Most of you know that one of my passions is DIY. I truly think doing it myself is in my genes. I watched my mom and dad make improvement after improvement on their home and my grandparents did the same thing. I married a handy man and we continue the DIY tradition.
Mr. SP and I enjoy building things together. I come up with the idea and he helps me execute them. We have a lot of fun in the workshop together.
Painting Furniture is one of my newest passions. I so much enjoy finding a piece of furniture that has seen better days and giving it a new life with paint.
I love to craft! Each season you’ll find me making something new for my home. Be sure to visit my project gallery for more craft ideas.
I love vintage and the thrill of finding something old that I can use in my home. Below are four vintage finds from the last few months.
One of the wonderful things about blogging is making friends with other bloggers who share your passion. Below are some of my favorite bloggers who share projects that constantly inspire me.
