We thought we’d jump on the bandwagon and share our favorite At The Picket Fence posts from 2011, a few were your favorites as well!
Up first Heather shares her top favorite three posts:
One of my favorite posts and also the most viewed post At The Picket Fence is the tutorial for my DIY Kitchen Cabinet Feet!
After they were featured on apartment therapy, Toby Fairley Design and multiple pins on pinterest they’ve become quite the popular project in blogland. They are still holding up well on my cabinets and it’s always fun to tell people, when they come over, that they were made from curtain finials!
Without a doubt my FAVORITE post/project this year though, was my Kitchen Island Makeover! I still can’t believe sometimes that my new island started out as a humble, worn out builder grade oak island. It too is standing the test of time and the legs haven’t fallen off yet…that’s success for a DIYer!
My last favorite post here was also one of my firsts and had nothing to do with carpentry or painting…and everything to do with chocolate! My Chocolate Nutella Lava Cakes are not only popular with readers but absolutely, positively, beyond delicious! It’s on of my all time favorite photographs I’ve ever taken as well!
Next Heather’s sharing some of Vanessa’s favorite posts:
Having always claimed to, “not be very “crafty”, Vanessa put that rumor to rest when she created her gorgeous Corn Husk Wreath! This too has been a very popular post on Pinterest and one we’ve seen lots of copies of!
Vanessa also fufilled a long time desire when she transfered her 2 outdated brass chandeliers into lovely updated beauties. Proving that dramatic transformations do not have to be costly! Vanessa has a great tutorial to show how to Makeover a Brass Chandelier!
And last but certainly not least, Vanessa shared her stunning door and front porch with us at the Doors and Porches Christmas Party! We all agreed it could have been in a magazine and is going to be featured soon on a website for Front Doors!
We’ve enjoyed so much sharing our homes, projects, recipes and hearts with you this year! We can’t wait to see what 2012 holds for us!
We also wanted to remind you that Inspiration Friday will be taking a one week hiatus…and for a very good reason!
Our entire clan will all be together in a few short days at our parents property in the Southwest! We will be keeping you informed of our time together through some fun posts and lots of pictures, so be sure to stay tuned for updated posts on here, as well as following as on Facebook where you never know what might show up on our wall! Several iphones, ipads and laptops in one location could mean lots of sneaky fun photos and wall posts popping up from time to time. 😉
We also will be spending some time cooking with Dad and will share a few of our New Years Eve recipes…so stay tuned for our family vacation, where you’ll see the gals At The Picket Fence TOGETHER for the first time this year!
Love to all…hope you continue to enjoy time with family and friends this week!
