Since 2019, I started an Instagram page sharing my DIY design journey of DIY design in my own home.  I hope to inspire you to create a beautiful and functional home on a budget and love forward to working with you in future design projects.  

Functional, beautiful DIY design in West Michigan.  

I'm so glad you're here!

After 7 years of teaching, I became a stay-at-home mom (now 15 years ago) which meant learning how to live on one income (sometimes as low as $30k a year).  Although this was challenging, it taught me how to create beauty in my home by thrifting, shopping deals and renovating our home, with the help of my handy husband. I love intentional design with neutrals (function and beauty on a budget is my jam) and love helping others create a cozy home on a budget too.

Ask for a consultation in your next home project or renovation.  


I have worked primarily with my husband, Mitch, who does most of the demo and construction in our DIY renovation in our home.  He is very good at bringing my vision to life.   We truly are a DIY couple.  

Mitch loves to build custom woodwork and specializes in building accent walls and custom vanities.  He may be available for custom work in your space.   

Our DIY Family

I love creating a cohesive decor style to a space that is both functional and beautiful.  I enjoy finding vintage items along with new decor on a budget with SAVE and SPLURGE items.

My husband and I have learned how to do DIY home and RV renovation over the past 20 + years.  We hope to work with clients to create their dream RV by providing a custom RV design and consultation.
