As an artist, this DIY journey is another way to express my creative passions. Five years ago, when I started, we had just downsized into a condo. I began by selling ALL our old furniture and basically began DIY-ing the replacement home decor. You can see the before and after here. I adore rehabbing old items- and to give them new life again. While engaged in a full time MBA program the last two years, I have loved mixing vintage finds and new, modern purchases. Check out our home tour for more on my personal style.
I don't DIY as a necessity. I do it because I CAN and it's FUN! I love the projects. It's a challenge to see how much I can save by making a "knock off" myself. Getting a customized end product is a huge bonus. Every girl likes a deal, why not me?
For example, check out how I knocked off this Ballard Design's Ottoman or this Restoration Hardware Eye Chart Art.
My other major LOVE is my business, Weatherwood Stains. When I graduated from the MBA in April, I launched a business selling reactive wood stain. It's a full-time job in and of itself. My wood stain is all-natural and it turns brand new wood into reclaimed, or barn looking wood.
Since becoming a blogger, I have a built this incredible network of bloggy friends. If you're a blogger too, you can apply for our blogger discount. Pop over to get the details.
