Hi everyone and welcome to my first blog post! I've been thinking about doing this for a while and finally got the courage to start. This blog will primarily focus on home decorating. That is, home decorating on the cheap!

I am a 31 year old wife and mother of a beautiful 7 month old baby boy, with another baby on the way! (Can you say Irish twins?!) My husband and I bought our first house in December 2013. We didn't necessarily buy a 'fixer upper,' but in any case, the house does need quite a bit of work to make it 'our own.' We closed on our house two weeks after our baby was born so needless to say, things have gotten off to a slow start. Now that we have (kind of) gotten the hang of this whole parenting thing (HA!) we feel that we can finally start doing some real work on the house.

Some of the things that I will feature on here are construction projects (that's more on my husband's side of things) as well as decorating ideas for the home, trial and errors (there's a lot of those) and tips and tricks. My goal is to decorate (and redecorate) my home room by room, on the cheap. One of my latest hobbies is furniture re-dos so you'll se quite a bit of those. Thrift store/garage sales are my new thing! I get so much pleasure making something beautiful out of something, well, not so beautiful.

Stay tuned for my next post where I take a $5 garage sale find and make it into a unique piece for my home.
