Today I am joining Rhoda's top 10 party. She has the BEST house, it looks like it is right out of a magazine. I LOVE all the colors that she uses and her office is the cutest one I have ever seen! I joined her party last year, you can see my top 10 projects of 2008 here.
This year I did some smaller projects so I will show our smaller projects. Right before Christmas I decidedI I was going to start repainting some rooms in our house. I had some darker colors and I wanted to lighten them up and use some lighter colors. I started in our Sunroom which went from red to a light sage green and now I am working on our kitchen (crazy I know!!) and I am still working on that project but I LOVE the way it looks so far!
This was the year of the monograms for me! I LOVE things with our last name and with our initial and I seem to do a lot of monogram projects. I also love trash to treasure things, I love getting things at rummage sales are re-doing them.
This one was fun to do, I took an old window that I got for $3 at a yard sale painted it and put scrapbook paper behind the glass. I actually did two of these, one is in my dining room and the other is in our living room. I like it because it's big and it looks great hanging behind our couch! I got this idea from Carrie and Buzzings of a Queen Bee.
I put this monogram that I got from Etsy on a vase that I got at Wal-Mart. I always keep a candle in it and I added candy corn for cuteness!
I got this table for $30 at an antique store. I painted it and distressed it using Country Living caromal colours, this is the best paint I have painted so many things with this color as you will see. I LOVE this green color
I did this quick mini pumpkin display for Halloween.
Another monogram project-ha ha!
And another, I got this monogram from Etsy and put in on a square mini platter that I got at Wal-Mart. I also want to get a few more of these monograms because I think they would make great gifts!
I LOVE this chest, we keep it in our living room and it holds blankets. My Dad got it for me for Christmas several years ago and it seems like I paint it about every other year. This year I painted it green and added (what else?) a monogram.
Ok this is getting embarrasing, ANOTHER monogram I painted this shelf in our living room this year for a new and fresh look (as you can tell I also LOVE the color green!)
This is a similar project I painted this wooden crate and added our last name and the year we were married.
I did this little arrangement for Christmas. I actually made two of these for our dining room table. Super cute and they lasted a couple of weeks!
This is a picture of our Sunroom I painted it right before Christmas and my husband Graig is now re-doing the hardwood floors.
I hope you enjoyed looking at my 2009 projects! I can't wait to see what everyone else did in 2009, thanks again Rhoda for hosting this top 10 tour!!
