Welcome back to our first Monthly DIY Challenge of 2016! If you are new to our challenges, a bunch of my favorite blogging pals and I get together and "challenge" each other to create a project based on a particular theme or material. We then share our projects on the 2nd Wednesday of every month. We have some great themes this year and I can't wait to get creative and start DIY'ing.
Before we get started on this year's projects, we're taking a look back and sharing our favorite and most popular projects from last year's challenges. You'll find anything from scrap wood to plumbing pieces to Dollar Store makeovers, we're sharing it all! We're also giving you all the chance to share YOUR best projects, so be sure to link up at the end!
By far, my most popular and most viewed Monthly DIY Challenge project from last year is.....DRUM ROLL PLEASE....
March's painted door makeover!
It was the first door that I painted in Sherwin-Williams Iron Ore, but certainly wasn't the last. I later went on to paint the mudroom doors as well as the large dining room door. It's the cheapest and easiest way to make a huge impact and statement in a room. If you're debating painting your doors dark, I say, go for it!
Erica from Dwell Beautiful knocked it out of the park with February's pipe theme. She made these amazing canopy's for her bedroom to help disguise her popcorn ceilings.
Sarah from Little Red Brick House took multiple mirrors from the Dollar Store to create this beautiful window pane mirror. You would never know it was made using multiple $1.00 mirrors!
Kristi from Making it in the Mountains also used a Dollar Store item to make these beautiful etched glass vases. Head over to her blog to see the multiple vases she made. The possibilities are endless!
As part of "The Great Crate Challenge" Leigh Ann from Houseologie turned a few ordinary crates into beautiful green campaign inspired storage.
Erin from DIY Passion used July's paint theme to turn curbside tables into "matching" bedside tables.
One of my favorite challenges was November's Cork theme and I love what Amy from Canary Street Crafts did with an ordinary cork board.
For January's storage theme, Nicole from Meet the B's updated a plain 'ole basket by white washing it with chalk paint.
Breighanne from Average But Inspired created custom art by using steel pipe clamps from February's challenge. Isn't it such a creative addition to her kitchen?
June's theme was scrap wood and Tara from Anything and Everything created this beautiful address plaque. It just goes to show that you should never get rid of those scraps of wood.
Now my friends, it's time to show us YOUR very best! Link up your favorite DIY project from 2015 (please no recipes or fashion posts) and we'll be sure to share a few of our favorites across social media!
Don't forget to come back to our party on the Second Wednesday in February when we will all tackle: METALLICS.
