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 :)

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!

    Great recap of your desk makeovers, Debbie – I would have a hard time choosing a favorite, too!

    I would love to go to a blogging conference – I don’t know if it’s going to happen this year, but it’s definitely on my “bucket list”. Enjoy the last week of the year!
