What is the difference between the house/apartment and a home? The difference is in these little things around us, that we love and makes us happy and comfortable. "A home is made of bricks and beams, a home is built of love and dreams." We moved to current apartment exactly a year ago and since then I've been trying to turn it into a home. I'm still a student (I hope only for 2 more months), so I don't have much money to decorate the place as I want to. That's why I love DIY projects! With a little time and effort you can make amazing things! One thing that I've wanted to do for a long time is to decorate the empty wall behind my desk with some photos and printed or painted quotes.
