Best of 2015: My 15 favorite posts from 2015

 

best of 2015I have been blogging under the name “A Wandaful Thing” for slightly over a year now and it’s been a lot of fun.

The following posts are my top 15 favorites for 2015.  These posts (and those responsible for them) inspired me, helped me, challenged me and impressed me.

Without further adieu…I hope you enjoy them as much I as did.

  1. Farmhouse Master Bedroom redo from Prodigal Pieces – so many vintage pieces – LOVE IT!!

2.  DIY Bathroom Vanity by Shanty 2 Chic – this post comes complete with downloadable building plans.DIY-Bathroom-Vanity-Shanty2Chic I simply adore this idea as my “only” bathroom is about this size and it has been hard to find a small vanity that will fit. I hope I am able to try this project in 2016.

3. This inspiration board from is from my friend Amelia at You Can Always Start Now I am envious of how full her board is but also inspired to make one of my own.

15.  Last but not least a Pumpkin Party Cooler from who other than Martha Stewart. You don’t need a fairy godmother to turn a pumpkin into an ice bucket. This is such a fantastic idea, I will definitely be doing this next year at Halloween.
