ABOUT

DebbieHey everyone I’m Debbie.  I live with my husband, my one-two legged son and two-four legged fur babies.  I’m a stay at home Mom and love that I can be home for my son.  My parents were divorced when I was very young and I don’t remember a time when my mother didn’t work.    We moved from a house to an apartment when I was about 9, because my Mom just didn’t know how to fix anything nor could she afford to pay someone else to do it.  And of course there was no YouTube back then.  So I began trying to fix stuff on my own, nothing major just cosmetic changes. I started with simple projects first like painting and putting down peel and stick vinyl tile. It wasn’t long before I moved onto hanging wallpaper.  And yes, I hung it everywhere and yes, I regretted it when it was time to take it down!!!

Although I started DIY projects when I was young, I was always very intimidated by power tools and never really used them until recently when giving my kitchen a facelift (my biggest project to date).  I’m totally addicted to them now and want one of each.

I love being able to fix and create things on my own no matter how big or small, and the feeling of empowerment I get from doing it.  Follow me on my journey, as I discover new DIY projects and hopefully I’ll inspire you to do the same.
