Hello Everyone, I hope you all had a great Christmas time! 2012 is coming to an end, so it is a good time to look back at what was accomplish during the year.
I compiled the main projects I worked on, by time line, rather than by popularity, and here they are:
-It all began with the kitchen where painting the cabinets, extending the island, adding moldings, new lights and many more DIY projects gave it a totally new look.
A big difference, compared to the previous builder's grade style it had, check it out HERE.
-Once the kitchen was done I continued with the family room, where the fireplace was heightened all the way to the ceiling, paint and other small projects made it blend better with the adjacent kitchen. This is how it looks now, dressed up for the Holidays, but HERE you can see the before and after.
-Next, the laundry room was the one to get a big dose of TLC. Steps away from the kitchen and family room it was a big eyesore that needed lots of extra storage space.
You can see the difference with the before and after pics. For the final reveal, click HERE.
-Then, I continued with my kids bathroom, like the kitchen, it was a fine functioning place, but it looked dated, a simple makeover made it look way better!
Check HERE to see the vanity transformation, diy bath tub cover, wall stenciling and more.
-I closed the year with my daughter's room transformation.
As with all the other projects, it is full of DIY tutorials, one of the rooms I like the most since it reflects her style and the fact that I could incorporate many of the things she asked for, like the window bench, the desk area, the picture frame board and more. Check it out HERE.
It's been an exciting year, almost a full year since I started blogging and it's been a wonderful experience! I really appreciate each one of you, my dear followers and visitors for your support, encouraging comments and wonderful friendship.
Have a Happy New Year!
