When I started out, I don't think I believed anyone would read it. I now average around 20,000 page views a month. I know this is small potatoes versus some really successful DIY and home decor bloggers out there, but it really is enough for me. I also never imagined it would turn into a small business where I could make some supplemental income for my family, but I have worked with clients to refinish furniture for them and even sold some pieces, too. This was an answer to a vision God put on my heart a couple of years ago. It really is true, that His ways are higher than ours. I never could of dreamed up that this would be the answer to my prayer.
My hope for Pretty Distressed is to keep it going as long as you keep coming back to read it. I have loved hearing from some of you and answering your questions or just hearing about your projects. I know this pregnancy has slowed me down a little bit, and inevitably, my new baby will limit the amount of projects I can take on. I am okay with that because I will always be a mommy first. One thing I am certain, I will never run out of ideas to makeover my home or Goodwill finds. My hope is that you will stick with me as I continue on this journey.
Here is a look back at my top five favorite projects of 2014.
Thank you and here's to a healthy and joyful 2015!
