My Favorite Project of 2010

Now that 2010 is coming to a close, I would like to thank all of you for stopping by to see my projects and for all the sweet and encouraging comments! I have also enjoyed visiting all of you and have been AMAZED at all of your talent. You all inspire me! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!

  My favorite project was a toss up between my youngest daughter's Shabby Chic Coastal bedroom and my oldest daughter's bedroom. I really loved doing both, but we still have to build some bookcases in my youngest daughter's bedroom and my oldest daughter's bedroom is 99% finished. The only thing I want to do in this room is make an upholstered headboard. Soooo, my favorite project is.....
My Oldest Daughter's Bedroom.
My daughter  chose the fabulous paint color and the inspiration for her room started with the black and white pillow I purchased for her bed.

The projects for this room were really fun....From the trivet/placemats I found at HomeGoods (I spray painted the silver ones)...

...to organizing my daughter's armoire (my favorite)...

to the stapled bedskirt...I know...I cheated on this one, but it looks good!

The accessories were easy to find, too.

My daughter loves  the black wire dress form.

The birdcage is cute, too.


Overall, it was a fun project that turned out well!

Thanks for stopping by!
