This week, I am planning projects for 2023 by looking back at my 7 favorite Home DIYs from 2022.
Let’s count them down.
This simple DIY shows the power of paint. We used SW 6991 Black Magic, and it’s soooo good. It wasn’t as hard of a decision to paint it as it would have been if the brick had been natural, but my husband resisted this one for some reason. This is at our Trowbridge project, and it made a huge difference in the living space. Here is a before and after.
We had to DIY the stair railing in our Ellery and Third Street project early last year when we ran into supply issues. I haven’t written the tutorial yet, but it’s on my list. I love how this project turned out. We used gas piping and pipe flange, and the only thing I would reconsider is that kids love to crawl on the horizontal bars.
This DIY desk is one of my favorite DIYs from 2022 because it was cheap and easy! We found the door at our local Restore, which perfectly fits into an awkward corner of the principal bedroom at our Ellery and Third Street project.
I absolutely love this DIY living plant wall, but it caused quite a bit of controversy. People wrote that the plants would drip when watered or most certainly die. Neither was the case. The plants held up very well, and no drips (I put them in the sink to water)!
And the after.
I made a headboard from plywood. This was reasonably easy for a DIY, and even my husband likes it now that it’s finished.
This DIY is at our Ellery and Third Street project (a short-term rental), and our guests LOVE it. I started using it for cut flowers but then switched it to my original intent, which was plant cuttings.

And as propagation vases.
It is usually hard for me to pick a true favorite, but hands down, this is it. Who knew wallpaper would make such a huge difference? This bold floral paper was not easy to hang but worth the aching back! I am looking for more ceilings to wallpaper; I love it so much.

It was quite the year! As I looked back on all the things we worked on, two entire house renovations, a new deck at our house, plus a mini kitchen update, I realized never to underestimate the power of paint- or wallpaper. They can indeed have a big impact. I hope I’ve inspired you with my 7 favorite Home DIYs from 2022 to start your own DIY project.
Until next time,
