Best of 2011

So I’ve officially been blogging for 7 months, yay! What started as a place to house pictures of my craft projects has really turned into a blog about so many things – pregnancy, recipes, trips, family and of course all of my DIY projects. So as 2011 winds down, I wanted to capture some of my favorite projects this year, as well as link up to Rhoda’s Top Projects of 2011 Party.

This bench is still one of my favorite projects on my blog. We call it the “traveling bench”, because I honestly move it every couple months. It’s been a footboard bench, window seat, and is now a laundry room storage bench. It may be getting some nursery love soon…

Not exactly a Before & After, but I just loved how easy it was to turn a simple piece of plywood into a fabulous tufted headboard.
