About Us

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!

  1. Hi there! I came across your blog on Pinterest and was stopped in my tracks when I saw your dogs!! They look exactly like our dog Jackson’s. We rescued him from a shelter when he was a pup and have always wanted to know what his breed is?? What are your dogs? Thanks for the info 🙂

    All my best,

  2. I am sure the above commenter will probably never see this, but I have to say it anyway:) I also ended up here after seeing a pin and stopped over the dog because it looks just like mine!! 🙂 I was looking to see if it said here what breed, but I have to say, it must be a Wheaten Terrier!! I live my wheatie!!!!😍🐶

  3. I too came across your blog on Pinterest, particularly the post on your stained concrete porch and the planter boxes. I would like to ask if you could send some pictures of the front of your house to include the landscaping and walkway. My house is very similar and we are preparing to redo our landscaping against the house and along the walkway and from what I can tell from your close up pictures, I love the look you have achieved!
