How I discovered my “Love It” Moment with DIY + Decorating

By June 27, 2015Decorating, DIY, Sponsored

Even as a renter, customizing my home is something I love to do. That is where DIY + Decorating + Creativity come into play!

Even though there are perimeters to abide by, I have had the best time in 2015 with making over my bedroom in January for about $150.00 and my Kitchen in April for about $200.

I thought I would feature my DIY decorating from my Kitchen makeover. It was pretty fun.

I was reflecting fondly on both makeovers recently when I remembered how much work went into them. DIY is never as pretty as the end result photographs appear. You really have to want to roll up your sleeves and get dirty. DIY started as a hobby to me and now it is so much more! I feel completely fulfilled when I get to work on a new project.

For example, in April, I ordered a Moen Reflex kitchen faucet from Build.com to replace my old fixed sink faucet that drove me crazy. Doesn’t the new faucet look so much better? I can tell you it makes doing the dishes not so bad.

That was just the first step in this makeover.

There was a lot of trial and fail but, I finally achieved the look I wanted. There is an abundance of heart and soul that goes into each project and it is all for the end result!

To me…the after photo reminds me of all the work I accomplished to get to that after photo! It is the best feeling in the world.

DIY + Decorating has been an amazing journey and has transformed into my passion. I realized recently in that DIY + Decorating is my “Love it” moment!

Making my surroundings more aesthetically pleasing is a must in my home.

After one project ends, another must begin and I would really love to re-decorate my rental living room.
