Welcome! I’m Jeanette, and I’m the self-taught DIYer behind Snazzy Little Things. I named my blog “Snazzy Little Things” after a phrase my grandpa used to say when he was in the throes of refinishing antiques and furniture. And now, I find myself doing the same thing. 🙂
Since 2012 my husband Mark and I have been remodeling our home on a modest budget. My style has evolved into what I call “refined farmhouse” — but we just moved into a modern classic fixer upper, so we’re attempting to make sense of it all. I love mixing old and new, French accents…and finding subtle (but cheap) ways to incorporate trends without going overboard. We love high-contrast interiors and we are hooked on having a a clutter free, easy to maintain aesthetic in our home.
Our story: We arrived at this conclusion after Mark and I were married we combined our two houses into one. Once we settled, we were overwhelmed with crazy amounts of “stuff” –it took us awhile to purge the excess and figure out our style. That journey unfolds here on the blog. With our industrial-Frenchy vision in mind, we customized our builders-grade home on an extreme budget. If we can’t find furniture or decor that we like in stores – we repurpose flea market finds or make our own in our woodshop! (Many of our designs are now available in our online store).
I experiment with all decor styles, but decorating feels right when it reflects the unique personalities in our household.
