. Nice to meet you
George said that I could say a few words
I suppose the purpose of my pages is to tell you what I learned about home decorating while in our build your own home project.
You see from a womans point of view, home decorating is what makes a home. Now, I know that my husbands focus was to build us a really strong house, and that was REALLY important, BUT
home decorating is the icing on the cake
and the thing that really makes a house a home
a haven that is warm and inviting
So, after much toil, and money stretching
I found ways to make our house look outstanding on a budget
and believe me
. THERE IS A BIG BAD BUDGET when your build your own home. You just cant throw caution to the wind and spend
at least we couldnt. But this was my dream home
and I wanted it perfect! I had to look for ways to save money and still get the look I wanted, and everybody that comes to our house says that I succeeded! I guess I am pretty proud of the fact that we went ahead and decided to build our own home AND handle our own home decorating. And, I guess you know by now that George and I like to save money and do things ourselves! You can too!
George is a great guy
. but when we met, he was eating off of paper plates and couldnt care a flip about having real dishes in the cabinet, or curtains on the windows. He had ONE coffee mug and the way he figured it
that was plenty good enough! If there was something to eat
he was happy. Days old, cold pizza
dried out beans
still in the pot
. uncovered in the fridge
well, you get the picture! He had never really nested before
but he sure has taken a shine to it! And this house is the finest nest that we have ever had, and we built it ourselves! How cool is that?
like most women
. it was up to me to feather our nest with home decorating.
To make this easy, I have broken down what I came to know into simple categories. Look below for the links to all of my home decorating pages.
