Top Projects of 2018

It’s always fun to go back and at the end of the year and see all the projects that were completed. It’s like looking at a to-do list that has been all crossed off. 

I have gone through my posts from 2018 and found the posts with the most traffic and engagement. I am always happy when my personal favorites make the list.

As soon as the snow melted, we were mucking out in the mud to prep for adding a new patio. Actually, it snowed on us a couple of times during the process. You’ve got to love Utah weather! I love the gray pavers and that we have a place to relax outside.

“How is it you have a dishwasher under your sink?” is one of the most asked question I get so I wrote a whole post about the details of my under sink dishwasher

When we added a patio to the back of the house I knew I was going to need hide the ugly electrical boxes on the back of the house. I didn’t want them distracting from the pretty patio. This sliding planter wall easily glides out of the way so you can access the electrical panels.

I was going to use this toy box crate as added storage for one of the boys’ rooms but when my niece said she needed some toy storage for her 2 year old, I added slow close hinges and gave it to her. It is an easy wood working project that can be used to store just about anything. Maybe that is why it is one of my top pins from 2018.

We moved out 4 boys into two room instead of them all being in this 21 foot long room. Two of them moved to our old bedroom and two of them stayed in here. We put their beds at one end and the other end of this long space is a playroom.  You really need to see the whole space! It is one of my all time favorites.

The other two boys love music and wanted a more modern feel so I added a brick wall to hang their guitars on, built custom beds, painted their dresser, and added a table for their keyboard. It is such a fun space! Head over to see the full room full of DIY projects.


If you are frequent blog reader then you know I love plants. I also love coming up with different ideas for planters. Here are 15 of my favorite DIY planters!

I guess I need to do more furniture makeovers because you guys really loved this one! It helps that the before was pretty, well, ugly. A lot of prep and a little paint was all this dresser needed to get a new life!

It was a big expense but it desperately needed to be done. And as soon as we got the new gorgeous roof, I noticed how shabby everything else looked. It took all summer and there are still a few things we need to do, but we upped our curb appeal game! 

It took years (literally) but we found someone willing to tile our arched shower nook. It took him two weeks and it turned out great! It completed our bathroom makeover I worked on last year.
