6 Month Review

I realized last night that it has been 6 months since I started writing.  Yay! I thought it would be fun to take a look back at my top 6 posts of the last 6 months.  Its a little crazy to me that it's been 6 months already.  I've enjoyed sharing with you guys so far and hope that you guys are enjoying it too!

So, starting from number 6, was the First Look




On this post I showed off what our house looked like the first time we saw it.  It was nasty and gross. Sometimes I wonder what made us even agree to buy it.  But we saw the potential it had to become something great.

Next up is the Gallery Wall I created one afternoon. I still really love how this turned out.  It really adds character to this side of the room.  Of course, now I feel like all my other walls are bare compared to this one, but I'm still working on things.



Number 3 was my post about The Problem with Blogs and Pinterest.  I think a lot of people really related to this issue.  I have been doing better about not comparing myself and my house to others.  There are those off days when I wish I could just leave my house and move into one that is already perfect but those days are becoming less and less.  I think by writing out my frustrations regarding that, it's really helped me think clearer.  And it's nice to know that I'm not the only one who feels that way.


In May, we celebrated 1 Year in our house.


 We still love the house and look forward to doing many more upgrades and personal touches here.  It's slowly becoming more us and we are also slowly learning what our style is as a married couple.  I think that's been one of the hardest things, finding a combined style.  My husband and I have very different tastes when it comes to decor.  He definitely has an opinion on what goes in the house and he knows what he likes and doesn't like.  So for us to work together and come to common ground is really satisfying.

In July, I showed off my Headboard Makeover.  This curb-side freebie was such a fun project to complete.  It was a little challenging to figure out how to make it work, but it turned out so well!  It's actually now at my booth at the Caledonia Vintage Marketplace waiting for someone to come and buy her.

After
And finally, my number 1 post was my Ikea Rast Hack!  This was another fun and challenging project.  I really love the transformation that some paint and new hardware created.  The entire project cost me less than $50, with my "oops" paint, free hardware and a can of gold spray paint.  Can't beat that!



It's been a busy six months!  But I'm loving it!  I'm so grateful for everyone who takes time out of their day to read my little blog and I hope that it gives you some inspiration as well.

Do you have a favorite post that I didn't feature?  I'd love to hear what your favorite one is and why.  Feedback from you guys really makes all this worth it.  I love hearing from you!

    1. Thank you so much Amy! And to think that both the headboard and hardware were FREE! I think those always make the best transformations.
