January is over??!?!
As I write this, I’m on maternity leaving sippin’ mai tai’s…
I’m most likely covered in spit up, hair barely brushed, and craving a sleep that lasts longer than 3 hours lol.
In fact, little babe #2 is scheduled to meet the world this coming week, but I wanted to make sure I recapped all the goodies for you ahead of time, so you don’t miss a beat.
So after checking out this month’s Make Home Monthly, head on over to my Instagram and leave me a love note… I’ll probably need it.
On to the goods!
I’m sure you probably read every single one of these articles over the past month, buuutttt, just in case, here’s a recap of what I shared this past month…
We started the month by looking back at the top ten DIY home decor products of 2021 purchased by my readers.
Then, we learned how to create a home decorating plan for your whole home in 3 simple steps.
And, as every January should, we talked about 5 home organization projects to tackle now along with my organizational must haves for 2022.
After getting the organizational goodies out of the way, I introduced you to 3 types of lighting every room in your home needs and a few tips and tricks to mixing metals in your home decor.
Lastly, we finished off the week recapping my top paint projects of 2021 and how to avoid the common decorating mistake of choosing the right rug size.
This Month’s Featured DIY Decorating Tool
This month, I ran a flash sale on one of my favorite tools in my tool belt for creating a homier home – The Decorator’s Playbook.
In fact, it’s the first thing I do with every client to make sure that they understand their preferences before starting any room rescue project.
The flash sale is no longer running, but you can still get a discount on this awesome workbook as my happy January present to you.
