Take a Look Back…My House 2012 Blog Year in Review


2012 blog year in review

 Shouldn’t we end every year with a quick year in review? Shouldn’t we look back and see what we’ve done…what we’ve accomplished…what we didn’t? Yes! So today, I’m sharing my 2012 Blog Year in Review!

Really….it’s more of a 1/2 year in review! I began my new blogging adventure in July of this year but it’s been a very busy, exciting 1/2 year!

When I started House on the Way I had no idea what a wonderful experience it would bring into my life. I am having such a blast working on this blog. I’ve made so many new friends in the blogosphere and learned so much from each and every one of them.

And you!…my readers are the best! I want to say thank you for your support. I love that you’re there, reading and commenting on my posts and projects. If it were not for your following, I would be no where!

So without further ado…let’s take a quick look back at House on the Way in 2012…


My first feature was at House of Hepworth’s, where Allison featured my DIY Disco Ball made from old CDs. I was so excited!

One of my most popular posts was my Camouflage Can Be a Girl’s Best Friend where I shared a great idea for creating a gallery wall to cover up anything ugly (like a breaker box) on your walls!

I loved my Chair Re-do in Navy Blue! This great chair was scored from Restore for $10 and what a score it became with a coat of paint and some great fabric!

This mirror was one of my best finds of the year! I love my unique triple mirror! I added a little hand painted design to create some added interest.

My personal favorite DIY project was my Swan artwork! I had pinned an example of some great wooden swan signs and I finally got around to doing my own.

I tried something new for Christmas this year…an alternative to traditional garland. I used Christmas swags on my staircase. It was a fresh new look that was a fun and creative addition for my Christmas decor.

    What a great year of posts. I love that swan sign..so very pretty. I actually have this large tray that I have been trying to think of something to do with it. I just haven’t been inspired by anything to paint it…that just may be what I’ve been looking for. Love your style. Consider me one of your new followers for the new year!

      Thank you Christina! I just visited your blog and love it! I feel in love with the compass rose dresser in your son’s room. I have a table I’ve been wanting to do a compass rose on. You’ve inspired me! Have a great week!
