Hi, we’re Claire and Neil. We are new home owners, pet parents, and diy enthusiasts.
Neil is originally from Athens, Georgia and we met through mutual friends while I was finishing up at The University of Georgia. Two years later we moved back to my hometown in Norfolk, Virginia.
We decided to start this blog as a way to document all of the projects that are going on in our new home. From the moment we walked in we have had a vision on what it will look like. How that plan will come together and how we end up getting there is something we’re still figuring out.
The plan is to update you each week on our progress complete with before photos, materials we used, and of course the end result. You are sure to see projects from our kitchen renovation, vegetable garden, porch makeover, and furniture rehab. Rescue pups, Hampton and Lily, will provide supervison along the way.
Fun Facts About Us
Our Style: Eclectic
Inspiration: Anything colorful and bright
Best DIY Project So Far: Restoring an antique buffet from my Great Aunt’s house.
Favorite Find: We found an amazing 9-foot long table that fits in perfectly with the charm and character of the house. It feels fresh because of its’ unusually narrow 3-foot width and we played up the shape with lucite chairs to make the table the star of the room.
