Top Projects 2009 ~ Before & After

TopProjects
I’m joining in on Southern Hospitality’s Top Projects 2009 Before & After even though I didn’t really have too many projects for 2009.  Our house was on the market during the Summer and up to right before the holidays {when we took it off the market so I could decorate and enjoy the holidays}, so I can’t do too much that would be permanent projects.

I did manage to get a window mis-treatment on our powder room window, which was looking kind of bare after this bathroom was redone.

Some fabric, trim, hot glue and upholstery tacks did the job.  You can read about that here.

I joined in on The Inspired Room’s Procrastinator Party to finally get four of these chairs painted and recovered.

I show you what I did with them here.

I liked this picture, but not the frame color anymore.

To bring it up to speed with the 2000’s, I spray painted the frame black here.

Finally, while I wait for my sofa slipcover to be done, I’ve been making small changes in my living room.  One of which was painting the decorative grill over the sofa that was blending in with the wall.

I spray painted that black to pop a little more.  I just need to paint the screws black and this will be ready for some picture or pictures underneath it.

I’ve got lots of projects planned for 2010, mostly involving paint and furniture.  Next up is the living room coffee table.  All things that are coming with me if we do move.

I know all too well the frustrations of selling a house! It took us a year, but it ended up being the perfect time... even if I did want to pull my hair out LOL I hope you're able to sell it soon.

Your projects turned out great! I especially love that little bathroom curtain :)

It all looks great! Love the chairs and the curtain!

Selling is a pain! Been there, done that ~ got the scars to prove it (emotional). lol

Have a great week!

Hi Kathy-
What wonderful projects. I love the shape of those chairs.
What color will your new slip cover for your couch be?

Have a good week-

Well I for one think you did great on projects this year..especially with a house on the market. I'm really interested to read about your window "mistreatment" because I still have many windows in our new home with only blinds. I'll be checking this out!

Thanks for your recent visit to my blog. Yes, I think the flameless candles would be perfect in arrangements I sell. Don't want any customer burning their house down with a centerpiece I made for them!
