What a year it’s been! I started this blog in May of this year and it has been SO much fun. I never expected to enjoy it this much, but it sure keeps me on my toes to get things done around here. :) So in case you are new here, or if you just want to revisit a few of the projects I’ve done, here is a little recap of my top 10. Most of these are some of my most popular posts to date. :)
#1 – The Master Bedroom Makeover (this is still my #1 top viewed post, but I have a close 2nd which I’ll show you later)
And ironically, this room is in the process of getting another mini makeover. :)
#2 – Hutch and Buffet Redo – This was a buffet table my husband had when we married, and the hutch I scored at Goodwill.
I still love it. And it was all painted with several cans of spray paint. :) Oh, and we do not have the red walls anymore, hallelujah. That transform will be further down this post as well.
All I did was paint it out all white in a semi-gloss paint. Why didn’t I do that in the first place? :)
#4 – Dollar Store Hurricanes. Those were a big hit.
That post has been updated with the newer flared hurricane vases that I love even more.
#7 – My Fake Mantel – This wasn’t a DIY project, but this is the Pottery Barn ledge that I bought at the PB outlet and it’s one of my favorite purchases of the year. I love having a mantel to decorate. :)
#8 – The Pantry Makeover (This is my 2nd most viewed post to date)
BEFORE: A hot mess.
Couldn’t have done that project without my Dad who designed those shelves. They are the best! And yep, the pantry still looks nice and organized like that!
#9 – Dining Room Turned Office – One of my favorite transformations.
That was one of the best decisions we made was to ditch the dining room for a room that we would actually use. I love it!
#10 – The Staircase Makeover
That was another project I couldn’t have done without my Dad. He’s the best!
Wow, it’s pretty cool to take a look back to see what all has been accomplished around our home in just a short amount of time. It’s also amazing to see how much my style has changed! I think that is something that will always be changing though.
2010 was a great year. 2011 will be even better, and I have a lot of fun projects planned already that I can’t wait to share with all of you. You all are the best, and I truly appreciate all of your support and love you pour out. You keep me going that’s for sure. :)
