It started with setting up a home office, then progressed to cleaning out the closets. Pretty soon we were repainting that spare bedroom and planting a garden. By mid-summer, we were adding a deck or renovating the kitchen. Lumber became as precious as hand sanitizer. No doubt about it, this was a year for home improvements.
Last year we launched our “Yearbook,” an annual salute to the best new shops and products of the previous 12 months. In 2020, we’re dedicating this compilation to our favorite home improvement projects. So please tell us what projects—large or small, cheap fixes or major investments, totally amateur or professional—gave you joy in the midst of this chaotic year. Photos optional but appreciated. We’ll be sharing our favorites in an upcoming issue of Atlanta Magazine’s HOME.
