Hi! So much has happened in the last few months since moving into our new home and I have been experimenting with furniture restoration and upcycling that I had been thinking about ways to help me share updates with family and friends, as well as keep my ideas and thoughts organized. A friend of mine (designmotifblog Check it out!) has been blogging about her own home and design journey, and I thought perhaps I’d try the same.
I wrote a guest post a while back on her site about a side table which I upcycled, and I guess I caught the blogging bug 🙂
So here it is. My first post!
Early this spring we had massive flooding in our basement, revealing that we had a huge crack in our foundation and poor grading in the ground towards the house. When the weather was finally warm and dry enough we had a company come and dig it up, repair the foundation and install a new membrane and weeping tile. A couple of rainstorms later and we are still dry!
The foundation repair led to the subject of today’s entry–the resulting patch of clay (hereafter called “Dirt Hole”) in my front garden.
