I've been a homeowner for nine months. Besides purchasing all new furniture and appliances, I haven't done much decorating in my house. When people come to my house they say, "it looks like a model home". That statement comes from my home looking like nobody lives in it. Which is true to a certain extent. My husband and I purchased our home in June, got married in August and moved out of the country in September. That left no time to truly decorate the way I would have like too. Well, since we are home for the next few months it's finally time to turn this house into a more creative and personal home.
After talking with a lovely friend of mine, I decided to document my decorating process. Through sharing some of our renovations, improvements and decorative additions, I am hoping to create a memory book and possibly give others ideas/tips.
As many of you know I watch HGTV all day long. I've adopted so many ideas that I will utilize around my home. Here goes nothing...
With the weather warming up, it's time to start spring cleaning and change. After thoroughly cleaning the house, it was time to move outdoors. My front yard lacked the proper appearance to match my outgoing personality. I wanted to make a simple change that would change its entire look. John Gidding, on HGTV's show Curb Appeal, always suggest flowers for a simple touch. Therefore, on the first day of spring I was so excited to venture to our neighborhood Lowe's and purchased hydrangeas. Besides roses I would have to say hydrangeas are the next best looking flowers.
I had never planted a flower before. I decided to watch several YouTube videos that were specific to planting hydrangeas. Planting flowers was much easier than I assumed it would be. After planting my new flowers, I decided to add new mulch and stone to provide additional cuteness.
