About Us


This is my husband, Matt, and me, Mel. We just bought our first home on March 1st, 2013 and we’re making a lot of changes to it. We hope to keep posted on here the changes that we’re making and any DIY tips that we think might be useful for other new homeowners.


This is our new house! We can’t wait to get it set up in our own style. Currently, it has five different jewel colored carpet styles throughout the house. Everything is painted white, including the stone and brick fireplace unfortunately, except, of course, for the horrendously wallpapered guest bathroom. We’ve got a lot of work to do and are jumping right in.


Tell me your opinions and ideas!
