• Replacing a Broken Light Switch

    This week, I’ve been stepping out of my comfort zone and trying new things! Monday, I bought a pack of new light switches since one is broken and all the others needs replacing because I don’t like the color. Never in a million years would I have thought I could do this, but changing my mindset changed my limits! Never limit yourself. I watched multiple YouTube videos to make sure I knew what I was doing and even called my dad to come check everything when I was done. Just last week I was installing an air return grille and now I am on the other end of the spectrum!…

  • How to Install a New Air Return Grille

    I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and a great start to the New Year! I’ve been gone way too long! This year, I finally got around to installing a new air return grille that I bought three months ago! Why so long you may have asked? Well I constantly have a thought in my head that I may fail. Today I got tired of always wondering ‘what if’ I fail and told myself that you are not failing at anything, it is just a lesson learned on what not to do. I was watching a YouTube video today and saw it the title say 2019 Vision. Then I thought…

  • Design for Caiden’s Room

    Since I’ve laid eyes on this home, I’ve been thinking about a design for Caiden’s room! Trying to staying in one room from start to finish, is a task for me that I decided it was time to try to do! I may go paint a room here or there, but my goal is to design his room before I design any other. Thinking of ideas in my head or making a board online does not allow me to see the vision. I finally brought back my mood board which is my life saver! I kept contemplating on whether or not I was going to do multiple designs, but I…

  • Painting Tricks

      We all want to know the easiest ways to do everything. Why? Just because it saves a lot of time and a lot of energy that’s needed elsewhere. Even though we may not know all of the short cuts, just having a few makes a huge difference! Therefore, I hope these tricks help you as much as they have helped me.   ¬†Cover paint tray with aluminum foil. This will make clean up a lot easier since all you have to do is remove the aluminum foil. Use an angle brush to get close to the baseboards and ceiling. Make sure you go slow and steady. (Even if you…

  • The Headache

      I’ve been wanting to redesign my bedroom for at least two years now, but I never had the courage to do so. This summer, I finally started on my journey which wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be. From choosing paint color, to trying to find a bed spread (haven’t been lucky to find one I like yet), and better yet, finding those picture frames and pictures to make the room feel “homier”; Can’t you tell¬† it’s making my head spin?? I guess my fear for error is reappearing. In the end, I am taking baby steps which makes everything not become so overwhelming. I had to…
