My favourites of 2011

Hello, and welcome to 2012!  

I am thrilled that it is the start of a fresh new year, and I am very much looking forward to getting stuck into the projects that I have planned.  My baby starts school at the beginning of February, and while I am sure there will be tears (mine more than his!), I am excited about the new era that brings to his life, my life, and for our family dynamic in general.  It means I have 5 days a week to concentrate on my furniture (in between putting my mark on our new home, of course!)

Here is a bit of a roundup of my favourite makeovers of 2011...

I had to jump on the Union Jack bandwagon, here is my first attempt at it

And here is my second... I love them both!

I loved how the Shabby Chic Chicken Wire Hutch turned out:

This French Style Tallboy was a very satisfying transformation, made even sweeter by the fact that my client was so thrilled with it :)

The same lady commissioned me to do these French Style Chairs, and I loved how these turned out too!

This cute Hutch and Dining Suite just make me smile :)

And my absolute favourite project for the year, and the only one that I have kept for myself, are the Shabby Chic Retro Kitchen Chairs
they have already seen many happy family meals in our home, and I look forward to them seeing plenty more :)
