diyshowoff 2017 recap and highlights

Hello, friends! I’m joining my fellow bloggers in recapping favorite projects from 2017! For me, it was a light year when it comes to projects but that’s about to change! One of the most exciting things about 2017 is this…

I’m the proud owner of a new studio space!

I’m not sure what I’ve gotten myself into but 2018 will bring more before and after photos and room makeovers! Subscribe to be notified of updates and follow along on social media. Check out the before photos. Do you see the potential? I love it’s character and can’t wait to dive in!

Home Sweet Home

My favorite project from this past year was joining forces with a talented group of blog friends in the Color Lover’s Series and freshening up the dining room. What a fun partnership!

I loved reconstructing and repurposing an old bird bath we found hidden in the weeds on our property. It’s now

a fountain of flowers

What a treasure! Check out this beautiful cast iron flower fountain in all of her chippy glory! @diyshowoff

…or it was until winter hit western PA. So I’ll be doing some planting again in a few months. What a treasure! Check out this beautiful cast iron flower fountain in all of her chippy glory! @diyshowoff

…and then there was a before and after room makeoverFloorté, enhanced luxury vinyl plank floor by Shaw is a luxury line locking durable, waterproof flooring option and I am in LOVE!

It’s actually a play room now! This grandma’s house is beginning to look like a daycare center! So, it’s nice to have a spot to keep toys out of the way. I’ll get some new photos so you can see the update. It’s such a great space to play with the light from the windows and the warm durable Shaw flooring. And if I can commit, I’d love to perhaps bring in some more permanent storage solutions in 2018. Perhaps some cabinets or cupboards. Or more open shelving like the DIY pipe shelving in the pantry?  Beautiful Floorté plank flooring classico antico @diyshowoff #shawstyleboard

and I might have dropped the ball sharing a Christmas home tour but I did participate in hosting a festive fall home tour

Craft Time

This past year seemed to be more craft-related than home improvement as evidenced by my highlights. I love the opportunity to get creative every chance I get and enjoy sharing my projects with you!

And if you’re looking for something to motivate making healthier choices in the new year, I invite you to join me! When another blog buddy shared her essential oil with me, it raised an awareness and sparked a wellness journey … it took me by surprise but I’m SO grateful AND healthier because of it. I love when my sharing empowers others to make healthier choices too. 

If there’s one thing I really want you to read, it’s this! Because I’m super passionate about raising awareness for living a healthy lifestyle:

A healthier me!
