I am fairly sure that by now you have realised that I am infatuated with Swedish blogs….and I have discovered another great one…this is a wonderful blog written by a talented woman who does all her own DIY projects around the house…not just crafty stuff, but the really tough things like re-tiling, grouting, flooring,making and fitting her own shelves etc…..I am in awe of her skill…she truly is a girl after my own heart! I take pride in the fact that I am able to install my own curtain rods and shelves…I haven’t had to do any tiling yet but when I do, I am certain I will somehow manage it!
I can obviously paint walls and ceilings, but to date I have not laid down a hardwood floor…it cannot be that difficult, surely? (I can see imagine flooring specialists and carpenters shaking their heads!) As a renter, I have not been in position to do any DIY, nor have I honestly had any desire to do so, but Benita is a huge inspiration and makes me want to rush off to Ace Hardware and buy tools of all descriptions!
Although Benita’s lovely home is a little too spare and minimal for my taste, I love how clean and fresh it is and how much she reuses and recycles things….see this post.She uses a lot of stuff she finds at her office to create interesting objects for her home!
