I shared my tips for hanging a gallery wall and it’s not as hard as you may think. Plus it can be an inexpensive and fun solution for those hard to decorate walls.
Also my solution to add a desk to a small space – which also included a mini gallery wall.
My DIY shiplap command center has been a staple for our scheduling.
And this homemade bug repellant kept us bug-free all year. It’s easy to make, healthy and smells good too.
My talented niece contributed a post about fashion’s color of the moment – blush pink.
And I made this meaningful art from an old tattered flag.
My handpainted wood signs really took off and I started taking custom orders that continued throughout the holidays.
And I worked with SkinnyPop to create some delicious popcorn and cocktail pairings. It was a tough job but I stuck with it 😉
I was a guest participant in the One Room Challenge and gave our bedroom a makeover in 7 weeks. I shared a few DIY projects including a rustic wood headboard, distressed wood shelves, bedside table makeovers, and some fun store finds.
And I collaborated with HygroCotton and discovered some of the best towels I’ve ever used.
I did a final reveal of our bedroom and shared my lighting choices, artwork, and plants.
I also painted our interior doors a gunmetal gray.
I also shared a few holiday projects including these wooden name tags for our stockings, this faux fur wreath, this distressed wood & chalkboard advent calendar along with my Christmas art print collection.
Some other notes about 2017:
I found some great series including The Crown, Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad. De-stressing our lives became my focus and I’ll share some changes I hope to stick to. We helped our oldest apply to college, while watching all three of our kids really grow into young adults. We caved in and got a new pet (guinea pig) because our daughter is such an animal lover. My parents moved in to their beach house year round and we helped with the transition. I took a class on watercolor painting and tried to stay on top of the ever-changing – and frustrating – politics.
I hope your 2017 was memorable and here’s to a happy 2018!
