About The DIY Homegirl
Growing up in the Midwest, I was raised with a strong work ethic. I was brought up to be budget-conscious, to reuse and repurpose items (hello, cupboard full of Cool Whip containers!), and to be discerning when it was feasible to splurge a little. As kids, we used to laugh at how often my dad would bring home something he found on the curb. Looking back, I’m glad I was raised in such a humble way and have carried these principles into my decorating.
The decor and design world is full of fabulous spaces, many of which I draw inspiration from. Unfortunately, these just aren’t what most of us have, nor what most of us can afford. We need chic and attainable decor. We need our homes to look great while being practical for our lifestyles.
That’s why my mission is to help you decorate for the real world. Having lived in apartments since I first moved away from home, I’ve learned some tricks for how to decorate in a rental space. I’ve learned how empowering it can be to DIY something instead of buying it outright. I’ve also given secondhand items and furniture a new life with a variety of makeover methods.
In the near future, I will be launching services to help you decorate your home. Stay tuned for more info! In the meantime, if you have a question about decorating or DIY, shoot me a message here.
