Hello fellow DIY lovers,
I have thought about and put off creating a DIY blog for the longest time. Growing up, a lot of the furniture in my house was made by my dad and my parents did a lot of home repairs themselves. I must have inherited that gene too, because I love creating things by hand for my house. I think I was the only 13-year-old who had an entire design inspiration folder when it came time to remodel my childhood bedroom (and strip it of its fantastic ’70s floral wallpaper).
Since moving to the rainy city of Seattle to attend college at the University of Washington, I have lived in both a house and an apartment. And while I wanted to decorate and make those places feel like home, I was working on a college budget with renter’s restrictions. But I am constantly searching for bargains and coming up with ways to make things mine, without changing too much in my rented home. So hopefully, I can share some tips and tricks that students in the U-District and all DIY-lovers can put to use.
