About The HomeyBee

I’m Melissa Ahrens, and I’m a crazy cat lady.  But that’s not what this blog is about.  This is about my second passion, creating beautiful spaces and items to fill those spaces.  My dream is to have a beautiful home perfectly curated by a pricey designer, but I’m not at that stage in my life.  Who knows if I ever will be, the future is only so certain.  So, in the meantime, I focus on creating what I can with what I have available to me.  If you love DIY and bargain hunting, then this is the place for you.  Although, disclaimer, I live about 15 minutes from an outlet mall where I can get Pottery Barn and West Elm furniture for a fraction of the price (it’s ok to feel a little envy sometimes).  My husband and I have lived in our home for 3.5 years now, and have done a variety of projects ranging from cabinetry to masonry to landscaping.  You don’t have to be a millionaire to have your home be beautiful as long as you’re willing to put in a little elbow grease and wait for the big sales.  I hope you enjoy my content and if you have any questions or comments, please, contact me!
