Tire to tableThis is one of my favorite of her DIY projects. An old tire into an adorable coffee table.

Drawers to barDon’t you love this one? From clothes drawers to bar.

ShelfAnother super cute idea!

Isn’t she talented? You should see her themed parties. Amazing. Really.

If you want to learn more about Larisa. Here’s a little info:

Southern aloha is what best describes me. My less formative years were spent in Atlanta, Georgia and my more formative years in Hawaii. I like to think the two geographies have combined to form one chaotic, charming conglomerate named Larisa. She is 38 going on 16. She obsesses about nearly everything. She sings her heart out in traffic. She likes competition. She can’t whistle. Not even a little bit…

She is a self taught baker and furniture painter. She struggles with parenting two boys. She enjoys movies…more than the average person does. Pizza and beer and call it a day. Books are her biggest treasure and music makes her soul happy. You can find her anywhere there’s a good view, an iced cold brew, and fun reads to peruse. She is me. You can follow her on Instagram or on her blog Lifeoflarisa.
