When you’re in the middle of it, it can be easy to take for granted everything that you do in a year. Going through my projects from 2017 made me appreciate that I made some cool stuff in the last year, though! In no particular order, here are my ten favorite projects of 2017.
Brass monstera leaf earrings – I still love these statement earrings, and wear them regularly.
Suitcase record player – We’ve really enjoyed collecting and playing records on this suitcase record player. After our cats jumped on it a few times while it was playing a record (eek!), I did have to modify it slightly to make it so the top can close while it’s on, though.
Mounted staghorn fern – This little guy has been thriving in my bathroom.
Feminist candles – These candles are a daily reminder that women’s rights are more important than ever.
Test tube plant propagation vase – If you’re of the mindset that the more plants, the better, you can use this vase set to help you propagate your plants from cuttings.
Pompom earrings – You can make these fun statement earrings in your favorite color combo.
Closet makeover – Practically every day I think about how glad I am that I gave my closet this makeover. Even though it was a lot of work, it’s so much better to use that it was totally worth it.
Floating wood shelf – I couldn’t find much good info on how to hang solid floating wood shelves, so after I figured it out for myself, I made this tutorial on how to do it using a shelf in my closet as an example.
Catio – I’m still excited to see whether my cats become outdoor addicts in the spring when they get to go out in the enclosure I built them.
