This blog started as a journal to share work from my textile business, Shibang Designs back around 2009. Since then, I became a homeowner, passionate about working with what I have to make my home a reflection of what I love – on a tight budget.
My first project was painting the fireplace and that felt like such a risk! After seeing the improvement I quickly got to work painting most surfaces I could find, then refinishing wood furniture and eventually building my own furniture & installing moulding.
Now on my blog I share my experiences with these projects in hopes that this will give you confidence to tackle a new project and see your space with fresh eyes.
I have been featured on Apartment Therapy for these projects and have partnered with Metrie, The Home Depot Canada and Wayfair Canada for DIY projects.
