I'm back today with a recap of projects from the past few months. I like to do this every so often (I used to do it every month but you know how well that goes) to share what I've been up to in case you missed something. Can't have that.
I'm picking my favorites from February, March and April to share with you today. Enjoy!
This Disney pin art is seriously one of my favorites ever:
It's still holding up great -- I LOVE it. See how we created it at the link above.
Our guest room has undergone some changes over the past year and it's so close to done. I changed up the color of the accent wall, added some new nightstands and showed you the new art in the room (it's adorable):
Our master is almost done too. Earlier this year I finished the painting, added new bedding and then made new pillows for the bed:
I adore this room -- it's so soothing and pretty but the darker accent wall gives it some drama. (Still need to finish those nightstands!)
One of my favorite redos I think I've ever done was my son's nautical bathroom. The difference paint made was truly astounding:
You have to see the yellow before to really get a good idea. Plus the new daylight bulbs make a HUGE difference in here.
I shared my top five decorating essentials and how I use them throughout the house:
I had to laugh when I wrote that because I do really stick to a lot of the same items, just different versions of them. They work!
I finally finished up the upper cabinet lighting in the kitchen and shared the tutorial for that and under cabinet lighting:
This is such an easy project -- I promise! It looks difficult but it's not. I share all the items we used with links to everything in that post.
We got the news recently that there's an IKEA coming to Indiana (WHOOT). There are a few staples from that store that I love that cost less than $10:
I use most of them every day and they've all held up great. And you can't beat the price!
I went a little off topic when I joined in with some friends to share my favorite makeup:
I use that Gimme Brow all the time -- love it! This was a fun post for this DIY girl. :)
I've always wanted a blanket ladder and you'll never believe what this one used to be:
I love reusing something that was headed for the trash!
I have been purging our house for months now and I'm thisclose to done! I've shared how I organize some of our closets, including the linen closet:
And the coat closet:
As well as one of my favorites in the house -- our cubby toy storage:
I've been following the Konmari method and it's truly changed my life. I'm not kidding, it has rocked my world. Our house is cleaner and more organized than ever.
In April it had been 12 years since we built and moved in to our home -- another milestone because before that the longest I ever stayed in once place was four years and that was a long time for me. I'm so in love with our home and feel so fortunate to live here. I shared the before and after photos of the rooms in our house to celebrate and one of my favorite transformations is our living room:
Again, you really have to see the before to see how far it's come. Some of the befores are pretty amazing. :)
There you go! A recap of the past three months all wrapped up in one post for you. Of course there were many I didn't include but I know you've got stuff to do. ;)
Have a great weekend my friends!!
