Happy New Year everyone! I hope you have all recovered from the holidays. I had a wonderful time, so good in fact, that I am now ready to share with you my most popular DIY posts for 2016. Better late than never as the saying goes.
No. 10 - How to Makeover an old Wooden Bed Frame
This old bed frame had seen better days. I wanted to give it a new life and match it with the dresser I had done a few months before. Apparently you all agree it was a good idea.
No. 9 - The Big Bold Heart
My collection of toilet paper rolls and the need to declutter was the inspiration for this great big old heart. A year later it is still making me smile every time I walk by it.
No. 8 - A Nest for My Rustic Eggs
With the Easter Holiday coming up I decided to get creative and make a nest for my chalky painted Easter eggs. The eggs actually survived a month.
No. 7 - Sweater Pillows the Easy Way
Being the ever frugal blogger I try not to throw anything out. Case in point this old sweater which I turned into a fun and cozy pillow.
No. 6 - The Autumn of My Life
This post was not a DIY project, so I hope you'll forgive me if I add it here. It was a very personal post about how you can overcome difficulties in your life at any age. I was very surprised that this post was so popular, it is also my most commented post of all time. I hope that I have inspired others with my story.
No. 5 - The Crafty Bottom
This project was an afterthought. I challenged myself to see what I could do with the bottom of a basket. The result was this piece of wall art.
No. 4 - How to Make Easy Flowers using Egg Cartons
This project was born out of my desire to use up all those egg cartons that I had been hoarding. With a little paint and imagination I created this hanging wall decoration. I especially like it because it is lightweight so if there is an earthquake it will not cause damage. Of course it's also nice that my egg carton piles are gone... for now!
No. 3 - Upcycling the Milk Crate Table
I had made this table two years ago using vintage milk crates, but I felt it needed an upcycle after I had forgotten it out on the balcony over the winter. And this was the result.
No. 2 - Solving the Glass Blocks Problem (curtain with fabric strips)
This post was a tutorial for an easy curtain with fabric strips. Something desperately needed to be done about the glare in my living room from the window made of glass blocks.
No. 1 - The Doily Top Side Table
An experiment, this table took on a life of it's own when I started working on it. It told me where it wanted the doily paper and paint to go... and I happily followed. And you all must have liked the results because it was my most viewed for 2016!
And that officially wraps things up for the most popular DIY posts for 2016. I must admit there were a few surprises. I did not expect to see my humble sweater pillow or the bold heart. But it's always fun to look thru the year and see what was popular. Which were your favorites?
