Sadie’s Old House (SOH) is owned by me, Chelle Ellis, an artist, writer, and owner of Moosh Print Studio.  This website is used as an extension of my art studio and for the purpose of inspiring homeowners with creative and inexpensive decorating ideas.

This website is provided for entertainment and informative purposes only and is intended for adult users only.  While SOH is a family-friendly website and does not contain any material of a “mature” nature, the projects, tutorials, and articles found here are intended for an adult audience, as they include the use of power tools, chemicals, and other items that can cause injury (or worse) to children.

Projects & Tutorials

Neither I nor any of my contributors claim to be professionals in the areas of DIY (do-it-yourself) projects or home improvement.  We are simply people who enjoy decorating, DIY projects, and home improvement projects, and enjoy sharing our process along the way.  Our suggestions, methods, and tutorials are not error-free, and we make absolutely no guarantees that readers who tackle these projects will have the same outcome.

If you choose to use one of the tutorials on this website, you do so at your own risk.  Please use extra safety precautions (even if they are not specifically mentioned in the tutorial, e.g., the use of protective goggles, gloves, etc., when needed), and do any additional research needed so that you feel comfortable taking on these projects and using the suggested tools.  And most importantly, please use common sense.

By using this website (and any of the tutorials or decorating advice found on SOH), you agree that if you are injured while attempting something you’ve seen on Sadie’s Old House, or if a project does not yield the results that you intended after following the tutorials and tips shown here, you will not hold Sadie’s Old House, Chelle Ellis, Moosh Print Studio, or any contributor to Sadie’s Old House liable in any way.
