6: Do It Myself

HGTV has been the channel of my heart since its premier in 1997. I like tackling home decor projects and creating my own personality in a space. This year I pulled all the stops out while creating a comfortable space for my family. All these episodes and Pinterest pins came into play as I settled in to the new digs.

I’ve painted more this year than I have in my entire life! It was all great fun, even the hauling of six solid oak chairs up and down 3 flights of stairs. The bedroom projects were the most fun. I’ve never displayed the young lad’s chalkboard wall. This has proven to be a great communication medium for us.

The dining room is NOT complete as of yet but here’s a peek at the wall.

Then I tackled a gallery wall of different size frames. It is not complete yet because I haven’t stopped to get 2 (YES, I said two!) pictures resized for their respective places. Here’s a shot of how that turned out so far.

This is my family wall. The years to come will possibly result in the area growing. I’m happy with it. Then there is the entry way into the apartment. A small collection of picture taken from my Instagram.

I have a few additional projects but I’m almost complete. It’s been fun. However, I won’t be engaging in too much of this activity in the upcoming year. Why? This place will be finished! 😉
