Spend some time with three bloggers who love to rip their house apart, then put it back together.
A young married couple from Richmond, with a three-year-old and cute little dog take you along on their renovation and DIY adventures. With a published DIY book and a blog stuffed full of home projects, you feel like you are part of their family. Don’t know what color to paint a room? Check out their handy guide. Want to conceal that ugly microwave but keep it accessible? They have a tutorial on that as well. This blog is centered towards family living, with projects for children’s rooms and family-friendly DIY projects. The blog is strategically and simply categorized into project themes like painting, eco-friendly, and even projects to celebrate that special someone in your life entitled “Lovey-dovey.” Readers beware… the list of enticing projects may lead you on a DIY binge. Check out below to see what may be the chicest nursery ever created by parents.

Blogger Sarah Fogle is a single girl sharing her DIY and home improvement adventures with the world from her home in Atlanta, Ga. She admits that she doesn’t always get projects right, but will go step by step with you in the process of adding your own style to your home, no man required. With in-depth descriptions and some humor to boot, Sarah is like the crafty friend we all have, willing to try anything. Her projects range from heavy duty room remodeling to cute little DIY projects to give an item in her room a whole new look. Who else can say they put in their own butcher’s block counter tops?
Sarah’s journey of DIY can be found at her blog www.uglyducklinghouse.com/
Kit Stansley is another blogger is is a fan of DIY, but with a rustic edge as a nod to her farming experience. Kit and Ugly Duckling House blogger Sarah actually do “Dueling DIY” segments against each other on a home project, and blog about their experiences. Kit is in love with her power drill and shows how girl power and home improvement can go hand in hand. Black Feather Farm is home to one of the biggest projects she has ever done, and where she has learned about farming and keeps animals. Want to build a picnic table? Kit’s got you covered. Want to know more about house building? She reserves a section on her blog for that as well. When she isn’t writing about home improvement and her DIY projects, Kit describes her posts that don’t fit into that category as “General Badassery.” Ready to get down and dirty and plan the home you’ve always dreamed of? Kit is at your service.
