The Man Behind House of Earnest

What can I say about Erin and House of Earnest? How about this — a few weeks ago, I was chatting with another blogger about the amazingness that is Erin’s blog, and I think I said something like, “Her DIYs! All the original photography and content! I don’t know HOW she comes up with this stuff, let alone has the time to do it all while working full time.” In short, Erin’s talents will blow you away (I’ve featured her on Friday’s Link of the Week countless times).

But Erin has a little trick up her sleeve in the form of her husband Matt. According to Erin, he’s the unsung hero of many of her awe-inspiring home projects (their big bedroom built-in shelving project comes to mind). I loved reading Matt’s responses to the MBTB questions, and learning more about the guy behind House of Earnest!
