My Favorites From 2012

I'm super excited for 2013 - to finish some projects that we've been working on and start some new ones! But first here is a recap of some of my favorite projects from 2012.

Our tufted headboard with wings and nailhead head trim. This was also one of the most pinned projects from my site, so one of your favorites too! I like this project because it was low on cost and effort but has a big impact. Click here for more details.

An 80's chandelier turned into a large beveled glass mirror. What I like about this project: We were able to transform something that we were planning on throwing away to one of my favorite things in our house! I also love the large size! Click here for more details. Additionally, it was named one of Apartment Therapy's Before and After: That was a What? Best of 2012. Such an honor! Thank you!

Coral chalk paint dresser. Why I like it: The color was the perfect pop to liven up our bland rental. Also, cutting off the water damaged bottom and adding legs helped to keep it from looking too heavy at the bottom. Click here for details.

Ikea Lack tables to upholstered ottomans. One of my other favorite trash to treasure projects! Why I like it: Our Lack tables were in such bad shape, by adding foam and fabric we were able save these from the trash. Click here for more details.

Office credenza with a modified chevron design on the front. What I like about this project: I love how all of the office supplies can be neatly tucked away at the end of the day since it doubles as our living room. I also love the soft blue and how easy the chevron was to lay out! Click here for more details

Finally, our moroccan stenciled rug. What I like: By choosing a deep blue and a large pattern, we were able to get a lot of impact to minimize our boring beige carpet. Click here for more details.

2012 was an exciting project year for us! I'm looking forward to many more projects in the next year. Bring on 2013!

We'll be leaving for CA tomorrow, sad to say goodbye to family, but at least there will be a furry face to greet us in CA. We've missed this girl so much!

Happy New Year!


  1. So glad you had a lovely visit with your family here in MD. We saw no snow but I'll bet you did. Seeing all the projects together blows me away. And I found you from the rope ceiling light. You are very talented and lucky to have a husband with those skills!! Happy 2013.

    1. I couldn't believe it, we got snow three times while we were there! and David is definitely a keeper :) Happy 2013!

  2. All gorgeous projects. That mirror is still one of my favorites. Such a beautiful outcome and from such humble beginnings. Safe travels to you and happy new year!

  3. What wonderful, gorgeous projects! Love them all! Have a great week.
