Best of 2012: July, August, September

Hey friend! 
I am taking a mini blog-break to spend some time with friends and
family, but since you were kind enough to stop by,
please enjoy this week’s rundown of some of my very favorite posts of
2012. I CANNOT WAIT to see what all you creative brains come up with in

As always, JULY is a terribly hard month to choose from. I think everyone gets the most porjects completed in the summertime, but the clear winner was this villa facade attached to a plain stone retaining wall from Better After reader Sheri.

One of my most highly commented on posts came in AUGUST, in the form of this outdated living room set turned porch furniture from Better After reader Amber.  Still stunning!

In SEPTEMBER, I was wowed by Hank at Toshmahal and his amazing ability to draw the inner beauty out of some terribly tragic wood pieces that seemed beyond repair.  Not only did he revitalize them, he shot them into a whole new stratosphere of beautiful.

    I love absolutely everything that Hank did. He’s a master and all of those pieces need to be in my home immediately.

    Those were definitely my favorites from those months, too. Amazing wood work from Hank and that outdoor wall make over… amazing!!

    I had a set of those dated living room furniture myself at one time, they look so much better repurposed for outdoors. I may keep my eyes open and seek out a few of those myself to use outside when I am seeking pieces to refinish.

    Oh, some of my favorites! I love the wood that was restored instead of being painted. Thanks so much for showing them off!

    I would hate the fake door. Every time I look at it I would want to door to lead someone. It look so real.
