Helping you plan your home improvement project, from start to finish

As a mom of 3 young girls, I tend to be extra conscious of the items I choose to fill my home, to make it feel lived in and not sterile (especially so the littles don't break precious heirlooms). Having lived in 3 different apartments in the first 3 years of our marriage, my husband and I bought our first home 4 years ago. On a budget, we've been fixing it up over the years to add our own touches here and there, as much as possible. In my free time, I love to find little DIY projects to add my personal touch to old furniture.
