I'm a former Interior Designer and a current Pilates Instructor with a custom home studio. I have an incredibly huge creative talent that I can't contain, and I just bought a house built in 1981 in dire need of work. Watch me make things pretty. Yay DIY!
Painting 33-year-old virgin walls something more mature than builder peachy-white. It looks way less dirty now. FYI, the color they paint the walls when they build a house is just so you don’t have to look at unfinished walls. You aren’t really supposed to keep it because it’s a low-quality paint finish most of the time. And beige is not a color.
“Everyone is always trying to be the best, the most important, the richest, the smartest. My goal is to just be amazing at being average.”
It’s a lot less stressful.
The giant remodel of our living room fireplace wall. It’s much further along than this, but I don’t want to show it to you just yet. I’m saving it for the final reveal, you know, like I’m some sort of TV show.
FYI, I paid people to demo and remodel the wall. The ceiling de-popcornification and subsequent retexture had been all me.
