Take a look at the top DIY projects of 2019! All of these easy beginner-friendly woodworking, DIY and home improvement projects have been extremely popular!
Another year coming to a close…
This year marks year 4 of this little blog of mine.
2019 in review + 2020 plans
It has been a really great year! I made many new friendships and partnerships. And most importantly, I got to know so many of my amazing readers as well!
Conferences and learning
I attended 3 conferences this past year – WorkbenchCon, Haven and a conference with my ad network. I am so glad I attended every one of those.
Each was different and helped me learn, look at my blog in a new light and opened up many opportunities.
I am looking forward to attending these conferences again in 2020 and can’t wait to see what they bring!
This year was also filled with many partnerships – old and new. I got to work with many brands – including some of my dream brands!
I already have a bunch of partnerships planned and in the pipeline for 2020 that I am very excited for them and can’t wait for you to see all that we have planned.
Thank you so much for supporting the brands that make it possible for me to bring you all the projects and ideas.
And again, I only work with brands that I know and believe in and never share products that don’t measure up to my standards.
One of my goals for 2019 was to launch my online shop. I finally got everything together and launch in the last quarter of 2019.
I was totally overwhelmed by the response and I am so grateful for all your love.
In the new year, I plan to expand the lines and I have an entirely new product line coming soon! I am just working on figuring out some of the backend! So stay tuned!
Now let’s talk about your favorite projects from 2019!

I love looking back at which ones have been your favorite projects!
It tells me what you like and… what you didn’t like…
And it helps me make a better plan and create projects you will love!
Now let’s take a look back at the top 10 reader favorites of 2017 – in reverse order, of course, because it is always fun that way.
10. Front door makeover
Every time I walk through the front door, I fall in love with it. I am so happy I went with the color I did!
It is absolutely gorgeous and works really well with all of our decor.
I really wish I had done it sooner. If you want to update your door, I show you step by step how to do it the lazy way – that’s right! No taking the door off the hinges!
9. DIY Table Saw Stand
This is the one project that took way longer than it needed to! If you saw the post, I started building it in February but didn’t finish it until August.
It was basically a case of over-engineering but I am so glad I waited and thought it out found a simpler solution. I am really happy with the way it turned out and it makes my table saw so much more portable and easy to use!
8. Ikea Rast Hack
This is one of my favorite Ikea makeover projects ever!
Even though I messed up the alignment on the drawers and I have a whole messed Ikea Rast in a closet to prove that, I am so happy with the idea in my brain that came to reality!
Today, it sits in its perfect spot next to my daughter’s bed!
7. DIY Dog Bowl Stand
So many of you loved this simple and modern dog bowl stand! Brittany came up with the idea and I helped sketch it out so you can build your own!
6. Convertible Toddler Table and Chair Set
You know I will always have a special place in my heart for kids’ table and chair sets!
When I saw this one from one of my Facebook group members, I knew this had to be shared with the world!
There are 27 combinations you can use them in!
5. Tiered Raised Garden Bed
This raised garden bed was one of the many outdoor projects I took on this year.
We had a lot of fun growing tomatoes, cucumbers and bell peppers and we can’t wiat for spring to grow more in the new year!
4. Under-bed Shoe Organizer
In a small old home with barely any storage space, every inch of storage counts – especially the one under the bed.
Not only is this under-bed shoe organizer is easy to build and customize but it has a transparent plexiglass cover to keep the dust out while keeping all the shoes visible.
3. DIY Hammock Stand
A hammock in the backyard was one of our dreams.
This one is a simple build and uses only 3 power tools!
2. DIY Spice Rack/ bottle organizer
I have to admit that this is one of my favorite projects of the year!
I called it a spice rack but ended up using it as a craft paint storage rack. It is pretty and colorful and keeps all my paint organized!
But of course, you could use it for spice bottles too!
1. Corner Produce Bin
Being able to use all the corners and adding vertical storage is always a bonus!
This one took a little figuring out… but I am so glad it worked out! It is definitely one of the most used projects in this house.
And the most loved by all the readers too!
And there it is!
