Most Popular Projects Of 2012

The year is winding down and it is a good time for me to reflect back on some of the projects that I had worked on this year.  It feels kind of good to see what was accomplished as I make goals for the new year.

I thought I would take this time to share with you those projects that have been the most popular.  If you missed them when they were originally posted, you may enjoy taking a look at them now.

Here is a list of the top twelve most popular project for 2o12:

1.  How To Paint An Upholstered Chair – This is the most recent project and maybe the most surprising.  I know that when I discovered you could paint upholstery I was taken aback.  It really is a nice way to change a look quickly….fairly quickly.
