Today is the 2 year anniversary of the DIY Show Off!
HURRAY! LET’S CELEBRATE!
Two years ago today, I wrote my first DIY Show Off blog post and it’s been a happy part of my life ever since! I want to thank you. Thank you for stopping by. Thank you for coming back! Thank you for your support. Thank you for leaving comments and making blogging such a fun experience. I work from home as well so it’s often that I’m checking emails or taking a break from work to see if there’s a comment or feedback. YOU make me smile. You give me confidence and reassurance. You’re so sweet and I cherish our blog friendship. I’m happy to “e-know” you. I love seeing your DIY projects, reading about your lives, your experiences, your family and things that make you happy. I love that your creativity inspires me to blog about our shared DIY passion.
As you know we’re redoing our kitchen (yes…since last fall and hoping to wrap it up here within the month!). I purchased this book and love all of the beautiful ideas…
Country Living 500 Kitchen Ideas:
Style, Function & Charm
and bought one for a THANK YOU giveaway too.
Country Living steps into the kitchen with 500 new and exciting ways to transform the heart of the home. Packed with winning photographs of warm and inviting rooms, this inspiring guide covers color and pattern, floors and walls, storage, appliances, sinks, work surfaces, windows and lighting, and other charming accessories. A stunning image accompanies every tip: see how a small kitchen becomes cozy when it’s filled with warm tones and natural materials; how a checkerboard backsplash brings black cabinets and white walls together; and how a modern refrigerator can work in a retro room—if it’s hidden by a rustic door. Mix surface styles, add an archway to create a separate eating area, and turn an antique cabinet into an attractive place to store and display dishware. There’s an innovative idea on every page…and a design solution for every kitchen.
a surprise gift. Once I talk to the winner about their next DIY project and their style, I’ll personally select something small and special for the winner for their home.
Just leave a comment about anything and you’re entered to win. If you’re not a subscriber or follower, I invite you to follow along for a bit and to celebrate DIY with some amazing friends.
It’s not much. I wish I could give something to each one of my blog friends or that we could meet personally and I could look you in the eye and tell you face to face of my gratitude and admiration (maybe even pick up a paint brush and give you a hand with your DIY), but until that day arrives…just know that I want tell “you”…thank YOU for being You and for being so supportive of me. I look forward to another awesome year of growing, new ideas, sharing our DIY, your DIY and making new friends!

Congrats! I have loved checking in on your blog, many more years to come! Not sure if you have seen ours lately, we got hit by a tornado Sunday, no more DIY-ing for us for quite a while 🙁 just want things to be normal again. Anyway, reading up on my blogs is making me smile today 🙂
Happy Anniversary. Love your blog and your tips. Can't wait to see what the next year has in store.
Congratulations on two great years!
so much to say, congratulations, great giveaway and of course I follow… I've learned a great deal.
Not only are you a daily inspiration but you are a lovely, lovely person! Happy Anniversary and I am so glad to be a follower of the DIY Showoff!
I've been away because my computer went bust, so have been desperately trying to catch up. There's a reason you've lasted 2 years and will last many more. You are one of the few blogs I've subscribed to and stayed with. Each day is like a new "featured article" for me. I've gotten many wonderful ideas from you and envy your energy and imagination. I have a kitchen that is essentially the same as it was when built in 1947. It definitely needs an infusion of new ideas (and cash flow) ;^)
Happy Anniversary! Thanks for a great giveaway.

Thanks for bringing beauty to my cubical filled work day! Dreaming about after work & weekend projects is the best way to get through a long work day!
Right now we are in the process of selling our home.It's strange as we really can't DYI anything ( well I guess we could but there isn't much point)Originally we planned to redo our kitchen, but realized bathrooms need renovation too, flooring too ( don't buy a house with white tile or more correctly white grout- Many many sq. feet of white tile & groute-specially if you have kids & pets & like your knees & back to move without pain)We don't like our yard – This part isn't fixable(at a realistic price anyway) & I don't really like our neibourhood.
I'm so looking forward to a new home – sure it'll have it's own issues , but I hope they'll be fewer than where we are now- Come on and sell house!
I'm a follower!! My next project will be our turntable stand. We have wanted to purchase a vinyl player for so long and we finally did! Vinyls are defiantly making a come-back! So we made a point to go bye a stand, we thought many times about building one but we are not that good at building things. So our first stop was Goodwill, and we found a vintage stand WITH storage for $5.00, we could not believe we found one and it great shape. So that is my next project and I hope I win!! Thank you!!
I am so happy for you that this is your 2nd anniversary. It also happens to be my birthday. yippy! I love your blog, I am a subscriber, so I love seeing the updates everyday w/ new things to look at. Thanks for starting your blog, I now have so many ideas for my own DIY projects !
well, today is double fun! My birthday and your anniversary! congratulations…

Your blog has been such an inspiration to me. I am so thankful that you take the time to post so many great ideas. I have been able to use many of your ideas or either ideas from your DIY showoff. I am a little jealous at time because we are renting a house right now and we can't do any painting and I would love to do some updating and fixing up of my own.
