Favorite Projects of 2012

As we get ready to head into 2013, I thought I would take today to highlight my favorite projects from 2012.

We’ve had a very busy year, especially once our house was finished and we could start moving in.

In no particular order, below is a recap of my very favorite projects from 2012.

We love our painted stripes. They totally transformed our entryway!

Our painted secretary– such a great transformation!

I also did my first big sewing project with our Breakfast Nook Curtains.  Although, they’re about to make an appearance in a different room.

And I loved the outcome of my painted sewing machine table.

One of my favorite free projects was easily the burlap and stick welcome banner. It’s still hanging up! 🙂

Possibly the most exciting “big” project we accomplished this year was the breakfast nook bench. It’s amazing how much it has changed the space and I absolutely can’t wait to finish the room in 2013!

The living room sign was also an awesome project.

You all know how excited I was for our kitchen shelves!

Our breakfast nook also received another update when I transformed the current dresser into a two toned beauty. See how I did it here.

Don’t forget- starting January 1st, my new site will go live and The Wood Grain Cottage will come to life! I’ll see you there!
