Oh, hey there! I’m Gemma and the guy in the picture is my hubby Dan. We call Ottawa, Canada home – I work in public health (well, right now I’m off on maternity leave!) and Dan is a tech guy, but we both totally dig doing projects around the house. In 2009, after visiting over 20 houses and browsing countless real estate listings, we finally found our perfect fit: a 3-bed, 2-bath brick bungalow with tons of potential. Ever since we have been transforming that house from super boring to super sweet, learning as we go. In 2011 we got married (check that out here), and in 2013 welcomed our daughter Maya to our family.

Join us DIYers on our adventures and misadventures (and everything that happens in between!) of renovating and decorating our home, all on a shoestring budget with our sweet daughter in tow. Grab your paint supplies, toolkit, and be ready for a giggle!

Thanks for stopping by!
