About Us

The Niche & Nail is a mobile DIY Workshop and rustic home decor company! What started as a passion and love of creating wood signs turned into a desire to share that love of creating with others! The Niche & Nail began in Twentynine Palms, CA and just recently expanded to Fort Lee, VA this past summer. We are ready for new beginnings and opportunities, while also very grateful for all that we built in the desert.

Jen is the creator and head crafter at The Niche & Nail, while also holding down the job titles of military wife, mother, employee and student.  She is working towards a Bachelors Degree in Small Business Management and Entrepreneurship in order to some day own a DIY workshop and rustic home decor business in San Antonio, TX.

Matt is a United States Marine, husband, father, student, and owner of True Grit Custom Apparel.  He is currently studying for his degree in Business Marketing.

Together we raise four beautiful children (13, 10, 3, 2). We thank and praise God every day for His bountiful blessings and, if it is His will, we will continue our businesses for many years to come!

Thank you for visiting our website! We can't wait to DREAM, PAINT, and CREATE with you!
