Happy New Year everyone! I hope you have all had a wonderful time during the holidays. I really enjoyed myself and relaxed a bit. I’m now ready to share with you my most popular DIY posts for 2018. Let me know which were your favorites.
10 – How to Makeover a Mid-Century Modern China Cabinet
This was a beautiful piece that was in my family since the 1970’s. It would have been a shame to get rid of it since it had quite a few problems. But I am a firm believer in the power of paint. And that is exactly what saved the day for me.
Now the sides of the cabinet are all white creating a softer look and hiding all the damage. I also decoupaged the glass doors to hide my mess.
9 – A Heart Shaped Box for Valentine’s Day Crafting
This was a last minute project that really surprised me. I had a heart shaped box which baffled me for the longest time. It all came together when it was filled to the brim with flowers and my heart was full too!
8 – How to Give a New Life to Old Lamps
This makeover turned out to be much simpler than I had originally thought. My initial trepidation was because the paint went on wet and felt sticky after an hour. But by the next day it had dried hard as nails. Now I swear by this stuff, and use it all the time.
7 – How to Quickly Add Spring Art to Your Home
This was another last minute idea. I think from now on I should not plan things out at all! I had gotten the frame and just added a piece of wrapping paper! Voila!

6 – How to Make an Easy Frame Jewelry Organizer
Another easy project that required very little work on my part. I should totally give up all those hard laborious projects! Aside from the painting, this took all of five minutes.
5 – How to Get Two Unique Makeovers from One Chair
4 – How to Make an Easy Cover for a Bedroom Clothes Rack
Now I have to be honest here, this was not something I expected to be popular at all. It was put together literally days before we moved from Greece to the States. I needed to have the clothes covered and dust free. I would even go so far as to call this the cheapskates’ version of a clothes rack cover. But I guess we all need practical solutions to the problem of dust covering our clothes.
3 – Ten Projects for a Special Valentine’s Day
This roundup of Valentine’s Day Projects was my first collaboration with the ladies from the “Ten on the Tenth” group. Obviously, they are all very talented and I reaped the benefits of their friendship and did very well with this first post, along with all the others that came after.
This is also the second Valentine’s Day project on the most popular list. Humm, I wonder what that means?
2- How to Make Pretty Pleated Curtains with Drop Cloth
Why are these honorable mentions? They were not created in 2018 but they still continue to generate lots of views for me. I guess they must be worth mentioning.
1- How to Repurpose Household Items as Planters
And these have been my most popular DIY posts for this past year. I have to admit there were some surprises in the bunch, especially that clothing rack cover. But you never know what will show up in these lists. I will however, take away that you all seem to like the simpler projects the best!
