Hi, I’m Callie! Along with my husband, Robert, we’ve been renovating every room of the home we purchased in August 2020. We both work full time, and we have a young son, so our projects have largely been completed on weekends, during nap time, or while one of us is wrangling a toddler away from the worksite. We purchased our outdated home with the goal of making spaces beautiful and functional for our family. But we quickly learned we didn’t have the budget to hire out all of the work. So began our DIY adventures.
We’re no experts–I’m a lawyer by day, and Robert works for a bank. Other than Robert’s summers in college moonlighting in construction and my love for details and design, we have no official training and are simply learning as we go. We hope to help you realize that you don’t have to be an expert to tackle a project in your own home! And you also don’t have to blow your budget! Custom built-in drawers can start off as Ikea bookcases. Stock kitchen cabinets can look custom with the right layout and hardware. You can install your own floors if you watch enough YouTube. And you can get the look of that high-end furniture or lighting if you scour the internet long enough for a deal! (Or, let me do that for you, and just check out my LTK page.)
I’m so happy you’re here, and I hope we get to know each other along the way. We reside in the Cleveland, Ohio area and love that we are close to family here. (Being near a large lake doesn’t hurt either!) In our spare time (ha!) we love to attend concerts, eat good food, drink good wine, and travel. Don’t ever be afraid to leave a comment, and please also give me a follow on Instagram to check out what’s happening with us in real time.
