Here’s a glimpse inside our Rental Home Tour. We lived there for 5 years (2013-2018) before we bought our forever home. It was a rental house that I slowly turned into our “for now” home. We loved living there, and I still enjoy looking back at pictures of all the projects that I tackled during those years.


I often get questions about sources for various decor pieces in our home. Since I’m a complete DIY addict, I’ve linked to the DIY tutorials as well. So, as so many people on a budget and with a creative side know, you can choose to “DIY” or to “BUY.”
