My husband and I own a house that is over 100 years old. Needless to say, it needs a lot of updating and improvements. Because of this, one of our favorite channels to watch is HGTV. We get a lot of ideas on improving our home but little know-how. Like many homeowners, we don't have thousands lying around to pay someone to do our improvements, so we try to do things on our own with a little bit of help from others.
