A Look Back at 2011

I had big goals for my home for 2011.  Unfortunately, I didn't get as many of those crossed off the list as I'd have liked, but I did have a pretty productive year.  I tackled organizing and prettifying my shoe closet.

See the before and after here.

I created this sunburst silverware clock for my dining room from some vintage silverware.

We took a couple steps closer to calling the kitchen "finished" by completing the cookbook shelves

and installing the drawer microwave.

The gallery wall got a makeover with the addition of some shelves to make rotating out artwork easier.
Handy dandy instructions & the awesome hubster here.

I transformed a couple of Craigslist finds.  The rec room snack bar dresser got some paint and stain,

and my wing back chair got a fun makeover.

Thanks for popping in and looking back with me.  Hope you come along for the new year.
