Carrie Garner's collection of home DIY projects

Carrie Garner's collection of home DIY projects

This week, I'm hoping to feature your DIY projects. I've gotten a few emails that I'll separate into a few different posts.

If you have a DIY project, be it furniture or a deck or even an excellent recipe, email me a couple of paragraphs and a photo. I'd love to feature it.

Today's DIY projects come from Champaign resident Carrie Garner.

"Since we bought our house last year, we've done a lot of DIY, since paying someone else to do it is out of the question," she wrote me. "Here are several of the bigger projects we've taken on, complete with pictures."

Carrie, who writes the blog The Fabulous Follies of a Freaky Family, has tackled things like a new deck, a cool patio table and a totally renovated bathroom.

I love her creativity - I'd never thought about making my own patio table or benches, but it's a great idea.

Thanks for sharing, Carrie!
