TOP 12 of 2010

Top-ten lists are cropping up like crazy across Bloglandia this time of year. Well, who wants to be left out? Not me! That’s why I have compiled a Top Twelve (even better!) list just for you. My very favorite before and after project from each month.

It was like, way hard to choose. July in particular was an especially good month. But these are the ones that tickled my fancy the very most, and my fancy does like to be tickled. That sounded gross. Let’s get on with it then, shall we?


JANUARY 





One of my all time favorite kitchen makeovers. Great kitchen from an even greater gal, Kat.

MARCH 





I love that this was done for so cheap, and similar items cost thousands of buckaroos in catalogs!

APRIL 





I never would have pegged myself in the past as a lover of things vintagey/shabby chic, but this bedroom made me turn the corner.

Representin’ the upholsterers, yo! This chair might just be my favorite chair this whole year.

(And did you notice how the actual words “before” and “after” got a makeover of their own throughout the year too? Ha! They started off rather large and obnoxious, didn’t they? I apologize to your eyes. )

Well that about wraps it up. But first I would like to say a BIG, FAT, HEARTY THANK YOU to you! Even after 880+ posts, you still manage to impress and amaze me everyday. I couldn’t do it without you and your unending genius and creativity and the projects that you so graciously share with me.




And a MEGA HEARTY THANK YOU to all my super awesome and probably extremely good-looking readers! I couldn’t do this without you either. Well, I guess technically I could, but it sure wouldn’t be any fun. Thanks for keeping me going and keeping me laughing with all your great comments and emails and support. You quite thoroughly rock.




I hope you have the Happiest New Year Yet!





See you in 2011!
