Projects of 2014

 Hi there friends...
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!
Can you believe in just two more days we'll be ringing in 2015...boy this year flew!!
~~~
I always love to look back and see the projects that got accomplished during the year...and we accomplished a big one in the beginning of 2014...all new hardwood flooring on our main level!



 We lived with a BIG mess for 2 months but it was so worth it to get these pretty floors put in throughout the first floor...BUT it also lead to many other projects!!
 I made over our two counter chairs using Mason Blanche chalk paint in Wrought Iron.
 Added corbels to our kitchen island...love this addition!
 Continued by giving our mantel a new look too...
it went from being bright white to...
...to a pretty grey green using Annie Sloan chalk paint in Chateau Grey.
 Next I worked on giving our kitchen table and chairs a fresh new look.
 I painted them in Versailles...it's one of my favorite Annie Sloan colors.
  
My son and daughters jack & jill bathroom got a little updating.
We added a new solid surface countertop and replaced the large builder grade mirrors with pretty framed ones.


 I found this pretty antique cabinet for our master bathroom...and gave it a fresh new look.
 LOVE this piece!


 I always wanted a bench for the foot of our bed  and was so happy to find this one! 
Now you know it didn't stay like this right!?!
 Much better!
 I had this table from The Bombay Co. for years...it was sitting in my storage room...until I had one of those light bulb moments lol!
Gave it a fresh coat of chalk paint in pure white...
 ...and now it has a home in my son and daughters bathroom.
 Another antique chest  that I made over for our master bedroom.

 I also added a new tufted headboard in here.

 I took this mahogany nightstand and painted it a fun bright color "Antibes" for my youngest daughters room.
Her room went through some more changes this past summer when I found this pretty cane headboard...

 The pretty pie table my mom found for me was made over in Versailles and now has a home in our living room.


I've been working on giving our master bedroom a lighter look and still have a few more things that need to get done...but I gave you all a peek of the makeover to the highboy right before Thanksgiving...
   After the new hardwood flooring was installed   we bought a new sectional for our family room and my favorite project was turning our coffee table into a comfy ottoman with the help from my friend Linda!

Last but not least was the new lantern from Ballard we added over the table in our breakfast area...

  Well that's it for 2014 ...
looking forward to starting a few new projects in the new year!
~~~
Wishing you all a very Happy & Joyous New Year!!

Wow, you had a lot going on at your house this year, Martina! It all looks beautiful. Seeing your new bathroom countertop makes me think we will have to do the one in our master bathroom soon. Probably this coming year if I can talk hubby into it.

Looking forward to seeing what projects you may have in the coming year.

Happy New Year!
