Favorite projects of 2009

chair makeover - $10 yard sale chair







bed makeover





painted kitchen


here is the "before" of the kitchen, when we moved into the house in April. I love brown, but it was taking away from the pretty countertops and backsplash.


I don't have any major plans for painting around the house in 2010, but maybe I'll find some more thrifty pieces of furniture that can be fixed up with paint!





I'm sharing this at The Shabby Chic Cottage









and Miss Mustard Seed's link party

Wow, Anna...nice work! That chair makeover is incredible. I stay away from those 1970's pieces, but you have shown me that I am a fool. :) I love how you updated it, yet made it look like it was from a better furniture era than the 70's. Make sense? And I love the red bed and repainted kitchen. Much better!
