In a few days one chapter in our lives will end and another begins. While we all look forward with anticipation to the promise of a new year with new hopes and goals, let’s reflect on the pleasant memories from 2015. What will you remember most about the past year? I hope the positives outweigh any negatives. The most impactful event for us personally was the birth of our third beautiful son in October, and a big event for me in blogging this year was the launch of my second site DIY Furniture Makeovers.
The purpose of this blog is to inspire you to be more creative and step outside your comfort zone with your own makeovers and upcycles. Here’s a countdown of my 10 most popular DIY projects from 2015 – I hope you’ve been inspired by some of them!

* Easy DIY Infinity Scarf from a T-Shirt *

I haven’t gotten to paint as much since Baby E was born in October, but I’m hoping to get him on a consistent nap schedule soon so I can get back to my favorite creative outlet. 🙂
Which of these projects was your favorite in 2015?
All of your 2015 projects are wonderful, but if I had to choose a favorite it would be the ‘Blue Grain Sack Chair’ – so pretty! Look forward to seeing what you share in 2016.
Happy New Year,

Jen, they are all fabulous projects. I think it might have been the suitcase dresser or decoupaged desk that introduced me to your work, can’t remember which one. Looking forward to seeing what you have in store for us in 2016. Happy New Year!
Thank you, Marie! Happy New Year!! xo
