If you want me to do something, tell me it’s impossible…
Or convince me that it’s difficult, dangerous or unrealistic.
Then get out of my way while I prove you wrong!
PinkToolBelted.com will document my success at accomplishing the impossible — restoring my once beautiful home to its glory days. I hope, in the process, that I can encourage you to attack your own heretofore seemingly “impossible” tasks. I’ll pass along time-saving tips, money-saving ideas and hopefully even provide creative inspiration.
So, What Qualifies Me as a Home Maintenance Expert?
Absolutely, totally NOTHING! And that is the beauty of it.
I am a single, mature woman living in a 75+ year old house on which maintenance has been deferred for over 20 years. (There are reasons — Raising an intelligent, articulate, talented, and responsible daughter single-handedly is but one.)
There are 182 items on my “What’s Broken” list, and I don’t have a clue how to fix most of them. Some will take an hour. Others will take weeks and months. Many are simple. And boring. Others (the ones you’ll see here) are a lot more ambitious or down-right fun. None freak me out, however. (See why.)
Point being — I am a woman on a mission. And I intend to be living proof that with the right attitude, tenacity, the Internet, and the numerous resources you’ll learn about in this blog, I can both learn to restore my home and hopefully help others in the process.
So come along for the ride. It will be long and bumpy, difficult, dangerous and maybe even unrealistic. But it will also be incredibly rewarding and (hopefully) entertaining.
It most certainly will not be impossible!
