We hope with all of our hearts that you have been enjoying this holiday season as much as we are. 2 Bees have been taking a much needed break and have been resting up to recharge our creative batteries. Our time has been well spent visiting family and friends, laughing until we have cried, eating treats that we are absolutely positive have zero fat or caloric counts and planning for the year ahead. It’s hard to believe that at the stroke of midnight we will greet a New Year – 2017. Before we leap ahead, we always like to take a look back at our blogging and business year. Preparing this top 10 post is so much fun and we are always a bit surprised and proud of all that we accomplish in a year. Here are our Top 10 Posts of 2016.

 IKEA Rast Hack Telephone Table

Painted furniture posts are always popular on our blog. This plain IKEA Rast dresser was a bit different in that it needed to be creatively made-over as part of a challenge. We still have a tinge of regret that we sold this piece.


She Shed Makeover Reveal

Even though this post is from just a few weeks ago it seems y’all love she sheds as much as we do! This shed was lovingly named “The Hive” and has already served as a wonderful entertaining spot.

Honestly, we weren’t sure how well received this post would be – because we altered Longeberger baskets. As it turned out you wanted to update your baskets as much as we did! Thank goodness!


DIY Scented Bee Soap

If you have never made your own soaps, we hope that this post encourages you to do so. Very easy and fun project.


Fixer Upper Style on a Budget

The HGTV show Fixer Upper is all the rage. We shared with you how to get the look while staying on budget.


Fabric Pumpkins

This project was created from necessity as we needed some Fall decor. These cute fabric pumpkins were fun to make!


Saltwash Furniture Makeover

Saltwash was a new-to-us product and we were thrilled when we were offered the chance to try it. The finish is a beautiful salty, sun-weathered look.
