Happy New Year, everyone!
Did 2016 whip by as quickly for you as it did for me?
Looking back at 2016, it’s hard to believe how much has happened since then and how much has changed around here.
Last January I shared my goals and plans for the year, and it was fun to read back on them this December and see how many we’ve accomplished; while others we shelved for another year (or perhaps, forever).
I’ll be chatting about my goals a little more next week; but today I’m here to share my Best of 2016! My favourite as well as the best or most popular and most read posts that I shared in 2016!
Here are my 5 Favourite Makeovers from 2016
My favourite projects are always the big room makeovers.
I love a good before and after.
And this year we tackled two (and a half) rooms as part of the Spring and Fall One Room Challenges.
In the spring, we gave our living room a facelift (even though it has already changed a good deal with the addition of our new fireplace right before Christmas).
This past Spring, I also took part in the Frogtape Paintover Challenge and we gave our basement a completely new look! We love how bright and fun this space is now…
Another late spring project was tackling our poorly cared for and damaged lawn; we were so thrilled with how easily we were able to improve it…
As part of the Fall One Room Challenge, we took on our Master Bedroom. Originally it was going to just be our walk-in closet, but it seemed to snowball into the bedroom as well. But I’m super thrilled with the results (#allthehearteyes for that rug!).
But makeover reveals are not the only posts that are popular;
