So, here are my top 10 projects for 2007. I had such fun doing them all - some where quite the challenge and some were very simple but I loved completing each one!
This is the bedroom redo for the boys - we went for a travel/safari theme
here is the baby's nursery I did
here is one of my favorites. It's an old vanity that was rescued from one of those beach houses in the Outer Banks of NC. My sister used to live there and she got it for me. I painted it white and then sanded it down A LOT to give it a distressed look
this is an old french chair that I picked up curbside - CURBSIDE!! for free - they were throwing it away. Aside from needing to be refinished, it was in great shape. This is one of two that I got. Right now I've got them in my dining room. It's a little more formal so they're stained in a cherry stain but I'm thinking of painting them white. what do you think??
here's a pretty little sideboard. When I got it at the flea market, it was a little rough. I saw great potential though so I bought it, brought it home and gave it a little love (and white paint of course)!
another curside find! It amazes me what some people throw away, but hey, keep throwin' cuz I love to find it and bring it home!! I painted this one white too and now it's my favorite little letter writing desk.
I found this lovely at The Old Luckets Store in Luckets, VA. I painted it and put a pretty ballerina print inside. The rose paper it's mounted on is actually just some pretty wrapping paper I found!
here is by far the most time consuming project I did. I got this wing chair - for free - and decided to reupholster it. It was the first time I have ever tried to do this so please excuse this reupholstery rookie - LOL!! Anyway, it was quite the challenge but lots of fun! Can you tell that I LOVE toile??!!
a cute little fan that I found at the flea market. It wasn't a very nice color though - kind of a yucky brown metal. I fixed that though, I took it apart and painted it then put it back together again
and last but not least, an old wicker tray that I found at the flea market. I painted it white and then decoupaged some pretty wrapping paper to the inside. I then added some grosgrain ribbon and voila - a cute little tea tray!
I hope you enjoyed the little tour of projects! Have a great weekend all!
