A Few Of My Favorites This Past Year

Summer means more time to do DIY projects! I have had so much fun this past year sharing my DIY projects with you! Here are some some of my favorites of the year.

This one actually got lost. I just realized it today. I loved this project.. Outdoor Seashell Table

My favorite DIY Project (Just because I am still in love with them, and I saved thousands) First a small bathroom with ugly marbled fake stuff. Check out the sink…it matches counter top!


Feeling confident, and the estimate was over $8000, I did this Giani Kit on my kitchen counters. This stuff is fabulous! You will love the look and instead of spending thousands, you only spend $79. Everything but the plastic and painters tape is included.


Outside I was playing with Garden Decor when I came up with these:

I love the light I made to hang in the Pergola. These Gazing Ball Stakes above

Some of the best Crafts I have done, I think, are the ones I made with paint sticks. I did this wonderful post about some of the wonderful projects you can make,  using paint sticks. You can find it here:

Do you ever start creating things and end up creating even more projects from that craft? I did.

I started by making this Rug Rag.


Then I took this stool I found left on a curb, I cleaned, painted, then made a shaggy top:


Then this one on a different ottoman:

Then I did a major makeover on this ‘Crusty Heirloom Chair‘ :

So many more, so much more fun. I really want to take this time for making this such a fabulous year! I have made so many new friends, and I feel blessed! Thank you, thank you all for your encouragement and sticking by me, and in my DIY obsession.

      1. Probably! I might do it a tad differently, maybe put some flowers on it or something!
        I really LOVE the idea! I will post about this when I make it!

  1. In the short time I have followed your blog this year, I have loved your posts that you have shared. It proves what you can do to re-purpose things, at little or no cost. I have really enjoyed following.


      1. If I had a garden, then yes, I would have picked them up. But I would have been clueless what to do with them, until I came across your blog.

      2. Look at it as practice Liz. Rustoleum, and I’m sure other brands sell a handle with a handle on a nozzle. You attach a spray paint, and you don’t have to worry about thumbs becoming sore or numb, and getting painted. Have fun experimenting. So many options. You have a very creative ‘hat’…..I know your going to think about it! Spray half and half…like half a chair painted one color vertically and other half a different color. ❤️️🤗

      3. If I was doing a project like this at any point, my only option would be to paint by brush, with me living in a flat. Any projects would have to be indoors, where I could keep my eye on them.
        It’s not something I plan to do soon, but yes, definitely something I could do at some point. 😊

    1. Thank you Robin, you are always so sweet! I finished my second flip! It took 8 months, the surgeries really took up so much of my time. Pain didn’t help. But I can honestly say, I put my blood, sweat, and tears, into it! haha (not really kidding ). I am finally free of casts and boots,my toes are free!!!
      This last one, with the surgeries, was just a pain. But it’s over, for now. I will take a breather.❤️️🤗❤️️

    1. Hi Crystal, thank you so much for asking….that is Gidget. She is Maltese and Yorkie mix. She is 5 lbs. What a personality she has! The pillows are from TJ Maxx.
