  1. Although simple.. the black and white framed photo's are my favorite! I'd love to have one of each of my children like that!

  2. I love the nursery – its beautiful!

  3. Ooo-la-la! I LOVE it all, Brooke!
    You are so talented :)
    Thanks for all your hard work this year, girly!

  4. Most people would be thrilled to even accomplish one of your months in an entire year! Do you sleep? WOW!!!

    So impressed. :)

    Aloha,
    charlie

  6. What a busy year with so much to show! I can't wait to see what you get up to in 2011!!

    I think my favorite was the dining room chairs. They are too much fun!

  8. What a wonderful year! so many beautiful creations! :)

  9. Very inspiring! Love the yellow furniture, that is amazing!

  10. I love these projects. They look amazing. Love the dining room table make over. It is so fun!

  11. I love the dining room table makeover most! But I also love that I finally figured out how people do trim for so cheap. I always thought it HAD to be wood on the bottom of the wall but now I realize you can paint it white to give it the look but for a lot less money.

    Seriously you're amazing!

  12. Love love love the yellow furniture!!

    The TV hutch is a close second.

    Can't wait to see what you have in store for this year! You're blog is great.

    Holy moly, Brooke! You have been B-U-S-Y!!! At least you have a fabulous home to show for it!

    PS. I would die to have that houndstooth bookshelf. Love it.

  14. This is a fine selection of delicious makeovers!

    Brooke, I just started reading your blog a month or two ago and I love it! In fact, from your links I'm reading other blogs (but you're my #1 xoxo) and I was inspired to start a tiny blog of creative things we're trying at our house.

    Its hard to say what was my favorite project of the year was, but of the ones you listed I have to say the curtain valence was amazing (inspired me to finally put up curtains in my living room), the chair re upholstery – so easy to follow, and the decorative wall art (loved how that turned out but I'm a bit to too timid to try that one yet!). I can't wait to see what you have for us in 2011!! Best wishes to you. ~Lori
