Oh how I loved 2008! Because of blogging...I literally got so many things done because I wanted to take a picture to post! It was like being driven! Driven to accomplish more, get things done, paint like I've never painted before! I bet you can relate!
Rhoda over at http://southernhospitality-rhoda.blogspot.com/ had a great idea. She posted several before and after projects from 2008! What a great idea Rhoda. She has an amazing site with gorgeeeeeeeeeeeeeous pictures! Wowee Kazowee, I love her blog! Her before and afters make your mouth drop open....seriously!
One major thing I accomplished was redoing a craft/guest/sewing room. OOOOppps I took the bed out...shhhhh don't tell hubby. I kept moving the bed, moving it and then ooops it finally was completely out of the room. (Buuuaahhhaaaaaa) I'm not sure if he has noticed!
Things went from cluttered to ordered, scrapbook papers are separated by color, it was just easier that way!
Then how many gals made a chalkboard? I love it, I use mine all the time...I'm thinking about making one and putting it next to hubby's side of the bed, with a list of things to do...you know how they are groggy when they first wake up and don't know what to do with themselves?
I used a broken off rake head to hold the chalk and eraser!
Next hubby slams on the brakes of the car says "get out!" He saw this little puppy on the side of the road and suggested I paint it white. He informed me he knew exactly what shabby chic was and knew immediately I would want this! And yes I did! Happy dance!
The nester suggested using scrap paper on the back of bookcases so I used her idea for this little baby!
Next was an old shelf I painted white and put in my dining room.
Here it is decorated for everyday...
Here it is decorated for fall!
There were a few other before and afters but it might take too long!
thanks for the visit!
