Honey Do Home Projects!

2015.08.31 under construction

MegMade was birthed because of our love for all things handy! Well Joe and I are back at it again! We’ve finally brought on some amazing people to work with us at MegMade so when we come home at night we can devote ourselves to our passion…PROJECTS!

We have been selected by Neighborhooding to have our house featured! If you saw our house feature on Apartment Therapy two years ago, you’ll be excited to hear we are in over-drive mode to update it again! The great thing about getting featured isn’t necessarily the exposure (which is great) it’s the kick in the pants to get all the things done that we have to get done!

The satisfaction about accomplishing your “to do” list is an AMAZING feeling.

So here is our list! We are going to blog about each project we accomplish! Understand we are on a very limited budget so almost everything will be done by us!!
