Top 2010 Projects- A Year in Review

I can't believe I haven't posted since Christmas.
I really am enjoying just spending time at home with little man and the hubby.
Not being at school every day is soooooo nice.

I'm trying to take advantage of the next two weeks or so that I have left.
Big plans are brewing :)

But I decided while my plans are taking shape, I'd share with you a little 'year in review' post.

First off, I'd like to say a huge Thank you to all my wonderful followers.
I didn't realize when I started this blog last year how much fun it would really end up being.
All of you are so amazing and supportive (not to mention completely inspirational)
Thank you for taking the time to read, comment and be a loyal supporter of my little ole blog.

I really do lurve you guys :)

With that said, here are my top ten projects of 2010...

This is probably my most favorite project I did all year- and most certianly the biggest one.
We ended up being able to tackle this sucker in about two days and it made such a HUGE difference.
I am in love with the blue-grey paint and touches of white everywhere.
I think my favorite part is the new mirror that got a makeover.
Love love love.

Number two: Wooden Pumpkins

I can't completely take credit for this idea but the spin and execution is all mine :)
Blogland was filled with cute pumpkins this year and these were my contribution.
I love the beadboard grooves and the distressed look.
I'm kind of sad that these are all packed away...

Number three: Leaf Placemat Pillows

I was blown away by how quickly these flew across the blog-osphere.
They were so easy and made me happy every time I saw them sitting on my brown couch.
I think these get the award for easiest project of the year.

This is another one of my absolute favorites.
I loved the "Dollar Store Challenge' at the CSI project and when I went to browse the dollar store for ideas, I found these beautiful tiles.
Thus the mirror was born.
I cannot wait to get this back out after Christmas stuff is packed away.

This is the other seasonal pillow I pulled out this year.
I cut some strips from left-over fabric I had and made an easy Christmas tree.
I totally cheated though and used hot glue to secure the tree down.
Me and my sewing machine are not as good friends as the hot glue gun yet.

If you haven't been around my blog long, you might not know yet that I have a complete obsession with cabinet doors (I'm pretty sure I have nearly 100 in my garage).
I use them for ALL kinds of things, including this name plaque.
This was super easy to make, a little paint and vinyl and it was the perfect wedding gift.

This chalkboard door is what really set me off in the blogworld.
It was my first project to be featured on the CSI project and is the one that started me really getting 'out there' to all of you.
I love the blue and turqoise- it hangs right by my door in the garage :)

Number Eight: Pumpkin Seed Art

This project was quickly dubbed the "pumpkin seed challenge' because my hubby initiated a challenge to me while we were out shopping.
It involved the gas station, five dollars and my loot: bags of pumpkin seeds.
I love how it turned out and am crossing my fingers that it will store well until next year.

Number Nine: End Table Makeover

One of my favorite new things I got into this year was redoing furniture.
I adore it.
I fell in love with our local Habitat Restore and that's where I found this gem.
I decided to put it in little man's room so it got a coat of beautiful red.
I love how the black glaze pops out all the details.
This is just one of many furniture redos I got too this year.

This was a project I had been dying to do and I put my own little twist on it for the fourth of July.
Brown coffee filters with dabs of red and blue paint made it the perfect door decor.
I love love how frilly it is.
You'll probably be seeing a new version of this wreath in 2011 too :)

So...there you have it.
Tattered and Inked top projects of 2010.

There were many, many more that you can explore on your own if you'd like.

Once again, thank you so much for all your support in this past year!
 I can't wait to start 2011 with all of you!
