DIY Project Gallery



  1. Hi, I was wondering if you have considered posting a “house tour” this feature is present on many personal DIY blogs and thought it might be a great addition to yours. Thanks!

    • I’d love to add a house tour, Joni. Right now I have four different types of flooring in my downstairs alone and it’s as open concept as it gets. That’s what stopping me. We’re planning to replace it all with hardwood floors hopefully after the holidays. Then I’ll be excited and proud to put together a tour :)

  4. Dear Christy,
    It is so generous of you to take the time to share your amazing ideas!! I just had my 1st Market in Sept. I am new to selling my furniture. I was wondering if you have any tips on keeping your work area organized. I mean your home looks spotless and I am struggling to manage the upkeep. My studio is in one half of my front room which is thankfully a very large room. Where do you do your projects and store your items? My goal is to keep a clean house in the process. I absolutely love being able to make my projects but I was hoping for helpful ideas to stay tidy. Any tips or like rules..etc. would be Greatly Appreciated!! Keep up the great job and many thanks!!

    • You are so sweet, Dawn thank you for the very kind words! My house is NOT spotless all the time, I promise. I do work on my projects in the garage as much as possible though. I try not to work on anything indoors since we put in our hardwood floors. That helps keep the work clutter contained, but I am a messy creative person…my garage gets so disorganized so fast. But one trick I found that really helps is to set my timer for 15 minutes, and do as much picking up and putting back as possible and I am always amazed at how much I can tidy up in 15 minutes! I bring my finished pieces into my dining room until I can drop them off at my shop. It’s a bit harder when you are saving up enough inventory for a show. Good luck! XO

      • That’s perfect! I shall use that 15 minute rule. I often set the timer on chores when I am pressed for time and am surprised what can be done in a short time especially because I am focused on a particular chore. Can’t thank you enough for taking the time to respond! Your work is Fabulous! Check out a few of my pieces of furniture if you would like . I’m on facebook at The Untamed Country. Thanks a bunch Christy!

        • Wow your pieces are so beautifully detailed! You an tell you put a lot of love into each one. We did shows for years long before my blogging days and it is a lot of work, but also so rewarding. You really do meet the nicest people! Good luck in December! :)

  5. I just went through your gallery looking for a past post (so happy you put all of your projects in one place because I often go back to check certain details and it makes it so much easier). I can’t believe how much you have accomplished over the years. I know you have two children and a husband, a beautiful home and big yard and still you find time for all your make-overs. You remind me of myself so many years ago (that is why you are my favorite blogger) and I don’t know what I did with my time before coming across your blog. THANK YOU for entertaining me all these years.

    • Oh you have totally made my day, Carole!! I am so glad you enjoy my thrifty adventures. It wasn’t always easy to balance it all, but having my youngest in school all day now really helps. Thanks so much for always leaving such sweet comments. I truly appreciate each and every one! XOXO
