Last month you met Melissa and saw her awesome industrial boy bedroom. This month we are happy to introduce you to Stacey McDevitt, owner of Ramshackled Treasures and show you all the fun projects she has recently tackled in her Zimmerman home.
Stacey is a fun-loving and energetic wife and mother of three with a passion for repurposing and design. She grew up on Lake Minnetonka and as an adult dreamed of living on a lake once again. After she and her husband, Dean, had their second daughter, they found a small home for sale on Elk Lake in Zimmerman. They sold their home in Saint Louis Park and moved to Zimmerman in the the fall 1998.
"I am a very involved person and the first year I moved here I started a Mom's Club for stay at home moms. Met many women that way and then once we found a church I participated in their weekly bible study." Stacey explained when asked how she went about establishing community after moving and if she had any advice for young mother's who may feel isolated in their communities.
"I was very involved with both until [buying] Ramshackled Treasures. Once I had the shop, I reached out to the other women business owners to start Ladies on the Loose. So, I am more of a starter. That might not be a comfort for some. So I recommend women seek to find clubs or groups that fit their interest and if they don't find one then start their own!"
Stacey's Living Room Refresh
Stacey's home used to be a cabin that belonged to the Ridgewood Bay Resort in the '60's and was later sold as a residential property. It has undergone several renovations and add-ons in the decades since. Stacey loves the view from her french doors in her living room which looks out into their private family island that connects to their backyard by a bridge.
