2014 Favorites

It's that time of year.

When bloggers share their "best of" for the previous year.

I don't know if these are my best, but they are my favorites.

And ones that I managed to get a fairly decent picture of.

And they are all paint projects.

Because that's what I do.

I paint stuff.

And as I look at the collage I notice something . . .

that my wood round coffee tables are not painted.

But the wheels are.

Does that count?

Missing from the collage is this table:

I painted it when I was experimenting with now many projects I could get done with one bag of Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint - Typewriter.

I also did this, this, and this.

And that's not all. I haven't even posted about some of them yet.

I used the Typewriter milk paint for this little cubby.

It may be my favorite project of the year.

Well, except for this little ol' thing . . .

I wish you could see how beautiful it is in person!

I did a lot of milk painting this year.

It's hard to pick one project over another.

But it's easy to pick Dried Lavender as my favorite Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint color.

I did another dresser in Dried Lavender.

I'm not sure which one I like better. 

They both sold very quickly!

I sold this secretary back in November.

I miss this beauty.

Maybe I should have kept it.

The milk paint on my hoosier cabinet held up perfectly.

But it's ok if it doesn't.

because then it will be even more perfect.

I can't forget about this little thing either.

Still so pretty after all these months . . .

It's such a great piece of furniture. 

The perfect size for the little cottages in my neighborhood.

The last project I selected is not even in my house.

My friend Laurie and I painted and hung these frames gallery style to show off her children's art projects.

I love it.

The amazing art helps don't you think?

And the perfect funky green color.

Do you remember another project that I should have included?

If you want to spend a few hours perusing my posts from 2014 you are certainly welcome to!

Or, you could just go make something wonderful . . .

P.S. if you want to share your own favorite project from 2014, I would love to see it! Just put your link in the comments. Please.

You have been busy!

I painted a lot in January and February, but haven't painted anything in ages. Hmm - what could I paint?

Happy New Year
