DIY – Do it Yourself {favorites of 2012}

Favorites from 2012Looking back at all my furniture makeovers, my favorites have to be the desks and a couple of table makeovers.  It was hard to choose.

Last week I showed you 6 of my dresser makeovers, I loved them too!

Something happens to me, as a DIYer, I spend so much time with each piece I fall in love with them.  It’s hard to let some of them go, but I do 🙂

(Click on the titles to see all the details of each one that I chose.)

It’s been a fun year, lots of makeovers and sales.

But it hasn’t been all work, there’s been some play too.

I went to two blogging conferences, Haven and Southern Bloggers (still need to blog about this one).

The thing I loved the most about the conferences was meeting so many of the bloggers that I love and admire.

It’s been a great year.

I’m spending this last week with family~they’re my favorites too, but there’s no making over them 😉

Come on 2013~I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and get busy.

Happy New Year to you and yours!
