I’m a bit of a gypsy. And my husband is a recent convert. My family and some of my friends think we’re a little nutty, but we don’t care. And they usually love us anyway. They just don’t want to live like we do.
We bought our home a year ago, after fixing up a foreclosure and selling it. We had lived in the fixer upper for 3 years when I got the moving bug. It bites me frequently, that moving bug. We were blessed with a large profit, and moved into a larger, newer home with very few, if any, major issues. But what we gained in new-ness, we lost in character. Here is my new challenge. Putting character into a house that is 15 years old, starting to show it’s age, and doing so on a teacher’s budget of money and time.
My husband and I are both teachers. Living on a teacher’s salary and trying to renovate/decorate can be difficult. A challenge. Goodwill is my friend. So is Ross, Hobby Lobby, and Michaels.
Am I a DIYer, or just a girl who loves HGTV? That‘s what I’m trying to figure out. I would love to have some help and advice as I journey to find the answer. I hope you come along for the ride and share your thoughts along the way!
