Thanks for stopping by!

I’m Christa, and Stories of a House is my little web journal.

Here, I document  the projects that make our house a home, and how I make extra money by making old furniture new again. I throw in the occasional life-related post because I’m juggling a lot just like everyone else!

I absolutely love DIY. As a kid, I’d tag along with Dad on weekends as he fixed up the house in order to spend one-on-one time with him. One of my earliest memories is of him sanding and painting something, and I vividly remember thinking, “I can’t wait till I can sand and paint by myself.” I clean up okay, but I’m not a girly girl. I don’t like shopping for clothes; I’d rather shop for paint and tools and stuff for the house. My ideal day is to be in something that already has paint on it to match the paint in my hair – something my friends who see me everyday have come to accept as normal.

I love being Kevin’s wife and a mama to our 3 little women. My life, although far from perfect, is full of things I enjoy and people I love being with. I read each and every comment, and welcome yours.
