Seriously, what did we do before Pinterest? It’s not only a great way for the HGTV.com editors to stay on top of design, craft, entertaining and gardening trends, it also lets us know what you guys are interested in so we can tailor our content to suit it.
So, needless to say, we keep a close eye on the photos HGTV fans pin and the ensuing comments — we love feedback! Wondering which 35 HGTV images were most pinned (and repinned…and repinned) in 2012? Check em out then feel free to pin away to your own boards or leave comments letting us know why that photo is one of your faves.
All 35 images are stars but here are 6 stand-outs:
Not surprisingly, beautiful indoor spaces, like this chic and restful bedroom by Sarah Richardson, topped the list:
Dreamy outdoor rooms were also big. HGTV fans love how John Gidding turned the under-used corner of a deck into a party-ready outdoor lounge:

HGTV fans also loved the idea of using chalkboard paint to fake a fireplace for the holidays or to visually warm up a space all winter long:
New uses for old things are always popular. After all, why throw something away when you can just remake it? Pinners fell for this project for turning old sweaters into a wardrobe-updating scarf:
And, as we all know pinning is hard (thirsty!) work — which explains why pinners can’t get enough cocktail recipes. This Almond Joy Martini (yum!) combines two favorite indulgences: chocolate and booze.
So, tell us: Are these some of your favorites? If not, what sort of images or ideas would you like to see more of in 2013?
