Year End Review Part 3, Popular Furniture Posts

Tonight, I'm sharing my top ten furniture posts, according to stats.  Redesigning vintage furniture is one of my passions.  I also love to give newer pieces a vintage feel.  So, here are the redesigns that seemed to get your attention.  CHIPPY STORAGE is actually number one, but I already shared it in the last post.  Once again, I was surprised by some of these.  Several of my personal favorites aren't on the list.  Click on the title to review.

Number ten, VANITY BENCH

Number nine, MIX IT UP

Number eight, FRENCHY and GRAPHIC

Number seven, WHITE on WHITE


Number five, NICE DETAILS

Number four, LACED AGAIN

Number three, HAVE A SEAT


Number one, PLASTERED

Okay, next I will be sharing some of my favorite finds.  I did a lot of hunting and gathering.
