Favorite True Value Product

I am a believer in the “Power of Paint,” so anything having to do with the process is what I use the most.
 

Best Quick Tip

Even if you think your project might fail, there is always a way! A trip to the local hardware store is where you will find the answer. The aisles are filled with potential fixes and the people behind the counter are pretty ingenious. They will show you something you may never have thought of using. Don’t give up; all it takes is a trip to the hardware store to find a way to fix it.
 

About

I love all things creative, colorful and DIY. Before starting my blog, I graduated from The Fashion Institute of Technology and started my career in retail display design, which turned into interior design after I bought my first home. I authored a book based on my experience decorating my first home on a budget, which led me to blogging. Today, I have transitioned from writing books to blogging online, and all of my posts are budget-friendly. With a bit of ingenuity and resourcefulness, I think anyone can create a home they love.
