Hello there friends of Roeshel! My name is Corinna and I’m the blogger behind For My Love Of. I love my home, and the process of making it a beautifully decorated home. For the past 2 years I’ve been learning and sharing different DIY home improvement and decor techniques on my blog. It’s a fun journey and I’m hoping it encourages others to take passion in their homes too. My most recent obsession in home decor is leather, so I’m pretty excited to be sharing today’s post with you- 16 Fabulous DIY Leather Tutorials for The Home!
