2015 Best of Designed Decor!

I can’t believe we are saying good-bye to 2015 and ringing in 2016 in a matter of days.  I decided to recap 2015 and share with you the Best of Designed Decor.  Some of you have been with me the entire year and some of you are new.  None the less, I think you all will enjoy my best of the best for 2015.  

Best of Designed Decor- 2015 edition

I am going to share with you my top visited posts for 2015.  It was fun to recap this post for you today as I was able to take a look at all that I accomplished this year.  If you are like me, the list is always longer then my time to complete it.  I always feel like I don’t get enough done and maybe that is because my list is bigger than 1 person can manage.  So looking back at all that I did complete was a great reminder for myself that even though I did not get everything off my list, I did get most of it done and I did a lot that was not even on the list.  So always remember to look at the positive and not the negative.  Take time for the small stuff just as you do the big stuff.  And most important is to remember to enjoy every moment like it was the last.

#10 – Turning dressers into Media Centers

Dresser to Media Center

I had buyers remorse after buying these huge dressers.  They sat in my garage for almost a year before I finally made up my mind to transform them.  They turned out better than expected and I am so glad that I was able to turn such a negative into a positive.  You have to click over to read the great story behind them and the seller.  

#9 – Dog Bone Wall Shelf:

I teamed up with Ryobi Nation for this build and was very pleased with how my vision turned out.  Cinnamon also loves her dog bone wall shelf because it holds her leash and she gets very excited when I reach to her shelf to get her leash for our morning walk.  

#8 – Eiffel Tower Dresser:

This Eiffel tower dresser was a custom order from a friend.  She gave me an idea on what she wanted and gave me free creative reign to complete the dresser for her daughters bedroom.  

#7 – French Decoupage Cabinet:

#5 – Guest Bedroom Makeover:

Guest Bedroom Makeover-4

This is my favorite room in my house.  It took me nine months to complete it, and it was well worth the time.  I do work a little slow on my house projects since they take a back seat to my painting furniture for others and the blog.  Remember what I said at the beginning of my post about my list being bigger than me!  

#4 – How to upholster chairs:
