When You Wish Upon a DIY
Kate Chipinsiki is a proud mom of two little girls and wife to a handy husband named Mike living in a renovated lake house in Minnesota. The DIYer, eco-friendly designer and home renovator has a knack for upcycling ordinary objects into rustic, industrial works of art. A former co-worker encouraged Kate to start an Instagram featuring her DIY projects, and the rest is handmade history. "I got into DIY design pretty much when we moved into this house," Kate says. "I had been looking for two years for a house on the lake, and I looked at this house and was like, 'This is it.' It was old. It was smelly. But everything I saw looked cosmetic and things that I could easily fix. So we just DIYed our way through the house."
