My top DIY projects in 2017, and a peek at 2018!

Sharing is caring!

Time to wrap up the past year and celebrate our DIY  & Crafty accomplishments for 2017!

Today’s post is a round up of my Top DIY Projects in 2017.  I checked a bunch of awesome projects off the to-do list, made some cool things that weren’t on the to-do list, and totally canceled or pushed back some other projects that I thought were important. So, you know, typical year for most people. 😉 Today, I’ve got what was most popular on the blog, Instagram, and Facebook this year. Plus, a peek at what’s coming up next year!

Have you thought about everything you’ve accomplished in 2017 yet? Just 9 more days left in 2017. So, it’s time to relax, enjoy the holidays, and take time to be happy about everything you’ve accomplished this year. We tend to focus on things we didn’t get done or on the accomplishments of other people. Well, stop it!

Maybe you didn’t do some of the things you hoped. But, I bet you could look back at your pictures for the last year and see a bunch of fantastic memories with your family, friends, and from working on awesome DIY projects. It’s time to pat yourself on the back! Yea, you!!

Now, on to my top DIY projects of 2017. I hope they inspire, in some small way, another year of creativity!

Coming in 2018!

Like I said earlier, you never know how plans may change. But right now I have a bunch of big projects and room reveals on the schedule for 2018. We may or may not be selling our house this year. So, that possibility kicked off a bunch of projects I’ve been putting off for years, of course. Even if we don’t sell, these really need to be done. I’m pretty excited about all of these changes and plans.

I hope you found something helpful or inspiring from my Top DIY Projects in 2017. Here’s a small list of my planned projects and reveals for 2018.

  • Tray Ceiling Moulding Reveal and Full DIY (UPDATED with link to finished DIY)
  • Master Bedroom Full Reveal with a few small DIY projects to make the room the star of the house
  • Big Master Bathroom Remodel
  • Master Closet Storage update and reveal
  • Twin Headboard Build DIY (UPDATED with link to finished DIY)
  • Our boys bedroom reveal  (UPDATED with link to reveal. I LOVE THIS ONE)
  • And here are a few of the furniture builds I’d like to do this year:
    • An entry table and bench
    • A sideboard for the dining room
    • And a desk or two for our huge upstairs landing

Here’s to hoping I get a lot done this year. And that you do too! I’d love for you to join my new ‘Learn to DIY & Craft’ Facebook Group to find and share only awesome tutorials and how-to’s. Thanks so much for stopping by and Happy New Year!  🙂
