Start Here

Hi, friend! Welcome to The Inspired Hive! If this is your first time visiting, this is a great place to start!

First, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Nicole, and this my space to share creative ideas from my home and family. I’m all about DIY projects, budget friendly makeovers, and useful crafts. To read more details about my self, my family, and why I started blogging, click here.

While you're browsing around the blog, you may notice that some older posts and photos say “Meet the B’s.” Don’t be confused! You’re still in the right place! My blog was rebranded from “Meet the B’s” to “The Inspired Hive” in 2016. Find out why we made such a big change here.

Want a little peek at what types of projects I love to share? Here’s a list of our top ten most popular projects:






I would describe my decorating style as “industrial farmhouse” or “rustic industrial,” so you’ll find lots of projects similar to these DIY spice racks.

Every month I participate in the Monthly DIY Challenge with my friends. You can read more about the challenge and see our latest challenge items here. My favorite challenge project ever is this wood slice wall art.

I also am a new momma, so I love to craft things that make mom life easier, like these super easy DIY teething necklaces.

Although this isn’t a wedding blog, my husband and I had a vintage garden wedding with lots of DIY wedding ideas, like these pretty decorative bird houses.
