The Year in Review

The year flew by, and I forgot how much I accomplished around my home this past year! 

Here is a quick recap of my favorites from 2011...

I renovated our guest room/storage area - which entailed organizing, buying mattresses, throwing out junk, and finding the floor!!!   You will never, ever, ever see a "before" of this room.  Just try and imagine the very worst pile of junk, ever.  Sort of like 'hoarders,' but with items of less value.

Quite pleased with the new room!


I added a bit of turquoise to my family room - and am happy with the updated look!  I desperately needed to throw out some of the red.



I also did a little sewing - finally completing window treatments for my gray living room....


Here are some ghastly "before and after" photos of this room from back when it was kelly green.


My ever-helpful-son and I built a new bed for my zinnias...




So thrilled with how this bed turned out - here is a tutorial.


Last summer, I sewed a few pillows for my daughter's new dorm room....

I also spent many hours rehabbing the rental home that we own- trying to update the house to put it on the market. 

I shared many of our projects from our rental house here.

Somehow, I was able to squeeze in a little time to paint art!  The art technically is not an update around my home, but typically does go on my walls until it sells!


Such fun!

Have a wonderful 2012!
