About Highheels and a Hammer

Hi, I’m Kristen.  I’m a full-time mom to three incredible kids and the wife of an amazing and supportive husband.  I appreciate great style and design, making my house a home, and taking the ordinary and making it extraordinary.

I enjoy the freshness that comes with change and can often be found moving items around my house “just for fun”.  I love the transforming power of paint and I think knowing how to use a table saw is just as important as finding a killer pair of shoes.  I’m passionate about finding a great deal and I think our homes (and our shoes) should reflect who we are and what we love.

A perfect morning includes a cup of coffee and time spent laughing with my family.

This blog is where I will share my adventures turning our new house into a stylish yet affordable home.  I hope to inspire others and connect with those who are also enjoying the journey of making their spaces reflect what they love.
