Take A Look At 2014

This year seems like it went by at lightening speed. Wow! 2015! Can you believe it?

I thought it would be fun to share what my personal favorites were and what the top 5 popular posts were.

2014 My Favs

I would have to say that the front door is one of my top favorites!

I still L.O.V.E it! Everyone in the neighborhood know's my house has the orange door.  It's so cheerful and bright!  It was a small change with a HUGE impact!

Next up our dining table and chairs.

You can see the transformation Here: Part 1, Part 2, Dining Chairs

This completely changed the look in our kitchen/dining area. It has held up well and I have gotten tons of compliments on them, especially the seat covers. The "Give Thanks" is such a good reminder. :)

Don't you just love the orange fabric???

I think this next project gave me such a great deal of satisfaction! The Paint Shelf.

DIY Shelf to Organize Paint

I made 90% of it myself and it's my motivation to get the rest of my basement organized this next year!

Up next.... The Cheap Outdoor Pumpkins

Before and After DIY Outdoor Pumpkins

These came out sooooo awesome! And FYI... They held up superbly throughout all of the wet rainy fall season. I'm pretty sure I'll be making another set for next year so I can have a matching pair.

The last 2 projects were kind of a combo.  One was the Ikea Besta Hack and the Mini Gallery Wall Shelves.

Before:

What do you think of the after?! It was a lot of work, but sooo worth it!!

Then just add the Mini Gallery Wall Shelves and it's complete!!

I am so pleased with how this all came out.  My living room doesn't even look remotely the same!!

Okay, now here's a quick round up of the Top 5 Popular Posts for 2014.  These definitely wouldn't have been ones I picked, but lots of you out there did!!

I have been blogging for about 4 years and I enjoy sharing all the things that go on here at The Stonybrook House. From building to decorating, crafting and cooking, and so much more. I enjoy gardening and a healthy lifestyle. Most importantly I love The Lord Jesus my Savior and my wonderful hubby of 28 years!
