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!

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, His love endures forever.  Psalm 107:1
Jess and I want to wish you a very happy Thanksgiving.  We have so much that we’re thankful for and one of those things is this blog and the amazing experiences that we’ve had this year.  This blog has also helped bring two best friends even closer together.  I feel so blessed to have a bff that is authentic, supportive, passionate, fun, and someone that I can journey through this crazy life with.  We’re both also so thankful for YOU, our readers.  We really do love this little ole blog and thank you for supporting us!
I recently came across this quote and it had a big impact on me.  I’ve shared it with my kids and hope that they will not only talk about what they’re thankful for, but also use their blessings as a daily expression of thanksgiving.
Have a wonderful day with your family and friends!
P.S.  Did you think I’d leave you hanging on the dining room?  bahaha… never! Here’s just a teeny sneak peek.  I still have lots of accessorizing to do, but for today it’s just perfect.
I can’t wait to show you what this mirror looked like before some DIY love!
Lots of blank wall space, but of course  I have some big plans!

  6. @Anonymous One reader asked about the table runner I (Monica) made for Thanksgiving. I’ll post a few pics and tips on our Facebook page for you! Shoot me an email for more details. I loved it so much that I might make one for Christmas too!

    Monica (and Jess)

  7. @Samantha Thanks so much! We had a wonderful day and all 35 people fit amazingly well and had a really special day. I hope yours was nice too!
