Happy New Year!  Here’s to 2018 – a chance for a new year (a fresh start) is always exciting!  

Thank you for joining me on my DIY adventure, and I am humbled by your support. Here is a countdown of Sincerely, Sara D.’s top 5 posts of 2017…

No.5 – DIY OPEN SHELVES These shelves are an easy and inexpensive solution for a empty wall that needs something.  They provide form and function – storage that looks pretty.  I added the open shelves to our kitchen nook area.  To see more on these DIY open shelves, click here.

No.4 – LIVING ROOM MAKEOVER We all have that space that we can’t quite figure out.  This space was our living room, and I finally figured out a design that functioned well for our family and looked good!  I added DIY wall paneling, a new paint color and new furniture.  See all the details on the living room makeover here.


I needed artwork for my daughter’s room but did not want to spend a lot (and I only spent $3 on this project).  See how to make this large DIY silhouette art by going here.


This kitchen was BY FAR our biggest DIY project to date.  It required months of late nights and weekends, but it was all worth it in the end (and so fun to look at the space and know we built it)!  Go here to see all the details on this DIY kitchen remodel!


This bathroom remodel happened early in the year.  Although it wasn’t a DIY project, it was the first bathroom I have ever designed from scratch, and we love the space.  See all the details on this master bath remodel here.

Blessings for a wonderful new year!

Happy New Year!  I’ve been completely unplugged for the past week spending time in the Dominican Republic with my family.  While there, I participated in my favorite DIY project yet, and I’ll be sharing more with you all very soon! While  looking through my blog stats from this past year, I discovered that my five top posts this past year were actually from 2014:

  1. Perfect Chalkboard Lettering
  2. Starched Fabric Wall
  3. Painted Faucet
  4. Spray Paint Thrift Store Finds
  5. Shortcuts for Painting Cabinets

Apparently, my projects in 2015 weren’t as well-loved as the previous year’s, and obviously, that means I need to step it up in 2016!  

Anyway, here are my top DIY projects for 2015:

1. How to use Vaseline to Distress Furniture

This post is a video tutorial.  I teamed up with Angela from Unexpected Elegance and we created several DIY video tutorials.

2. Bathroom Wall Paneling

The starched fabric wall was the beginning of this project, but the wall paneling completed the look.

3.  Applying Wax to Chalk Paint

This is another video tutorial.  Remember, less is more!

4. Adding subway tile in kitchen. 

My kitchen didn’t have a backsplash, and I was in love with all the timeless subway tile floating around Pinterest.

5. Unique ways to decorate pumpkins.

After my spray-painted pumpkins exploded in 2014, I was done decorating with live pumpkins.  And, decorating fake pumpkins means they can be enjoyed year after year…

Fun DIY Pumpkins

Blessings to you all and Happy 2016!
