Meet the Blogger: Not Just a Housewife

Hello there! We are excited to share this month’s Meet the Blogger post! Meet Stacy from Not Just a Housewife!

A Dreamy Brick Wall, Gallery Walls, Modern Bathroom And More. Our Favorite Not Just A Housewife Projects Featured On

Hello! I am so happy to be posting over here on Remodelaholic! Cassity and I are friends in real life and live not too far from each other. She is amazing and I am so glad to be swapping with her today. My favorite thing about blogging is all the friends (bloggers and readers) that I have met that have the same interests as I do.

My name is Stacy Risenmay and I blog over at Stacy Risenmay- Not Just A Housewife. I have been DIYing since I was a kid. I use to sneak into my dad’s shed and get his hand saw and create things from his scrap wood pile. By 15 I was decorating rooms and doing furniture makeovers. I built my first piece of furniture shortly after getting married and it has been all uphill from there! I share my journey of fixing up our 1938 home on my blog. Room makeovers, woodworking projects, gardening, the occasional kid activity or craft, and holiday decor are all things I love to share on my site. Here are a few of my favorite projects.

Sliding Wall To Hide Electrical Boxes

I recently added a paver patio to the back of our house. We had one problem though… Ugly electrical boxes smack dab in the center of it. I came up with a solution. I made a sliding wall to hide it! It easily glides out of the way when you need to access the electrical boxes and goes right back when you are done.


Mountain Themed Boys Room

I have two boys who love the mountains. Anything to do with nature, really. When I was designing and planning their room makeover, I had a lot of fun using the mountains as inspiration. They have a seating area, a gallery wall above their dresser, and unique L shaped beds with a fort underneath. Head over to see the full room!

Living Room

Our house is always slowly morphing as one thing gets worn out and is replaced or as I move things to different rooms and rearrange. I love our family room because of all the natural light! We recently got a new sofa and I changed up the gallery wall to show some of our favorite places to visit.

Bathroom Mirror with a Secret!

We recently gutted the bathroom and gave it a huge makeover. When we took down the big bulky medicine cabinet to find the recessed area the original medicine cabinet fit in. I really wanted to a round mirror but I also really wanted to use the recessed area for storage. Head over to see what I ended up doing!

Faux Brick Wall

My other two boys wanted a new space too and since they both love music I decided to go with a more urban vibe. This faux brick wall was the perfect addition! I love how it looks aged. You should check out the whole room including the two beds I built.

Thanks for letting me share a few of my recent favorite projects. I have a big curb appeal makeover that will be up on the blog soon as well as a teen girl bedroom makeover, a kitchen makeover, and my Halloween decor.
