Over 50 Simple and Affordable Home Projects

Happy Thursday!  I hope everyone is having a great week.   I am!  Not only because I'm a busy girl in the design studio, but I also have some new DIY/home decor projects going down behind the scenes.  I'm excited about all of them, but a few in particular were really simple projects that had amazing results.  I can't wait to start sharing them next week.  By popular demand,  I've decided to get back our project tutorial roots and blog more about the fabulous projects that go down behind the scenes daily.  

In the meantime, 
I thought it would be fun to take a look down memory lane at some of my past projects...

Here are some of my favorites…
