Hi there! Welcome to The Designer DIY, a home decor & lifestyle blog helping you get a designer look for your home on a DIY budget. I’m Meredith, a 20-something graphic designer + marketing guru living in a little old farmhouse in Southwestern Ontario.

I’ve been blogging on-and-off since the early 2000’s after I learned basic HTML and CSS to make Piczo websites to share photos with my friends. I turned that little hobby into a full-time career and went to school for Graphic Design in Hamilton, Ontario. The Designer DIY is all about my favourite pastimes – decorating, creating & saving money. You will almost always find me creating whether it’s at work as a marketing coordinator, or at night when I’m crafting, scrapbooking, quilting, blogging or a number of other creative hobbies. My hands almost always have paint on them and I’d take my small town farmhouse over a big city condo any day. My obsessions include: my furbabies (two cats, Chandler & Chuck and two dogs, Penny & Pickles), maps, anything nautical, binge watching tv shows, hexagons, thrift stores, new york city, falling asleep during movies, and so much more.
