Top 10 Hits of 2015.Thursday, December 31, 2015
It's been a fun, busy year, yah?
Never as busy on the house project check-it-off list as I'd like, not gonna lie. There's still plenty to do for sure and I'm reaaallllyyy hoping oh-16 is going to be a thumbs-up, banner project completion year. Really hoping. Heh.
I did manage to get quite a bit done though, in retrospect. Yeah, wow, lots.
But rather than prattle on about the past year or dribble on about resolutions I'll never make nor keep, I thought as a fare-thee-well to 2015, as motivation to jump start 2016, I'd share the top ten most popular Flipping posts of the year, as evidenced by page view numbers to date.
I'll toss in a few of my fave '15 projects at the end, ones that didn't necessarily rank in general numeric popularity but ones that are hits with lil' ol' me. Ah see, as I scroll, I'm already having trouble culling that list, darn it!
But so ok, hey hey, let's get this party started!
#10...Backsplash! Showing y'all how to make brightly colored grout was grand! I do love that bright blue grout. #notsorryatall
|Ack!! So fun, bright blue grout! I love it.|
#8...How To Paint a Bathroom for $1. It was a good tip sharing year and letting you in on the joys of the oops mis-mix paint section reaped a few ganders. Seriously good tip though.
|Turns out the color is...3 oz. of black in eggshell white base. No name. Ha!|
|Buy new tile. Redo of entire bathroom in order. Omg, I just want that tile on the floor already.|
|Temporary storage. Temporary.|
|With its free door handle and everything...nice.|
#3...Plants! Again, maybe as #4, I'm not sure. Or maybe it was my excitement at having all these fantastic gorgeous new plants in our yard that was contagious.
|Cannot wait for summer!!!|
|There's my shadow, heh. Silly boy.|
#1...The Grand Gigantic Curtain Experiment. A little surprised? Yeah I was too but this one stoked controversy. Lots of folks keen to inform I did this how shall I say, not as I should have, in their opinion and such and whatever. Clearly they missed this post.
What were some of my fave projects and/or posts from the year? Looking back, yeah, it's mighty tough to whittle the list. I had fun doing stuff, writing stuff, sharing stuff. In no particular order:
The master bath vanity. Yes. So proud of that thing. Nice way to start 2015 all right.
|Aww yeah, nice vanity.|
|I LOVE this wallpaper.|
Painting the kitchen cabinets black. It was a mountain of work for sure. The change was dramatic though; it filled my heart with warmth and glee. Plus duh black paint!! The best paint color Ever. Other than maybe yellow.
Mike Time. Heh, because Mike did some stuff! :)
The paint-by-numbers-ish dog portraits. Because they're adorable and all dogs should be honored.
Cutting holes in the wall because I bought a new level. Heh, that was entertaining. Lots of messy icky joint compound but I'm thrilled with it. And how nuts was I to just start ripping walls open?! (Don't answer that.)
The DIY library rug. Not only was it a blast happening upon that insanely fabulous now coveted fabric, it was a blast writing the post. As was having my handy dandy trusty assistant get in the way per usual.
I better stop poking around as I'll keep listing posts and we'll be here 'til 2017!
Here's hoping you all have a stellar, fun-filled holiday and an even better new year! Thanks for reading along and see ya next year! xo
