The older I get the faster time seems to pass which was especially true with 2017. Although time felt like it was moving at warp speed, we finished some of my favorite projects and are in progress on some others…….you know, the master bath. Lets not dwell on what we didn’t do ok, but rather what we did do 🙂 So lets take a look at my top 5 posts of the year based on your page views! And PS THANK YOU for all of your support this year! I can’t do this without you!
In fifth place for 2017, my DIY Designer Upholstered Bed. If you missed this post, it’s definitely a must read! The Cliff’s note version is we started our master suite renovation this year and I really wanted a fully upholstered bed. But the bed I loved was $3k!!! That’s like a third of a CAR for a bed?! So naturally I found a way to DIY my own for only $300 and included a tutorial so you can make your own 🙂
The fourth place spot goes to the Modern Shiplap Wall we did in our bedroom. When we started this project I had no idea exactly how it would end up nor did I ever imagine it would be so mentally exhausting. I really wanted an accent wall in our bedroom but wanted to step outside the trend box a bit and do something different from your standard Joanna Gains shiplap. I love how it turned out but let’s just say I wish I had paid more attention in geometry 🙂
Third place goes to my DIY Faux Fur Christmas Wreath. This project is probably one of my favorite all time DIYs. The idea came to me one day when I was aimlessly wondering through the aisles of, you guessed it, HomeGoods! I saw a fur wreath but it was like $60 and I just couldn’t justify that for holiday decor. So I made my own and included a tutorial for you! This was really simple to make and looks awesome!
The second place spot goes to my closet makeover! This is likely my favorite project we have done to date because it solved my biggest complaint about our house. My closet was crap. It wasn’t functional, it was never organized and I could never find anything. Solution, the Ikea PAX. This was not sponsored by Ikea, but if anyone knows the folks over there, I think we need to work something out 🙂 Seriously, this was life changing.
Coming in at number one is the kitchen makeover we did over at my mom’s house. This was definitely my mom’s favorite project in 2017 and she is already trying to book us for projects in 2018! But I think readers enjoyed it because we transformed a kitchen in need for only $1500 in 7 weeks. It is proof you don’t need tens of thousands of dollars to make a big difference in how your kitchen functions.
I hope everyone had an amazing year! Thank you so much for all your support in 2017! It really does mean the world to me 🙂 I have some exciting things planned for 2018 so make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss out on the fun!
