Apartment Guide's DIY Renter Repairs & Tips Bloggers Challenge~

I am excited to have been asked to participate in Apartment Guide's DIY Renter Repairs & Tips Bloggers Challenge.

If you didn't already know, the Hubby and I are actually renting the home that we live in.  I have always been of the opinion that it doesn't matter whether you rent or own, making your home "your own" is important.  When we lived in Massachusetts, we owned our home, and yes, that does come with DIY opportunities that renting doesn't.  That said, however, there are many easy (and reversible) ways that you can personalize a rental.

So when Apartment Guide contacted me and asked if I'd like to participate in their DIY Renter Repairs & Tips Bloggers Challenge, my answer was a resounding "YES!"  I'd love nothing more than to empower my readers who rent with the desire to make their spaces their own.  (And the same holds true for homeowners - the tips work equally well either way.)

Remember this space that I shared a couple of weeks back?  This is my undecorated (and messy - my apologies) dining room.  I'm going to share a very simple update with you that will change this space dramatically. 

Look for that, and some other easy-to-achieve ideas that will help you update your home without a lot of time, stress or money - as well as a fun giveaway to help you along the way- all coming up in my DIY Renter Repairs & Tips Bloggers Challenge post next week!

Just like me, Apartment Guide wants to empower people to make their spaces their own.  Apartment Guide has tips on how to update and make repairs at home whether you are in a large or small space. It’s helpful information no matter where you live.    Ready to use your toolkit but not sure where to start? Apartment Guide also has helpful DIY repair and home maintenance tips for any room in your place: http://www.movingtoday.com/top-organizing-tips-for-any-room/

You can also find them on Facebook at   Facebook.com/ApartmentGuide or on Twitter at Twitter.com/AptGuide

I'm off to tackle those projects!!

I can't wait to see what you come up with. Renting or with a mortgage (isn't that most of us?) a home is a home and it is what you make of it. Filled with love and a few pretty things and we're all happy.

I'm so glad that you pointed out that "...it doesn't matter whether you rent or own, making your home "your own" is important." Sooo true!

Love your dining space. I've been wanting to decorate with white. :)

Hi Wendy, We rent our home too! I always say just because it isn't our house doesn't mean it's not our home. To me it doesn't matter who's name is on the title. My family and I are the ones living here, not the owner. Anyway, can't wait to see what you come up with!! Have a great weekend. : ) ~ Catie

Oooohh, it sounds wonderful! We have just bought a house after renting for a few years and we are in the process of making it our dream home. I love your blog - it's one of the first I bookmarked and I will definitely drop in to visit again to see all the lovely advice. God Bless.
