10 ways to make your house a home.

10 ways to make your house a home.

You don’t realize just how much you appreciate ‘home’ until you’re not there for a few days.

While at home on normal days, we tend to get stressed out with the fact that our houses aren’t perfect.  We always have things we’d like to change or update.  There’s always cleaning to be done. Laundry.  Oh laundry.

But why?  Why can’t we just enjoy home as it is?

Every year we say we’re going to plant a garden - and then we don’t. Sound familiar to anyone?

It sounds wonderful and all, but honestly, there’s a lot about planting that I don’t know.  I am on level 1 of planting if there is such thing.  Buy a plant, get some dirt, find an empty pot and go to town.  Maybe add some water and plant food as well.

I love to make a room or a space in a house special.  I mean, there’s just something wonderful about a room that is full of pieces with a story.  

If you come into our home, we could spend all day chatting about the pieces of furniture we built (or the projects we DIYed), why we decided to build them, and some funny stories to go along with them.  Or about the gorgeous antique pieces I found while ‘junking’.

I love a good challenge.  Especially when I know I can get it done fairly quickly.

My sweet aunt needed a magazine holder for her bathroom.  Because ya’ll have to have something to read while you’re in there.

She sent me a few pictures of things she had picked up at the store.
