Favorite DIY Projects of 2016

What a year it has been! 2016 was a wonderful year for us – from creating new and exciting content, to new partnerships, building relationships with our readers and making new friends in the blogging community. We were thrilled to be recognized by Better Homes and Gardens as a Top 10 DIY blog again this year. It has been so much fun looking back through all of your favorite (and our faves too) posts from last year. We are highlighting some of the top posts from 2016 – the favorite DIY projects. And we want to take a moment to thank all of you – for taking time out of your day to visit our little place on the internet. – Sara & Melissa
