Hi! I am Anika and I blog at Anika’s DIY Life (Anika’s DIY Life). It is a blog about everything DIY – from basic woodworking, furniture makeovers,  Home Décor and fun crafts. My goal is to inspire and encourage DIYers to think outside the box and create décor solutions they love!

I live in Southern California with my husband of 10 years and two young children. I have always loved creating and making things since I was little but in the post teen years, life happened and I drifted away from it. About 6 years ago, on a quest to discover fun furniture for my toddler, I discovered the amazing world of DIY blogs! My very first woodworking build was a kids table and chair set, which is still my favorite! After following almost 50 blogs over 5 years and doing weekend projects, I finally got a chance to turn the dream of sharing my experiences and projects through a blog into reality!

I love lots of color and you will find a lot of unexpected pieces in my home like a faux fur upholstered bench and yellow nightstands in the master bedroom, a fun fabric covered storage ottoman and a red buffet. As much as I love building furniture, I also love easy and simple home décor and organization projects. I believe you can always find the perfect solution to your home décor or organization dilemma if you think outside the box and do it yourself!

I would love for you to connect with me on PinterestFacebookInstagram, and Google+.
