Top 10 Posts of the Year & My Personal Favorite

I studied the data in Google Analytics to find the top 10 posts from 2016.

I discovered that my readers unanimously like old stuff, but not just any old stuff…

Top 10 blog posts and projects |

You like new stuff made to look like old stuff.

You like old stuff repurposed into new stuff.

And you really, really like farmhouse stuff. 🙂

It makes my heart smile that there are so many other people all over this great big world that love farmhouses and old stuff as much as I do!

So, counting down, here are the top 10.

Number 10

In terms of page views, my Remodeled Entryway came in at #10, but it’s my personal favorite project of the year.  The Farmhouse Wood Shutters were actually the final project we finished to call the room done.

Coming in at #9 was the Woodland Christmas Guest Room Tour.

It’s one of those curl-up and hibernate-for-the-winter cozy rooms.
