Hi! Thanks so much for stopping by my page- please browse around and say hello or offer some input.
Our Split Level Ranch
I bought Little Green House (LGH) sort of impulsively, on a short sale, without my husband ever even seeing it and after we decided there was nothing in our price range and we were going to continue to rent for a while. Oopsie.
To say this house was a disaster is an understatement- plaid wallpaper everywhere, animal waste caked onto the floors, filth hand marks up the stairway, cheap turf in the yard. I thought Matt was going to kill me. I didn’t allow our parents to see it for a week so we could spend time de-wallpapering and scrubbing. But I had a vision for this home, and Sandpaper & Glue is all about making that vision happen a million projects at a time.
Check out the House and Project Tour to see how these rooms look now!
My name’s Stephanie and I’m a first time homeowner in New England DIY-ing my way through LGH… while my husband Matt and our 4 roommates (Dutch the Dog & Luigi, Zsa Zsa, and Henry the cats) roll their eyes at my insanity. I hop all over the house painting here and reupholstering there and adjusting this, I am generally working on every room of the house at the exact same time.
When I’m not DIY-ing or blogging I’m working my regular day job(s). I work full time as an academic advisor at a community college, specifically helping students with financial literacy and academic suspension. I also teach a few courses as an adjunct professor in the evenings.
