I still can hardly believe that the year has come to an end already! 2017 was a year of taking chances for me. I had always loved sharing ideas with others, but was always scared to start a blog because I was worried that someone I knew might read it. Why it’s so hard to get over that fear I don’t know, but I was excited to give it a go in 2017. It was difficult, but I pushed through and now I am obsessed. With 2017 at an end I have worked hard to come up with a plan to really bring it in 2018 and I can’t wait for all of the fun things I have planned for the blog in 2018. Since I haven’t been blogging an entire year yet I don’t have a ton of content, but I still had some posts from 2017 that you seemed to love so I thought I would share The Best of Life on Southpointe Drive 2017 with you today. So here we go….yours (and mine) favorites of 2017!
Let’s start at #1 and work our way down to #6. To find out more about each post just click the link or picture and it will take you to the full post!
My number 1 post (and also one of my favorites), was a collection of 8 Small Home Projects that you can do around your house to make an instant impact. All of these projects are easy projects that can be completed over a weekend and also solo if you can’t find you a helper!
You can give your home an instant pick me up by touching up those dingy baseboards (if yours were like mine!). I shared some great tips on making painting your baseboards easy and you’ll be a pro in no time!
To help get that kitchen organized, I shared some FREE printable recipe cards for you to use to get all of those recipes saved into one spot! I made 2 sizes…one size that will fit into a binder and another to fit inside a recipe box.
Looking for a quick and easy weekend project that will make a huge impact? I shared how you can Install DIY Shiplap the easy way. I did this project solo, so it’s also one you can knock out by yourself!
I have a huge crush on chalk paint and it’s usually my go-to when it comes to making over a piece of furniture in my house. This transformation ended up giving me such a beautiful Restoration Hardware look, and I love it! With a little chalk paint and some dark wax you can turn your old light fixtures into something stunning.
You all must love chalk paint because my next most popular post was my chalk painted chair. I used chalk paint to paint the upholstery on this chair to make it a beautiful staple of my home office!
I want to thank you again for following along in 2017 and I can’t wait for a great 2018! See you all soon and Happy New Year!
