Top Ten Projects of 2017

I've been putting together this top ten project post every year. It's been a nice way to see all that was accomplished during the year.

But, it's also a way for me to feel less guilty about not working during these two final weeks and instead, feel like hey, what the heck, it was a lot of work and now I deserve to take these two weeks. :)

So, yeah, I went to check all those projects that got the most views to create the following count down. →

As usual, there were some projects that I thought would do better and didn't even make it and there were others that were a total surprise to me to see them climb and make it to this list.

So, let's start at number TEN >

10.  THE EASIEST DOOR TRIM
Chalkboard  |  Coffered Ceiling  |  Mercantile Sign
This was indeed an easy project. 1 x pine material and straight cuts for a simple way to trim a door.

9.  PATIO MAKEOVER

DIY - Floating Deck
This is one of the biggest projects I've ever tackled. Well, well, let me rephrase that... This was the biggest project I've ever been involved in. My brother in law was huge help during all the process of this deck, I might say he did like 80% of the work, but none the less I was there at his side, working with him at all the phases of this build. And every day that I worked on this, I went to bed feeling like I had carried the weight of the world on my shoulders. Ouch! my back hurts just to think about that.

Anyhoo, the pain is gone, just the same as the ugly space this was before. That's one of the things I like about DIY. You invest time and energy into a project and then all that's to do it's enjoy the fruits of your hard work.

This is one of those projects I thought would do better than sit on ninth place.

8.  KITCHEN MAKEOVER
York Three Light Pendant  |  School House Ceiling Light  |  Area Rug |   Kitchen Stools
One of the last projects of the year, the kitchen revamp made it to the eighth spot. One of my good findings during this makeover: Painting the kitchen cabinets for the second time wasn't as involved as the first time I did it. ;) I'm loving my new bright kitchen.

7.  STRING LIGHTS ON DECK
  String lights |  Patio Set with Firepit  |  Rug  | Patio Umbrella
Adding lights to the deck was one of those last minute projects that proved adding lights to and outside space doesn't have to be that complicated or expensive.

6.  COASTAL VOTIVES

These coastal votives were a repurposed project were the power of paint played a big role in.


5. DIY COMMAND CENTER

Nothing beats organization. Pieces of wood from the scrap pile plus some tools were the necessary elements to create this wall organizer and keep my desk clutter free.

4. LIVING ROOM MAKEOVER

There were a few projects that went into the transformation of this room... A board and batten wall, windows and door trim, crown molding and even furniture makeovers. They all were the character this room needed.


3. OUTDOOR SERVING CART


A great piece of furniture for outdoor entertainment or even for indoor use if you have the space.

2. CHRISTMAS HOME TOUR
Pendant light  |  Build-ins  |  Tablescape
There is always one project, in this case a post, that made it to the top ten thanks to Pinterest.  The Christmas home tour was that post this year. Only three weeks ago it went live and it made it to the top second spot. Sasweet!  :)

Wouldn't you love having tons more posts like this!

1. DOUBLE LAYER DRAWER ORGANIZATION
