2012–A Year in Review

It is always fun to look back at the past year and review some of the things you were able to accomplish. Some years are better than others…and lets face it…some years you just want to shut the door on and never revisit.

When I was looking over this past years projects it reminded me of just how much work we have put into our home…and it made me tired…really tired. I hope I didn’t bore you with all the home improvements! But Mr. Idea Room and I decided it was high time to just “GET. IT. DONE. ALREADY!” We are SOOO close. And I couldn’t be happier. These projects just seem to be never-ending and I am so glad that I can see the end in sight.


Anyways…just thought it might be fun to share with you the most popular Idea Room posts of the past year.  Now…these are the projects that have received the most traffic according to my Google Analytics.

Without any further ado, I present TOP 12 Idea Room Posts of 2012…

    All your posts are always so pretty. I could never pick just one as a favorite, though I do love that hair tool cabinet. That thing is fabulous!! I think you have such a great mix of things you share. It’s perfect to me :)

    Happy New Year.

    My grandson gave your lemon sugar scrub out as Christmas gifts to his aunts and older girl cousing. We had a lot of fun making it together. I love to see your craft projects and printables. I’m looking forward to seeing all your new ideas this year. Thanks!!!

    I always enjoy the posts about makeovers or renovations the best. Sometimes you have really simple changes that make a huge difference, like putting the legs on a builders cabinet to make it look like it was custom made. Love those ideas and posts, or even how to decide what light fixture to buy. Great ideas, and thanks for sharing!
