soon, and the pipe-dream-someday plans!
