A Few of My 2012 Faves

I was going to move on from 2012 reviews, but decided to share some of my personal favorites from last year.  My previous lists were based on stats.  Some of my favorites were included on the previous lists, but here are a few more.  Click on titles to review posts.

URN PLAY

I was very happy with the paint treatment on this piece.






GLASS AND METAL COMBOS

I always have fun with bottles, and vintage hardware is one of my favorite things.






BURLAP FOOTSTOOL

I've done this design many times before, and I never tire of it.




MARY'S MAKEOVER

Mary was pretty sad when I found her.  If you haven't seen the before, you need to.



FAUX OXIDATION

I showed you how to add a little character to rusty galvanized metal.



FAB FLOWER POT

I dressed up a terra cotta pot with lace, beading, and transfer.





FIVE MINUTE FOOTSTOOL

I'm not kidding when I say it took me about 5 minutes to create this footstool.





FRENCHY JEWELRY BOX

A thrift store find, given a little french flair.





BEADED SAP BUCKET




and, my bucket is sitting on another favorite.

FRENCH CHAIR



I never shared the price on this chair.  Are you ready?  $5.00 at the flea market.  Remember how it looked?



All I did was paint the fabric.




Okay, I think every vision I realize is a favorite.  So, I'm going to stop here.  I'm sooooo ready for 2013.  How about you?

I'm going to be moving in a few new directions with my posts.  Looking forward to sharing.  See ya soon.

Rosemary,
I love "all" of your projects!
I visit often to see what's next.
I am the same way..... I have a hard time picking just a few of my fav projects. I put so much into each one.... that it's hard to pick.
Looking forward to getting a lot done in 2013.
You are always an inspiration!!
Will visit again soon!
Best,
Elizabeth
