It definitely felt like our most ambitious project to date! In the late spring we decided to jump into the makeover of the kitchen of our family cottage. Over just several weeks we gave the room a budget-friendly remodel with repainted cabinets, new quartz countertops, a farmhouse style apron-front sink and beautiful beachy accessories. Our tutorial on painting tile backsplash almost made it into the top 10 as well!

9. Tween Bedroom Makeover in Teal and Pink

Jane’s oldest daughter moved bedrooms and was treated with a colourful new space. With teal painted walls and pretty new accessories, she’ll be able to enjoy her tween bedroom makeover for several years to come.

8. Woodland Baby Shower Decorations

We love that our little woodland critters made the top 10 list. Sonja designed these cuties which are perfect for a baby nursery, baby shower decorations, as gift tags, ornaments and more. 

7. DIY Woven Wall Hanging

Our friend Jelica from A Pretty Fix blog shared this lovely wall hanging idea with us back in the spring and our readers loved it! 

6. Christmas Gift Bag with Iron-On Vinyl

Our first project using our new Cricut Easy Press made it to our top 10 list! We’re so excited to share more Cricut crafts in the coming year. Is this something you’d like to see?

5. Painting Kitchen Cabinets Tutorial

Our tutorial on how to paint kitchen cabinets without sanding made it to the top 5! It’s a budget-friendly way to completely renew a dated kitchen. We’ll be sure to post an update of our coastal cottage kitchen in a few months and share how the painted cabinets are holding up.

We got so much use out of our DIY outdoor shower enclosure this past summer. It’s been amazing in reducing the amount of sand that’s being brought into the cottage.
