My 5 Favorite Posts of 2013

I recently shared the Top 5 Reader’s Posts of 2013, and today I am sharing my 5 favorite posts of 2013.


As my blog continues to evolve, so do I and it’s fun to see the variety of projects I have worked on and created this year.

Here are 5 of my favorite projects in no particular order, enjoy!

5.  Mason Jar Chandelier – I bought this baby for a mere $5 at a thrift shop and it turned out to be the perfect lighting above our wedding sweetheart table.


4. Nautical Ship Helm Wreath – Okay, this project was so easy it felt like cheating but I LOVE it. In fact, I even made a nautical Christmas wreath from another ship wheel. 


3. Wood Planked Coffee Table – This may have been one of the easiest furniture transformations, but it is also one of my favorites. In fact, I almost wish we never sold it. Good news is I can always make another one like it.


2. Our Handcrafted Wedding - This post shows photos from our DIY wedding which was A LOT of work, but soooo worth it! I may be a Nathey now, but Murphy’s law sure took over that day, yet it turned out beautiful regardless :)

1. Mason Jar Wall Storage with Vintage Yardsticks - This is the first upcycled project I did that I was super proud of. As a DIY blogger it’s often difficult to come up with fresh ideas that haven’t already been done countless times. I know mason jar organizers are nothing new, but I hadn’t seen them on yardsticks before and I love the way it turned out. This project also wound up being my first Etsy sale.

It was fun to look back on some of my favorite posts and I hope you enjoyed it too.
