Year End Review Part 2, Most Comments

Yesterday, I shared my top three popular post.  Today, I'm sharing the ten posts I received the most comments on.  Since you already know that  SPLENDID TRANSFER , SILVER and WHITE, and GLAZED CHANDELIER are on this list, I added the next three most commented on.   Honestly, the response I received to some of these surprised me, especially number one.  I never know what to expect when I hit publish, and I really appreciate you all taking the time to let me know what you think.  Remember, you can click on the title to review the original post.

My magazine rack as side table.

Number nine, SURE, WHY NOT?
You didn't think I was nuts to turn a fan blade into a towel rack.


Number seven, HINT OF BLUE
This was one of those redesigns that sorta took me where it wanted to go.

Number six, CARRYING ON
Vintage box redesigned with horseshoes and curtain rod parts.

I didn't know what to expect when I did this post.  The response surprised me.

I love playing with vignettes.

This was my first Christmas as a blogger, and it was a blast to visit all of you.  Glad you checked out my little tree.

Sometimes I get a great surprise when I distress an old piece.

The response on my little carrier really surprised me.  I almost didn't do this post.  This was the first time I showed you how to use horseshoes as handles, but not the first time I did it.  I wish I could show you the carriers I did before, but they are long gone, and I didn't take a photo.

I'll be taking a  look back at furniture redesigns next.  See ya very soon.

I like being able to look back at a glance like this - and to see some of the work you did before I became aware of your blog (or any blog for that matter!) It's always a pleasure, and I really appreciate your generosity with your tutorials and product information!

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Hi Rosemary!
Isn't that the truth? I never have any idea what to expect either! I'll think I've found the greatest "thing" and people will completely ignore it in favor of something I thought nothing of!

Well let me first say all your posts are amazing! You have an artists eye for the inovative and beautiful...And so does that husband of yours! But these weren't my absolute as usual I'm the odd duck who doesn't "get it" Lol! Love Vanna

Courtney ~ French Country Cottage said...

You just never know what to expect. All of your posts are awesome. I love that vignette you put together and that chippy storage cabinet is drool worthy! Here's to another year of amazing projects.

Great post! I love all the projects from this year, but my favorite would have to be the fan towel rack! So unexpected (and that's what makes it so fabulous)!

ℳartina @ Northern Nesting said...

Hi Rosemary! I haven't been blogging for even a whole year so I missed some of your posts. Thanks so much for sharing them in this post so I can go back and see them. I saw this post over at French Country Cottage.
