Welcome To Brown Girls DIY Too …..

Hey! I’m Melanie, a thirty-something homeowner from Philadelphia and I am absolutely inspired/obsessed with turning something OLD into something shiny and NEW – it’s an utter turn on however when I can do it for next to no money at all. ( I WILL TOTALLY DUMPSTER DIVE OR PICK UP DIS-GUARDED FINDS ON THE CURB ON TRASH DAY)

My daily challenge is to find ways to create beauty and happiness through the Do-It-Yourself approach. On this blog I’ll share home décor projects, craft and home renovations, both the good and the total fails.

I believe in life long learning, which means I’m constantly trying, failing, dreaming big dreams and trying to embrace all of the imperfections – all while having a blast enjoying the small things afforded to me.

Stay tuned for all of my DIY and Thrifting projects, tips and tricks!

Thanks For Reading

  1. Hey Melanie! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I really appreciate your visit. I read that you are from Philadelphia. My husband grew up in Mt. Airy and I am from NJ. We lived in Germantown and Northeast right before we moved to Georgia. Looking forward to your projects. Take care!


    • Hi Brandi! Thanks so much for your comment. I lived in Mt. Airy for most of my life and bought my first home in Olney (where I currently live) about 5 years ago, I’m now finding it’s time to spruce up and freshen up this joint – so DIY it is! Love your blog and looking forward to your future projects and post! Thanks again!
