Happy New Year, amazing friends!! Can I tell you how excited I am to get started on a brand new year full of thrifty makeovers?? I snuck in a couple of thrift store stops this weekend and found a some goodies to start the year off right! This is going to be a fantastic year! 🙂
Before we dive into a brand new year of makeovers, today I have pulled together my 10 most visited posts that were created in 2017! I always enjoy looking back, and I thought you would too! (Click the link below each image to see more of that project.)
Starting with number 10 and counting down:
I married two pieces to create one super cute dressing table:
It didn’t last 10 minutes in my booth! #truestory
I hoped this next one would make it into the top 10 since it is one of my favorites too:
Upholstered French Provincial Chairs
I let those old chairs sit in my garage way too long…I even used them as part of my Halloween display, they were so creepy!
This was a fun project created out of two frames I rescued last-minute from my yard-sale pile:
Who couldn’t use a cute cupcake stand?
This post got a lot of action because I added to my Kitchen Cabinet Painting Tutorial which you can find HERE. That was my most viewed post of all time!
Painted Cabinets: Three Years Later
This one was surprising since I just shared it this month!
This next one was another favorite of mine…
Pedestal Kitchen Table Makeover
It has held up beautifully with daily use!
I just had to bring this cutie home…Jack started on it and I finished it.
Hutches are great sellers for me…that is when I paint them white. This blue one sat a little longer than expected, but it did eventually sell.
I just reshared this one the other day as my favorite Furniture Fixer Upper Makeover, but it was also a fan favorite, coming in at #2 most viewed from this year!
Thrift Store China Cabinet Makeover
This table really was only 99¢! I had to check with the salesperson to see if that was right!
99¢ Thrift Store Table Makeover
A pair of handles and a set of wheels from my hoard gave it the look of a cute cart!
And that is my top 10 most viewed posts that were created in 2017!
It’s funny that most of my top posts from this year were furniture pieces. Ya’ll do love a good furniture makeover, don’t you? Some of my personal favorites weren’t furniture pieces at all, so I’ll be back with my favorite non-furniture makeovers from 2017 on Thursday! Here’s a peek:
Lot’s of potential right there!
UPDATE: See how these became real treasures HERE now!
Meanwhile, I will be getting busy working on brand new makeovers to share!

What a fun and creative trip down memory lane! I adore the inspiration and will be taking some of this to heart with projects at my new place.
Happiest New Year Christy, family and readers!

Donna Duffy says
Love the new wall in your office, beautiful as usual
Thanks, Donna! I am so pleased with how it came out as well! XOXO
I love all of your projects and it was fun to see which ones made the top 10. I look forward to seeing what you share in 2018!
Thank you, Paula! I am excited to start on a new year of makeovers! Happy New Year! XOXO
Carole Larsen says
I love every one of them. That’s because you have a signature look to all of your make-overs which just happens to be my look also.
Thank you, Carole! Yes…love anything that would fit in a cottage by the sea! 😀
Linda Petersen says
Hi! That was fun????. I would have a difficult time picking a #1 out of that group. Can’t wait to see your non-furniture picks. I’ll bet the American Girl wardrobe makes the cut. That one is one of my favorites!!???? Happy New Year????????XOXO, Linda
I’m so glad you enjoyed it, Linda! The doll clothes were from 2016, but they are easily one of my favorite projects of all time as well! Happy New Year!! XOXO
Linda Petersen says
Duh! Talk about a senior moment (I just turned 69) Lol! Time flies when I’m having fun????. The doll clothes are still amazing no matter what year it was. You are amazing Christy????.
Ha ha no worries…in your defense, it was late 2016. ????
Nancy @ Artsy Chicks Rule says
Oh how fun that you had some really new ones in there! Loved them all! Can’t wait to see what you share Thursday! I’m sharing a few of my favorites from 2017 too, since some of them didn’t make it in the top 10! xoxo
Thanks!! I know…I was surprised to see some of those more recent ones makes the list too! Now that most of the home projects I wanted done are complete, I am super motivated to get back to creating! ????????
Kim Bontrager says
What fun it was to see the top 10! I remember reading thru every one of them! I’ve been so inspired by you and your creativeness, and have loved watching your house come to life! Looking forward to seeing what you’ll create in 2018!
Thank you so much, Kim!! I’m so glad you enjoyed looking back with me…I always enjoy seeing what people liked best! Looking forward to many fun makeovers in the year ahead! XOXO
Debbie in TX says
My favorite was the kitchen table makeover. It’s so beautiful. And it’s very interesting to see the top projects. Love your creativity, and can’t wait to see what’s in store for 2018! Happy New Year, Christy!!!
Thank you, Debbie! I am so pleased with how that table turned out as well. I always enjoy seeing what people liked the most each year. Thank you so much for all your kind words and encouragement throughout the year! XOXO
Julie Briones says
Love all of these… but I think my fave was the two-tiered tray. I love the items you used to create it… made it very special!
Looking forward to this new year! Hope is a BIG one for you!
Thanks, Julie! I enjoyed that project too since I used things I had been holding onto for forever! Happy to have you along for the ride for another fun year! XOXO
I seemed to have missed your cupcake holder. That is such a great idea! I’ve been looking for a 3-tier holder. I’m thinking of using 3 frames, each one smaller. I can’t wait to get started!
Happy New Year to you and your family!
I almost put those frames out for my yard sale, but as I was pricing them, I had an aha moment! Have fun making yours! 🙂
Patty Soriano says
thank you for the recap, Christy! Looking forward to more in the new year! I have a lot of furniture in storage to re-do and I need all sorts of ideas !!
My pleasure, Patty! It is always fun to look back…looking forward to offering more inspiration this year! XOXO
I just love your projects, thanks for sharing them.
Thank you, Robin! XOXO

Christy, your work is fantastic! I’m discussing No-Spend and Low-Spend January this week and wanted to let you know I’ve featured your blog with this post and the repurposed picture frame post as examples of how to use things up or make do with them. Your posts are always the first things I look for when I open my computer.
Thank you so much! I just dropped by there…I really appreciate the feature! Your Grandma knew what she was talking about ha ha! XOXO
Christy, all these DIY Top 10 posts are really fantastic! The before and after are just amazing! I love all your paint colors used and how beautiful everything looks afterwards! You are super creative!
Keep up the great work. I am looking forward to your posts of 2018!
God bless and Happy New Year!
Thank you, Sandi!! It really is fun to see them all together…too bad I can’t keep them all! Looking forward to lot’s of creating this year!! Happy New Year to you too! XOXO
Christy, you work your magic on each and every piece you touch. Looking forward to seeing what you have in store for us in 2018! Happy New Year xo
Aww thank you my sweet friend! Happy New Year!! XOXO
