Never, ever, ever, ever.
In a million years ever.
Did I imagine all the places this blog would take me. When I pressed publish on that first post a zillion years ago could I even imagine the journey ahead? I started writing a blog because I lived in the middle of the country and I liked to talk.
And I was lonely.
And across the miles and states and highways and byways of the internet….
…I found all of you.
I cannot even with how grateful I am.
And the best part?
WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE THE BIG PLANS FOR 2021!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
But I digress. I think that’s the challenge with me writing a blog. I’m always digressing. Before we go forward with big announcements and exciting news, let’s take a moment to look back.
Here are my top ten DIY projects of 2020.

Y’all were all about this post with a little before and after backyard makeover.

Even though we just finished this project a month ago, it rolled in at number 5.
All you need is paint and a little painter’s tape to recreate it.
This porch makes me smile every day when I walk out the back door.
This took a lot of work, but it made such a difference.
Looking for an inexpensive flooring option?
Why not paint a plywood floor and recreate the look of a painted wood floor.
I LOVED this makeover. We took a simple space under the stairs and transformed it into an organized space.
