The best of 2012

I cant believe its 2013 already! We started the blog just six months ago, and have already completed some big(ish) projects! Here are our faves projects of 2012.

The Backyard Fence

The fence was a weekend project that made a huge impact. Odin has a secure backyard to play in and we have a safe and pretty fence that still allows socializing with the neighbors.

The Office Bookcase

This project got started at this time last year but took until the summer to be completed. It was a big project in a small space, but we couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. A lot of blood sweat and tears went into this build!

The DIY Iron & Rope Mirror

This was an unplanned and dirt cheap project that turned out so well. It gets almost as much praise as the board & batten. All in all a great project that we’re super proud of.

The Dining Table & Bench

Not a project that was planned, but it has greatly improved the functionality of our dining room. We hosted 7 people for Christmas dinner, and threw a NYE party with lots of space for all. An easy but big impact project that we get a ton of use from!

The Master Closet

This is a project that most people never see (unless they’re creepin in my closet…) but that I absolutely adore. It’s so nice to open the closet and be met with a perfectly organized pretty room. I love how the painted wallpaper turned out, and it gives a bit of glam to the room.

The Guest Room Board & Batten

This is my favorite project of 2012! For less than $100 in supplies and a lot of saw cuts and curse words, this room turned out better than I could have hoped for! I also love the new bedside tables, transom and of course the mirror, but the woodworking sets this room apart!

So there it is, my faves from 2012.  Which project do you like best?
