Tell us a bit about your home and what you love about it the most?

I have labeled my home the "farmer's flea market." I love my home because hardly anything in it is new. Everything is re-purposed and has lots of character!

What was the first DIY project you did to your home or first thing you made for it?

I had little to no money when I moved into my first home. Before even moving in, I knew that a kitchen table was a top priority. I wanted a table I could work at, gather and chat with friends, and host awesome dinner parties on. Unfortunately all the table I saw, were way out of my budget- so I got creative. I spent 2 months collecting different chairs that I liked from thrift stores and flea markets, as well as a table that I scored for 20 bucks. I spent hours sanding everything down and painting each chair a different bright color. Everyone loved it, it was a great conversation piece!

Do you have any tips for staying tidy & organised?

Use a planner! If I don't write down goals for the day, I wouldn't have a clue in the world what to do with my spare time.

If you could tour any celebrities home, who would it be?

If you had three wishes, what changes would you make to your home?

1- I would start with a blank canvas by painting all the walls white. I love bringing color in through decor rather than wall color.
2- I would totally remodel my kitchen and make space for a huge coffee/espresso bar.
3- I would put a brand new fire place in my living room. I can't think of a better way to start and end my day then sitting by a fire place drinking a latte.

Do you do any other crafts and what are your hobbies?

I really enjoy being in nature with my sweet little fur baby and husband.
