Share your best of 2016!

Hello and happy new year! I hope your start to 2017 was happy and healthy. I know I say this a lot during different seasons...but this is one of my very favorite times of the year! I LOVE taking down the Christmas decor (as much as I love it) and having our house all bright and clean and open again. LOVE. IT.

I know my posting schedule has been wonky lately but things will get back to normal by next week...we're just now starting to get back to a normal schedule again (school...blah!). This time is an exciting one though because our schedules open up again and my mind gets going to all of the fun projects I want to tackle throughout the year. More on that soon!

I shared my best and biggest projects from last year in this post and I thought it would be fun to look back on your "best of the best" of 2016 -- my favorite projects linked up to the before and after link up each month. I welcome you to share your favorite DIYs and before and afters of the year at the end of this post! It's fun to look back at your projects...these were just a few of my favorites!

At February's party I shared Tammy's DIY solution to a table that serves both levels in her kitchen:
DIY breakfast bar two levels

It's more of a table up top and a bar when you step down into the other part of the room. I think this is such a brilliant way to deal with what could be an awkward spot. 

In March I shared Sharon's clean and bright mudroom makeover:
modern mudroom with built ins

You know how I'm a sucker for black doors!

In April Liz's stained and painted dresser stopped me in my tracks:
gray and wood dresser

I love gray with anything, and especially with wood tones. Beautiful!

In May I shared Stephanie's pretty dining room makeover:
squares on whole wall

Those small rectangles on the wall make a big impact!

I'm pretty sure I forgot about the party in June (it was a trend in 2016), but in July I was wowed by Monica's pretty fireplace makeover:
bright white fireplace with marble

That tile is so pretty! I may be using it in our home this year too! 

Carli's pretty patio makeover in August already has me excited for the spring:
small patio updates

Love her bright, fun colors!

And in September Jenna's pretty powder room makeover stole the show:

Such a pretty, serene space, right? Just lovely!

In October I loved Kim's DIY solution to a bunch of the kid stuff in her son's room:
DIY pegboard for kids storage

This giant pegboard is cute and holds a ton of stuff! I LOVE that it looks like art.

And finally, in November I shared April's pretty farmhouse kitchen makeover:

What a pretty and bright kitchen! Love it!
