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!

Hey Guys!!  I’m so glad to be back today with the details of our Craft Room Makeover! It’s been too long! Jess and I were in Salt Lake City last week for the SNAP blogger’s conference and then well… our blog crashed for about 24 hours (yeah that’s SO not cool!), but now we’re up and running!  While we were in Utah we spoke about our journey from blogger to full-time TV designers and hosts and it was really neat to have to look back and really think through our journey so far.  We loved speaking, but we probably loved all the prep work of looking back and seeing how goofy we were (okay, still are) and how excited we felt every step of the way!

As soon as we got our own DIY show, we knew we wanted to makeover a craft room.  Amazingly, it took us almost 3 seasons before we got our hands on one, but I’m glad we waited for just the right one, because the results were awesome!

Here’s where this basement room started off when we arrived…  there was nothing crafty-cool or inspiring about it!  And that lighting… hello Office Space!! (Which BTW is a classic movie!)

Craft Room Makeover BEFORE

The homeowner wanted light, bright, girly, kinda shabby-chic, and a touch modern.  Well, I can do modern and bright, but if you know me, I’m SO not girly- Jess is more girly, but overall not-so-much.  We knew we’d have to channel our inner Pinkalicious to pull this makeover off.  We dug deep, and in the end, man, oh, man we loved this space!!  The hexagon quilt wall…  I die!

  2. I watched this episode today on the LWN out of Detroit (I live in Canada!) – Great projects and I LOVED the idea of using scrapbook paper to make the quilt wall! So inspiring!

  3. PEG BOARD! I’m obsessed

    • Monica says:

      Aren’t they so useful, and you can really dress them up for your space too! Thanks for helping us and leaving your input Carissa!

  4. Wow, that is one amazing craft room! I love the peg board storage and I think I have to make one of those wall fabric organizers for my room…it looks so beautiful! So much inspiration in that video…I don’t know what I love the best. I can’t get LWN up here so I have to watch your shows online…when I remember.
    Debbie 🙂
