    I just love your blog. I don’t know how you find the time to do all you do!! I’m going to tackle the outdoor cushions later this Fall. Thanks so much!!!

    • Thank you, Suzanne! I hope the cushion tutorial is helpful, it’s pretty easy to follow. Honestly, I don’t know how I get so much done either, it sure would be nice to hire an assistant. Do you think my husband would go for that ha ha?! Thanks so much for following along and taking the time to leave such a sweet comment! 🙂

    It’s great to see what can be done to revive and give a new life to old pieces of furniture, decoration items, etc. What terrific ideas and everything looks sooo nice! Thanks for sharing and allowing others to follow along with the tutorials and also to enjoy the “before and after” pics – a real pleasure for the eyes and imagination. You’ve got some talent! Keep it up. Kathy from Geneva, Switzerland

    It is time I told you how much I enjoy your blog! I check in often. I will be taking your advice on the stripes, and follow your way of doing the corners soon on my patio cushions. I like all your projects. I want to do a fairy garden, I have two sons 7 and 8 years old. I am brainstorming now about a more masculine vibe for mine. It may have the charm of yours with some army men stuck in the midst. 😉 Thanks so much for sharing your talent.

    • Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me such a sweet comment, Michelle! I’m glad you have found some projects here that you like! Our fairy garden is looking a bit sad at the moment since it’s the dead of winter lol. My eleven year old son got a big kick out of it even though it was a but girly! The army men will surely help toughen it up 🙂 I hope you continue to come back and visit often! XO

  6. Hi Christy

    Big fan!

    I was going old school today and checking out some of your older posts when I came across

    Great post!
    In fact, I liked it so much I decided to share it with my audience in my own little list

    Anyway just wanted to reach out and say hello. Keep up the great work!

  8. Hi Christy – your blog is my go-to for awesome ideas … I love your style. So many great pieces and inspiration. I scored some free fence panels recently and attempting signs … struggling with lettering smearing after dry. I’ve been using carbon paper to transfer the image onto the wood which works great for me and using Sharpie paint pens to fill in letters. Can you think why the Sharpie would be smearing. Very light chalk type paint underneath. Just can’t figure it out and getting frustrated.

    • Thank you, Cheryl!! I haven’t tried Sharpies for the lettering myself, so I checked with a blogger friend who has and she uses oil-based sharpies. Also be sure to use a fine grit sandpaper like 220 or 320 grit and use a very light hand. That helps when I use paint. Hope this helps! XOXO
