Looking back over the last year for the past few days has been fun, but it’s also been a bit of an eye-opener for me.
You see, I often feel like I’m just spinning my wheels and not accomplishing very much. So…it gives me a lot of satisfaction to realize that I really did manage to complete a few things. 😀
It took several months and many diy projects, but a makeover of my basement family room was loooong overdue. Checking it off of my list was a day to celebrate!
As with everything I do, this room was madeover on a budget. I used some tricks that I had up my sleeve for ‘making do’ with the existing paint color and less than desirable furniture that I already own. There were several diy projects that went into this room makeover.

Part of putting the family room together was creating a typography gallery wall. I had been collecting all of these items for months and didn’t quite know how to put them all together until I was inspired by a picture in a catalog.

You may have seen my kitchen before, but I got a little mushy and shared some of my personal side when revealing more about it in this kitchen tour.

I started on the makeover of one of my guest rooms and showed you how to think outside of the box when it comes to nightstands.
The Perfect Nightstand
I got tired of staring at my dark and heavy bookcases in the main family room, so I restyled them for a lighter, brighter and updated look.
After the reno, the bathroom in our beach condo was looking a little blah so I gave it a little beachy vibe update. A wall of faux wainscoting really made a difference along with all of the new accessories.
Of course these ideas could be used anywhere – not just at the beach. 😀
