DIY painted piano! Used Valspar chalk paint in Opera Gown. No sanding! Just wiped it down! Took and hour and half! Instead of using tape to paint around the keys… I cut a piece of cardboard from a cereal box, pushed the keys down, inserted the card board in between keys and wood and it gave me a clean line while protecting the keys from paint! Then slid the cardboard down the piano and repeated steps until done! Easiest thing I have ever painted! I thought it would take super long and be hard!

As I was walking through our first-time home with our home inspector, he asked me if I’d ever owned a home before. I told him that this would be our first. He laughed uneasily and said, “Well this will be quite the first!” We were 26 years old and full of naive energy. Our first home was a 100-year-old Victorian that had been badly renovated by some over-ambitious DIYers before us. It had wall-to-wall soiled mauve carpet on all three levels, but in my mind’s eye I could envision the heart-pine floors buried underneath! I was smitten with the millwork, chunky moldings, and gorgeous staircase, and looked past the sagging ceiling and aging roof. I knew I could make this house a home! Admittedly, our home inspector’s comment rattled my confidence a tad, but I figured we would somehow figure it all out as we went along. Here are 5 essential tips for new homeowners that I really wish I had known back then:

Coffee table decorating I absolutely love the look of pink home decor as it is trendy and cute. If you want a girly home decor theme then ths is a great choice. Pink is a fun versatile color as it ranges from light pale pink to a deep dark pink. Honestly my favorite pink home decor includes champagne pink, Lavender pink, orchid pink and cherry blossom pink. Use pink decorative throw pillows for couches and beds.
