About Me

Hi! I’m Mary. I run this crazy fun business called The Handcrafted Haven.

My motto is “Build, paint, thrift, repeat!” I love sharing home DIY tutorials and home decor ideas with you. I hope I inspire you to take on home DIY projects. I hope that you feel empowered and equipped to create a home that you truly love being in.

Once upon a time (not that long ago!) I was terrified of power tools and thought I had no design sense. Guess what? I learned both those things! You can too. I promise.

What can you expect from me? Furniture refinishing projects, complete room transformation, seasonal decor ideas, simple home decor DIYs and more!

I live in northern Wisconsin (even though I hate winter – hah!). I have an amazing husband and the sweetest two little kids. I love coffee, wine and spreading joy into the world. Follow me on social media to stay in the know on the little things I do to spread a little extra happiness into the world (like free coffee Mondays!).

I genuinely love to hear from you. I love questions. I love comments. I love “just saying hi!” messages. Shoot me a note and let’s connect!
