Top Projects of 2010

It’s that time again.  The end of the year.  Time to look back at what we all accomplished.  Doing projects during the year is not something that I always plan on ahead of time, but it’s fun to look back and see what all I did get completed during the year.

There’s always a feeling of accomplishment when you look around and see the results of hard work and yes, it makes me happy and proud too.  We all want to make our homes the very best they can be and that’s what I try to share here all the time.  Ways to improve our surroundings without spending a fortune.

Come along with me for the year in project review of 2010 from my casa to yours!

Last February, I kicked off the year with a master bathroom project.  I tiled the tub surround with white subway tile. It was something that had bounced around my head for awhile and it was nice to get that one crossed off the list.

And just as I had envisioned, the subway tile really made a huge difference for not a lot of money.  I DIY’d it myself, saving a bunch of $$ by borrowing my dad’s wetsaw, which is a must for this project.  Back in March, I painted some chairs black. I didn’t do a lot of furniture painting this year, but did manage to do a few furniture projects during the year.  It might be that I can’t fit anymore furniture in my house. 🙂

These harp back chairs went from plain brown to black and I loved the update.

Black is always a great choice for a piece of furniture.

Another chair that came home with me from a yardsale was this little beauty at only $15.  I loved the lines of it, even though at the time I didn’t know where it would go. But, after I brainstormed it and decided to give it to my hubby, I named it the Alabama Chair and it sits proudly in his office.  Roll Tide!  Definitely not an old lady chair anymore. Now for the biggest and baddest project of the year.

Those painted black stairs!

You’ll remember the ripping of the carpet off the stairs, with the realization that I did NOT have nice stair treads underneath.  That didn’t stop me, I dove right in and got this one finished and it went from boring and blah carpet.

To some stylin’ painted black stairs with a striped jute rug to dress it right up.  I’m in love with these stairs still and they look just as good as Day One. One more look at what I had to deal with and I think you’ll agree that I was slightly nutso to take this on.  Click here for all the details and how-to on this one.But, I managed to pull it off anyway.  Carpenter, I am not, but they certainly pass MY inspection and everyone who comes in to see them loves them too. I also did a few updates in the living room by bringing in some aqua accents.  I de-formalized the room by taking out my needlepoint rug and removing a tapestry I’ve had for many years and all of that really made a difference in the feel of the room.

I painted this yardsale find, a gold table.

And it went to a pretty aqua shade that really added to the new vibe of the living room.  Just what I was looking for.  More casual and less stuffy.   This gallery salon wall achieved the look I was going for too and I love the casual, vintage feel of it. In the master bathroom water closet, I used more of my beloved beadboard wallpaper to add some needed architectural interest in this tiny space. And it works once again to liven up a space without spending a lot of $$.  By adding molding along the bottom and chairrail at the top, it looks and feels like the real thing.

Happy Day!  If you are interested in purchasing this wallpaper, the OLD PRE-PASTED version is now available again in my shop, so hop on over. Out back on the deck, I decided it was time to take the deck back and really utilize it for living.  It looked like this when I started this project. By restaining the floor, adding some resin wicker and cushy pillows, I had myself a nice retreat, right out the back door.  I spent many afternoons on my loveseat, enjoying the sunshine last summer.

It was truly my cozy retreat of the year and I loved being outdoors this summer.  I made those shutters too out of fence parts, which added to the cozy feel.  Back inside the master bathroom, this DIY cornice was made by me and this one was a snap.  Made out of foamcore board, it’s a easy DIY project. Adding some pretty trim finished it off.

My cute and cozy office nook got it’s final facelift too.  As much as I loved it, there was one more thing that I wanted to do and that was add a pretty feature wall of wallpaper on the back wall.

I got just the look I was going for with this pretty green damask and I also painted the rest of the walls in this little space lime green to bring it all together.  With the addition of a new office chair, it’s my dream come true office nook. We finally got a flat screen TV in our master bedroom this year, so needed a piece of furniture to house it on.  Out to the antique mall I went and found this little chest,  formerly used in a child’s room. It was the perfect size for what I needed, so I looked past its childish exterior and knew that I could transform it into a TV cabinet with some paint and that’s just what I did.  Fresh paint and new knobs and it’s revived again. And the last big project of the year was in the kitchen.  Time to say goodbye to my red bunny fabric, I found the perfect fresh and modern fabrics to liven up my space.  The Queen Ann’s were perked up once again with new yellow lattice fabric, which further enhanced their black paint. The window treatment was not overlooked either and down came the red bunny fabric for something a little more modern.  Still colorful though, I love my colors! This sewing project was a DIY project too and I was happy to get it finished and up.  Love, love how it turned out and the punch of fresh color it brings to the kitchen. So, that is my countdown for the year.  Whewwwww, that was a pretty busy year, don’t you think?  As I mentioned, I never sit down and figure out what I’m going to do from year to year, but I usually manage to get a lot of projects crossed off. So, how about you?

Are you a high achiever in the project department?

Some of my bloggy friends are way busier than I am and seem to crank out the projects at lightening speed. I love sharing all these projects with so many of you too throughout the year.  It’s really fun to celebrate our successes together.

Me, I’m just happy to have accomplished all of this in one year!

And let me just take this time to thank ALL of you readers out there (and lurkers who never comment!) :), those that stop by faithfully and take a look at my posts every week.  Without you all coming by, it wouldn’t be nearly as much fun blogging, so thank you from the bottom of my heart. It’s like having a whole bunch of friends out there, even though we may  never meet in person.

Link up your Top Project too and it will be fun to share and share alike.

  1. Thanks for hosting the party Rhoda! You had a fantastically productive year! So much fun to see how much we’ve all accomplished this year! Blessings in 2011. Can’t wait to hug your neck soon!

  2. Hi Rhoda! Wow another year gone bye! Time sure flies. But I think your party is such a good way to look back on the year and celebrate all of our creativity.

  3. Now, how did I miss your stair project?? And the subway tile tub? I have some reading to do my friend! And I ripped up my stairs recently just to see what was under them, and it’s the same as what yours was. Gah!

    Thanks for the party Rhoda. Can’t wait to start visiting everyone. 🙂

  4. Thanks for hosting the party! You are definitely an inspiration. My favorite of your 2010 projects is your stair re-do.

  5. My, my have you been busy this year. I definitely can’t decide which of your projects are my favorite. I love them all. But, the stairs I am probably most impressed with (because I need to pull our carpet up. AND I’m hoping our stairs are in better shape.) You go girl! Can’t wait to see what you whip up in 2011.

    Thanks for the best of Parade idea and thanks for hosting.


  6. What a treat to see your projects in one post like that Rhoda! I’m loving that stair project and am going to read about it now. Thanks for hosting the party and Happy New Year to you!!


  7. Thank you so much for hosting, Rhoda! 🙂 I think my favorite of your projects was your gorgeous stairs. Such fabulous work. 🙂 I love your parties because (knock on wood!) people really seem to get into it and participate. Thanks again for hosting. 🙂 Here’s to a Happy New Year!

  10. yep, i think you may have been nuts to tackle those stairs! lol. 😉

    WOW!!! what a beautiful change. amazing results. you must be thrilled.

    how did you know i was thinking of getting the beadboard wallpaper!!! i was also thinking of putting it up in our kitchen…but as a backsplash. do you think it would hold up to all the water splashes? believe me, i’m not the neatest in the kitchen. interesting that it’s prepasted too.


    thanks for hosting the party. so fun to see everyone’s projects for the year all in one spot.

    happy new year.

  11. Thanks for hosting, Rhoda! It was really a fun trip back over the year to figure out what I wanted to put in this post. I can’t believe I got so much done!

  12. Thanks for hosting Rhoda! Those are all wonderful projects that you did this year. I’m going to tackle my stairs in the next few months so I’ll have to check out your post for some tips. I don’t know if I told you but we are putting our house up for sale in March and moving to Decatur! So I have lots of projects to finish up before then.


  13. Rhoda, you and I have the same kind of linky party going. You did some great projects this year. Love those stairs and would love to do mine, but probably not happening. Have a Happy New Year!

  14. WoW!!! Rhoda! You have been very busy! All of your projects are amazing!!! My favorite would have to be the stairs and the aqua table and what you did above the table on that wall, it is just WONDERFUL!
    I want to add a post, but I will wait until tomorrow, I hope it will still be open then.
    Hugs, Cindy

  38. Such a great party idea, Rhoda. I’ve been instantly introduced to some amazing blogs! Thanks! I adore every one of your projects!

I am certainly following you now & adding you to my roll. I’m with you on being happy to achieve what we have this year. I am amazed at how quickly some bloggers whip out fantastic projects! Happy New Year!


  39. Hi Rhoda! I love all of your projects, especially the stairs, beadboard wallpaper in bathroom (I am going to HAVE to try that), and the tv cabinet makeover. Very pretty!
    I’ll have to do a post on my top projects of the year. That’s a great idea. I love going back and seeing all that we have accomplished around our place in the last year. I feel like we got quite a bit done. Can’t wait for the big projects of 2011!
    Hope you had a very Merry Christmas. And Happy New Year!! 🙂

  40. Rhoda, I am a lurker and after your comment on us lurkers I decided to comment! I wish I had a little bit of your creativity, I love all the projects you have accomplished. Your blog is one of my favorites and I look forward to continue lurking and hopefully I will be inspired to tackle my much needed bathroom redo!!
    Happy New Year!

  41. Hi Rhoda, How lovey to see all your projects. I love the rugs, the patio one and the one on the stairs for sure. Thanks for sharing with us and for putting up such a great link party. {I might not get anything done today because I’ll be reading everyone’s highlights!}

    It was great to *meet* you this year. Best to you and yours in 2011!

  42. I really like your makeovers…everything looks great.
    Thanks for hosting this meme each year. I now keep a file of my projects and have them “at the ready” for your party. I didn’t include ALL this time..just would make my post too long. So, I will add those to next year. :))

  43. Thanks for hosting! I love your curtain projects and your office!! I like the office before but I love it after!! Happy New Year and things to come in 2011!!!

  44. Rhoda, you were very busy in 2010 ;D

  48. Oh, Rhoda, you’ve had a great year. It makes me happy to read a re-cap of your adventures, and I’m also happy that I read about each one of those as you did them! You were one of the very first people to welcome me to the blogging world, and I’ve always admired your style, your can-do attitude, and of course your kindness and graciousness. It makes me proud to look back at what you’ve done this year and to realize that I’ve “known” you all this time!

    God bless you and yours as you look forward to a wonderful 2011. Thank you so much for hosting this party!

  49. Thanks for hosting, Rhoda! I’m still blown away by your stairs!!

  50. Hi Rhoda, You got some great things accomplished in 2010. Your home is beautiful and I am always amazed at your creativity! My favorite has to be the stairs. I know this was a huge amount of work but they turned out fabulous. I hope you have a happy and healthy 2011.

  51. Hi Rhoda! It is always such a treat to see snippets of your gorgeous home and all of your inspiring projects. Makes me antsy to get going on my long list for 2011! This is such a great idea for a linky party and I appreciate you hosting the fun! 🙂

    Happy new year!

  53. Rhoda, very very impressive…what you did with your stairs! The result is fabulous, you give me hope for mine. I know I wouldn’t find much to work with if I were to remove the carpet. Your deck is also so very welcoming, I can imagine enjoying time there, easily!
    Here’s to a great 2011~ Janell

  54. Edited today’s Favorite DIY Projects of 2010 post to link up to your party! Thanks for hosting! Janell

  55. Thanks Rhoda for this party! I had felt like I had not accomplished much this past year but when I went to my old post to make up this entry I was pleasant surprised that things did get done! Guess I just have way to much on my list to do!

  56. I’m sharing my kitchen remodel from earlier this year, hope that’s okay. You did the most amazing job with that stairway!!! And as you know, I adore your bathroom!

  57. Thanks for hosting the party, Rhoda. I’ve been looking forward to it all week! You certainly accomplished a lot this year. It is hard for me to pick a favourite because they all turned out so very well. But I must say that I am inspired by your huge stairs project that we hope to do one day. Also, the great makeover on your deck. It sure looks like a comfy spot to sit and enjoy the day!

  58. Chelsy@sweetpeasandkisses says:

    Wow, I can’t wait until the day I can say I accomplished as much as you did! Thanks for hosting such a fun party!

  65. Rhoda, it’s ALWAYS a pleasure coming to visit you. Not only is your style unique and beautiful, you are one of the most gracious bloggers out there. I thank-you for that.

    My hands down fav project of yours was that outdoor patio space. My jaw dropped when I saw it! This is the year for my own pretty patio, inspired by yours! 🙂 IF I stop sawing wood and painting on mine that is. 🙂 (how did it turn into a workshop anyway?!?)

    Happy New Year, Rhoda!

  66. Great projects Rhoda! And great party too. Thanks so much for having it – it helped me realize how much I did get done this year instead of focusing on what didn’t get done!!

  105. Happy New Year, Rhoda,
    Wow, you got some major projects done, I would say…. (those stairs had to have been a killer!) thanks for this linky party… it will take me at least another week to go thru all of them… but what fun!
    Just a minor request… it may be my computer won’t let me see them- but everytime I go to your blog list…. none appear on the page. In the past I have used this as shortcut to visit these, and I wonder what’s wrong. Maybe it is something you will be able to fix on your end…. in any event, thought I would give you a “heads up”

    Best wishes for the happiest new year ever !

  106. Hi Rhoda!
    It’s always fun to stop by and see what you’ve been up to.

    I hope your Christmas was wonderful. Ours sure was.

    Happy New Year!
    Much love and big hugs,

  107. That aqua table is just gorgeous!

  108. Love that back patio! The kitchen chairs are pretty great too!

  109. You’re amazing! I love your work. I am a new follower and I hope you will visit me too. I have referenced your site on my blog “best of 2010”.
    Have a great New Year!

  110. Such a great look at all you accomplished this year! Happy New Year!

  111. Wow – busy girl! You’ve accomplished so much in 1 year! The stairs are my favorite – your hard work and creativity and style = awesome!

    Happy New Year, Rhoda!

  112. Thanks for this fun recap. I love your stairs! Happy New Year and I’m excited to see what you have for next year.

  113. Wow…found your blog via Censational Girl’s blogspot and love this link party. It was hard to choose just one project a month but I did it and now I’m going to enjoy my day off tomorrow reading all the links. Thanks for hosting and hope you have a Happy New Year, fondly, Roberta

  114. Hi Rhoda! Thanks for hosting a 2010 favorites party! I just linked up, and am a new follower.

  115. So many amazing projects! I am totally inspired 🙂

  116. Hi Rhonda, I’m so inspired by all of these projects! Also, thanks for the comments you left on our blog, I thought it was very cool you visited our blog since I have been reading yours for so long now 🙂 Can’t wait to read through more of your posts! Gosh, that table with the frames and birdcage is AMAZING!

  117. Well someone’s year was a little more productive than mine, lol! BUT…we’re just about to wrap up our huge attic renovation that took us away from life (and me from blogging) for the past six + months. So…that’s something! 🙂

    Love this post! I remember your harp back chair post and need desperately to paint (and recover the seat of) my harp backed gossip bench this year. So maybe I’ll get around to making the 2011 round-up!
