Designing Main Street shows a glimpse of the home improvement projects my husband and I have done to our cape house on a budget. We like to think of ourselves as handy people. While my husband isn’t as frugal as I am and doesn’t usually see the charm in reusing home furnishings, he does put up with my projects, lends a helping hand and does praise my work when I’m done. Usually, he’s left to clean up the mess too!
We bought our house in the spring of 2010. It is a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom cape built in 1969. The house has a two car garage and a finished basement. It sits on 1-acre of landscaped land on a corner lot. You can check out what the house originally looked like here.
I started this blog in the fall of 2010. I hope I can inspire you to take on new projects around your home. Feel free to leave a comment or send an email if you have any questions or comments!
