hey there! I'm monica 

I pride myself on making amazing style and design accessible for everyone, regardless of location, budget, or ability! My design philosophy is rooted in authenticity + attainability - If I can do it, you can too! My work has been featured in countless publications, but I take the most pride in homeowners that have been personally inspired by my DIY ideas and have tried something in their own homes!

Yesterday we were talking about the sad state of my Billy Bookshelves.  The first fabric wasn’t right, so we’re going to this fabulous orange.  Can’t wait!
I also showed some re purposed items that I found around the house… Armed with lots and lots of spray paint, I went to town…
1.  Black and Red Book end… meet eggplant spray paint
2. Old-school style metal frame… gets a little navy
3. $1.00 letter needs a little yellow lovin’
4. Mr. and Mrs. lookin’ fine like a disaster… OMW this was such a disaster! I must have tipped these guys over in the grass 100 times.
Did I mention that sometimes I’m impulsive and not the most prepared DIYer?
But in the end… All Worth It!
5. Now this is where I might have gotten a little carried away…  My kids were losing it!! How will we ever know where places are Mom?  In my defense, it was in the basement and I didn’t know they ever looked at it… looks like I’m buying a new globe!
6.  This little flea market find has been waiting for a purpose…
Ok, one final picture, that sort of makes me laugh…
I sprayed the picture frame, but can you guess what else????
Yep, the candle! It once was green! (I fully recognize I have issues!)
See what you can do with a little color?  I can’t wait to top it off with new fabric and then reveal the finished product (and I promise not to take night pictures again- ugh… the colors are awful!)
So, what have you spray painted?  Is anyone as addicted as I am?
