A blog based in Toronto, Canada which is mostly about DIY, decorating your home on a budget, making beautiful things and my life in downtown Toronto.
Hi. I am Meagan. That’s me down below with Nan. This picture is absolutely perfect – I am smothering her, attempting to get a nice shot of the two of us and she is looking like a zombie freak dog.
I am a stubborn lady who thinks I can figure out most things if I think about it long enough. Throw a little common sense in there, a little internet sleuthing, a little elbow grease and some patience – and the result is a know-it-all gal with a wealth of You Can Do It Yourself attitude.
I am constantly on the hunt for new ideas, old objects that deserve another life and in general, things that will make me happy. I am inspired by creative uses of objects, wood, anything from before 1955, the taste of good coffee, free spirits, dogs, turquoise, the countryside, a good story and lemon. I love the tang of a good lemon! Of late, I am obsessed with the outdoors more than ever before.
Previously based in Ireland, The Row House Nest was inspired by our quirky, perfectly formed Irish row house that lived in when I started the blog in 2010. What can I say? I was unemployed and had a lot of time on my hands – so starting a blog seemed like the natural solution. I relocated back to Toronto, Canada for work in August 2011 and am currently living the Canadian Dream again – working Monday to Friday, living for the weekends and my summers off! I daydream about camping and hiking a lot and have a serious problem with always looking at dogs for adoption (intrigued? Contact me! I love talking about dogs).
So that’s me. What about you?

I am a proud dog momma to Nan. She is absolutely the love of my life. For real.
Not convinced? Look at this awesome picture of her cruising around a trail on Fogo Island (Newfoundland) from the summer (August 2013). We are true partners in crime.
