Hey y’all – We are Morgan & Sean McBride and we are crafting our first home together in Charleston, South Carolina.
We blog here at Charleston Crafted to share with you our experiences on transforming our first home into our dream home. We’re also empowering you to try DIY by showing you easy ways to make a huge impact in your home.
We have a beautiful young son named Luke, a beagle named CiCi Sabathia, and a fluffy grey cat named Bear Grylls.
From 2012 to 2016, we lived in a two bedroom condo. We started this blog in 2012 to share the projects that we worked on while decorating and living in that condo. You can see the whole condo tour here. It was a hobby and we really found our passion.
In July of 2016, we sold our condo (for a huge profit!) and bought our first house. It was a bit of a fixer in that the bones were great, but we wanted to take down a few walls and in general bring the home into this decade and our style with DIY projects and design. We turned this blog into a business featuring these projects and bringing them to you.
Our biggest single remodel is definitely our DIY Coastal Kitchen. We did so many projects in our kitchen and completely transformed it.
We try to give you easy ways to make a big impact on your home, like extending your fireplace or swapping out balusters. But we also share bigger projects, like whole room makeovers such as our laundry room or our nursery, or building projects, like our kitchen table, our coffee table, wooden lanterns or midcentury modern side tables.
Crafting our first home into our dream home is our passion
We are so excited to not only share that journey with you but also to help others living in your first homes to craft them into your dream home.
Before we started on our DIY journey, we had no idea what we were doing. We both have desk jobs and have learned as we go and are continuing to learn every day. We have no background in construction or decorating or anything like that.
We continue to evolve as DIYers and we are here to show you that crafting your first home doesn’t have to be difficult, scary, or expensive. We love sharing advice as well as projects going on in our own home and we hope that you will enjoy following along.
Want to work with us? Here’s how! We’ve worked with dozens of our favorite brands, including The Home Depot, Kreg Tool, Gearheart Industry, HomeRight, CedarSafe, Woodgrain Millwork, and many many more.
