Greetings from Barry & Tina, we’re excited you found your way here!

A little intro to us in Fort St John, thanks to Emily Moyes with Shaw TV Northern BC


We are a crazy busy family with 3 beautiful children,  two daughters and a son. We are grandparents to 2 amazing grand babies.  We also have 3 dogs, and a cat.  We have a mutual love for anything and everything DIY.  We see things we love and of course always drawn to the more expensive items so instead of buying them, we make and do anything we can do ourselves.  Pinterest addicts are us – So many ideas and NEVER enough time.  We live in Northern BC and we love snow…NOT!  Our winters are long and cold, but on the upside we get lots of projects done.  We’re never really done though, always another great idea, new colour, texture, garage sale or thrift store find, donated pallets or barn boards, you get it… darn Pinterest 😉  We live for the beautiful northern summers we are blessed to have here and spend a lot of time outdoors with our family, camping, gardening and soaking up all the beautiful warm sunshine.

We’re hoping we will inspire you to find your own inspiration, grab a paint brush and DIY! It’s really not as difficult as you might think, c’mon you can do it!

Thanks so much for stopping by, we hope you’ll come back often 🙂
