Year End Re-cap!


My goodness, I can't believe 2010 is almost over!
I thought it might be fun to re-cap some of the fun things I've done this past year..
SO HERE WE GO!

I totally re-did my horrible kitchen!
We bought our house repossessed and the kitchen was awful..
we spent MANY days re-doing the dark
dungeon of a kitchen into a bright, cozy cottage kitchen!

Before...

After...


You can see how I did it here.

Another big project I did this year was my son's room...
I built him an entire wall of built-in cabinetry.


Before....


After....

I also re-did a laminate armoire...
YES, you can paint laminate!

This is what the laminate door looked like before I
re-did it..

omg! i LOVE ur kitchen! -that is truly an inspiration to me! i've been hemming and hawing over whether to paint my cabs white or cream as opposed to a color that would hide dirt and spills (3 kids,hubby,dogs=mees makers!)but everytime i see a kitchen like this my heart goes all a flutter! i might just have to bite the bullet and paint them cream and become a better house keeper! thx!
