“Decorating golden rule: Live with what you love.” ~ Unknown
A few months ago I embarked on a new adventure. I have always loved to update my home but when my children were younger (2 boys) now adults with children of their own, I couldn’t justify nor afford an interior decorator. I always enjoyed DIY projects and repurposing old things and giving them new life, painting a room to give it a different and more updated look. I even bought real raw wood flooring from a lumber company that was going out of business. (What was I thinking?) I enlisted the help one of my friends and she and I embarked on my quest for a wood floor in my living room. Did I mention that the wood was a blank slate? After we laid the floor, we sanded, stained and sealed the floor. The work had a few flaws, but even if I do say so myself, it wasn’t too darned bad. Talk about the ultimate in a DIY project. But you know, I would have put it up against some who call themselves professionals.
