About Us

Hey, everyone!

I’m Brittany, my younger sister, and I have an obsession with all things DIY from food to home. I love to create new recipes that are easy, tasty, and healthy (I work part-time as a registered dietitian, so I just can’t help myself).

I like to keep things real and down to earth since I’m a first-time mom to a little boy, and sometimes life can get a little crazy–that’s why I love to keep my home functional and cozy, but beautiful at the same time.

In addition to working part-time and having a toddler, I love to run around and find steals and deals on everything from home décor, groceries, and stuff for the kiddos. My loving husband likes to call me the deal queen! I hope you enjoy the blog & feel inspired to try out some delicious recipes with your family and friends, and don’t forget to check out some of our DIY posts! We would love to hear from you, feel free to reach out to us via our email!

Hi, Y’all!

Thanks for stopping by Thrifty Divas DIY! My name is Chantelle. My older sister, Brittany, and I love to DIY and thought starting a blog would be an excellent way to stay connected since we live a few states away.

I came down to the south for school, I met my hubs and never left. A little over a year ago we decided to plant our roots in Alabama and buy our first home. My husband and I decided we wanted a fixer-upper that we could put our unique touch on. We bought a house with a design that was straight out of the 90’s and was in dire need of some major updates. Throughout our renovation journey, we’ve shared laughs, tears, and moments of, “what the heck were they thinking—what the heck were WE thinking???”

In addition to my affinity for binge watching home improvement TV shows, and being a Pinterest junkie, I love cooking for my friends and family, shopping, traveling, and like any other southern at heart girl, watching college football. Keep an eye out for my fur babies, Boone and Grover who sometimes like to take advantage of some of the photo ops! Hope Y’all Enjoy the blog, and we inspire you to create!
