I’m a house tweaker. That is really exactly what I do. I prefer it vs starting from scratch. Handy dandy Google defines tweaking as: Improve (a mechanism or system) by making fine adjustments to it.
I kind of want to make up a song about me. “I’m a house tweakerrrr…yeah yeah…I’m a house tweaker”. Anywho.
I did some tweaking to my own house.
Fireplace felt bare. (Click here to see before.) And I was intrigued by how Starbucks always makes their chalkboard signs look so nice…turns out they use chalkboard markers. So I went to handy dandy Michaels’s and bought some.
Here’s what I made:
Can you find the cat?
Then I washed my dining room tablecloth. It was a tad damp so I laid it out on the foot of my guest bed and did a double-take. That looked pretty good. A 108″ tablecloth from TJMaxx that cost $16 was the perfect size to lay on a queen size bed as a coverlet. I mean, who uses a coverlet? It’s just for show. It’s just for color. It’s just for interest. It’s just for texture. It’s just to make your bed look like a Pottery Barn photo shoot. So for $16 vs spending a lot more on an actual queen sized blanket I have a pretty nice looking bed, if I do say so myself. Tweaked.
Have you tweaked anything lately?
