10 Most Popular Posts of 2017



And the countdown begins starting with number 10...

Press the links on the title of each to be taken to the original post.

Number 10:

DIY Wind Chimes From Thrift Store Dishes
I have to say this was a project that had me step outside of my comfort zone because I've never made wind chimes before. In the post, I share a short video of how lovely the silverware sounds when clanging together.

Number 9:

Farmhouse Etagere Bookcase From Repurposed Tables
This is an If they come you will build it story. During the course of a year, three identical tiered tables landed on my doorstep from different sources without my asking. Actually, there were four but I repurposed three of them into this...

Number 8:

Queen Anne Table Cooled With Icicle
This one surprised me that it made the list but I suspect it did because of the original condition of the burled veneer top and the transformation in a pretty light blue. The picture hanging above it has a lot of sentimental value, especially now.

Number 7:

The Vintage Student Desk That Went All Glam
Someone had started a makeover on this vintage wooden student desk using red lacquer paint. My plan was to give it a masculine makeover and then this happened...

Number 6:

Mid-Century Modern Bookcase Turned Funky Bar 
Nope, that isn't a papered back nor a stencil. Crisp white paint and playing with bright colors made such an impact on this MCM laminate bookcase that had seen better days.

Number 5:

Vintage Office Bookcase Turned Rustic Farmhouse Cupboard
This was an office bookcase from circa 1957 that a friend gave me when her company changed locations. It totally lacked personality, albeit wood lovers may disagree.

Number 4:

Jacobean Floral Nesting Tables
I must admit I am rather surprised that these nesting tables made the list and especially at how high on the list they came. Don't get me wrong, I love how the tables turned out, especially the color but this was one of the easiest makeovers of the year and I did it while sick with a lung infection.

Number 3:

Mom's Jewelry Cabinet Got A Makeover
This was the most sentimental makeover of the year, especially now after losing Mom in November. Painting it white completely transformed the dated finish but the Wow factor is on the inside after playing with napkins.
3rd Most Popular Post of 2017

Number 2:

Antique Wash Stand Washed In White
When finishing this makeover I was concerned how well it would be received because I used one of those you either love it or hate it kind of paint techniques. I acquired the washstand from a friend and it has an interesting history.

Mid-Century Modern Flower Power Armchairs 
I did a happy dance when I found this retro-inspired fabric at our local Fabricland store. It was perfect for these danish office chairs from the 60's. There is a serendipitous story behind these chairs too.
Most Popular Post of 2017

I decided to include a bonus post because this was MY favorite furniture makeover of the year that didn't make the list.

My Favorite Post of 2017

The Mid-Century Modern Cabinet That Had No Legs
When Mr. Frugalista brought home a dilapidated cabinet with no legs I thought what the heck am I suppose to do with this? You truly have to see the before picture to appreciate the Wow factor of the transformation.
