Rhoda over at Southern Hospitality did the most wonderful post about the projects she did around her house in 2009. She had 10 to post, however, she probably could have done 50. So ambitious and creative! While I don't have that many, I thought I'd share what we did do.
1. Master Bedroom
This is a room that we actually just finished and I haven't done a post about yet. I think I may do a separate post in a couple days showing more of what we did. I don't have any before pictures but you can see the color of the walls in this picture from when we were redoing the master bath.
Like I said, check back in a week or so to see more pics of all the projects we did. I'm going to do a bit about repainting laminate furniture. For a little run-down though we painted, made a headboard, added new bedding, bought a new dresser, added a new picture from the Ann Arbor Art Fair, added window treatments, and redid some end tables.
Here is a pick of the headboard that we made out of a door for the Master Bedroom. We didn't have one before. I really like the headboard because it's attached to the wall and my favorite...it only cost $22!
3. Guest Bath
You can see the official post that I did about it here, but this will give you an idea of what happened in this room.
As you can see, there were wood floors in the bathroom....Who knows.
4. Powder Room
This is one of the rooms I don't have a before picture for. It used to be a very deep red. There was also no mirror on the wall and no blinds.
Obviously, this still has some left over Christmas decorations :) However, we painted, added a mirror, wood blinds, and did a wall of fabric panels.
5. Spice/Paper Closets
Oddly enough, this is probably one of my favorite things I did this year. Moving the spices freed up so much much space in my kitchen cabinets. I love the paper door too because now I don't have so much floating around the rest of the house. I painted each door panel with many coats of magnetic paint and put the spices in magnetic jars. Voila!
6. Kitchen Sink
Again...no before picture. It used to be a stainless sink that was VERY shallow and had a standard faucet. I'm so glad we replaced this so I don't give myself a shower every time I wash something other than a fork!
7. China Cabinet
As for the common theme, there is also no before pictures of this. I would kill for some though, because this was honestly so much work! It used to be a light (ugly) brown that was really dull and bland. The panels on the front were more than not fun to paint :) I also added some new pulls to the doors.
8. Master Bath
This is another re-do that some of you may have seen before here. These are some peeks of what we did:
The wall color was a burnt orange, there were molding wood floors (gross!), and again just pull-down blinds.
We painted the walls a very light blue, changed to small octagonal tiles, added wood blinds, and accessories.
9. I'm tired.
10. I'm going to take a nap.
Now go check out some more projects at Rhoda's blog here!!
Have a great day!!
