Hi! I’m Jan and I love everything about budget friendly home decor!
I’m so excited about my new blog, Rickety Pickets, and I’m so happy you’re here! Even if this picture doesn’t look too happy! (I hate taking selfies) I love everything to do with home décor, decorating , repurposing, recycling, DIY projects, painting, building and now I’m sharing.
Life Long Love of Decorating!
I’ve always been interested in decorating, even as a kid I would try to coordinate my room, I remember using wrapping paper to cover my books so they would match the rest of my décor! In my first apartment, everyone thought I was crazy when I used kites to cover the walls. The kites were a huge impact for very little money. So budget decorating is in my bones!
So Many Houses so Little Time!
I’ve just moved into my 17th home as an adult and when you move that much, decorating on a budget is a necessity. And I know I’ll be moving again next year! So whatever I do here, we’ll be bringing with us to the new house. No major remodeling or even minor updating because we’re renting this nice townhouse while we search for a more permanent residence.
My Hubby is the Best!
I love our home to feel comfy, inviting and harmonious, even when it’s a temporary situation. And yes my sweet hubby lets me do my thing without much interference, thank you sweetie! He doesn’t always understand why I would work so hard when we’ll be moving again soon, but he’s a good sport about it. I am so lucky I found him!
So I hope you’ll come back often to see my new projects and the progress I’ve made on our temporary home in Allen, TX. Until then…
