Why Hello!

Welcome to Grey Stables, our journey through a house, a marriage and a life that is always unexpected! My husband, Allen, and I have been married for two years and we live in Stonegate Cottage, a tiny cape cod in the Midwest. The hubs works for a not-for-profit, we run our ballroom dance studio in the evenings, on Saturdays I work with my very fabulous friend's photography business (she's a-maz-ing... that's right, I said it) and I keep a small Etsy shop (Reclaim the Throne) with re-upholstered vintage furniture on the side.

We are do-it-yourself-ers at heart and are constantly re-designing our tiny cottage with clever solutions on a threadbare budget.   I'm so excited to bring you along our journey as we remake our home, show you tons of before and afters, tips, tutorials and inspiration!


  1. What an exciting new blog! I love Reclaim the Throne and I'm so glad that I can now follow all of Christyn's other projects at Grey Stables!

  2. Wow I love how much you've blogged already what with just starting out - keep up the good work!!


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
