Best projects of 2020 and plans for 2021! from Thrifty Decor Chick Leave a comment


Hello there! This is always one of my favorite posts of the year because I see
how productive I am…even when I don’t feel like it! I don’t feel like a
total sloth after pulling this post together. Especially after this last crazy
year!

I didn’t think I’d have much to share, but I did plenty last year. They
weren’t all huge before and after makeovers…but I think I like these even
better! Most of the projects are easy to accomplish in a day or two with
little money. 

Remember that projects around the house are my job…and I love it! I love to
wrap up the previous year and hopefully inspire you for your own home.

The updates make this little spot so fresh and clean — love it!

White board and batten on stair wall

My plan year was to continue this on the other two stair walls…but I got
distracted. 😉 I plan to do that this soon.

We use our outdoor spaces more than ever this year! I always wanted to string
pretty cafe lights out here and we finally got that project done. See how we
hung the
outdoor lights without trees here!: 
Patio with fire pit and cafe lights

Ahhh…I love them so much! They have held up beautifully through storms and
snow!

I’m already looking forward to some spring nights there.

It’s a dark, moody room, but I
brightened it up a bit for the summer here. It’s now the best of both worlds!

It’s the perfect mix of form and function! I’m so glad I went with that fun
fabric.

I shared the first look at
our guest room
— a few little touches made a big difference: 
farmhouse bedroom with metal bed
black and brass accents in white kitchen

I’ve since painted the hood a lighter gray and love it even more! I am
so happy with the black hardware — that’s such an easy DIY that
makes a big impact. 

Our basement saw a few projects that warmed it up even more. I finished
painting most of
the walls the dark gray
Westchester Gray paint basement family room
wall of picture ledges and toy storage

Those are just a few of my favorite projects of 2020! Did you miss any of
them? 

I didn’t accomplish much from my to do list for last year — our finances
have been hit hard with schools not being 100 percent most places so we
nixed most of them. 

We are hopeful for a better 2021 for so many reasons! Our hope is to address
the same spots I wanted to tackle last year and maybe more? 

future basement kitchenette

It’s huge for a basement! I have started planning out the layout and we are
all coming up with fun ideas for this space. I’ll share my plans with you
soon!

I wanted to tackle our son’s bathroom last year but got distracted. I hope
to take down a wall in here and add some fun tile to this wall:

I would also LOVE to wall off a space in our basement storage room —
we’ve made it into a workout space and I have dreamed of closing it up
since we moved in. That would be a BIG project so I’m not sure it will
happen. 

Heck, I’m not sure any of it will happen…crossing my fingers! I would be
perfectly happy with another year of smaller projects — we’re just so
thankful we were able to do anything to our house last year! 

Do you have any fun DIY projects or makeovers planned for this year?
