Hi, I’m Melanie!

but my friends call me Mel

Home is where life is both lived and recovered from. It’s an oasis to refresh your family as well as your friends. But creating that space shouldn’t break the bank.

After spending 12 years a pastor’s wife, while raising 3 boys at home, I’ve found creative ways to stretch our decorating dollars and to tackle DIY home projects.

I have 9 years of experience teaching others how to paint furniture, and I LOVE rusty, crusty vintage decor. Mix that in with my passion for creative small business, and you get what has become, Lost & Found.

Let’s create our beautiful homes together!
