-About Me-

Hello, I'm Melanie, and welcome to Live From B5!

I work as a part-time high school music teacher during the day, and part-time at our local IKEA store at night, but deep down I have a love of doing projects around the house - the cheaper the better!  I purchased my first house in July 2012.  It's a brand new, one bedroom plus den, 868 square-foot condo.  I started this blog to document the journey for friends and family, near and far, as I transform this small, builder basic condo, into my first home. Now, this blogging venture has turned into an awesome hobby!  I love a good DIY project and being able to execute some of my crazy visions and then sharing them with you!  So come on in and stay awhile, as I make over this house one step at a time!
