Hi! My name is Brenda and I LOVE do-it-yourself projects! My husband and I just bought our first house and like many of you, we don’t have money to blow on every little thing on our wish list… new bathroom, designer curtains, fancy moldings, expensive furniture… you know, the things you walk around certain unnamed stores drooling over. So because of that, we started figuring out how to make things on our own and save a ton of money in exchange. Plus, the benefit of knowing you created ‘that’ with your own hands is PRICELESS! The process has been so easy and rewarding that I wanted to ‘pay it forward’ to other people like us! So if you can run fabric through a sewing machine, swing a hammer, and drive a power saw (or a least have someone stop by to do it for you), then this is the place for you! I’m not a seamstress (some of my instructions might appawl you if you are), I’m not a carpenter (but my husband pretends 🙂 ), I’ve never taken lessons on how to do any of the things I’m going to blog about but it’s worked for me! I hope you enjoy! Please feel free to leave comments, questions, or revisions that might help others in my instructions. Thanks!
