My Favorite Projects of 2015


Last January I posted my project list of 2015 and three out of five got done. That's pretty good though, right? Fingers crossed the other two get done this year.

Here is a list of my favorite projects of 2015.

We had new shutters made for the front of the house to replace the old vinyl ones that hung for nineteen years. This change was long overdue.

I created a gallery wall out of my vintage breadboards and some copper in the breakfast room.

The guest bathroom was transformed from dark and outdated to a light bright farmhouse style that I love.

The yellow chairs got a makeover.

Transformation of an armoire from craigslist.

After waiting way too long I painted my dresser.

I painted an old farmhouse style bar stool to use in the kitchen.

I painted a cane bench for the guest room.

Pine chest was painted.

A pair of candlesticks were transformed with layers of paint.

My absolute favorite project of the year was transforming our tired and worn out deck into a beautiful outdoor room.

My last project of the year was lightening up the built ins and mantel in the great room.

Looking forward to more projects and updates for the new year.

Have a fabulous weekend in this new year!

  1. It was a busy but beautiful year at the Savvy home! I absolutely adore the fabulous outdoor room you've created. In fact, right about now I would love nothing more than to be sitting in that beautiful spot with those lovely flowers all around. It's been below zero every. single. night this week in my little Nebraska town. Brrrrr!
