Top 10 Projects of 2014

It's time to look back at the wonderful year we've had. There's really no big surprise on the projects with the most views this year.

They're all projects I loved to work on and many of them I'm still enjoying around my house.

I want to thank each and everyone of you for your continued support with visiting, commenting, pinning and sharing my work. Big thanks and lots of love!

These are RLC Top 10 projects of 2014.

Once again, a post about something done to the kitchen has been the one with the most views this year. 
This was more like a guide on how to measure and install the shelves; that was the main reason why I didn't tackled this project sooner. 
Having everything organized and within reach at any moment is priceless and hey, no more can goods with due dates that expired years ago!

2. Painted Kitchen Stools - Free graphics

These stools are one of the items that get tons of use around our home. If we need something to step on, perhaps a little table or extra sitting... that's what we used.  The painted graphics are still holding strong. If you happen to have a set of plain stools, you can grab these graphics and give them an easy makeover.

3. Old hutch makeover

Third place goes to the hutch makeover. The old brown hutch that I got for free over Craiglist was completely transformed. I loved it, and I enjoyed the extra storage space I gained with it, but I didn't like that it was a bit too short for my 9-foot ceilings, so this past November it sold. I'm going to build something in its place.

4. Red, White and Blue living room

The window art done for this project was so easy and gave so much interest to this room, it's probably my favorite project of the year.

5. Fall decor - DIY Signs - Free graphics

Another art project that got lots of views, these Fall signs were done on remnant sides of a drawer. Again, you can grab the free graphics and make your own on any piece of wood.

6. Guest bedroom makeover

One of the biggest projects of the year, the guest bedroom, was a makeover that included lots of DIY's, from painting the sub-floor to making the mirror and building the daybed. It was a makeover on a budget, using what I had on hand and re-purposing many items.

7. DIY - Industrial side table

A wine wooden box and some pieces from an old garage door gave life to this industrial side table.

8. Fabric Painted Chairs

Most of us have old chairs that need an upholstery job, but I know that's not easy. I went the easy route with these chairs, instead of upholstering them, the fabric was painted. I love how they look, check the full post with my thoughts about this whole project.

9. Painted table set with driftwood finished top.

Painting the table set was a project done not long ago. I'm still smitten by how good the whole set (table and chairs), look. I see this is one project many of you would want to tackle soon. ;)

10. DIY - How to repurpose an old playset into a potting bench

The potting bench is my second favorite project of the year. The play-set that my kids used for so many years broke and it was transformed into a handy potting bench.

Well, those were the top ten, but I was a bit surprised to see the top 11th. I was not expecting to see one of the 12 Days of Christmas Ornaments there, besides, this wasn't one of my favorite ornaments, but hey, it almost made it to the top ten. ;)
The Spiral Christmas tree ornament was a favorite of you all!

  1. Each of them is fantastic, but I agree with you. My absolute favorite is your flag wall art. So clever and adds so much!!

  2. These are great! My new sister in law is Colombian. She would love these barstools. I love the Ferrari table, too. We went to that winery in Sonoma this year and we loved it so much that I bought a friend of mine their wine for Christmas. Great ideas!

  3. So many incredible projects. My favorite is your windows in your living room. I always enjoy seeing what you come up with.
