As I work through projects, I want to be able to share all my tips, tricks, and tutorials with you to be able to achieve the exact same looks in your homes, or inspire you to do something that will work in your homes. My goal is to show you that you can do this! I’ve only just started using power tools, only just now felt brave enough to tackle projects without the help of my husband. I was tired of waiting for him to get home from work to accomplish something, so I decided it’s time for me to do it myself. To achieve the look that I want in my home with my own two hands. And I want that to carry over to you: Achievable home designs and decor that you can do yourself and save yourself money in the process!
But I do realize that not everyone is at the same place or the same mindset that I am in. Sometimes we don’t have to the time to do it by ourselves and we need to buy it on our way home instead of DIY’ing it. So each time I work through a project, I won’t just be sharing all the steps to do it yourself, I’ll also be sharing with you the top ones on the market that you can easily purchase to achieve the exact same look.
Today is the very first edition of ‘Buy it Over Build It!‘ If you don’t have the confidence or the time to create your very own pinch pleat curtains for your room, I’m going to share my very favorites on the market at a great price point so you can achieve the exact same look, without the extra steps that come from DIY!
