Sharing is caring!

I hope you have all enjoyed a wonderful Holiday Season with friends and family. I have been enjoying some down with family after a very busy month!

This is my second year putting together a top 10 projects post and I really enjoy seeing what was the most popular with my readers.

It also gives me an idea of what you may want to see in 2018. I have so many great things already lined up including a fun New Year Giveaway next week, so stay tuned for that!

Here are the Top 10 Projects of 2017 on Our Crafty Mom:

10. How To Turn An Old Book Shelf Into A DIY Bar Cart

If you have visited Our Crafty Mom before, you know I love to refinish furniture. This roadside find started out life as an old book shelf.

With Silver Metallic Paint and decorative molding this piece was transformed into a small bar cart.

I was so surprised to see this post received over 308,000 views on Hometalk! Definitely my most popular post this year!


One of the things I learned from reviewing the top posts over the past year is readers like projects that they can duplicate quickly and easily!

It is great to look at the beautiful home decor magazines or television shows, but let’s face it, not everyone can afford to decorate like that. However, we can make pretty things on a budget!

I hope you enjoyed looking over the top 10 projects from 2017. I cannot thank you enough for your support and I look forward to sharing even more fun projects with you in the New Year!

Please come back Monday for an exciting giveaway that will help you get clean and organized in 2018! You will not want to miss this!!
