Best of Fearfully & Wonderfully Made by Carli 2016

I cannot believe this year is already coming to an end!!!!  What an amazing year this had been for me blogging-wise.  I’ve learned so much and have met soooo many amazing people, friends that I now consider my sisters! I thank you all so very much for your support and readership, for taking the time to leave comments and following along on other social media outlets-you are appreciated!

Today I wanted to share with you my top 6 viewed posts for the year!  Maybe you’ve missed some, so follow me as I recap on this past year!

#1 Cozy Basement Family Room Reveal

Basement family room
For this makeover, my most recent, I was able to transform our basement from cold and useless to cozy and functional.  With help from Raymour & Flanigan, our new sectional, made this space complete!

#2 My Daughter’s Room: Preteen Bedroom Reveal

Teen girls bedroom
Over the summer my daughter went away and I surprised her with a bedroom update in a total of 10 days!  Her open closet has been a hit on Pinterest.

#3 Cabinet Crown Molding:  Fake the Look Without The Fuss

As a part of my “My DIY Kitchen” series, I showed you all how I added “Crown Molding” to my kitchen cabinets without the fuss, using 1×2’s!

#4 How to Style A Mid Century Modern Hutch

In this post I shared with you how I staged this mid-mod hutch to sell and decided to walk you all through the steps, stop-motion style.  This is another post which did well on Pinterest, so I was glad to offer some inspiration!

#5 Deck Refresh:  #Project1Room30Days, The Reveal

Tropical Deck Reveal

1 Room, 30 Days!  Enough said!  In this makeover, I was able to add an extension to my deck, build a corner bench with storage, create outdoor wall decor, added privacy to our basic fence and basically create a place for us to entertain and actually spend time OUTDOORS in 30 Days!

#6 #Fabfallfest:  Fall Home Tour 2016

#FabFallFest:  Fall Home Tour 2016

This fall home tour was so fun, because 1.) I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE fall and 2.) I collaborated with a great group of ladies to bring the #Fabfallfest to fruition.  We not only collaborated on the home tours but we also brought a fun hashtag to IG #Fabfallfest where we asked friends to share their fall decor over the fall season.  I am so looking forward to #Fabfallfest 2017 already!

These results were all based on the number of page views.  I’d love to hear what you think?  Was there a project I tackled that was your favorite?  Let me know in the comments, I’d love to hear from you!  

I have so many plans for this new year, which I will share soon, but I have a few things I need to share with you before this year is over, so be sure to check back!

Until Next Time,
