2010 Top 10 Projects and a Glimpse into 2011

I was taking a look back at my posts from 2010 and thought I would do a recap of my Top 10 favorite projects in no particular order.
#10 - Pin Keep Box
 

One of my favorite things is pin keeps. I just can't seem to get enough of them. I made up this 'Pin Keep Box' back in February.


I try to find new ways to use old things whenever I can.
This bowl rack had some humble beginnings as an old bookshelf.

  
This newly made nesting box was made to look old. I use this aging technique quite often and it seems to work out nicely.

This Whale Tail Candle Sconce was another new project to reflect a time gone by.


This re-purposing project was my favorite from 2010.With the help of my husband, we converted this old factory cart into a coffee table filled with character.
The cart is around 90 years old and has worked hard it's whole life. It now resides in our family room and is being used and loved again.


My husband is a pretty smart and talented guy. He created this lovely gated entrance for our property and it is another one of my favorite things.

I jumped on the Subway Art bandwagon and came up with an old school version - no cricut cutter for me.


Halloween gave me a creative excuse for this Primitive Witch Hat.

A need for a new chair brought about this project. After some much needed refinishing, she is now enjoying a new lease on life.

 
I ended the year with our Christmas Mantel for 2010 - a blending of old things with a 'Snowy Owl' theme.

With 2011 now here, I am looking forward to sharing many new projects. I am leaning towards a lighter pallet and 'all shades of white' are my color choices of the moment.  Using antiques and vintage objects when I can, or recreating them when I can't. There is never enough time in the day to complete all the projects that dance through my head, but a girl can dream.

Linking up to the following parties:
