BTB Party #8 Show Me Your Best of 2010

Hi everyone. This week we are going to share our best or favorite projects or makeovers of the last year. Some of you have done quite a few projects and I hope you will share your favorites. If you want to share more than one just combine them in a post and link it up. I will be the first to admit that since I started  blogging I have probably done a few more projects than I would have if I wasn't blogging, but that's a good thing, right?

Here are some of my favorites that I worked on this year.


This is the before shot of the first chest that I painted and glazed.


This is the after. It is not in this location any more though. You know how I like to move things.


This is the before of my dining room hutch.


The after with the new green background.


This is an old changing table that was my son in law's


and now it is a pretty in pink changing table for his daughter.


I made these drop cloth drapes to replace boring white sheers in the guest room.


The mantel went from white to


this new color.

If you want to see any of the posts in full click on the highlighted links.
I have a few new projects I need to start for 2011. How about you?

Now I want to see some of your projects and makeovers from this year.

Please just link your intended post and not your whole blog.
Please add a link or my button in your post so others can find the party and join in if they would like.
I hope you will become a follower if you are new here.

Now let's party!

  5. Hi Kim! Love your 2010 projects and wish I could join the party this week, but since I didn't start blogging until November, there are none to offer. But I will be closely watching the parties for inspiration and making comments as well. Wishing you a happy and fulfilling New Year~

  13. Hi Kim-

    I think your dresser is one of my favorite projects that I have seen done this year. I love the piece and the color you painted it. You did such an excellent job.
    I am having trouble linking up my post - I keep gettin error messages from McLinky. Not sure if anyone else is. I will try again a bit later.
    My best- Diane

  20. I love the green background in the cabinet, but couldn't find where you mention the color. Care to share?
    Love the other projects too. It's giving me some fun ideas for my house.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Wow! My favorites are the chest in the first image and the mantel. The before of the chest was gorgeous as is -- I could hear my husband saying "no way" to painting that! But wow, is it gorgeous. The mantle? A thing of dreams!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Kim, my favorite thing that you did was the fireplace. I love it! I also love the foyer table. Everything you paint is fabulous!

    I linked up my old post of my guest room. It was my favorite thing in my old house but with so much moving, I didn't have a lot of projects. Just moving in the house was a project:)

  25. Oh, Kim, I'm sorry I had a glitch and ended up posting the same post twice. I don't know how to delete one of them, but if you can, please do. I've been having trouble with Mr. Linky all day. Your painting projects are awesome. Happy New Year to you and Mr. Saavy.

  35. Love, Love, Love your blog. Your projects have inspired me to try a few things. We have a building full of what some might call "junk". Viewing your blog makes me want to go out and get some items to work on, but my hubby said first I need to work on the few we have in the garage. I better get to work!
