Top 10 Most Popular Posts of 2015

Top 10 Posts of 2015 from Confessions of a Serial Do-it- Yourselfer

Hello sweet Friends! Can you believe another year has come and gone already? I swear I don’t know where the last two months went!

Today I am excited to share my 10 most popular posts from the past year. I am always a bit surprised at some that make the top 10. You just never know what will resonate with people.

Before I start, let me say a HUGE thank you to all of you for your support this year. It truly means the WORLD to me to have you here. I am so excited to start another fabulous year of thrifty makeovers and fun tutorials, and share them with you!

While I did complete some pretty big DIY projects like installing new hardwood floors and creating a faux-coffered ceiling, you guys prefer a good thrifty makeover any day, and that’s fine by me! (Because I do too! :))

Here we go…

Starting off our top 10 most viewed posts from 2015 is my Summer Home Tour:

Coming in at number 9 is a compilation of over 20 of my furniture makeovers that I shared in February:

Number 8 is this sad thrift store shelf I gave a cottage/farmhouse makeover to with a little paint and some old fence pickets:

Number 7 was a surprise since it is a more recent post, my DIY sectional slip cover reveal. I have since posted the step-by-step tutorial as well which you can find the link to in this post…

Coming in at number 6 is a thrift store pineapple lamp that I turned into a memo board, as part of a Flea Market Swap challenge:

Number 5 was the follow-up post to this oak dresser of my Mom’s that I made over for her as a surprise while she was out of town. I shared this first and followed with the rest of the oak bedroom set…

This was a dated oak dresser that was brought to life with DIY chalk paint!

Next up is this very hotel-esque headboard I found at a thrift store for $4.  A little paint and some graphics turned it into a real charmer:

The number three spot in the countdown belongs to these Fancy chalkboards I shared, all ready for market, as part of my March Madness Series. That was mostly thanks to Pinterest…they went nuts over there! I almost didn’t even share them on my blog since I make a ton of chalkboards for my booth that never make it here, but these ones were so pretty I had to. I snapped these photos real quickly just before loading them into my car!

Coming in at number two was the recap of my March Madness series, where I shared the before and after of all 31 thrifty transformations I shared that month!

(You’ll also see that many of my top 10 posts are from that series.)

March Madness, 31 Thrifty Makeovers in 31 Days!

**Pssst…I’ll be back this March with more Madness and 31 more awesome thrifty makeovers!**

Also part of my March Madness Series is my number one most-viewed post of 2015, and one of my favorites also, my Mason Jar Blue Headboard Bench:

So there you have it! I’m always a little sad when some of my favorites don’t make it, but that’s okay…

 I’ll share them anyway 🙂 …okay these are three of my faves that didn’t quite make the top 10:

First up is this thrifty fabric framed mirror made from thrift store parts that I just love. It’s one of the few projects I actually kept for my home:

I also loved my new gallery wall above my bed that’s all about me and my sweet:

And probably my favorite project although too recent to acquire enough page views to reach the top 10, is my new sign for my living room made from old fencing!

There are several furniture makeovers that I loved as well, but since my last round up in February, I counted 33 more that I’ve done, so it’s about time to put together another one of those too.

It’s always fun to look back.

And there are lots more to come in the year ahead!
