Happy New Year my friends! It’s hard to believe that 2018 is over, but I am excited to see what 2019 has in store. I’m not going to lie, this year has taken its toll on me in more ways than one but I am recognizing the positives and looking forward to a fresh start with 2019! But before we dive into the New Year, let’s take a look back at the best of 2018 with my top 10 posts of the year.
Coming in at number ten is my Modern Barn Door tutorial. It has been close to a year since we hung the barn doors in our bedroom and bathroom and I have no regrets. These sleek doors were the perfect solution to the limited space we were working with.
Even though we completed our home office several years ago, it is still a fan favorite. For me, this is one of my favorite projects we have done. Before we tackled this space, the door was often left closed because it was just that bad. Our Ikea makeover completely transformed this room into a highly functioning dual home office.
This simple Ikea Hack was a priceless solution for my numerous end table needs in our backyard makeover. When I say simple, I mean simple! Anyone could do this and it only took a few minutes and not a lot of money. I have since also added one to our front porch.
Our backyard makeover was the largest project we took on this year next to completing our master bathroom. I spent a fair amount of time planning this and couldn’t be happier with how it turned out! We have come so far on this space, believe me! Just check out the before pictures!
As part of our backyard makeover that we took on for the spring One Room Challenge, we built a custom dining table for our patio. I will be honest, the biggest thing we had ever built prior to this was our upholstered bed, so I was pretty nervous trying our hand at a table when we were on such a time crunch. Somehow, we manged to pull it off 😉
One of my goals for 2018 was to get more organized and my necklace situation was getting out of control. What can I say? I have never met a clearance rack of necklaces that I could successfully walk away from, haha! With limited space and not a lot of money, I came up with the perfect solution to keep things organized, untangled, and hidden.
In case you haven’t noticed by now, I kind of have a thing for Ikea! My modern planter hack came in at number four in 2018. These inexpensive trash cans were my budget friendly solution to a tall modern planter. They also earned me a spot on Apartment Therapy’s top Ikea Hacks for 2018!
We completed my closet renovation in 2017, but this small space continues to top my charts. Living in an older house means smaller closets, but if you plan them right, they can hold a lot more than you think! Trust me 😉
We built two of these sofas for the spring One Room Challenge where we made over the backyard. They quickly became very popular and were at the top of my most read posts. We love how they turned out and can’t wait to use them again this spring!
The full tutorial on how to build our outdoor sofas was hands down my most popular post this year! People DMed me on Instagram almost daily asking when I would be writing it. You asked, and I gave it to you! If you are considering building your own they were a pretty easy build and definitely don’t blow away with our high winds here in Colorado!
Thank you all for your amazing support in 2018! I can’t tell you how much it means to me that you follow along on my DIY home design journey. I litterally could not do it without you! I wish you all a happy and prosperous 2019!
