About Me

Graphic designer. Business owner. Blogger. Photographer. Renovator. Mama to my sweet pup, Gracie.  I am passionate about finding beauty in the old and worn out and creating designer style on a shoe string budget.

I call Fayetteville, West Virginia home.  I have lived in Colorado, South Carolina and New Mexico and I am proud to say that I am finally back where I belong.  In fact, I love it so much, I’m setting down roots.  In June 2014, I bought a 1920′s Stucco charmer and am in the process of renovating it into a home.   As much as I love working on houses, I love being outside just as much.  When I’m not renovating, you’ll find me hiking through the woods with Gracie or on my mountain bike.

About The Mustard Ceiling

I started The Mustard Ceiling in January, 2011 as a way to share interior design inspiration and DIY projects.  It began with the small renovation of my first house, a 1950′s brick rancher in Clovis, NM.  Since the start of The Mustard Ceiling, I have moved three times, improving properties all along the way.  As I continue to grow through blogging, so does the list of topics I blog about.  The Mustard Ceiling still focuses primarily on interior design and DIY,  but I have added a little photography, healthy recipes and life into the mix.

My dream has always been to renovate a house.  To take something that has been under-appreciated and neglected and bring it back to life.  As I mentioned above, in June 2014, I started that journey when I bought my second home, a historical little Stucco bungalow, built in 1929. This home has great bones and is in need of a lot of TLC.  I am excited to share the journey with you as I turn another house into a home, while tackling my first full renovation project.

My goal at The Mustard Ceiling is to inspire others to get creative, whether it be through design, DIY, photography, or healthy recipes.

Thanks for stopping by, stay awhile!
