Hello! I'm Suzannah, a serious DIYer and mom of two little ones. Follow along with my DIY fixer upper house renovations, sewing and crafty projects, real food recipes, and de-stressing goals.
I believe you can love your home just the way it is, AND have the power to design and make big changes to make it better.
I'm also the author of DIY Wardrobe Makeovers!


Welcome! I'm Suzannah!

I'm a mom, design lover, and serious DIY-er (currently renovating-ing our 1937 home outside Portland, Oregon in the neighborhood I grew up in), real foodie/Paleo recipe maker, and at-home workout junkie.

I share a ton of information on this blog--check out my Tutorials page, Room Reveal page of finished projects, and categories in the top menu bar or cloud below. We've been in our current home since July 2018 and we're making our way through the big projects... but my style is also evolving, so some of my projects are small and about bringing unique, high quality touches that really feel like me.

Some back story... one of my biggest accomplishments was renovating our 90's builder basic (fixer upper) home in about 8 months, basically flipping it so we could buy this house. Another accomplishment is writing my book, DIY Wardrobe Makeovers--I have a background in sewing! (This blog used to be called Adventures in Dressmaking.)

For 3 years, I also co-hosted the weekly Your Home Story Podcast (@yourhomestorypodcast on Instagram) with personal, in-depth conversations on resources, experience, and ideas for home decor and DIY projects. (See all the show notes here.) Ashley is still running the podcast and I'll come on as a guest sometimes! It is a great resource.

You can also find me on Instagram sharing design ideas, little projects, and family updates every day.
