best project of the year

As the year is closing I'm taking a look back - what was my favourite project?

1. Craddle - January

 I started to blogg regularly in February. 
So for January I take a picture never shown on my blog before.
 I painted the craddle, glued an old music book cover on 
and sewed a bed cover and pillow from antique linnen before I got my latest baby.

2. Nursery - February

My fifth child - and the first time I designed a nursery.
And the first time I introduced the color aqua to my house.

3. March - laundry room

4. April - bathroom

mini bathroom make over

5. May - Kitchen

Read more about this kitchen make-over here and here.

( And I started to make sailboates in May):

6. June - living room

I removed the (pink!) wallpaper in my living room, even though I knew I could not set up new one immideately...
We lived for quite some weeks like this.

7. July - Hut on the deck

I painted the inside of the hut and created a outdoor "kitchen"

8. August - rug&hutch

I got the wallpaper in the living room up, painted a rug...

and gave this hutch a new life.

9. September - fireplace

I made a small faux fireplace for the master bedroom.

10. October - Headboard

A new headboard for our bed.

11. November - Sunburst Mirror

I made a sunburst mirror from drift wood.
It's soon coming up for sale at  Blissful Design!

12. December - school map & picture wall

This old school map got repaired and hung on the wall

and I created a picture wall above the piano.

(To see more of what I did for christmas go here.)


I let you choose, of course!

I voted for your kitchen project but I love all the choices and since I am somewhat new here I must go see all the links, first the sailboats! How fun is that boat?!
Keep up the good work; I am enjoying it!

I love your kitchen and have always thought that rug was an ingenious idea!

I love your blog. I live in Ireland but I am so in love with Scandinavian interiors that I live in a swedish style wooden house.

I really love your kitchen! It's very inspiring to me, I am wanting to change my cabinet color after making a bad choice, and I really love your fresh white kitchen. I'm having a hard time deciding if I should go darker or lighter w/ mine. I LOVE yours!
