Welcome! I’m Jeanette, and I’m the self-taught DIYer behind Snazzy Little Things.
We love a simple, clean aesthetic in our home. Our style teeters on the edge of farmhouse, but we enjoy making our own art, adding touches of vintage decor, French accents…and we will always make room for an industrial vibe in all of our spaces.
When 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. We’re now hooked on having a clutter-free, easy to maintain home. With our industrial-French-farmhouse 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 new, online store).
I experiment with all decor styles, but decorating “feels right” when it reflects the unique personalities in our household.
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, we found ourselves doing the same thing. 🙂
