Welcome to Seaside Shelter!
I'm Dani— seasoned DIY-er, professional yard-saler, and color chameleon.
I don't always pursue junk, but it often pursues me. Like a siren, an

living space. I believe that your home is your sanctuary and it should
be filled with things you love—items that are valuable not in the

I love feedback and creative input. Feel free to email me anytime with questions, comments or ideas!
