As I said on January 1 when I shared my favorite cozy blankets this season to enjoy this winter, I cannot believe a new year is upon us again. Before we blaze ahead to 2017, though, I wanted to take a moment to recognize the top 10 posts of 2016, and I’m so glad to be joining a group of other amazing DIY and home decor bloggers to do the same. If you want to find THE BEST of THE BEST diy projects and decorating tips, we’ve rounded it all up in one spot for you.
Because I like to save the best for last, I’m going to start with #10 and work my way down to #1. So without further ado…
#10. DIY Cozy No-Sew Throw Blanket
This is SO easy! You can make it yourself in mere minutes, and it will add infinite coziness to your space until spring.
#8. Summer Home Tour
Last summer, I opted for light, breezy, simple decorating ideas… And readers loved it! Check it out and pin your favorites for next summer.
#7. Free Spring Printable
This was the first year I experimented with offering free printables (and – by the way – I have a full free printable library available only to my email subscribers… you can subscribe here!), and they’ve been wildly popular.
#5. Spring Home Tour
When you live in central Texas, spring and summer are a LOT longer than fall and winter, so you’ve got to make it good. 😉
#4. Fall Succulent Planters
These were SO easy and such a favorite online and whenever friends came over to our house.
#3. How to Plank a Wall (DIY Shiplap)
Easy to follow, step-by-step instructions to achieve that farmhouse feel.
#2. DIY Wood Curtain Rods
Inspired by Restoration Hardware, these curtain rods are easy, affordable, and so beautiful.
#1……. [insert drumroll]……….
And that’s it: top 10 of 2016! There were also many oldies that have stayed favorites:
I hope you enjoyed 2016 as much as I did. To my regular readers, thank you for all your support. To new friends visiting today, I hope you enjoyed it and will stick around! Which was your favorite from this past year?!
