Looking Back 2011

Today I’m doing a quick review of projects for the year of 2011 while I look forward to a looooonnnnnngggggg To-do list for 2012! As I went back to organize this post, I noticed that most of my projects were posted in November. Actually, those were done over several months but were not posted due to computer issues until I finally gave in and purchased a new laptop. Perhaps I can be more prompt in posting in the new year although most of my projects take a long time to complete. I do hope that you all will check back in from time to time to see if I have made any progress.

Perhaps the quickest and easiest project of 2011 was this faux mercury glass lamp.

Another pretty quick project was mounting a TV in my painted secretary.

I shared this bird tablescape too.

I love this vintage floor lamp that I rescued.

I love a bargain and this writing desk was quite a bargain!

A more involved project was the transformation of the settee. I am so pleased with the results.

I saved the best for last. My biggest project of the year involved reworking a vintage dining room set for my sweet friend. It was a lot of work but worth every minute because the transformation was quite dramatic.

I am looking forward to a very busy 2012. I got a new tool for Christmas and I can’t wait to use it!
