Happy 2014! I loved 2013 but am really looking forward to 2014 – my self-proclaimed “Year of Fun!” It’s always great to look back at the previous year and this blog helps keep some of those fun memories for me. Based upon your views and clicks, it is safe to say this year was the year of our master bedroom. We finally finished all of the big projects I wanted to complete and you all loved them with me! Below are the top five posts from 2013.

Bar area before and afterConner’s favorite makeover in our house is this bar area, especially the stained wine cabinet from our 5th anniversary. When we moved in, we knew right away that the desk would have to come out (can you say junk collector?). New floors, new paint, an updated cabinet as well as two new beverage centers really make this spot more us!

DIY Mirrored Nightstand5I love that we finally have grown-up nightstands! Conner’s nightstand was tricky with that stupid floor vent but we worked it out and I love it.

Floor Mirror18Every girl’s dream – a full-length mirror to see her shoes! This DIY floor mirror took some time (mainly for drying, but really for silver-leafing) but it was so worth it for the end result and the space it takes up on this empty wall.

DIY Tufted Headboard19The second most favorite post/project of the year is our tufted headboard, inspired by West Elm and featured on BuzzFeed! (What a thrill and lesson learned…don’t read comments you can’t delete!) Mom and I worked all day on a Sunday to get this over-sized beauty finished and I love it so much.

DIY Mirror Nightstand8And finally, your favorite project and mine…the DIY mirrored nightstand on my side of the bed. I had been dreaming of doing this for two years and am kicking myself for not doing it sooner. It is so easy and not as expensive as I feared!

Thanks for reading in 2013! I will be back soon with new projects. For more in between posts, follow me on Instagram and like the Facebook page!

The DIY gallery wall trend is huge. (Just check out all of these results on Pinterest!) I love the variations of this trend and how people are embracing the easiness of this project. I did our wall in 2011 but it needed more frames and really needed some professional mats. (I tried to cheat that part and it didn’t work – lesson learned.) Here is the updated version of our DIY gallery wall.

DIY Gallery WallIt is similar to what we had before but is now larger and more polished! I love the look of the professional mats, it makes the photos look really crisp and clean. I also updated some of the pictures and made all of them black and white – my favorite type of photo.

DIY Gallery Wall2The only picture that isn’t a photo is the Greg Burns black and white drawing of a favorite spot in OKC. Conner actually found this when he first moved to OKC and since we used to live close to this landmark, I love having it in our current house.

I also love/hate having the photo of the beach in Maui. I can’t wait to go on another beach trip but I’m not sure any will compare to our almost free trip to Hawaii!

DIY Gallery Wall3In addition to the pictures of us, I have a picture of my grandpa when he was in the Air Force and a picture of Conner’s grandma with one of my grandmas from our wedding in the Bahamas. Aren’t they cute hanging out on the beach?

I love gallery walls because that can represent any number of things about your personality so I love that ours reflects who we are and who are family is. Are you trying this trend or are you over it? I would love to see a picture of yours!

So today was a fun day on the Internet for me! I was featured on BuzzFeed. Say what?!

DIY Headboard on BuzzFeedThanks to a girlfriend, I was alerted that my DIY tufted headboard was featured as one of their 24 West Elm Hacks. It was a pretty cool feeling to see my headboard and my room on a site like this. Thanks for the feature, BuzzFeed!

Side note: my family doesn’t really support the word ‘hack’ but I get it. I’m knocking off something that is really expensive so I get it. I do! But then I read some of the comments on the BuzzFeed article… ouch… maybe some day we’ll get to see the houses of the people who leave mean comments, yes? 😉
