As a new nester (a.k.a. homeowner/maker) I know very little about carpentry, sewing, painting or being “crafty”. However, I do know what looks good, I know what makes me feel warm, and I know that all of those things help make a house a home. My husband and I moved into a brand new house two years ago and I’ve barely picked up a paint brush. Since we’re in BFE (no honestly, our town is named “BumpAss”) we put ourselves on a 2 year plan here, but with how fab the market is doing these days, it’s turning into a 5-15 year plan. I’ll explain later why we’re here and why we want to leave, other than the obvious reason… the hillbillybutt name.
So what’s a gal to do stuck in a blank canvas indefinitely? Well, I’m out to make it sweeter one DIY project at a time. Since my style is more laid-back chic vs. stuck up expensive, I think I can easily do it….once I learn the basics! Since I married the most handyman hot-ass I know and my mom and sister are crafty-craftersons, I’ll have some great teachers to help me along the way. I also fully anticipate being that girl that bugs the crap out of the sales clerks at Home Depot and True Value, “How do I make this color?”, “What’s a synthetic brush?”, “How long should it be?” (that’s what she said!)
As much as I want to throw my entire self into
redesigning designing my home, I also have a full time job so I’m officially declaring myself a Weekend DIY Warrior! I hope along this journey of learning, creating and designing that I’m also able to teach you something and hopefully make you laugh along the way.
