Last year was a very busy year for me. I worked hard on projects all year and of course I have my favorites. Today we’re looking back on the projects that were the most popular projects according to Google Analytics. It’s always strange when I check the stats because the projects that are on my favorites list sometimes don’t get the traffic I think they deserve. Here are the top 10 projects from 2017 in order of least popular.
I love this Cutting Board iPad Stand. It was so easy to make. I’ve never seen anything else like it online. I simply used an easel from a thrift store picture frame to hold up a cutting board. It seriously doesn’t get easier than this!
This Portable Folding Pallet Bar made from 1 ½ pallets was a very fun and easy projects and possibly one of my all-time favorite projects. Why, you ask? Because I thought of it all myself. Many times I’m inspired by projects that I see in real life or online. This is not one of those projects. I couldn’t find anything else like it. There are lots of pallet bars, but I never found anything similar to this one that totally folds up for easy storage and offering the portability.

Here’s another Thrift Store Décor project. I sort of “collect” drawers from other projects, but I actually purchased this lone drawer to make this Vintage Drawer Shelf. It is painted with my new favorite Smoked Glaze.
You may think that this Double Pedestal Oak Table and Chairs project was painted with the same glaze. It was not. I wish it had been that easy. I’m not sure I’ll ever do a complete set of table and chairs again. It really is a lot of work!
I love marrying furniture pieces. Making new items out of old, unwanted items is my favorite thing to do. I love how this Navy Blue Writing Desk Hutch turned out.
A Floor Lamp Solar Chandelier is made by adding a free chandelier to a $10 thrift store floor lamp. Spray paint blends everything together.
This isn’t my first Storage Bench Made From a Dresser, but it may be one of my favorites. I reconfigured a free dresser, painted it and added new hardware. Isn’t it perfect?
I actually had this vintage suitcase for a long time before I did it’s Makeover
If you have some old ceiling fan globes and cheap solar lights, make some of these easy Glass Globe Solar Lights to hang in your garden or on your patio.
