We tend to look at all we didn’t accomplish, every thing still taking up space on the to-do list but this time of the year is a great time to count blessings and recap accomplishments.
Here’s a look back with links to my favorite DIY from 2014 BIG and small…
My first project of 2014 was an open pantry reveal with tips for making DIY pipe shelving. I still love this space. There’s also a tutorial for the easy painted accent wall that is often mistaken for pretty wallpaper.
This next space ties the open pantry as one of my most favorite in 2014. I just love the fresh new look (of course if you check out the ‘before’ photos, you know why!) bathroom before and after makeover…

I plan on having more overnight guests in 2015. Check out the Guest Room/Nursery Reveal…
My craft room tour and DIY window shelves. I’m considering moving this space in 2015. Ambitious plan. lol We’ll see!
I gave my sister’s back door/entry area a fresh and fun new look for her birthday:

And finally, my holiday home tour.
First project of 2015 will be putting away the Christmas decorations. I don’t like doing it but it sure feels good when everything is put away. So fresh and decluttered. Other plans for 2015: a master bedroom and bathroom makeover, a shower in the guest bathroom, the start of a basement makeover (huge project) and giving a helping hand to my mom’s new fixer upper. I suspect that because of this cutie (my new grandson, Aaro),
that you’ll be seeing lots of baby-related DIY projects as well as a handful of arrow-inspired ideas too!
How about you? Have any plans for the new year? Something new? Something fun? Something DIY?
