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!

Last month Lowe’s challenged me to hack a basic picnic table three different ways. It was a perfect at-home challenge that got my creative juices flowing. For this first table, my idea was to elevate the basic picnic table experience and give it a cool vibe. I ended up going a little boho and the results are probably my favorite of the three! I mean, I could totally see something like this for a casual backyard wedding. Check out the project below!



Crazy simple and pretty right?!? I really love this hack!

I’m not a florist, I just play one on TV… lol. I LOVE the impact the live greens made on this project!
