DIY home projects that made for a lot of comments...{who would think}?

Yesterday I shared with you a recap of my favorite top diy home projects.  How about I share with you the MOST viewed posts on my blog to date! Then go on to the most commented posts.
Thanks Rosemary for the inspiration on this post!
This is not something I would have done or thought to share.
Our Home tour with 8,099 views to date.
You may view that post 

I keep this post on my sidebar and I still get a lot of views.  Perhaps you may want to put a little home tour post together of your own. Everyone loves Home tours!
{thank you}
Now I will go on to show some more of my MOST viewed posts.
Second, was my Chalk paint posts,
that you may view

Next, and surprisingly was my recent
Holiday Magazine copy cat challenge...

 It sure was a HOPPING party.

Then there was our 2011 Christmas mantel....

Now how about I share with you some of the most commented posts.
Some I am not including, if they are NOT project related, etc.
I have blabbed about a lot of things and have had thought provoking coffee talks, that have also gathered a lot of thought and comments.

Some are redundant and are the same as most viewed, so I will go to the next ones...

My Trash to treasure project received 116 comments.
You may view that in full 

My Mod podge project

Whimsy in the garden was a big one too...

Funny to see how much has changed since then...

I am starting to see a trend here...y'all really like my outdoor posts!

Some of my tablescapes have also received a lot of comments,
this Vivacious red being one of the tops..

You may see that post'

I think this one shocked me the most...

at 90 comments on a lampshade that took me all of 5 minutes to come up with.
To think I was almost embarrassed to hit publish on this one.

I have to say this was a lot of fun digging back in my archives.
Hope you newbies of mine had fun looking back too, these are posts you have never seen before, and some of them are from my early on days of blogging.
Fun to also see my photography improve some, and my decor LOL!
This table here was a little wire rack I purchased at Walmart and spray painted it.  It did me good for the time I had it!

I love your new header Debbie! Look at your cute little face up there:)

All your projects are always so inspirational but my all time favorite ever was reading about when you left the can of red paint on the garage floor and your hubby rolled over it...I know it was way back when but that was hilarious.

Have a wonderful New Years!!!
