Welcome to Sweet Pea!
I’m Paula and I started this blog in 2009 as a way to share my projects. I love to be domestic and think that there’s no better place to be than home. I enjoy DIY, decorating, crafting, cooking, gardening and being active.
We live in a late 1950’s Cape Cod that my husband purchased before I met him. During our 25 year marriage, working on our home to improve it has been a constant.
My mom was a teacher as was my grandfather and many other relatives. I think that my love of teaching transfers over to my blog where I enjoy sharing the “how-to” behind projects be it a recipe, craft, or woodworking project.
Having cancer is horrible. I don’t often mention my cancer on my blog as it is depressing and I try to live like a normal person. I definitely enjoy every minute of every day!
My husband and I enjoy completing DIY and woodworking projects together.
Don’t miss the transformation of our unfinished lake house basement into a family room, bathroom, and bedroom.
We made this tennis racket table using tennis rackets that we sourced from thrift shops. It’s always a conversation piece when people see it in our lake house bedroom. If you like this project, don’t miss our DIY tennis racket basket.
A DIY projects that I use every single day is a DIY under bed storage drawer. Our 1950’s home has small closets and not a lot of storage.
