Hi, I’m Vineta, also known as The Handyman’s Daughter. Thanks for stopping by. Curious about who writes this blog? Read on!
I’m a stay-at-home mom to our nine-year-old son in Seattle, Washington. I started The Handyman’s Daughter to share the step-by-step instructions on how to make our awesome TARDIS door, but I soon found I truly love inspiring people to create and update their homes.
I’ve always enjoyed doing things for myself. I get that from my dad. Growing up, he was always working on something, whether it was fixing a car, working on the house, or building something in his workshop. He was quite the handyman! I always consult him first whenever I have a question about my own DIY projects.
We bought our 1946 Cape Cod style home in the summer of 2014, and I have been working ever since to make it our own. The last time this house was updated was in the 1980’s, so there are plenty of projects to keep me busy for years!
Interior design is one of my passions (and even went to school to study it for a year before our son was born). I love being able to design each room of the house to reflect our family’s personality. With my newfound love of woodworking, now I can create any piece of furniture I can imagine! I taught myself SketchUp, so I can provide my readers with free woodworking plans of the projects I create.
Thanks for reading, and for allowing me to share my quest for the perfect home with you. If you have any questions or comments, or would like to collaborate with The Handyman’s Daughter, you can contact me anytime at [email protected].
