One Year Houseiversary

I'm sure you're sick of hearing about it but today is officially our one year houseiversary!

This time last year my boyfriend, his brother and I were in the process of figuring out how to Tetris all of the belongings from our condo + everything in our full storage unit into a 17' U-Haul which is surprisingly smaller than it sounds. We got 90% of it to our new house in one trip and only had to make a few more trips by car to get the remaining fragile things like our TV, large artwork, and our dogs.

Anyway, during our 6th monthiversary, I included a round up of 6 of my favorite posts/projects – one from each month. I thought I'd add 6 more projects to that list to celebrate the first year of projects in our new (now old, I suppose) house :)

Month 1 //
The EAT sign in our kitchen

Month 2 //
My DIY campaign style desk

Month 3 //
My HomeGoods console table makeover

My DIY'd string globe pendants were a close second :)

Month 4 //
My DIY'd $15 chunky wooden floating shelves AKA my most popular post ever!

Month 5 //
My DIY'd $18 console table

Month 6 //
My dollar store dinnerware

Month 7 //
My Gold Leaf Agate Slice Coasters

Month 8 //
My $8 Faux Malachite Boxes

Month 9 //
The trunk coffee table we made out of a shady Craigslist find

Month 10 //
Our front patio updates

Month 11 //
Our updated staircase landing

Month 12 //
When I won #DBStar

Happy anniversary house! We're so happy to call you home :D
