Hiya! I’m Amanda- furniture flipping and DIY project obsessed single mommie, re-building a life I love after completely losing myself to a toxic marriage.

I’m not expert, just a girl with a passion (cough..obsession) for inspiring you to transform broken into beautiful because I too have been broken.

Fixing furniture, homes, hearts and souls.

Come be a part of this imperfect journey.

My Story

I am working on catching you up on what’s brought me to this point in my life. Everything from my first DIYs to my latest fixer upper, life with an addict as a husband, how I moved onward and upward as a single mom, to dating and blending a family. Check back because it’s all coming soon!


I love decorating my home, but I’ve always been a frugal shopper, so the items in my home aren’t necessarily expensive, just selected. It may sound superficial, but decorating and the aesthetics of my home matter to me; it’s about creating a feeling. I have an eye for seeing the hidden potential in things, which is why I’ve been able to haul home furniture from the curb and transform it into something I’m proud to display in my home. I’m here to show you budget decor doesn’t mean cheap or ugly!
