I started blogging in March of 2010 but have been DIYing my entire life. When I was a child, my dad would enlist me in various DIY projects around the house including building a deck and a shed, finishing out an addition to the house and rebuilding an entire SUV engine. Now, I love renovating kitchens and baths and adding molding to any flat surface! True Value is right down the street from my childhood home and is our go-to local hardware store. The store is stocked to the brim with most of the tools and supplies you need for any DIY project, yet still maintains that small-town feel with chats over coffee included!
