My Favorite Projects
A new decade? My daughter reminded me how we celebrated new years eve 2 decades ago. We rang in 2000 with bubbly apple cider while living in Columbus. We were expecting our third child in the new year and we celebrated that night with our Netflix mailbox delivery subscription. Netflix and drycleaning delivery kept me sane during these two decades. And, in the days ahead I wanted to share a few of my favorite projects in 2019.
I can’t remember what we did in 2010 which means I was in bed by 10 pm. So before we ring in the new decade I wanted to share my favorite projects in 2019. Of course, the biggest project this past year was this one!
5. Our Dining Room Table
This post was a surprise because it was so personal and it had nothing to do with a project, upcycle or design change. It was all about the story behind a table. Thank you for your comments about a table that most days holds tennis shoes and mail. Except, it turned out, it holds so much more.
4. Garage Sale Wreath Makeover
I miss garage sales this time of year. We all know that feeling when we see the directional signs to the garage sale. And, in those seconds just before it is too late to make the turn, our cars magically navigate towards the unknown: the possibility of a garage sale find.
When I brought this wreath home I almost tossed it because it smelled like a moldy, smelly basement. I aired it out for days. But, the finished fall wreath was pretty spectacular.
3. How to Keep the Kitchen Sink Pretty
I had so much fun sharing simple ways to keep the area around the kitchen sink pretty. Here is the kitchen sink post. My favorite posts are the ones that stick to the basics.
2. How to Create a Casual Hot Cocoa Bar
Who knew? Honestly, I think the word casual was a big reason for my hot cocoa bar’s popularity. If you follow Everyday Edits on Instagram you know I am about creating a casual life at home.
1. How to Make Cement Pavers
Shhh… this project was as easy as making pancakes. Just add the cement mix + water. It is fun and rewarding to create new things with a bag of cement and plastic forms. Blending an upcycle with a sustainable item.
The details are here.
