Oh so many projects this year. Some got completed. Some..not so much. Some are still sitting in my garage. Maybe they'll get done in 2010. Maybe.
This was my favorite project of the year. My craigslist hutch.
It received a pretty coat of white paint, new knobs and countless re-arranging of accessories.
Here is the kitchen before we moved in. Horrible red lights. And a backsplash that wasn't to my liking.
Enter subway tile and schoolhouse lighting. Much better, if I do say so myself.
We lived like this for a few months. It was a little depressing.
The dining room that has become a major pain (in my you know what) as of late. Here is is with the former mid century modern dining set I inherited from my parents.
Sold the set on craigslist and with the profits bought these ugly parsons chairs and a farmhouse table.
Add some white slipcovers and this is what the dining room looks like today:
It is a work in progress....
My second farmhouse table that I also found on craiglist. This one received a coat of paint on the legs and a new stained top. Voila--a new desk!
Not all of my projects were such huge undertakings.
My ebay sconces were a simple enough task.
As were these placemats.
And that my dear friends is Peanut Petunia 2009 in a nutshell. Hopefully, 2010 will bring more finished projects and much more fun!
