Inside the Chest

About Me, decor, diy, Journal

Hi, I’m Meriel. You can call me Mer, or whatever else strikes your fancy. I’m a Nebraska born and raised girl. I’m a coffee enthusiast and self proclaimed professional couponer. In my very near future I hope to own a dog. Has anyone else ever tried to write about themselves? Wow, this is so much harder than I anticipated it to be.

Basically, as a kid I watched my mom parade around garage sales finding the best bargain for an old chair or dresser she could recover or repaint. She has paved the way for my love of decorating and DIYing. They always say moms know best right? So, here I am – wanting to help those who need a few pick me ups on DIY’s. Enjoy!

For my more professional readers:

Hi, I’m Meriel. By day, I’m a 25 year old Pediatric Dental Assistant. My husband and I have been married since June of 2017. He’s a project manager for a commercial construction company all while building homes on the side, honestly he comes in really handy when a new project arises! We enjoy traveling, and sitting on our couch eating kettle popcorn. My decorative style is a mixture of modern farmhouse and rustic. I truly believe Lambs Ear saves lives in all rooms, and plaid too. I started learning Calligraphy about a year ago, I taught myself by many YouTube videos and following Pinterest pages, in which now many signs warm the walls of our home. In my spare time I wander the aisles of Home Goods, Hobby Lobby and Cooper & Co. stirring up ideas for decorating or DIYing. Enjoy!
