Meet: Sweet Monica from Monica Wants It. I’ve e-known Monica and her amazing DIY talents for quite a while. I’m super excited to ‘show off’ her most recent project. This girl (and her hubby) put in some long hours and hard work and it’s well did an amazing job!

Combined Home Office/Dining Room Makeover
