I’m Phyllis and several years ago I bought a 1970s home in serious need of updating. I’m planning to stay here for quite a long time and the idea of living in a different decade isn’t appealing, so I’m gradually modernizing my home one room at a time. Most of the work I’m taking on myself (pray for me) and some of the tasks I’m outsourcing because, well, I’m no licensed contractor. This little blog follows the journey of my little renovation projects to share my dos, don’ts and wish-I-would-haves in the hopes of saving someone else the headaches I’m enduring through this process.

Happy home making!
