My husband Stephen and I moved from Arkansas to Denver, CO in 2014, and we are loving life in our new state with our two little girls. I always have a project up my sleeves and love sharing renovation tips and tricks on my way to Before & Afters. I love inspiring others to tackle DIY projects because being proud of where you live starts with saying "I did that myself!"
Welcome to Heardmont - I'm so happy you're here!

Yesterday when I showed you our spring-y master bedroom update, I mentioned that I made the Euro shams you saw on our bed. If you’ve been reading our blog for very long, you probably know I’m no stranger to 1) … Continue reading
