Top DIY Home Decor + Renovation Projects of 2018 | From weekend bathroom makeovers to full-scale staircase reconstruction, 2018 was a busy year over at T. Moore Home. In case you missed all the tutorials and money-saving DIY tips, I'm rounding up the most popular projects we tackled this year. Including everyone's favorite project - my $10 DIY no-sew curtains.
Before I get started, I just wanted to take a moment to say THANK YOU.
Every time you pin directly from my site, it helps me. Every time you like one of my posts on Instagram, it builds my business. Every follower, every page hit - it all matters to my immensely. I just want you to know how much I appreciate all the love.
My goal with this blog platform is to teach women to love their homes. I want to show the world that they can have the life of their dreams. It takes a little hard work and lots of practice. But it’s completely achievable. I’m living proof.
So thank you for joining me in this DIY Revolution. Without you, none of this would be possible - or even worth my time. I invest in you as much as you invest in me. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!
Here’s my FREE GIFT TO YOU!
I started the year off right by tackling my tiny powder room. It’s tucked under the staircase in our foyer and is one of the first rooms you see in my home. Installing wallpaper and new fixtures went a long way in brightening this previously cavernous space. It was so well-received that it’s become one of my top Pinterest pins and was even featured on Apartment Therapy.

This is my most popular project of 2018. That’s right. I’m not even making you wait for it. Every reader and follower loved the finished space so much. But what really means the most to me is that the family who uses it every day is still in love with it! The homeowners still rave to their friends and show it off regularly. For me, that’s worth more than a million Apartment Therapy features.

Not every home decor project should cost hundreds of dollars. I've made a point of showing my favorite designer DIYs this year. Like these dollar store crafts that you can replicate for less than $10!

This easy tutorial shows you exactly where to find the fabric (hint: it's not the craft or fabric store) and how to hang them to look like expensive custom pinch pleat curtain panels. I originally installed these in my guest room and loved the quality and look so much that I replicated them, adding some fabric dye and painted stencils, in my living room!

This year, I’ve installed more wallpaper than ever before. It’s a real game-changer in DIY design. But it can be a daunting task for those with no experience. So I created this video which is terribly embarrassing but seems to get the job done because it’s one of my most popular posts of 2018.

So this one caught me completely by surprise. It’s not exactly about decorating or renovations but you all loved my cleaning hacks. When I shared the post about how I clean a 3,000 square foot home with only 4 natural ingredients from the grocery store, it quickly became one of the most viral pins from my site.

This one doesn’t surprise me at all. I interviewed four top real estate professionals to get their best advice on how to get maximum return on your home improvement projects. You guys loved their advice and so did I.

I loved showing you all this method. People always ask me how I decide what colors to use throughout my home. So I showed you guys how to choose paint and accent colors for your home using a really easy method that requires no downloads, as part of my Effortless Summer series. AND YOU ALL LOVED IT TOO!

The Look For Less Series explores designer looks and rooms and shows you how you can replicate the look on a budget. You guys loved these and I promise to bring them back in 2019.

Once again, I’d like to seriously extend my appreciation for you.
I look forward to showing you all that 2019 holds. Trust me, it’s going to get better and better!
Happy New Year!
