Before I started my DIY Instagram page, we built our fireplace. It was the first project we built from scratch. I’ve always loved DIY projects but this particular project lit a passion that now burns very bright and I’m excited for this journey on IG and the community I’ve found.

Kitchen remodel phase I – Window and wall removal

Kitchen remodel with wall removal, french door installation, and new cabinets & layout in kitchen.

When my husband and I bought this house we envisioned having an open concept plan for the kitchen, lounge, and dining area.

Recreate Studio McGee Olive pot with what I had

A few months back I ordered a Studio McGee Olive pot from Target, you can find it here. Unfortunately, they packaged it so badly when they shipped it, that it broke.

I couldn’t bring myself to throw away such pretty stems. I ended up keeping them and hoped I would find some use for them.
