DIY Inspiration

Finding the motivation to tackle remodeling has always been difficult for me. I’ve always had a million excuses for not doing it.

It cost too much…

I don’t know the rules…

What if it looks bad when I am finished???

Ty Pennington isn’t available to help…

You, my new friends in blogging, have changed all that. Chalk it up to peer influence, but I am ready, willing, and able to finally tackle some long-overdue projects. I am continually inspired by the creativity, thriftiness, and enthusiasm you bring to your blogs.

Special thanks to:

Becky for showing me a beautiful room doesn’t have to break the bank.

Kim for inspiring me in so many ways, but especially for throwing out the rules so I can make my home a place that makes me happy without worrying I am making a home décor faux pas.

Rhoda, Debbie, and Linda for hosting weekly parties that allow me to make new friends with whom I can visit and gain new ideas.

You are all wonderful!

Now, about Ty Pennington…


  1. Hi La! I know exactly what you mean! When I started my blog a year ago, it was just what I needed to give me the push to start making the changes around my home that I had been longing to do...I kept making excuses about having young kids to take care of, too tired etc. that I never got anything done! Blogging has been such a great motivator for me. I wish you all the best in your DIY pursuits!!!

  2. Remodeling is a daunting task but, once you get past the fear of it, just go and do what ever makes you smile!
