This week, renovations, conversions and before and after projects reigned supreme, securing all but one place in our top 5 posts. It is great to see our UK audience behind such projects, as it shows that salvaging history and reuse are so high up on our priority lists. This week, we hope you felt full of inspiration and ideas to tackle your own DIY or restoration projects.

So, without further ado, we present to you our top 5 posts for the first week of December..
