I have no experience with design and decorating, none-the-less we are a pretty handy family. We did an addition on our house some years ago. We certainly are not new to D.I.Y. projects.
Before pulling up stakes and moving to a new home, think about putting some effort into home improvement in the home you now have. When you renovate your home, you can customize it to be exactly what you want rather than adapting to the designs of another person. It is a much more efficient way to become happy with your home. Wooden skewer/dowel/rod, or a pencil, or a paintbrush (handle), or a crochet hook etc. – just something long and thin to put a straight, narrow hole in the clay. When I was in France a year and a half ago, I fell in love with my friend Terry’s (Antiques from France) stone sink that was in her house in France.
We also scrounged for free materials now and then, including the mulch, some of the tile, hardware and even tools. It’s amazing what some folks just want to get rid of. Both of the older homes in these two renovations feature small, awkwardly located bathrooms, each in desperate need of an update. Though the homeowners actually hired both a plumber to reroute the pipes, and an electrician to make the proper and necessary changes, all the rest of the renovations were definitely do-it-yourself.

Really well done! Kitchens are such an integral part of our homes that a simple redesign can make a huge difference in feel and mood. Thanks for a great post. Another toilet option in disabled bathrooms is a toilet riser. This is a simple seat that fits over the existing toilet seat, making it several inches taller. Toilet risers are inexpensive and easy to install. This lens makes me jealous thet my kitchen is so small and the ceiling is too low. It all looks great well done.
This is perhaps my favorite decorating item. It is always in the details that decorating counts and the switch plate is a simple change out even I can do. Again find a motiff that works for your personal tastes and kitchen design. I called my friend, Kari, an interior designer. Her services were not in the budget. Still I knew she would have ideas. Good designers abound with ideas.
