Start Here

Hi there! I’m Karin and Welcome to Renovated Faith!

  • Do you feel you uninspired or worry your home projects won’t turn out like you envision?
  • Are time and money obstacles to make your home décor ideas a reality?
  • Do you ever fear failure and want a little encouragement and help along the way?

I’ve found that SO many women struggle when it comes to finding inspiration to decorate and upgrade their homes.  And even when they find an idea they love, oftentimes the high cost or lack of a cohesive plan crushes their vision before it even gets off the ground. Not to mention the time it takes to research exactly how to make it happen.

I get it!  I know how it feels to spend too much time and money on a project that doesn’t look at all like you envisioned.

But Renovated Faith is here to help! 

This is a warm and welcoming environment where women can find inspiration and detailed tutorials to make your house into the home you’ve always wanted!

I show you ways to create for your home and heart, which includes DIY Décor, Home Improvement, and Furniture Refinishing while sharing Faith-Filled Encouragement along the way.

When Jeremy and I first got married, we found ourselves in a tiny home with an even smaller budget.  But those blank empty walls called out to me and I found ways to transform our house into a home without spending a fortune. 

Unexpectedly, I learned something amazing in the process…that the best transformation within those four walls was not just in my furniture projects or home décor hacks, but actually in myself!  

I realized God wants to transform us in the same way a curbside reject becomes a showroom-worthy furniture piece.  Whatever trial you are facing, He wants to transform it – oftentimes from a hot mess to a thing of beauty and purpose!

Before I knew it I was posting my projects online but what I thought would be a record of renovating my house is actually the details of how God is renovating me!

God never leaves a project half-done…He continually works on each one of us, as a lavish expression of His amazing grace.

That’s why each of Renovated Faith’s blog posts includes a step-by-step DIY tutorial with an encouraging devotional at the end. While Renovated Faith inspires and equips women to turn their house into a home, it also demonstrates how God offers hope to transform our hearts.
