Sometimes I don’t feel like I get very much done but after reviewing my blog posts of projects in 2013 I wonder how I was able to accomplish so much. I hope that you will enjoy looking at some of my projects that you might have missed. Click on the bright green text to go directly to the post about each project.
My most viewed post of the year was my kitchen renovation that I actually did the previous year. It was quite a labor of love but worth every bit of effort that I put into it. My nephew came in the kitchen this week and said “Every time I walk in here I have to check to make sure I’m in the right house!”
It is quite a dramatic difference! You can click here to see all of the photos and progress.
Another popular post was a tour of our summer cottage – part 1!I still haven’t gotten to part 2 but hopefully will do it soon!
I completed several projects using parts of my grandmother’s piano that my son and I deconstructed.
This old upright was repurposed into this entry table,
and a couple of towel bars.
I still have material left to complete several more projects from the piano parts.
I completed several upholstery projects.
You can read about this one here.
You can see my updated living room furniture here.
These antique oak chairs were updated very quickly and easily. You can get the details by clicking here.
I was delighted with how well this $15 thrift store find turned out. You can read about it here.
I also made a slipcover for my grandmother’s sofa to be used in my son’s apartment. You can read about it here.
I completed several furniture painting projects.
This dresser was painted for my sweet friend’s nursery. You can see the progress here.
I painted this antique music cabinet for the screened porch at our summer cottage.
I painted this bamboo cabinet black and put it in the bunk room at the summer cottage to use for storage.
I decided to have some fun with this table and chairs. You will have to click here to see how ugly they were before!
I am looking forward to the coming year and hope to make a few more major updates to our home and share them with you.
