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:
