I design and build modern living solutions for clients, but can also fix a wonky kitchen door in 30 seconds and transform an old chair with instant style – and I can show you how too.
My first ever memory is of playing in the woodchips of my dad’s workshop. As a kid I used a mini hammer to make stuff out of timber offcuts. As a grown-up I have a workshop full of tools and a headful of handy knowledge to share.
But am I qualified to work those power tools? For sure! From my Little Red Industries HQ in Sydney's Inner West, I design and build bespoke furniture, host DIY classes and create how-to content for media. You can see for yourself on Instagram.
I recently art directed and styled a series of DIY videos with White Knight Paints, launched Renovating with Cherie Barber
e-zine and hosted a DIY workshop with Work-Shop.
As craft presenter on The Living Room Series 1 I teamed up with master builder and TV personality Barry DuBois to whip up practical projects.
As the former editor of Australian Handyman magazine I helped readers tackle that never-ending weekend to-do list and inspired radio listeners to roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty.
I've shared commentary about renovating, upcycling and my journey from editor to maker with Jetstar, Winkelen, Smith Journal and Renovate magazines, and online journal The Bonafide Bedfellows.
My Little Red Industries creations and step-by-step projects have starred in Homes+, Inside Out, Real Living, Square Rooms and Gardening Australia magazines, online with Reno Addict, Bondville, Recycled Interiors and shoplove.com.au, and made a guest appearance on @hbcreativecollection for Home Beautiful.
So whether it's a full-on renovation, painting a room, restoring furniture or doing repairs around the house, I'm here to inspire you with great design ideas, show you which products and tools to use, and give you the confidence to get handy.
Let’s DIY together!
