I've loved seeing these on other blogs, so I thought I'd share my own. (and throw a party so everyone else could, too!)
These are my 10 favorite posts from last year :)
10. I have a tie for #10...is that a cheat?
My $5 lamp
Because it taught me to to look twice at brass! What a transformation!
My Candlesticks -
because a Pottery Barn knock off this good has never been this cheap!
9. My Front Door
Every time I hang a new holiday wreath on my front door I'm glad I painted it black!
8. My daughters bedroom
It took weeks to complete and my 7 year old can't keep it clean to save her life - but on the rare occasions that I clean it up it makes me smile :)
7. The Swing Set
It felt like it cost a fortune and took a year to complete - and it was SO worth it.
6. My sons bedroom
I didn't want him to be a big boy, but he really was. A bunch of fun projects, culminating in a room redecoration made the transition a lot easier for me.
5. Porch Bench
I actually talked my sweet, handsome, indulgent husband into building this for me...but I conceived the idea! And it gives the front porch so much character!
4. Laundry Room
The after is SO MUCH BETTER than the before, I couldn't love it any more.
I did this project before I was blogging, so my before and after pictures are pretty lacking, but the transformation was really rewarding. Even better, I LOVE the piece in my house - it's like it was made to live with me.
This project was also done before I started blogging, so the post is a bit lacking. Our front room is so much more attractive and usable now, though, that I had to put it near the top.
This was a huge undertaking, and it was worth every second of work.
I followed it up by building a bench a week later.
They were my biggest DIYs of the year, they are the things I've used the most, and they are what I've been the most proud of.
There it is - my top 10! Can't wait until next years post :)
