Hi everyone – we are Kristen and Cheryl and we will be moving into our first home in Sept 2015. We’ve been renters since we graduated from school so this is our first foray into home ownership – all its joys and tribulations!
We’ve been reading a ton of blogs and we love how folks document their “house-to-home” journey and we’ve learned so much that we feel we’ll be able to make some of these changes ourselves! Just so we’re all clear on the starting point we’re at, we are terrible DIY-ers. In fact, the only real DIY we’ve done is to hang paintings and take them down. No seriously, we tried to make a frame once and we couldn’t get the screws all the way through the wood without stripping them. Needless to say, we gave up.
With an actual house that we can make actual changes to (there is a severe limit to how much you can do as a renter), we’re excited to get this part of our life started! I – its Cheryl speaking here – am far more DIY ambitious than Kristen is but you’ll hear from us both I’m sure. My posts will hopefully be filled with stories of amazing befores and afters while Kristen’s might be filled with all the DIY failures I’ll try my best to hide!
So anyway, we’re glad to be on the blogosphere and documenting what we do and what little we know so come along for the bumpy ride!
