I’m Christina Spragins. Wife to Joey, mother to Lucas, lover of all things coffee, and total DIY junkie.
And this is my outlet. My place for for getting all it out so that I don’t incessantly chatter about the home-related projects that consume my mind. Which I did. A lot. In fact, DIY (ahem… cheap/inexpensive/budget-friendly DIY) was all I wanted to talk about for a time there. So, I decided to create this spot for sharing my DIY successes, failures, and everything in between.
When I started Operation Home, we were in the midst of making our new construction home feel more like us. We strived to add character and personality to the previously beige walls on a major budget. (You can check out the transformation in our House Tour.)
But alas, old passions run deep. Prior to buying our new construction home, we’d wanted an older house in a more established area. Something with character and history. Unfortunately, the market was so competitive at the time that we weren’t able to fill that dream. So, this year, we started house-hunting again… and after nine months of searching, we found this sweet 1970’s home in our very favorite neighborhood.
Here’s a before shot on the day we closed….
The potential in this place was enough to make a grown man weep!! (ormaybethatsjustme) So, stay tuned… I’m so incredibly excited to take on this new DIY adventure and would love for you all to follow along with me.

So anyways, welcome to Operation Home! I hope you enjoy the ride! I know I will! 🙂
