Take a look through all of the projects that you have completed this year, I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
Here are few of my favourites. Click on any picture to be taken to the post.
I transformed my entry into a soft and welcoming space.
Created a knock off Pottery Barn plate
And used freezer paper to create a Union Jack cushion – had to get in on the Royal Wedding craze early :)
I created a silhouette gallery wall of my family and included this vintage, linen tea towel for fun.
Painted a 70’s drum table in silver and created a bird sanctuary LOL
March was a month of vinyl and stencilling projects
Spring was beckoning, so I gave my bedroom a fresh new look
In April we celebrated my daughters birthday and celebrated my bathroom reno. This is the project that I am most proud of as I did most of it myself; tiling, flooring, moulding, painting and created a really nifty shelf, perfect for small spaces.
I had fun creating this sunburst mirror from paint sticks and skewers
MayI redecorated my daughters bedroom, repurposing a king size headboard to create a daybed, stencilling a floor cloth and a damask pattern for the wall.
With the warm weather around the corner, I finished my patio makeover, you really must see the before!
June was a month of crafts, upcycling several items.
A side table from a candlestick and old table top
A tote bag from an old skirt
Recovered chairs with modern fabric
Since I had updated my daughters room, my son could not be left out
I made my own rustic herb crates
Updated an old trunk that was being stored in the garage
created a savings bank from an old shadow box
I updated an ugly $10 coffee table to something more modern
Created my own version of the Ballard Designs moulin cube
Made a rustic looking monogram with an old clock frame
And redecorated my bedroom. This is the easiest headboard ever; two large canvases, some batting and fabric stretched over them. Because it’s so lightweight, it’s easy to hang and change.
I made peacock feathers out of vinyl to update my lampshades; easily replaced when I grow tired of them
After 9 years, I finally made over my walk in closet
An old cutlery chest became the perfect place for remote controls and drink coasters
I learned how to split a letter and created several of these to sell
OctoberLast year I created horizontal stripes in the dining room; I hated them instantly but lived with them until I couldn’t live with them any longer. A fresh coat of paint and I kissed those mind blowing stripes away.
With the purchase of my new to me DSLR, I had to have a camera bag, so I made one
Discovering that brass is back, I found this fantastic partridge for $3.
I got an early start on Christmas decorating
A simple Christmas craft
I incorporated purple into my existing Christmas decorations for an update
Once again, I reorganized my craft room to try to make some order of the chaos
Always a very busy month for me, it was a little quiet in the home decor front. I did manage a couple of projects like this Trina Turk cushion knock off
And a giant Christmas kissing ball
Happy new year!
