I’ve been reading a lot of “Year in Review” blog posts…a great look back at some really inspiring projects out there in blogland!
I started thinking about a couple of mine—and was surprised at how many of my own projects I’d forgotten all about!
So I thought it might be fun to
RE-share them with you too!
But I’m going to start with one from Nov 2012 and something I never thought I’d be doing…TAKING A SPACE IN AN ANTIQUE MALL. What a surprise–that I did it, that it went so well as to expand in this year, and the many projects it propelled! Like~ building this new display cabinet from odd parts and its outcome!
~found me constructing a dresser-hutch for my very 1st G-G-nephew Brody.
~Then I finished off another children’s cabinet for my cousin’s little baby girl Emma before traveling to Atlanta to deliver it AnD take a little birthday getaway! Woo-hoo!
I decided to make several changes in my mother’s master br as a surprise while she took a winter’s rest in Florida with a friend! It started with a fire place…
During the year I worked on a variety of projects, big & small~
- My vintage White Globe sconces
- Princes Aleigha’s lamp
- A thrift store lamp and an anaglyptic-covered shade
- A lace-y chandelier
- A vintage bed lamp re-fashioned
- the Atlanta trip windows
- my auction mirror
- making a mirror from cabinet doors
- a decoupaged chalkboard
- two more decoupaged chalkboards
And there were lots of miscellaneous projects….
But you all know my very favorite thing is construction!
Hmmm, I guess I make a lot of benches ; D
- The other half of the 1st Craig’s List dresser
- The neighbor’s curbie
- A quilted slip-covered curbie!
- The ReStore “bench”
- Saving history!
- The 2nd Craig’s List dresser
- The sewing cabinet bench
- The Christmas built-in banquette
reviving some curbies, an old camp chair, rattan chair makeovers, a thrift store dresser and bed re-furbished, the farm table, the outdoor china hutch, a 2nd Craig’s List dresser re-do, a decoupaged dresser, a bit more decoupage, re-working a curbie, Grandpa’s rockers, the antq mall armoire,
And of course–charity projects.
2 Hall Trees for 2 charities, The Habitat for Humanities Hall Tree and children’s cubby. And one more currently in the works for mom’s neighbor who is battling breast cancer, but I haven’t posted on any of it yet.
It felt like I was so busy all year, but it’s only 50’ish projects!
I did leave out a handful or so because I abandoned them (-didn’t like how they were taking shape, but I’ll come back to them…). There were also many “other projects” that occurred throughout the year not listed above…
