It is the end of 2010 already, and time to review our favorite projects for the year! Here are mine in no particular order.
We found this old commercial-type cupboard with sliding doors at an auction, and knew that with its dimensions it would be perfect to house our TV in the living room. This is not our primary TV watching area, so the sliding doors were a bonus. Unfortunately, this cupboard was a mess and had been in a barn for many years. It cleaned up well, and has become a favorite!
I've waited several years to be able to have this green vinyl chair recovered professionally.
I love the new red upholstery!
I also waited several years to trade out my old china cupboard for something I liked better. We found this one that needed refinishing. After Bob refinished it, I lined the inside with fabric.
I love the details!
The project that was probably the most fun was the building of the tree house in our backyard. I had nothing to do with it, but Wyatt and his Papa sure had fun.
He was one happy boy when it was done!
I finally found an alabaster lamp in my price range after looking for a long time. It needed a new shade, so I purchased a self-adhesive one and covered it with my favorite toile fabric that I had bought 10 years ago from a French vendor.
We refinished and recovered a $2 chair purchased at an auction.
I love a pretty paisley fabric.
And finally, I made some red wool pillows from bargain fabric and estate-sale velvet ribbon for the living room.
I'll be joining the following parties to wrap up 2010. Please check out these hostesses for a plethora of inspiration.
