This idea if you will was born out of a REALLY bad day, you see I’m a self proclaimed protectionist and up until October 6th (my REALLY bad day) I was “ok” with DIYing all the things and throwing a giant temper tantrum (not on screen for Instagram) and then picking myself up and moving on.

But something inside me broke along with my vase that day and I couldn’t be more grateful! That day and that vase the amazing community that has been following my journey on Instagram came and lifted me up and let me know they too had been there!

The whole thing really got me thinking… We work so hard on projects. Wither it’s big or small it doesn’t quite matter, but with Instagram we style it and do everything to get the perfect picture and then… we move on.

Maybe we turned it around so you couldn’t see the edges that don’t exactly line up or we cropped the picture so you can’t see the uneven edges, or it could be the simple fact that we didn’t get around to caulking the seams before we wanted to get the picture up.

Now don’t get me wrong there are some projects that go off without a hitch but I’m not sure that I’ve personally had any of those so far.

So I came up with #FailsToFantastic

The first Sunday of every month I will pick a project that I have completed (or one the lovely folks that flipped my home did) and I will show you how/why it is a “fail” and then I am going to show you how to fix it and make it “fantastic”.

On that same token, I want YOU to share your projects with me. Maybe it’s a project you’ve already completed or one that you need some guidance on. Use #FailsToFantastic and tag me in your pictures so I can see them.
