Welcome to my crazy DIY world!  
 DIY, organization, interior design and decorating are my passion.  I love things to look great and function well for everyday life of a "real"  family of eight.  Oh and did I mention I like to do this all on a "small" budget.  OK, I'm cheap, but I don't think it shows.  When I am not working on a project you may find me on the side of the road scavenging through a pile of junk or picking through the neighbors trash.  I use lots of second hand materials to create wonderful rooms. My projects have been featured in magazines like Better Homes and Gardens, This Old House Magazine, and Cottages and Bungalows. I have been featured on my other blogs, websites and local Television. My biggest feature is the video Houzz did about my laundry room make over. It has over 6 million views. I would love to have you follow me and all my adventures.  My projects are in "real" time.  I have six children plus a daughter in law, so I post as we get to each task.  Come along and follow real DIY .  
If you have questions or comments I would love to hear from you:
