KristyWags_TheArtesianProjectHi!  I’m Kristy, a mom to two sweet boys and a Border Collie and lover of all things house.

I am a native Chicagoan – grew up in the burbs and now live in West Bucktown with my husband, two sons, and pup.

I started this blog to document the fun (and stress) of building our house in the West Bucktown a few years ago and now continue share tips and tours of our home and other projects I am working on.

I have been into design as long as I can remember – I always had more fun designing Barbie’s dream house rather than playing with it – and am excited to keep the passion alive by helping friends and clients.  I love floor plans, space planning, selecting finishes, and construction sites.

And apologies in advance – I apparently think I am a lot funnier than I actually am (thanks, Matt!).

Enjoy and thanks for visiting!

  1. I see in one of your posts, you mixed Provincial color Wood Stain with Pickled Oak Woods stain to get that awesome Brown-gray color for wood. Did you use the Pickled oak first or Provincial. Also, do you remember the ratio of each. The color is gorgeous!
    Thank you in advance!!!

    1. Hi Chelly,
      It was a 50/50 mix of Provincial and Pickled Oak – they were mixed together before applying to the floors. Please let me know if you have any other questions! Thanks!!
