I'm Serena Appiah from Thrift Diving, a blog that inspires you to decorate, improve, and maintain your home on a DIY (do-it-yourself) budget! When we bought our outdated 1973 home in the winter of 2010, we spent every nickel and dime buying the house and had no money left over for decorating or repairs. I taught myself how to make over old thrift store furniture, but there were improvements, repairs, and projects I wanted to tackle that required me to learn to use power tools. Today, I absolutely LOVE power tools! There's no project I won't try at least once! On Thrift Diving, I walk you through, step-by-step (including video tutorials) on how to transform your home with thrift store finds, power tools, and creativity. My readers and I also do quarterly 30-Day Room Makeover Challenges where we transform one room in our houses at a time.
