  8. 8

  9. 9

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

  10. 10

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

  11. 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. 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.

    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
