Some of these top ten posts really surprised me! The number one most popular post of 2015 especially surprised me the most! I can’t tell you guys enough how grateful Joe and I for your support and your shares throughout this last year. We’re still a a really new blog as far as blogs go (just a few months old) but I have been touched many times by all of your wonderful comments. Thank you so much for all of your support throughout this last year – we’re just stoked you seemed to enjoy some of our finished projects as much as we do! Without further adieu, the top ten list of our most popular posts of 2015:
This old dresser has always (and will always) have a very close place in my heart. I spent hours sanding it down (forgoing the stripper) and then finished it with black stain. It is one of my very favorite before and afters but I am absolutely stunned and SO excited that it made #1!!! The Ancient dresser from nowhere
My screw up of our oak countertops making the top ten and reaching #2 on the list didn’t surprise me at all. This screw up was a big deal in my life and when I finally fixed them I rejoiced and all of you guys seemed to rejoice right along with me! #2 Our counter top horror story and how I fixed it!
“Rolling” in at #3 on the top list of most popular posts this is another project that doesn’t surprise me at all that its on this list. I love love LOVE our rolling pantry and it was so easy to make! #3 How to: build your own rolling pantry!
This is another one that didn’t surprise me at all to see on our top ten list. Our post about building our own kitchen cabinets I think strikes to the heart of all of us DIYers across the country. They’re not perfect, but I’m damn proud of building our own cabinets and so glad to share how I did it with you guys! #4 How to build your own kitchen cabinets!
I was really excited to see my grandpa’s old ladder getting a spot on our most popular list 🙂 Every day I get to enjoy this ladder in my walk in closet and it was such a simple project! #5 Transform an old ladder into a fabulous shelf and shoe rack!
It is very cool to see one of my very firsts posts when we first started this blog make this list! Converting my great grandpa’s radio stand into a kitchen island was no short order but it turned out better then I could have hoped! #6 A radio stand converted into a red kitchen island.
Another one of our first posts made the list and this one doesn’t surprise me at all! When we put down our inexpensive wood floors I knew I was on to something that was incredibly inexpensive and very good looking! Months later and we’re still very happen with them, coming in at #7 How to install an inexpensive wood floor that looks like a million bucks!
#8 on the top ten is one of my own personal favorite projects. I built our sink base with old barn wood to match our rustic old farm house and to perfectly fit the ancient cast iron sink I found out in the barn! #8 How to: build your own rustic kitchen sink base
I’m darned excited to see my grandma’s old oak dresser make this list! If there was a throw away turned into a beauty in all of our posts then this was it! Coming at #9 The Old Oak Dresser
And last (but certainly not least!) is one of my newer posts. I had my heart set on a screened door to cover our wood “closet” under our staircase but I just couldn’t find one to fit and I didn’t want to just make a brand new one from scratch. Then I found a big old window screen out between a couple of our out buildings and I got to work! #10 How to: Build a screen door our of an old window
