Hi all. The purpose of this blog is trifold: to show off our newly-created pieces, to keep out of town family in the loop on our latest undertaking, and to give those interested a guide or trail, if you will, to completing a few do-it-yourself projects around the home. Here’s a little background on us: I’m Hannah and my mom is Laura. We have 2 dogs, Stella and Rosie, who will without a doubt be in almost everyone of our pictures because 1. they’re always in the way and 2. we totally stage the pictures to get them in there. After graduating from college, I moved back to my home town and into the house in which I grew up. Speech pathologists by trade, we work on the house in our spare time. As self made DIYers, we have not always been the independent workers we are today. I fully credit my mom for starting this creative, handy phase of our lives. After her divorce 3 years ago, newly single, on a budget, and hell bent on making this house her own, we started remodeling room by room. Now, it is rare that we don’t have a project (or 5) in the works. We have the determination to learn how to do something ourselves and the good sense to know when to call in the professionals. We learned most of what we know from diy websites, YouTube videos, and blogs just like this. I hope others can benefit from our new found knowledge, learn from our missteps, and share in the sense of accomplishment that comes with building something of your own. Thanks for hearing what we have to say!
