The blog started as my personal journey through home transformations on a tight budget. It's grown into a space where I share mistakes, victories, and step-by-step projects to empower others. Through this platform, I aim to instill confidence in every reader, showing that a dream home isn't about how much you spend, but how much love and effort you pour into it.
My DIY voyage began as a simple creative outlet. With my husband in medical school and our budget tighter than ever, I was determined to make our tiny bedroom both comfortable and beautiful. That first project of building a nightstand using just a drill and some wood I had Home Depot cut was pivotal. Not only did it bring furniture to our space, but it also awakened a creative spirit within me that I hadn’t realized existed.
As the years have gone by and our family has grown...and grown...and grown some more (with no end in sight), my love for DIY hasn't waned. In fact, it’s grown stronger. Every corner of our home tells a story, a testament to late nights, mistakes made, lessons learned, and the sheer joy of crafting something with my own two hands. Crystel Montenegro Home isn’t just about the projects though. It’s about resilience, discovery, and the belief that with a bit of grit and creativity, anyone can transform their space.
