This corner didn’t always look this clean and modern... However growing up I do always remember having a plant tucked in the corner. This wall and corner have seen a massive transformation. Swipe to see the before of what this area looked like and it’s transformation process. . . . . #learningasigo #hexagon #homerenovation #planter #hexagonplanter #beforeandafter #modern #homereno #renovation #lovewhatido #lovemyhome

“You think you can do these things Nemo, but you just CAN’T” -quote from “Finding Nemo”. I was raised by a single father who always told me that the word CAN’T was not in English dictionary... So I grew up with the mindset of this to be true. Until my 11th grade year in English class when I got into a heavily debated discussion with my English teacher about whether the word ”Can’t “ was in the English dictionary as an actual word or not. My entire life my dad had told me that the word ”Can’t” was not an actual word and not in the English dictionary and therefore I could not use it as a phrase or in a sentence. It took me a very long time until I realized that the word, was in fact in the English dictionary...However I truly believe I am who I am today by embodying this mindset that the word ”CAN’T” pushes people to believe they CAN! By not acknowledging the word ”Can’t” #cantisntaword #wontstop #cantstopwontstop #cantstop #hexagon #hexagonshelf #lovewhatIdo #build #create #womanwoodworker #woodworking #woodworker #woodshelf #hexagonshelves #handmade #drive #motivation #letsdothis #go

Keeping with the non-traditional Christmas decor theme this year. It’s been awhile since I made a wine cork wreath. This year I spoiled myself and got a battery operated glue gun by @ryobipowertools and man was that thing useful, and I only walked away with a few burns 🔥 🤷🏼‍♀️ but look at this bad boy... worth it! #corkwreath #nontradional #winecork #winecorkwreath #winecorkart #diy #decor #holidaydecor #handmade #lovewhatyoudo

Renovating my childhood home has brought me a new sense of confidence. whatever I put my mind to I can accomplish, is the motto I live by. My dad would tell me every day how much he loved me and how proud of me he was. Now that he’s passed I have to fill that void for myself. So I tell myself EVER day, how much I love myself and how proud I am to be ME. This type of self-motivation and self Love can sometimes feel weird, but I embrace those feeling and use it as my driving force. I’m weird so feeling weird is normal. Do me a favor, look in the mirror today and tell yourself how much you LOVE yourself, even if it feels weird. Our self-talk is EVERYTHING... ok motivation rant over... P.S. I LOVE YOU! And I love MYSELF. #loveyourself #lovemyself #proud #motivated #womanwoodworker #buildstrengthandconfidence #lovewhatyoudo #lovelife #staypositive #renovation #proudtobeyourdaughter #getweird

What a difference a door can make... This bad boy right here took us six hours to install, when it should’ve only been about an hour however halfway through or six hours in 😑 we realized we were installing it the wrong way.... from inside out instead of outside in. Lesson learned but she’s beautiful and worth every hour spend .... Swipe to see the other photos of before and after and labor of love at this kitchen has gone through along with this back door. #keepingyouproudDAD #renovation #backdoor #homedepot #lessonlearned #buildstrengthandconfidence #build #womanwoodworker #homereno #brightdoor #glassdoor #entrydoor #remodel #lovemyhome

I’m doing Christmas a little different this year. I wanted this year‘s Christmas to represent my dad... A little uncanny, a little untraditional, a little wacky, and not your norm... seems fitting for my dad and our Christmas tree. Since this is the first Christmas without him I felt this was a good way of memorializing him. Forever making you proud dad. “When everyone Zigs, you Zang!”-Dad #christmastree #christmaspalmtree #palmtreechristmas #palmtree #untraditionalchristmas #abnorm #proudtobeyourdaughter #zigzag

Wow... it’s almost been a year of renovating my childhood home... for quite some time the only light at the end of the tunnel were brake lights.... but finally I can see the pot of gold at the end of the 🌈 ... Its been extremely gratifying and humbling the labor of love I’ve put into this home to give it the long-overdue facelift it desperately needed. I grew up in this house with my dad. We shared many amazing memories in this home, especially in our kitchen. The kitchen was extremely tight and had Bright yellow linoleum counters. (Picture a few slides over 😬) My dad and I spent most of the time hanging out in the kitchen even though it was one of the brightest and tights rooms in the house. I can remember my dad saying so many times that he wanted to tear the walls out between the dining room and the kitchen to really open up the space. I knew that was always a dream of his, which makes me even more proud of this space and how I was able to bring his dream into fruition. I learned so many skills and traits from my dad thought the 35 years of him raising me, but one of the most important lessons I've learned came from when he passed away. I learned not to put off my dreams for tomorrow, because tomorrow is not guaranteed, if you have a dream to create or do something, set a deadline for that goal and then go after it, HEAD ON!!!. Having a specific date in mind to strive for... which will keep that driving force alive. I know my dad is looking down and ecstatic with how our kitchen looks now and it looks exactly how he always had envisioned it. Sitting in our kitchen writing this post brings me so much joy... I'm Always trying to make you proud Dad 😉 . . . Swipe to check out the before and after and a quick condensed 1min video of the whole kitchen renovation. Which took almost a year but we did it all ourselves @nobadtides is my husband and partner in crime in this renovation. #lovehome #prouddaughter #lovelife #renovation #kitchenremodel #kitchen #homedepot #kitchenrefresh #remodel #childhoodhome #childhoodhouse #kitchen #remodel #diy #proud #prouddaughter

I’ve been obsessed with adding plants to our home lately. But with that has come finding the right planters and stands for them. After a lot of research I found a bunch of wooden mid century modern stands that looked simple enough I took my hand at making a few myself. I’m extremely proud of how they’ve turned out. I can see some flaws but the labor of love making them out weighs the flaws.... plus the ones I made cost around $100 less then the west elm and other high end versions.

I have a feeling you’re going to see a lot more hexagon shapes in my feed in the near future.... it’s like they’re drawn to me right now.... I randomly came across this one at a thrift store and couldn’t live without it especially with irresistible price of $12. Someone handmade this, how could they donate it or get rid of it?..... well like they say one person‘s trash is another persons treasure. #score #hexagonobsession #hexagon #woodtray #woodnerd #treasurefind #thriftstorefinds #geometricdecor #wood #handcrafted

This shelf in our guest bathroom makes me so freaking HAPPY. I knew I wanted a unique night light 💡 for the bathroom, this 3D printed cordless moon light is everything I wanted and more.... I have to charge it ever four days, but it’s so worth it. I’ve kinda taken the geometric decor thing to the extreme and I love everything about it. #guestbathroom #decor #guestbathroomdecor #hexagon #geometricdecor #nightlight #moonlight #moon #hexagonshelf #homedecor #homereno. #woodnerd
