This past spring, my parents sold my childhood home, which meant I was left without a workshop as my workshop was in a shed in their backyard… and since I live in studio apartment, I was stranded without a place to run my business or build projects! So, this summer my dad and I partnered up with my incredible friends at The Home Depot to build a 12×12 shed from a DIY Shed Kit and turn that shed into my new workshop. Welcome to the first blog post in my Shed-Shop Series – How to Build a Shed!
If you have been following me on social media, you’ll know that my family bought a new house! We all moved out and they decided to buy a home that’s double the size of our first family home. I’ll admit it, I’m jealous. What I would have done to get that extra bathroom as a kid… Despite being a bit jelly beans of my parents’ new living situation, I decided to stop being bitter and give them a cute housewarming gift! I partnered with my awesome friends at HANDy Paint Products to create a custom herringbone address sign for their front porch!
Raise your hand if you have spent a lot of time making your home feel like your own space. I can imagine many hands in the sky after that prompt! As a renter, I have spent hours of my personal time handpicking home decoration items that have helped to make my small studio apartment feel like a comfortable and inspiring space. Including (but not limited to) the largest piece of décor in our apartment, the area rug. So when stains like this happen on our expensive rug, I want to run screaming.
