The Best Home Decorating Ideas of 2017

I cannot believe another year has come and gone, but I loved reflecting on your favorite home decorating ideas that I shared in 2017.

There were a few surprises, a few of my favorites that didn’t make the list and I learned a little from it as well. 

Thank you so much for following along. It means so much more to me than you know. I love when you share how you were inspired by one of my ideas on Instagram or leave comments to let me know that it’s not just my sister reading. Thank you!

Without further ado, your favorite home decorating ideas from my site in 2017:

  1. Updating an Oak Kitchen without Painting – wood can feel beautiful and up-to-date with just a few simple changes. update oak cabinets without painting them

  9. TV that Looks Like Art – this was my favorite project of the year in the room that I liked the least. It’s amazing how it’s transformed since we purchased our home just a few years ago. best home decorating idea of 2017 samsung the frame
