So here’s the deal.
Sometime within the last few weeks, I thought to myself, “Hey, I think it’s been a year since I started blogging!” I checked my handy-dandy blog dashboard, and sure enough, I started in July 2010. And I could swear that the first post was on July 25, so I decided that would be the day to start a giveaway. Well, guess what. Apparently I have been wordier than I thought, and there was another, older page of old posts! Huh. Apparently my “blogiversary” was on July 14! But…better late than never, right?
I browsed though my “project” folders on my computer, and I’d thought I’d share a few of my favorites…most from before the days before I knew anything about picture editing or staging (and I still don’t know a lot)!
This may be the project that started it all. I wanted a wall unit for my front room, and this is the result. I have a nearly uncontrollable urge to re-paint them in a creamy white now…
A pink chandelier for my daughter’s bedroom…
Learning to use my secondhand Cricut (I’m a Silhouette girl now)!
Learning that spray paint comes in such fun colors!
A bench makeover before I learned how to re-cane furniture…
I wanted to keep this library table so bad. My husband wanted to keep his IKEA desk. What’s up with that??
Recycling an old canvas…
Still in love with these schoolhouse chairs!
I’m a sucker for red (and more numbers)…
I love numbers on pretty much anything!
And not just numbers…I just love typography, as demonstrated by my French chocolate coffee table (my most popular project ever)!
Hope you enjoyed your trip down memory lane with me!
Most importantly, I want to say
to all of you who have taken the time to make kind comments, give advice, encouragement, and support. I love the “blog world,” and I’m happy I joined up!
Now, for the giveaway!
The winner will receive a beadboard sign of his/her choice!
If you have a particular saying, color, size, etc…I can work with that.
Here are a few ideas to get you going, but I’m open to all sorts of possibilities!
