Top Projects of 2010

This year seems to have been a year when I went from project to project.
Seeing all the great inspiration out here in blogland from you all,
 definitely lit a fire under my fanny
to lighten and brighten and "whiten" up my home.

I tried a few things that I never would have thought about before
...slipcovering two red chairs in my Living Room,
and adding chair slips to my Dining Room chairs.


Oh, but I'm so glad I did, and I don't regret one little ounce of paint or sweat!

I'm linking up to Rhoda for her Top Projects Party,
can't wait to see what everyone else has been doing this year!

If you've visited from a party hope you'll come back!

Hi Debra:
I love the results of each and every project! Happy New Year, my friend. Can't wait to see what you have in store for 2011!

T's Daily Treasures said...

Hi Debra, I do remember when you were doing those dining chairs and the new look certainly helped to transform the room. Just gorgeous! Happy belated anniversary. The marriage certificate in your previous post truly is a treasure. It is rather sad to think that it went to market but it certainly made its way to the right person for care. Wishing you all the best, Tammy

LOVE the slipcovers! I want to do some for my sofa & love seat! Was it hard? Do you sew a lot? I haven't in years! Wishing you a very Happy New Year! Thank you for all the love & support this past year during Hubby's surgery. You were wonderful!

Amazing and very beautiful transformations of your home. Give yourself a hearty pat on the back for tackling all those jobs and for the fantastic results!

Pat said...

I enjoyed seeing your 2010 projects Debra. Lots of great inspiration here!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I forgot about your slipcovers ~ you did a fabulous job on those, Debra! Oh yes, that table, but it turned out for the best, didn't it? It looks just as beautiful. You did to your kitchen what I wish I could do to mine. However, we are hoping to sell and downsize this year and I think I'm going to leave any type of kitchen projects for a new house. I'll just look at your pictures! : )

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

What fantastic projects! There are a few that I am tempted to recreate. Thank you for sharing.

Have a very Happy New Year!

Vicki said...

Your "What was I thinking?" painted table is one of my favorites! I love them all though. You cracked me up with "lit a fire under my fanny." I learn the best one-liners from my bloggin' pals. You're a decorating genius, my dear.


Val said...

Debra, you have such a gorgeous home.

The Pennington Point said...

Carol said...

Terrific! And you get to enjoy all the fruits of your labor every day!

Diane said...

I wonder who invented the first paint?! Wonder what he (or she) is thinking looking down on us now! LOL! Best stuff ever, isn't it.

Blue Creek Home said...

You really did some incredible makeovers this year.

I keep talking about making some slipcovers. Yours are so pretty.
My favorite is the beautiful painted table - love it!
