What students are saying




I bought the Beginner Basics course last spring as a birthday gift to myself. Fast forward 4 months and I finally had the courage to start. Christine’s lessons are so well laid out and simple to understand that anyone, including this 56 year old, can pick up a power tool and feel confident using it. I love that I can go back and review specific lessons over and over when needed. I haven’t finished the course yet because I was so excited to start my first project. I built my new workbench all by myself. Hubby was told specifically that he was not allowed to help. Ok, he held a few boards in place, but I did all the hard stuff. ;) I am so proud of myself and can’t wait to finish the rest of the lessons. I’m already thinking about purchasing the Kitchen and Bath Basics course. Thank you Christine!

I bought both of Christine’s courses and I love them! They were my go to for learning the proper way to paint & stain wood and figure out what wood to buy at the store as well as how to tile my kitchen floor. I’m so glad for everything Christine has taught.

I love these courses!

- L E

I loved how everything was in one place! It was broken down into different categories, which then has videos to go along with each tool or task and links of the tools or materials needed. My husband would say I am the least crafty person but I’m so glad I took the leap of faith and just started! Since completely redoing our half bath it gave me the DYI bug! DYI remodel/projects have been so fun and given me a hobby!

Gave me courage to start!

After we moved into an older house, I realized how many projects I was going to be able to tackle alone. This course helped me from the planning, shopping, and executing. It’s like having the helpful dad or experienced person at the hardware store right there in your pocket. I highly recommend!!

Exactly the push I needed

- Devinee M.

After going through the course videos, I almost instantly felt more confident. I started created mood boards to get going on projects! I love how Christine explains everything you need to know for the projects I wanted to create my home!

Gained so much confidence!!

I can’t say enough about this course! I knew nothing when I purchased the course and within a year completed so many amazing projects. Completely renovated my pantry and laundry room. I would have never had the confidence to even start if it weren’t for this course!

Best course for beginners

- Nikki S.

I didn't know if I should buy this course, since there are quite a few things I knew. We have all the tools, since my husband did carpentry with his dad. He hates it by the way! I'm intrigued. I learned in 2010 how to lay flooring. I've since then laid laminate flooring in 5 bedrooms. Tiled our shower. Our bathroom floors, etc. But I want to learn to build things. Cabinets, furniture, etc... and even with doing all those things, this course still had stuff that I didn't know or even a different approach.

So Helpful

- s

Nothing big here but I cut some boards with the big scary chop saw and I did not faint from fear! I put together a picnic table using a leg "kit" and it turned out great! Now I have a tiny bit of confidence we will see whats next! The videos really helped me have confidence in power tool use.

Didn't Faint!

- Riley

If you want to get into DIY this class is perfect. It has such knowledge and experience. It’s like having a best friend who knows everything in your pocket. The videos are super helpful and I love that I c an pause and rewatch as many times as I need. With what I learned I was able to design and build banquet seating for my kitchen dining area all on my own.

Super Helpful DIY Companion

- S B

I absolutely LOVE this course. I am not new to DIY, but I have learned so much from this program. I feel more confident in what I am doing, and I love that I can always go back and rewatch something if I am not sure just how to do it. It has been such a great resource for my DIY journey. SO worth the price, when you you can save so much money doing things yourself. Can’t wait to start my next project!!

Great Purchase!

-Kelsey Miller

Christine does an amazing job in this course. Her program is broken up into lots of short segments which is great when you need to refer back to something. She starts very basic-like navigating the hardware store so you can go in with confidence. I treasure this course and am so grateful I took it!

Amazing confidence builder

I had completed a few DIY projects before starting this course, but I had never created anything I was very proud of. I purchased this course in hopes of finding some tips that would improve my skills but it has done so much more than that. After watching the videos, I felt more confident walking in to hardware stores, I wasn’t scared to step out of my comfort zone, and I was finally proud of what I was creating. I purchased the course about 2 years ago and I still refer to the videos often! If you are considering any projects in your home, I cannot recommend this course enough! Thank you Christine!   - AJ_Redesigns

Worth Every Penny!

-Sammie Ernisse

But seriously?! 🤣 I can talk for HOURS about how big of an impact this course has had on me! Not only did I feel motivated from the moment I started watching But I also instantly began to learn SO much. What’s even better is a year and a half later I can still go back and rewatch those videos! With every new project and skill that I am learning along the way, I am so thankful to have this course to revert back to. Whether you are brand new and needing to learn the basics of tools, or diving deeper into building walls… This course is for YOU! And I’d also like to mention that not only is the course absolutely amazing and life-changing, but the community that you get with it is just as powerful. ❤️🙌🏼 beyond thank for Christine in being such a core memory to my design journey!

What are you waiting for?

- Shelley

This course has been a lifesaver for me to tackle projects in our basement renovation. While I had some skills when I bought this course, it because what I constantly go back and refer to when I am trying to figure out what paint to use, or what tool to use or the tips and tricks that Christine shares throughout this course. It is so worth the money and will become your constant resource! I have also bought the kitchen and bath course but haven't gone through it yet as we haven't demo'd the bathroom yet, but it is coming! Christine is such an amazing resource, I purchase all of her resources and can't wait for her app to come out as well!

Excellent course!

- J R

So so so glad I invested in this class. It gave me the fundamentals to feel confident to DIY. I had really only used a drill prior to this and in the year after I took the course I can't believe how much I've done and how much money I saved by doing it myself. So empowering!

Just do it!

- Amanda Jarman

I recently bought a home and have been dying to build my skills at home improvement but I didn't know where to begin. This course has not only given me the knowledge I need but the confidence to tackle projects that would seem overwhelming. The videos give step-by-step instructions and advice that I can easily understand and follow. I would highly recommend to anyone whether they're at a beginner or intermediate level. Just go for it, you won't regret it!!

Go for it, you won't regret it!!

-Julie Carmona

To say Christine changed my life is an understatement! 🤣 Seriously this course taught me sooooo much! Basic power tool use, what is what 🙃 and what they’re for. Basics on painting, staining, wood filler, caulking etc. Everything you need to know to get started and how to start. My favorite part was when she takes you shopping to home depot and goes over where things are and what’s what!! Home Depot used to be so intimidating! Since starting the course I have been on a roll and can’t believe what I’ve accomplished! Thanks to Christine you can too! Here is a picture of my first project board and batten! 😍 I can’t recommend her course enough you won’t regret it!!          - Juliecarmonahome 🏡

Life changing!!!

- Vicky

Christine’s course gave me the confidence to use power tools to build this bed for my nephew! She did an amazing job in explaining things in a way that made it simple enough for me to learn! (Not an easy task for a newbie like me lol) I highly recommend! She also has an app now which makes it even easier to navigate her through her videos.

Built a Bed!

- Julie Heppner

I've really enjoyed working through this course. It's been helpful learning more about tools that I haven't used before. I redid my laundry room with my new-found skills!

Great Videos!

- Shelley

So much in this course. I've watched videos over and over. Will be starting my kitchen pantry cabinets this week. The only thing that I was hesitant on were building doors & drawers. I have built several basic boxes and have put shelves inside for storage or book shelves. But I want pull out drawers and her tutorials are giving me the confidence I need.

Love this course!

- Jill Williams

I’m in the middle of demoing the first floor of my home for a remodel. I’ve been watching videos in this course so that I’ll know how to do ALL the things when I start reconstructing the bathrooms and kitchen. The information Christine shares in these videos is so helpful! I can’t wait to get started on my projects and apply what I’m learning.

So Great!
