Hi, my name is Lori Leeper and I'm the writer behind The Stonybrook House. I started this blog after I became an empty nester and had all of this extra time on my hands. We built an awesome house and now we have the time to paint and decorate. Through The Stonybrook House, I share all the ins and outs the ups and downs of transforming this house into a home. I also share my other hobbies like gardening, baking, painting, crafting, sewing and crocheting. It's important to us (me & hubby) that we do it ourself, as cheap as we can without sacrificing quality and style. We are doing it our way!
