25 Home Improvement Projects People Actually Pulled Off In 2018

A fixer-upper is definitely worth the effort.

We recently asked the BuzzFeed Community to show us the home improvement projects they pulled off in 2018, and the responses were inspiring. Here are some of the best:

1. This dining room that got a midcentury modern makeover.

2. And this one that became a boho paradise.

3. This extreme makeover that was pretty dated before the new owners took over.

4. This bedroom makeover that was transformed to such a degree that it looks like it's from an episode of Fixer Upper.

5. And this colorful bedroom that was painted to look like something out of a modern art gallery.

6. This kitchen renovation that was surprisingly cheap to pull off.

7. This trendy new fireplace that was a mess turned into a masterpiece with a few tiles and wood panels.

8. This bedroom that became totally dreamy after string lights and gauzy curtains were hung behind the bed.

9. These countertops that were painted to look like granite.

10. This old desk that Benjamin Button'd right into a beautiful new vanity.

11. This kitchen that was (probably) included in the 2018 Merriam-Webster dictionary as the definition of a "glow-up".

12. This living room that became so much more fun after paint, new floors, and a bunch of colorful furnishings were added.

13. This bathroom that got a style upgrade and a storage upgrade.

14. This new living room addition that was probably the best gift its owners had ever received.

15. And this custom wall unit that actually made the room look bigger instead of smaller.

16. This walk-in closet that became a whole other room!

17. And this broom closet that became a highly functional laundry room.

18. This gorgeous bathroom that was just one of the rooms remodeled by its 26-year-old (!!!) owner.

19. This living room that was painted in a way that tricks your eye into seeing higher ceilings.

20. This bathroom makeover that was given a top to bottom refresh.

21. This living room that turned into the setting of literally every Christmas movie ever.

22. This dining room that became cozier (and cuter) when its new owners added banquet seating.

23. And this gorgeous new fireplace that was a big undertaking, and ended up being totally worth it.
