Our Top Posts of 2018

Take a look back at our top posts of 2018! This year was full of many renovations, room reveals, DIYs and even a growing family!

Can you believe it’s almost 2019? When I look back on this past year, I honestly cannot believe how much we accomplished! We started renovating our barn home in the fall and moved into this new-to-us home just before Christmas a year ago. We’ve painted the whole house, renovated full rooms, and replaced a ton of flooring. We have some BIG plans for this year, but I thought it would be fun to first look back on everything we’ve done this past year by sharing the ten most popular posts from the blog this year!

Top Posts of 2018:

10. Modern Bathroom Reveal

Out most recent room renovation is bringing in new blog viewers every day! This is probably my favourite room reveal to date!

Wow! This modern Bathroom Reveal is absolutely stunning! What a gorgeous space! Everything from the black tub and shower frame, the champagne bronze faucets, and the wood vanity to the black ceiling and built-in storage units! What an incredible transformation! #modernbathroom #paintedceiling #blackceiling #blackandwhite #bathroom #remodel #renovations

9. Our DIY Wood Accent Wall

I’m not at all surprised that this post was in our top ten! We’ve had sooo many readers send us pictures of their new accent walls after following this tutorial and I’ve loved every minute of it!

This gorgeous modern entryway reveal is here! What a huge transformation from the outdated space it once was! From the beautiful bench, to the herringbone floors, to the black front door, and the wood accent feature wall. This entry is stunning!

8. Modern Fall Kitchen Tour

I did a few home tours each year and this one is the first one to crack the top ten! I’m pretty sure it’s because of the hilariously true letterboard!

Modern Fall Home Tour! Beautiful natural ways to add fall decor into your kitchen and dining rooms! Pops of yellow and orange really make this home feel cozy for autumn!

7. Beautiful Dresser Makeover

Every year there’s an amazing furniture makeover in our top posts. You won’t believe what this one looked like before – the after is so much prettier!

5. Free Spring Printable

3. Closet Reveal for a Small Space

This one surprised me! I had no idea it was so popular! I think it’s because we took a small space and made it organized and functional. Isn’t everyone looking to do that?

Great tips for painting a textured wall if you don't want have to scrap all of the texture off! You will love these painting tips!

2. DIY Hanging Shelf

I don’t do a lot of “easy” DIYs. I’m working on that – I promise! But when I do share one, they are always a hit, including this simple floating shelf.

Love this simple modern shelf idea! This simple DIY hanging shelf makes the perfect wall art. If you have some scrap wood and leather you can make this floating shelf in no time!

1. Kitchen Makeover in a Weekend Reveal

And the winner is…. KITCHEN WEEKEND MAKEOVER! You all wanted to see this space transform as much as we did! lol. With all the easy, totally do-able, DIYs in this kitchen, I’m not surprised at all that it was our number one post of the year!

Wow! This stunning modern kitchen was transformed in just one weekend! Love the design ideas in this stunning black and white kitchen! The kitchen features white cabinets, black countertops, black hardware, matte black faucet, black sink, and wood accents. The use of countertop paint and peel and stick tile was brilliant!

Thank you all so much for following along on our renovation journey! I hope you enjoyed looking back on 2018 with me. Can’t wait to see what 2019 brings!
