Liz's Repainted, Refinished or Replaced
What I Love About My Home
I love the DIY aspects of my home. When I moved in the house was in disrepair and nearly all surfaces had to be repainted or refinished or replaced by my husband and I. I painted and reupholstered furniture, built a headboard for my bed, came up with new lighting schemes, and had lots of fun shopping at antique markets! It's still a work in progress, so I love that I continually make changes and edit the house's style. I also love the wood beam ceilings-- they are one of the only interesting original architectural details of my 1950's tract home.
Biggest Challenge in Furnishing My Home
The biggest challenge has been adjusting to the scale of the house. Although it is on the upper end of the size of Small/Cool, there are three bedrooms, a full living area, dining area, and kitchen. The space ends up being compartmentalized and separated. We moved in with overstuffed huge sofas but have learned to choose furniture and art that will open up and fit with the scale of the small rooms.
