2014 Top Ten Posts

Yep, it’s that time again. The end of the year when everywhere you look there’s a recap of something. I guess it’s a good thing to look back and see what we’ve accomplished or learned. And since I’m nowhere near as funny as David Letterman, I’ll keep this short and sweet. But really, can you believe another year has come and gone? 

Curious facts about my top 10: 

  • 2 of these are “round up” posts.
  • 4 of these posts are paint related. 
  • 9 of them involve a tutorial, tip, or ideas for redoing something. 

I’m paying close attention to what y’all like to read so look for more like these in 2015 and beyond! Is there anything specific you’d like me to write about? I love to get requests!

Now without further ado, here’s the most popular posts written in 2014. Click on the title to read the post.

  1. You've had so many great projects this year! Those pewter paint colors are just what I need to see right now as we have a few rooms that need paint. My mom just got a new glass top stove and I'll have to buy some Bar Keepers Friend for her. She will love being able to clean her stove easily.

  2. Angie, Happy New Year! I enjoyed your top 10 posts! Pinning and sharing of course.. Love the color swatches..my house is painted in Revere Pewter, It' such a great neutral. Again, Happy New Year and wishing you lots of success in 2015!
