Happy New Year! Wow! What a great year. I can’t believe we are officially in 2015…yikes! Just as in 2013 and 2012, I wanted to reflect back to this past year and put together a best of DIY Inspired 2014. I broke it up in different categories. Here we go!
Best Furniture Makeover
I did a lot of furniture makeovers for my daughter this year, but the most popular was an old dresser that I’ve had since college. I painted this Chevron Dresser with spray paint and stencils to add a pop of color to my walk in closet.
Best Thrift Store Makeover
I found a little bench at Goodwill for less than $10 and turned it into an upcycled bench for kids with new paint and a cushioned seat, intended for my daughter’s reading nook.
Best Free Curb Side Pickup Makeover
I hadn’t done too much dumpster diving this year. I did love my Santa Stop Here sign from a shelf found in the garbage and a fabric lined serving tray I made also destined for the trash, but the most popular is this DIY Organization Board made with chicken wire I upcycled from an old painting I found in the garbage.
Best Trash to Treasure Project
One of the first projects I did in 2014, January 3rd to be exact, this Repurposed Jewelry Organizer is still one of my favorites of all time.
Best Repurposing Idea
Not ready to part with my daughter’s crib, I made this Repurposed Bed Spring turned Craft Organization, that is probably one of the most useful things in my craft room today.
Best Theme Party Post
I had some fun theme parties I have helped with this year including a Mad Hatter Tea Party, Rapunzel birthday, Dr. Seuss party, Beanie Baby, The Little Mermaid, and Angry Birds party, but these Angry Bird Boxes were definitely the most popular.
Best DIY Gift Idea
This was so fun to make and all natural and organic! This Mango Pina Lip Balm was a hit in 2014.
Best Party Related Tutorial
Who knew these DIY Personalized Bachelorette Bags would be so popular! I actually made these for a girls trip to Las Vegas, but quickly realized that they are great for anytime.
Most Popular Printable
My talented brother designed these Tic Tac Packs Spice Container Printables, which turned out to be popular for Campers this summer.
Best Halloween Post
My very last Halloween post of the year was so last minute! This DIY Minion Costume was simple, quick, and easy to do.
