I can not believe how fast this year has sped by… my boys have grown so much; I’ve had such fun building and crafting and blogging!
I started the year with a master bath makeover which I did during the New Year’s Eve weekend… (only 5 months pregnant at the time) seems like an eon ago and just yesterday all at once (isn’t that weird?)
Master Bath Makeover: my favorite mini remodel and the biggest bang for the buck of the year.
Then I tackled faux board and batten wainscoting with a cute little picture ledge and shaker pegs in what would become the new baby’s nursery.
A very popular post (which was a surprise): my pegboard book for tools.
Guess y’all like practical tool storage (me too ;)
Little Man was born on April 20. He’s been the best blessing of the year… can you believe he can stand by himself already at 8 months!
I want to make a dozen more of this tripod lamp – a personal favorite of mine!
I am still in love with my curtain headboard. I also love hearing from those of you who’ve done this in your home!
Another crazy popular one – Easy DIY Drawers. Since I made these I have bought the supplies for a dozen more, but haven’t had the time (yet – which is weird because it was a pretty quick project). I plan to build drawers like this in the garage and in my son’s bedroom (and maybe the playroom and under the kitchen sink too ;)
My Built-In Bookcase was a HUGE project that literally took months (working in 10 minute shifts ;)
It still has a small section of crown molding waiting to be nailed up, but it’s pretty close to done. I’ve added some lighting, and I want to build a library ladder and cabinet doors (I suppose I should share it’s current state with you… can you wait til next week?)
That was the tip of the iceberg (it’s been a busy year!!!), but there just isn’t time to list everything that I have so enjoyed making and sharing with you… sigh.
Finally, I want to give huge props to those ladies who’ve been the biggest source of traffic to my site. Whether it was a linky party, a feature, or a guest post I did – these gals have been more than friendly, supportive bloggers – they’ve been fantastic friends!
And last but not least – I truly appreciate all my followers- thanks for making this year so special!
