Favorite Projects of 2010

Yes, another "Best of 2010" post.  Let's get on with it!

Since I didn't start blogging until last summer, I don't have a full year of projects to look back on, but here is a few of my favorites (in no particular order):

I finally find the right fabric to pull together the living room.  Full TUTORIAL on how to make these easy valances.  If you can cut and sew a straight line, you can make these too!

Love the catalog, not the prices!  Gather ye craft store coupons and make this stylish bulletin board.

Gutting your kitchen?  Got a Habitat Restore in your area?  I love these message boards made from old cabinet doors.

I finally clear the clutter and raise the eyebrows of a thrift store clerk with this mantel make-over.

MY MOST POPULAR POST THIS YEAR:  I cured the cat scratch fever plaguing a pair of antique chairs.

Natural fabrics were BIG this year, but I buck the burlap trend and opt for smooth linen with these Christmas pillows.

Yup, I pulled this one from the curb!  She had a solid body, great lines and didn't deserve the trash heap yet.

I thought everyone would laugh at this one, but I bet there were a few people who started rummaging through their underwear drawer after reading this post.

A friend building her own photography studio finally kicks me in gear to fix up an old garage sale find.

I blow the budget on a powder room makeover, but it wasn't on new lighting!
