And without further adieu, here are the top 10 most popular posts that you liked!
#1- Our Under $300 Complete Deck Addition. When we needed to expand the deck and make stairs to lead to the yard, we turned to pallets as an inexpensive material to help fray costs.
#2- The Best $13 We Ever Spent. The people who used to own our house must have owned stock in a pea gravel rock quarry, because there was about 3 tons of it in the landscaping. Removing a lot of it and spreading it thin gave us a base to do our own concrete cobblestones using this neat gadget.
#3- My recipe for Jalapeno Cream Cheese Corn. The holidays sent this one rocketing into the top 3. Creamy, spicy and full of corn niblet goodness, this is one of my favorite side dishes for just about everything.
#4- How to Replace Broken/Chipped Veneer. A common problem with just about everyone at some point in their life, broken veneer can lead to having to paint a piece of furniture. Knowing how to fix veneer, you can restore it to its former glory with stain.
#6- How to Economically Replace Leaded Door Glass. A $50 ReStore find was quickly getting out of hand when I got the quote to fix the little broken pieces of glass in it. Luckily, there's a way to fix it without having to pay the price of a whole new door.
#7- Our Kitchen Renovation. Our kitchen was living in the 90's when we walked into its life. With some hard work and budget friendly ideas, we were able to turn it into something we can be proud of.
#8- Easy Etched Glass and Homemade Laundry Soap. Homemade gifts can be elegant and fun thanks to the miracle of Armor Etch.
#9- Making an Antique Horse Collar Mirror. At first I thought this one was so popular because I had added a bunch of before and after's at the end of the post. To my surprise, tracking key word search, there were a ton of people Googling how to make a mirror out of a horse collar.
I just realized at this moment, that I should have counted down from 10-1. Kinda anti-climactic to not have a drumroll going off in my head right now. But, oh well. They're all winners to me. :)
#10- The Wonderful World of the ReStore!!! This one also has some before and after projects, but most importantly it introduced a ton of new people to the Habitat for Humanity ReStore. For that, I am thankful.
Thank you so much for an awesome first year! I hope we have many more together!
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! Catch ya on the flip side.
