Ever since I can remember I’ve been painting and repainting the rooms of whatever house I lived in. For a long time, that was my mom’s house, and
Next came my then-boyfriend’s house. He bought a fixer-upper that we painted, sanded down the hardwood floors and refinished, purchased new furniture, and spruced up with artwork, window treatments, and all that homey stuff! That boyfriend soon became my husband, and not so long after out wedding we found our forever home.
Our current home was move-in ready, if only we were 70-something years old…. So I got to work again, and began by painting every room in our home. My husband will admit he did not so much as touch a paint brush, until I became pregnant. I still painted with no-VOC paint, mainly because I couldn’t stay away, but climbing an extension ladder at 7 months pregnant in our two-story stairway, just wasn’t smart! So he did that area… but I’ll probably repaint it again soon!
We’ve done a lot of work ourselves, but have also known when to call in the pros. Our kitchen and basement remodels were bigger than we could handle with a 1 year old, and then a 20 month old, and again pregnant momma walking around! When I would tell my friends and family about our current projects, I would say “I’m just nesting!” because they just so happened to correspond with a pregnancy. They would just laugh and say “You’re always nesting!”
Welcome to my blog! I hope you enjoy this journey of making a house our home, through design, organization, ventures in the kitchen, and crafts with the kiddos!
