Can you believe it’s the LAST day of 2018? I really don’t know how it’s possible, and I have to say–this year was easily the fastest year of my life. It was by far the busiest, but the most fulfilling as well. I’m SO excited for the new year ahead and I cannot wait to see what God has in store. A new year brings new beginnings, new opportunities, new dreams, and so much hope. I’m hope you’re excited and ready to take on 2019! Today for my last post of the year, I thought it would be fun to take a look back at my top DIY home decor posts from 2018. I know so many of you LOVE farmhouse style DIY projects as much as I do, so I figured this would be a great way to close out the year here on the ol’ blog!
First up in my farmhouse style DIY projects is my DIY coat rack made from vintage tin. I think this was my favorite DIY home decor project from the entire year and you all seemed to love it too! For this one I simply used a panel of vintage tin to create a unique coat rack that is totally functional. In fact, it’s still hanging in this exact spot and we use it every single day. You can see the full post here.
This easy and fast tray makeover was something I actually did on a whim after buying this round tray from Target and not loving the color scheme for several months. I finally decided one day to change few things up to make it a bit more “me” and I ended up loving it! You can see how I did it in this post.
Another favorite DIY from this past year was our DIY television covers. We made this from old doors and some affordable pipes from Home Depot. It was a really fun project and a great way to add some interest to this blank wall in our living room. See the full post here.
This interior door transformation was definitely one of my favorite DIY projects from the entire year. And actually, I think it’s one of my favorites ever. I simply painted these doors from white to black and I LOVE the change.It made a huge difference in this room. I shared a full tutorial on it here.
I still love this little side table we made from a vintage Westinghouse fan crate! I have it down in my office and I can’t help but smile whenever I think about the journey this old crate has been on. It was so easy to turn this into a useful side table and you can see the whole post here.
Have any Elmer’s glue sitting around? And a blow dryer? If so you might want to check out this easy DIY vintage crackled paint project. I remember this involving quite a bit of trial and error, but I finally perfected the method and I shared it all in this post. It’s kind of a fun one and I love the finished look!
Ahhh the chalk-painted cubby. I remember this post being a big hit and it’s one of my favorite chalk paint projects ever. Ironically, this was one of the first times I had ever used chalk paint on a metal surface, but it worked like a charm! You can see how I did it here.
We added a pair of black barn lights to the reading nook back in January and I still have them hanging up today! This was a really fun project because we simply hung up the lights and did NOT hardwire them in with electricity, we simply used battery operated puck lights. Check out how we did it here.
Repurposing this old vintage grain sifter into a wall shelf was a fun little project that I really enjoyed this past year. That grain sifter is from the late 1800’s, so it was awesome to be able to repurpose it into a useful and functional piece of decor. See how I did it in this post.
Have you ever tried making your own chalk paint? It was on my to-do list for quite a while, so I finally made a batch and shared the results in this post. It’s definitely something to look into if you do a lot of chalk painting!
