10 of your favorite posts in 2017

The first couple of weeks of January is always full of favorite posts.

From favorite renovations to favorite diy projects to favorite inspirations.
And I always like to share my favorite posts along with yours. 

Today it is all about Your favorites. 
My friend Cami put together an amazing group of bloggers and we are all sharing our top 10 readers favorites today.

The top 30+ home and DIY posts of 2017

These are the posts from 2017 that you seemed to love the most. 
Renovations take the top spots- followed by inspirations.

 I didn't post these in the most popular post order-
 just from the post date starting in January.
And I am including just a couple extras that are Christmas.
Most all of my Christmas posts are right up here with the same amount of love
but I didn't include those in the top 10 because
I generally share the top holiday posts separately.

this post about the kitchen and simple things you can do to refresh and renovate it was a popular one.

Who doesn't love a little bit of blue and white?
