I've always liked the quote "A dream is a wish your heart makes when you're fast asleep." Well I have always dreamed about owning my own house, ever since I was a little girl. That dream came true for me on April 3rd. I bought my very own house, all by myself. 

Here are a few pictures I took. I can't wait to put my own personal stamp on the whole house. I'm all moved in but I am busy unpacking and organizing. I will be posting progress pics soon, as well as before pictures of all the rooms! A house, especially a DIYers house, is always a work in progress

The kitchen does not need much work, just look at those beautiful granite counters! The cabinets need some work though. The finish is rubbing off in some places. I like wood, but I would like a lighter, brighter feel to it. It is a small kitchen, so I will use color in small doses but I want to paint the cabinets, and do something on the fake soffit at the top of the cabinets. I dislike stainless steel appliances, but these are pretty new and in great condition so they will have to stay. I am pretty good at repurposing and being thrifty, so I will come up with some great tips and tricks that you might be able to use in your own home

My basement is FULL of really nice wood paneling, but its not my style. What do you think I will do? You will have to wait and see, but I would love to hear your guesses


  1. Yes, it's a good feeling, huh? Especially the fact that you're able to do it all by yourself. The place is really cute, and your ideas are going to look so nice. Congrats!!
