Best Projects of 2012

Pin It
Happy New Year everyone! I hope you are enjoying it :) I have been on pins and needles waiting for this baby to come. I never imagined that she would be born in January. The way this is going, I feel like we won't have her until February. Here's to being overdue! lol. Well, I was hoping that this little baby would be in this list of best projects for 2012, but alas, she'll have to wait for the 2013 list :)

I don't feel like a got a lot accomplished back in 2012, but looking back, apparently I was a pretty busy pregnant chick :) Here's the top 10 projects from Thrifty and Chic:

Cheap Board and Batten: Update a bathroom for as little as $11 with this cheap and chic board and batten:

Striped Burlap Curtains: Added some pizazz to my living room with these striped burlap curtains.

Coffee Filter Hanging Light: Even though this project took forever, it was well worth the effort :)

Guest Room/Office Makeover: Finally got around to merging my office with the guest room with some good secrets on how to hide all your crafts/clutter ;)

$60 Guest Bathroom Update: Best $60 I have ever spent! This bathroom went from builder grade to cottage chic in a pinch....and with only a penny :)

Easy way to update a desk: I expanded this small little desk with just a little help from some 2x4s.

Cedar Planked Walls: Finally...Finally! added some character into my dining room with these walls. I just love it in here now :)

DIY Headboard: I absolutely love how this headboard for the guest room turned out. It's amazing what some cedar planks and paint can do :)

3-1 Coffee Table: One of my favorite projects was making this coffee table. It is so maneuverable and changeable...and pretty :)

Outdoor Farmhouse Table: Getting the weathered wood technique was key for this project. I just can't wait to start using it in the spring!! It's been under a tarp since I made it :(

Here's to a great new year! I'm excited to see what it will bring :)
