Have you been following the Creative at Home Blog Tour this week? It’s been so fun seeing everyone’s all time favourite blog posts.
And now it’s Day 3 so I guess that means it’s my turn.
So here it goes.
My top pinned post is my How to Use Coconut Oil to Refinish Furniture post
This post became so popular because it’s so simple. And that’s exactly why it’s my favourite too. Normally I spend weeks planning out a post in my head, buying the materials, completing the project and writing the actual post.
But with this post I just happened to find this charming little table at an antique market for only $25. The table only needed a good cleaning (normally the stuff I buy is destined for the dump and needs loads of TLC). I really wanted to bring out the original colour of the old dried out wood. I just happened to have bought some coconut oil that same day, and thought why not try it on the table. It was a total whim, but it worked! It rehydrated the wood and brought out the original walnut colour.
And since I couldn’t really pick just one favourite post, here is my other favorite post.
This was another simple project that made a huge difference in my kitchen. I did it while my husband was at work so I wouldn’t have to listen to him say “this is never going to work”. Did I ever show him!
I love my new pantry door and I no longer have to struggle with it falling off the track on a daily basis. Oh yeah and I gave it a new coat of paint and a handle while I was at it.
