Best Projects of 2014

Another year is almost over and I am making plans for what I want to complete in 2015. Looking back on my favourite completed projects from the year ending always inspires me. Today I will be sharing what I consider my best projects of 2014.

This year, more than any other, I find that I am finally narrowing in on what I want our home to look and feel like (on our tight diy budget of course.) Painting and selling some furniture has allowed me to buy a few new pieces as well. I'll keep the explanations to a minimum but you can click on any of the headings to see a related post with more details.

New stained pine shelves in kitchen

Painted vintage buffet in General Finishes Lamp Black Milk Paint

Painted Waterfall Dresser in General Finishes Snow White

Painted pedestal coffee table

Painted chairs, sidetable and chalkboard with ASCP Provence with White

Painted front door and trim, new roof, new garage door and garage man door, replacement skylights
(a post to follow when the weather is a bit nicer, that's the old roof being taken off and that photo of the snow was from last winter, we had a green Christmas this year)

Painted entry, dining room, family room and kitchen with Revere Pewter and Simply White

Popcorn ceiling texture removed in family room, dining room and entry hall
The link shows the family room, better photos of dining room and entry hall to follow

There is still so much that we want to do but we feel blessed to be able to live and spend time with our family and friends in our home. I do enjoy furniture makeovers and updates to our home as time and budget allows. Hopefully 2015 will be a year where I can continue to figure out my design style too. I look forward to seeing lots of year end posts from blogs I follow as well
