Hope everyone had an amazing holiday, whether it was Christmas, Hanukkah or Kwanzaa!
I've been missing from blogland (MFB) for the last week because my son is home on winter break and we've been spending a lot of quality family time together. When I was a kid, the week between Christmas and New Year's Eve was a magical time with no school worries and plenty of fun winter things to do, so I wanted to spend extra time making this week a special memory for my son also.
But hey, I didn't want to miss out on a few parties that are happening this week! So I'm throwing up this post showing you some of my favorite projects that I did in 2010.
My most popular post of all time was about this console table that I painted in July.
I still love how this hutch turned out. Green is one of my favorite colors.
My curbside rescue wicker chair and ottoman was a fun project to do. The before photos do not do its ugliness true justice since I was using my Blackberry to take the photo. Gray, crunchy wicker about sums it up.
This oak chair seat redo was a quick project, but made such a difference.
And even though it's not earth shattering, I still like the refinishing of my old dresser. Yes, it would have been easier to just slap a coat of paint on it, but it was pretty satisfying to revive its original wood look.
And no, I still haven't gotten to my rocking chair. It is still mocking me every time I pull in the garage. I'm afraid it will have to wait until Spring since it will be too messy of a job to work on inside the house.
Now I'm back to having a Back To The Future movies marathon with my son, see you in a few days.
