The end of 2012 is here and it is very very close to the one year anniversary of this little blog. So I'm going to spend the next week highlighting some of my favorite stuff - posts, furniture, projects - from 2012. These are not the most viewed posts, just some of my favorites. I'll do something with the most viewed posts later. By the time I finish I will be ready to celebrate my anniversary. Maybe with cake!
Let's get started! To see more about any of these furniture redos click either the picture or the highlighted text.
Last December I bought my first can of chalk paint. Annie Sloan Arles. This was the color chosen by the friend that I was doing a project for. We were restoring an old (very old) table to give to her mother. The dark wax turned the rather weird yellow color to a beautiful mustard color.
and this headboard - A funny thing happened on the way to getting it finished so it got two posts, post 1 and post 2.
Another project for a friend was this slipcovered daybed made from twin beds/headboards. This one got two posts, too. The original post shows what this room looked like before we did a miracle transormation!
I love this old radio cabinet that I turned into a sewing/craft cabinet.
Then I made a new dining room table. For FIVE DOLLARS!
And even though I made this bed a long time ago, I posted about it this year. And it's one of my favorite things, so I had to include it.
I saw some of these dresser planters on Pinterest and had to make one for myself. The CeCe Caldwell paint held up really well. The dresser, not so much. So I will be making another one this spring.
This table was hard to part with. Really wish it had been for me!
And last but not least - my 6 month china cabinet makeover. What $50 and a lot of hard work and citri-strip will get you!
Thanks for reminiscing with me. It's been a great year. I'm glad to have become acquainted with all of you whether you are one of the 46 people who read my blog come rain or come shine, or if you are just stopping by from Pinterest or a blog party.
I wish you and yours a loving and healthy 2013!
Make something wonderful today!
