It’s amazing to me that in a few days 2012 will be behind us…
it seems like only yesterday I was posting my 1st year end Recap for 2011.
I am so thankful to each and every one of you who have stopped by for a visit. Who have taken the time to read about our post, and let us know how much you have liked them.
I have a tendency to keep thinking about all the projects still needed to be done at the Charmer, but it’s nice to see what I have accomplished right along with you. I am happily surprised to see how much I have gotten done!
Following are my top 10 most views.
The most viewed was our Kitchen Remodel..
I still can’t believe the difference, there as times I walk into the kitchen and still expect to see the old one. This was the largest remodel project we’ve done on the Charmer, and after 20 years of working with a counter of 4 feet and no dishwasher, I now have a very functioning kitchen.
The second, our living area Cottage Pinch Pleated Drapes that I made…
The calculations drove me nuts on this project, but once that was figures out they were a cinch to make.
We had a beautiful spring in 2012 and our Front Cottage Garden flourished in it,
right after Spring the weather turned overly hot and into a drought. We went from beautiful gardens to only garden survival mode.
Then we worked on converting a thrift store bookcase
into a Cottage Charmer…you might also notice our main living area wall color was changed to a much lighter, cottage look.
Then I was back to making curtains for the colder weather…I made Drop Cloth Burlap Trimmed Curtains..
I just love her, she brings great storage as well as charm to the room.
Next, our new Gate Leg Drop Leaf Table I bought from a junkin friend Pat…
This drop leaf table is perfect for our home, and is so very flexible.
Our next project was Stenciling our Stairway Wall…
I could not be happier how this turned out, it was a difficult project to stencil the stairway due to the top/bottom wall angles. A very tedious project, but one I would do over again. The flower stencil provides so much character and charm.
Our ninth most view project was our Fall Front Porch..
I enjoyed using thrift store oil paintings throughout my inside/outside Fall Decorating.
Tenth on our list, is a favorite of mine, a Cottage Lamp. I found a cute lamp at my first barn sale, painted her up an added lace to her lampshade…
This has also turned out to be a great year, not only for the projects/crafts completed, BUT, for your friendships. I feel blessed to have “met” so many of you, and feel part of a large family.
Thank you all so much for being a part of The 1929 Charmer Family.
