1) New Hobby Garage
and it looks like it has always been here connected to our 15 year old house! I use one bay as my space to paint furniture and do projects. Hubby uses his bay for a hobby pick up truck. We even have attic storage so furniture pieces and supplies can be stored out of sight and kept neat. A real dream come true for both of us. You can see more on this project HERE.
2) Mud Room
A by-product of our new garage, this space used to be our tiny workroom (long and skinny). Since the new garage was added and our 'stuff' moved into it, this space became empty. What to do? I decided to make it into a mud room. Very handy! You can see more on this project HERE.
3) Vintage Masonic Columns
ese four columns are special because they were a gift from my son. He knew that we loved architectural items with history and interest. These certainly fit the bill, besides, we are known as column hoarders...we own 11 of them now. You can see more on this project HERE.
4) MacKenzie-Childs Style Sconce
Since I am a lover of all things Courtly Check and MacKenzie-Childs, this project was one that makes me smile every time I view it. After all, it IS the coolest sconce ever! You can see more on this project HERE.
5) Guest Bedroom Make-Over
6) My Beautiful Buffet
This is one of those projects that is just fun and makes a statement in our home as soon as you walk through the door! It takes an ordinary house stairwell to the next level. This is also where you get to see my young-and-cute-handy-dandy-handyman who makes a lot of my dreams come true. No his is not my hubby, he is more like our son from different parents. He is one very talented man. You can see more on this project HERE.
8) My Organized Storage Room
After fighting this room for 10 years, I finally did something about it. It's a wonderful space that I think every home should have. You can see more on this project HERE.
9) Master Bedroom Make-Over
For the sake of change. A place where I wake up every morning and want to be in...A real retreat. You can see more on this project HERE. Though, things have moved around in there some so you would need to also see this post HERE.
10) My 2012 Winter Mantel
With a mantel as huge as mine, it certainly is a challenge to decorate and fill. How do I top this? Well, you will have to stick around to see. However, this was fun to put together and a joy to see...especially at night. You can see more on this project HERE.
That is the best of 2012 for me. I hope that you have enjoyed and been inspired by my projects and plan to stick around in 2013...I have plenty more surprises up my sleeves!
