Hey everyone! Are you excited for the new year? I know I am! 2015 was an exciting year for the blog with a lot new opportunities and growth, and I’m looking forward to an even better 2016! But I wanted to remember the year we’re leaving behind and count down the top 5 DIY projects of 2015!
Top 5 Projects of 2015 on The Painted Hinge
This is a very easy DIY and a great way to get rid of old or outdated nail polish. I really got into upcyling last year; especially when it comes to finding a new use for everyday stuff I would otherwise throw out.
I did this project in the fall so I used nail polish in fall colors, but of course you can use any colors you want! 🙂
This is another easy DIY project that’s great to do with kids! It’s also a great way to use up any leftover paint from past projects.
One of the vintage items I love (maybe a little too much!) are old bottles. But if you’re
cheap thrifty like I am, you buy them at flea markets where they probably haven’t been cleaned beforehand. I used to have a heck of a time cleaning them, so I searched online for some tips to make it easier. This post is a collection of those tips, plus some other great tips my lovely readers shared in the comments section.
This is one of those posts whose popularity surprised me; especially considering I pulled it out of my keister at the very last minute (hey, just being honest about it). I mean, it is just so ridiculously simple I was sure people were going to say “Really? You posted THAT as a DIY project?” But one thing I’ve learned blogging this year is to never assume how popular a post is going to be. I’ve had some posts that I thought would be extremely popular that had fallen flat, and then ones like this one which I didn’t think would do that well but just took off. Sometimes the simplest things are best!
Okay, this isn’t a DIY in of itself, but it can certainly be used as part of a DIY and comes in handy for decorating for any season or celebration! I just started making free printables this year, so I was really happy to see one surpass even my DIY’s as the most popular post of 2015!
I hope you enjoyed my top 5 DIY projects of 2015! Have a safe and Happy New Year and a wonderful 2016!
