Best of 2014: DIY Projects

December 19, 2014

In keeping with the "best of" theme, I thought it'd be fun to take a look back at some of my favorite DIY projects from 2014!


My Home Alone inspired doormat is only a couple of weeks old but I'm still counting it as one of my favorite projects from this year!

Those crisp stencil lines make my heart pitter patter! I love the doormat so much, I may keep it outside all year long...


Our DIY staggered wainscoting was one of the most challenging projects we tackled this year so it should come as no surprise that it made the list.

The blood, sweat, and tears we put into that wall helped transformed our loft into one of our favorite spaces to hang out :)


The DIY agate slice wall hooks I made back in May are one of my favorite agate slice projects of 2014.

We hung the hooks in our foyer to hold our keys, our guest's jackets, and the occasional bag of items we need to take upstairs.

Well, that's it for me for 2014!

I'll be taking next week off to celebrate the holidays and do a little wedding planning (must. find. money. tree.). I'll be back on the 31st with December's recap.

Also, without getting too mushy, I want to say thank you to each and every one of you for making 2014 a great year of blogging for me! Your readership means so much to me – virtual hugs (or handshakes, if you're not a hugger) for everyone! I hope you and yours have a Happy Holiday and a fabulous New Year! :)

Best of 2014: Before & Afters

December 17, 2014

We worked on a lot of rooms in our house this year. None of them are actually finished (is a room ever "finished"?) but I thought it'd be fun to take a look back at some of my favorite before and after makeovers that happened:


Let's start with our living room, specifically the gallery wall around our TV.

The room looked a little something like this a few months after we moved in back in 2012.

Here's what it looks like now, a little over 2 years later (minus the rug and coffee table which have both been updated since this photo was taken):

We'll be making a few more changes to it in the new year!
