~the best of 2011~

 2011 was a great year.
I thought I'd take you month by month of some of my favorite posts of  2011, starting with January.
Above I showed you how to disguise a ugly cooler in a large Ikea basket.
This is great for parties and large gatherings.
You can view the post here.
 In February I took apart a old trunk that was passed on to us when my husbands sister suddenly passed away. After sitting in our yard for years it was starting to deteriorate.
I salvaged some of the wood and made this sign.
The saying is appropriate for how we feel about Debbie.

 In March I teamed up with The Polished Pebble to create 
inexpensive wall art out of old botanicals.

 In April I found this fabulous ship painting at a thrift store.
One of my best scores!
You can see the post here.
 In May I was honored to be able to help with the interiors on a house that was rebuilt after the previous one burnt to the ground after a horrific murder took place.
You can read the tear jerking story here.
 In June I showed you a quick 5 minute makeover on our hallway.

 In July I made a whole bunch of picture frames using reclaimed wood.
To see them all, click here.
 Using reclaimed barn wood and old sign letters, I made this great big huge sign in August.
It's one of my favorites.

 In September we welcomed a new puppy to our family!

 These DIY key hooks were fun!
