How about a recap of what transpired here at COASTAL CHARM in 2009? Since I just started my blog in late August...I'm very low on before pics...so I'm just going to show you a couple of things from 2009. We started our kitchen re-model in November and we still have some woodwork and window treatments to finish. I'm very pleased with my new granite countertops...sink/faucet...beadboard...light fixtures and the shade of chocolate paint that I went with...it all turned out just like I wanted:) Looks like I will be sewing some window treatments this month...wish me luck on finding just the right fabric! When I finish getting all my Christmas decor down, I will post more pics of my NEW kitchen (please remember...I was out of town all of last week...hope to get a lot of it down by Friday).
Here is a list of things that will be going on at COASTAL CHARM in 2010!
*Make window treatments for my kitchen.
*Paint all the brass that is still in my house.
*Re-model and organize my study.
*Make curtain panels for the screen porch.
*Make a headboard for my bedroom.
*Have some FUN with chalkboard paint.
*Open up the entry to my dining room from the foyer.
*Paint the dining room.
*Install a new front door.
*Install wood floors in family room...hall and dining room.
If my hubby is lucky...I will stop with this! Something tells me that his luck just ran out...I'm soooo happy that he LOVES me soooo much! Now it's time for me to get busy on some of these new projects for 2010...I promise I will do better this year with before and after pics. Thanks Kendall for hosting your first party...2009 Best of Your Nest Party and also thanks to Rhoda for hosting...Top Projects of 2009 Party.
Before pic...we lowered our bar...GREAT idea!
Happy with my new granite.
LOVE me some BEADBOARD...I have installed soooo much of this AWESOME stuff in our beach condos over the past few years!
I had a really hard time picking out a new light fixture for my morning room...it sure did pay off...I'm loving the one I came home with!
This is a small project that I did last fall at my beach condo...I had been collecting shells for this mirror and it was time to get the job done!
It's amazing what a few shells will do to a plain old mirror...very easy project!
Sooooo simple...replace those plain shower curtain rods with a "whimsical" bamboo rod...give it a try!
HELP!!!! PLEASE cover me up!
So cover them up I did...got some fabric tac and fringe...off I went to work!
