I love creating things with my hands, and there is just something extremely satisfying about doing it yourself. 

Whether it's refinishing thrifted furniture or assembling the perfect bridal bouquet, I'm all about doin' it myself and picking up some new skills along the way.

Here are a handful of my favorite projects.

Floral Designs

For my vintage themed summer wedding, I was determined to create all of the floral designs myself. So the day before I said "I do," I woke up at the crack of dawn to purchase flowers at the LA Flower Mart for my big day. I made my bouquet, boutonnieres for my husband and immediate family, and prepared each centerpiece myself. 

I've been hooked ever since, and have had the pleasure of designing the floral arrangements at the two more weddings of my close friends. 

DIY at Home

To me, a good thrift store find is like finding a diamond in the rough. You just gotta help the piece a little bit to unlock it's potential.
