Welcome to 1915 House!
My name is Sarah and I live on your grandmother’s budget. No, I’m not talking about one of those “thousands of dollars to spend on a room” budget. I’m talking: completely flipping a room on it’s head (in the best possible way) for under $100. Yeah – THAT kind of budget.
You, too? Then you’ve found your corner of the internet, sweet friend!
I *know* how hard it is to stretch those hard-earned dollars and still want a pretty home. What other people spend All The Many Dollars on, we – you and I – are going to find a way to get the same look – but for pennies on the dollar.
Let me introduce my partner in
crime DIYs. This is Mr. 1915 and he is the reason so many of our projects around here get done. I shoot him an idea and he figures out all the logistics.
This is the man who, when we were house shopping, gave up his own desire of a huge garage so that I could have *my* heart’s desire of a huge old house. Our house (yes – 1915 House) needed a lot of work and even though this man isn’t an “old house person”, he knows that I am – and so here we are.
Once we moved in, I knew I’d have to think waaaaay outside the box in order to stay under budget. It got my wheels turning and everywhere I looked, all the “budget” projects were still WAY out of *my* budget. So the idea of this online space was born. If I needed ideas and ways to create a beautiful home on the cheap, SURELY someone else was also in my shoes!
Here at 1915 House, you’ll find how to update furniture, flip rooms for UNDER $100, and get ideas to make your home a place of warmth and welcome (including family recipes that have been passed down for generations).
Our home is a place where my family looks forward to gathering at the end of a long day. A place where laughter rings (and, yes, some fighting, too – because: four boys) 😉 and dreams are shared. I’ll show you, one post at a time, how you can do the same.
Join me on this home beautification/DIY/paint-slinging journey, won’t you? A beautiful home CAN be had…and it can be had on a dime.
