Hey Mamas'

Let me introduce myself, I'm Mel. I'm a 40 something year old mama, creating, living, and rebuilding. I'm the creative behind 8 by design. My little dream born after having my 6th baby in 2013. I decided to channel my energy painting furniture and that turned into creating in all sorts of ways for the last 10 years. 

I opened a shop in 2014 that catered to my local community and man did I love that little shop!! In 2020, I chose to move my business online and I have been DIY'ing, creating, and teaching ever since. 

8 by design has gone from a furniture painting business into a full blown brand. I focus on lifestyle creating, empowering the women around me, and continuing to grow my business in new ways.
