We’ve lived in our new home for almost 7 months and we’ve taken great pride in making it unique. After spending the evening making yet another table and an art piece for the bonus room, I realized how many DIY projects we’ve done around the house. We’ve made dumper diving a regular event and we both love coming home with a new find, especially when we pull it out of a garbage bin in the neighborhood. I search craigslist for possible projects and I spend a lot of time at second-hand stores and yard sales. All of the searching and creating has resulted in a semi-furnished space that is completely us and a labor of love. Each project is special because we either made it from scratch or refinished it. It may take longer, but the end result is uniquely “Carter” material.
Our Garage –
It all started with a workbench in the garage. Darren’s father helped build a workbench that is large enough for most projects and it got our creative juices flowing. It’s made completely from reclaimed wood.
