2012...project review

Did you all wonder if I was coming back?
School doesn't start back until the 9th of January for us, needless to say,
 I've been in full vacation mode and have not accomplished a thing.
Thank goodness I have this recap of last year to show you... 


Fish Scale Lamp Shade here using leather and craft paint.

Nailhead Ceiling here, I still love it!


Anthro-A-Pologie Pillow Knock-Off here

DIY Leopard Tray here using a $3 plastic Ikea tray


 'A Pretty Party' for a friend's birthday here

Spring Mantel & Bookcase here
Remember I showed you how to get an inexpensive collection of vases...
Goodwill and Spray Paint


My first Fashion post here.
I'd forgotten how much fun that was, I'm ready to do a new one.

Black Lacquer Table, using my favorite paint here


The most popular post of the year...Brick Herb Markers here
Quick, easy and free!

Our yard decked out for summer, including the potting bench reveal here.


I must have been focused on our summer fun here
 because I wasn't working on projects! :)


The outdoor solar chandelier here

Sally Wheat inspired diy here


Teen Boy's Bedroom Reveal here, this is what we worked on all summer!


Exterior decked out for Fall here

Must be a lot of old brown sofas out there, because this post on ideas
to freshen them up is still a favorite here.


Paint a Rug Challenge - DIY Suzani here

Painted and reupholstered dining room chairs here.
Exactly one year later and the dining room still isn't finished...2013???

We hosted Thanksgiving dinner, our table setting here

Thanks again for hanging out with me, your enthusiasm and support
motivate me to attempt new projects all the time, it wouldn't be nearly as
 much fun without you along for the journey!

I'm excited to share some plans for 2013 tomorrow!

I cannot believe the nailhead ceiling was so long ago, it feels like only a couple of months ago that I was reading all about it. Time definitely flies!
It is great seeing a review of projects; it reminds me of the ones I want to try.

Pam you did so much. I think I met you around your son's room makeover. I am going to use it as inspiration for my son's room. I love the way you style your mantle. I didn't know you do fashion posts. Looking forward to that since we are probably about the same age. I can't wear what those (never had children or C-secion) bodies wear.

You are amazing, and you really accomplished so much last year! The projects you took on we're huge, and completed to perfection. I love the DR ceiling, your son's room and the hutch, oh, and the suzani rug... It is so fun to follow you and see what's next. Best wishes for a happy, productive and healthy new year.

You never cease to amaze me Pam! Every project you have profiled is amazing, you are definitely an inspiration! I look forward to all that you have up your sleeve in the coming year.
My kids don't go back to school until the 7th, so blogging is way on my back burner, next week I am back at it though! Happy 2013 to you my friend!

Sew a Fine Seam said...

I don't remember where I saw the nailhead ceiling but that is the post I found you through! Was it featured somewhere or did I find it on a link party? Anyway, that is the first post I came over on and I remember digging back through your blog for awhile. Then I promptly followed you and the rest is history! So glad we connected, you are a wonderful friend!

Linda said...

You have been one busy lady! I love all of your projects, but your black lacquer table is one of my favorites. I'm dying to try that paint. Looking forward to all you have in store for 2013!
