A Look Back at 2011's Projects

Last January, I posted about some decorating and building projects we hoped to complete during 2011.  

But, if you remember, I had just had rotator cuff surgery and I was not going to be able to do very much for 3-5 months.  I made a "Project List" on my side bar.  It is still up, if you want to see what the list looked like.  I will take it down next week.

Here is a look of some before and afters of my 2011 projects.

There are some items on the project list that did not get accomplished.  Their are some, that I decided not to do.  Looking back made me realize how much I DID get accomplished and I am pretty proud of Mr. Comforts and myself.

I am looking forward to 2012 and a new list of "to do's".  I have some great plans for this year and I will share them all with you.

Wishing you a healthy, happy, peaceful, prosperous New Year!

Happy New Year
Penny

  16. Penny - fantastic makeovers! I do remember seeing your kitchen table one - fabulous idea. Makes me want to roll up my sleeves for 2012. I am going to post on my design blog - my home's New Year's resolutions (what I am resolving to change in my home). Once I write them on a post I will have no other alternative than to "do them" Bravo to you for accomplishing so much. And thanks for commenting on my Home Staging blog!

    You sure got a lot accomplished in 2011. I think you are only showing some of the highlights, because I remember seeing a lot more projects than this finished!
    I bet you already have a new list ready to go. I'm hoping I get a little more done this year than I did last.
