Ahhh! It is always so hard and so nerve wrecking to pick the top 10. This year we actually have a top 11. We had a tie, then I thought we broke the tie, then we had another tie. Needless to say, narrowing it down was HARD. I want you to know that even if you didn’t make the top 11, the guest judges and I were blown away by all of your entries. The level of creativity was mind blowing. I loved looking through them all. You are all DIY rock stars in my book.
Before we move on to the top projects, let’s quickly discuss how this works. At the bottom of the post there is a place where you can vote for your favorite. You can do this ONCE A DAY until Saturday night (January 20th). The project with the most votes will win the prize pack provided by Home Depot and Ryobi Power Tools. I will announce the winner on Monday, January 22nd.
Alright, drum roll please……..
(in no particular order)
#1. Hidden Storage Under Stairs
Diane, from In My Own Style, made good use of the wasted space under her stairs by adding a storage room. It is disguised by decorative molding. Head over to her blog to see the full tutorial!
#2. DIY Gabion Walls
Karen wanted to install some gabion walls to help with her sloping yard. When she couldn’t find a landscaper willing to tackle the project, she figured it out herself! Her story is quite amazing.
#3. Faux Drawer Dresser
Shara, from Woodshop Diaries, created this dresser that functions surprisingly different than you might first suspect! How fun is that?!

I love a good before and after! I didn’t even recognize this bathroom after Christina, from Christina’s Adventures, was done with it! SO much better :)

Mysha, from Remington Avenue, turned IKEA pieces into a custom built in bookcase!

Bobbi built this dresser to fit a little nook in their bedroom. I am so impressed with the workmanship! Who wouldn’t love all that custom storage!
