Pave The Way: a design blog by Shannon Pavey {Intro}

Hi all! I have decided to start a blog that focuses on two of my favorite things: design and special events. Over the years, my family and friends have told me that I should be a professional designer or wedding planner. I’ve planned and hosted many parties: baby & wedding showers, graduation parties, holiday dinners and the biggest event of all… my wedding!

I also have experience as a designer, specifically in new home construction where I built homes from the ground up (with help from an awesome team, of course!). However, my biggest design challenge yet has been my own home! My husband and I have completed many projects but the list never gets shorter. It actually gets longer because with every project we start, we discover more things we’d like to change. Like my father-in-law once said…

“Congratulations… you now own a home. You ALSO own a never ending project.”

What can I say… he was right. We have done everything from epoxying the garage floor to painting the exterior of the house and everything in between. We have done so much yet there are still a ton of projects on our list. Oh, the joy of homeownership!

Another reason for starting this blog is that I’ve realized many of my friends are reaching a common place in life. They’re buying homes and tackling projects of their own. I get asked “how did you…” pretty often and this blog will feature some of those topics. Also, please feel free to ask questions about a project you’re working on!

2013 is shaping up to be a productive year… follow along and enjoy!
