I couldn’t be more proud. This weekend I participated in my first substantial DIY project. My boss wanted to shiplap her wall and after having my parents coach us through how to do it on Saturday, her wall is nearly done. (All she has to do is finish caulking and paint and walla!)

On Friday, we adventured to Home Depot (after celebrating National Margarita Day) and got all the supplies we needed. I learned how to check whether or not a board is bowed. And that you can expect your studs to be about 16 inches apart, depending on what year of house it is. And other things that I never learned growing up. But it was exciting to think that one day when I have a home, I can so do this. (I just need a little coaching from my parents.) Oh, and side note, all this has led me to think of a brilliant business idea!
