Hi! Nice to meet you. I’m Kwane Neely (pronounced kwah-nee), a self-proclaimed DIY Re-purposer.
DIY re-pur-pos-er (n.): person that tries to change something so that it can be used for a new purpose without losing any fingers.
I had an early love of antiques and re-purposing thanks to a childhood girlfriend. Her house was full of warm, cozy, welcoming pieces…an old trunk turned coffee table, a pie safe holding blankets, a beautiful dressing vanity. Her parents had impeccable taste. I didn’t appreciate it at the time but now I can’t stop at an antique shop or antique fair without thinking of them. They sparked my love of antiques which led to my obsession for re-purposing.
I am a professional by day and a DIY Warrior on the weekends. I do everything by trial and error so know that the projects I share do not come with insurance.
Thanks for reading my blog and Happy DIY-ing!
