GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD)- April is coming to a close, and it’s hard to believe we’re already heading into May. Although time seems to be flying by, many of us can’t help but get excited! We’re entering a fun time of year where the weather feels nice, and we’re spending more time outdoors, which gives those wanting to take on home renovation projects, the perfect opportunity to spruce up their space!

When it comes to breathing new life into a home, Rachael Ruiz is practically an expert! During a recent episode of eightWest backstage, Rachael joins Morgan Poole to share previous renovation projects that she and her husband Ryer have taken on! She also gives viewers a glimpse at her newest project–restoring a recently purchased Boston Whaler Montauk!
