Yes, I think for the most part, I did.
Goodness me, i's hard to believe we are now coming to the end of the year in which I decided to make a pledge to make my home a nicer, happier and craftier home to live in. The Pretty Crafty Home, or PCH project has been a great motivator for me and I hope it has been for those of you that joined in too.
I've achieved a lot this year. Not everything I wanted to perhaps, but really I can't feel too badly about that when I look around and feel happier in my own home. There's always next year too...
I thought I'd have a little look back at what I've done this year and share some of my favourite bits with you.
Has to be this great project that me and The Little One worked on in the school holidays. Easy enough for both of us and as simple or creative as we wanted to be. It was great.
Making over these box files was a walk in the park. A lick of paint, a little decoupage and a splash of Mod Podge. Done in a day.
Without a doubt it was the decision to wallpaper over the dreaded red wall in the dinning room. I updated the curtains and made new curtain ties too, so there was plenty to get on with. Absolutely worth it though.
These chair covers were the hardest and consequentially the thing I'm most proud of. In fact I really still can't quite believe that I managed it even now!
My favourite make of the whole year has to been these thrifty curtains that I made from some salvaged bedsheets and cut up old duvets. It's the perfect type of PCH project, thrifty, recycled, repurposed and home made through and through.
What about you? What's your favourite project been? If you'd like to leave a link in the comments, I'm sure we'd all love to come and check it out.
For me, this year has shown me that if I put my mind to it, I can make things happen and make a difference around here so I'm not stopping just yet. There's still things on the list waiting to be done after all.
I hope you've enjoyed coming with me on this pretty crafty journey and that you'll keep up the good work next year and in the years to come too.
