At the end of every year it’s fun (and informative) for me to take a look at my statistics page and find out what the most popular projects were for the year. This is the first year I’m sharing this list with you. I don’t know why I haven’t shared it in prior years???
I was happy to see that the Top 10 Projects of 2015 on Create & Babble included posts from every category that I write about: DIY, crafts, furniture building, repurposing. Heck, even a decorating post squeaked into the top 10!
Let’s start with #10.
#10 Furnishing a Small Deck
#9 Trivets made from tile samples
#8 Rustic Wooden Tray
I think this must be Dan’s favorite: he uses it every single day!
#7 An Easier Way to Make Lined Curtains
#6 A DIY Wedding Gift
#5 Kitchen Island Made from an Old Desk
#4 How to Make Decorative Storage Boxes
#3 Building an Armoire
#2 Picnic Basket Makeover
AND THE MOST VIEWED PROJECT OF 2015 WAS:
1 Filling grooves in paneling
Along with making the top 10 most popular projects, it also made my list of top 10 messiest ; ) But the end result was so worth all the dust!
Now here’s some other great Top Ten Posts of 2015 from some blogging friends for you to check out…

These are great and I can’t really pick just one. They are really great projects and I am looking forward to next year. Happy New Year’s
I have to say I giggled when I saw your most popular post. I’m sure you have helped thousands of people who bought homes built in the 70’s with old dark paneling and they didn’t know what to do with it. What a great idea!

So many great projects here! My favorite is that wooden tray, but also love the island, it’s gorgeous! Happy New Year! XO
You’ve had a great blogging year! I remember when you posted your tray wanting to make my own and after seeing it again, I’m going to make that happen. I look forward to following along with you in 2016!

I guess I missed the desk into island–love it, and I have pinned!
Lots of fun ideas! And I can’t imagine filling in all those paneling groves. That takes patience! Hope you have a happy 2016!
Oh my goodness! You built and armoire? Amazing!! I love your picnic basket. It is darling. AND the paneling looks amazing! You are so talented, my friend. I look forward to seeing much more from you in the near future.
Happy New Year.
I am sure filling in the paneling made a huge difference! Great list!
Wow what amazing posts, Jeanie! I love them all but that building an amoire is simply incredible!

Happy New Year Jeanie! You have had an amazingly productive year, and I am in love with the kitchen island made from an old desk. I just have to hop on over there to see how you did that!
