It’s hard to believe that we’re already at the end of 2016. How did this happen?
As far as my house projects go, 2016 was a productive year. I accomplished quite a bit, considering I only had my two hands to get it all done.
In May, I built a new kitchen table top. We simply needed a larger table, and instead of getting rid of the small table, I built a larger top.
That same month, I also upgraded my garage door with just $10. It was an easy, quick, and inexpensive way to spruce up my home’s curb appeal.
The deck was another story. My goal was to make the deck pet-friendly, which meant to basically rebuild the entire railing.
This project was labor-intensive and long, but I finished just in time for summer. Below is a picture of the deck when I bought the house.
In October, I took on the guest room. I added new furniture, rug, storage, and accessories.
I really don’t have much to complain about. The year 2016 was good to me and my family. We were healthy, we always had food on the table, the kids did incredibly well in school (college), I became a mother-in-law and a Citizen of the United States, and I voted for the first time in my life.
Thank you so much for following along on my journey. I’m so thankful for your encouragement and support, and hope you’ll continue with me on this journey in the new year.
I wish each of you a wonderful ending to 2016, and I’ll see you in 2017!
