Top 10 projects of 2012...

This was a busy year for us at the cottage.  I quit my teaching job and fell into a fabulous painting job.  Travis is moving up at his company which is translating into more hours of overtime for him.   Despite how busy we are we still find time to do home improvement projects.  Some couples go away on vacations, we rip out portions of our cottage and rebuild them ; o )

Here is a run down of the top projects we tackled this year:

NUMBER 1:  The Kitchen Re-Re Do

NUMBER 2:  Master closet redo

NUBMER 3:  Boy's room bunks

NUMBER 4:  Map Ceiling

NUMBER 5:  Making a kitchen cabinet more functional

NUMBER 6: Anne's room redo

NUMBER 7:  Gruene Dresser Makeover

 NUMBER 8:  Watchmaker's Cabinet Redo

NUMBER 9:  Laundry room screen door

NUMBER 10:  Clockwork

So those are our top 10 projects for 2012.  We are really hoping to tackle the library build in early 2013 so stay tuned for the drama  fun that will bring ; o )

  1. Hi Tricia! I'm so glad to stop by here today. Pretty sure I've visited you before but didn't realize you were in Texas. The Gruene Hall sign caught my attention. Can't wait to poke around your home a little more. :)

    1. Love Gruene! We hope to retire near there someday. Welcome to my blog!

  2. Tricia it was fun looking back at your projects/transformations! Looking forward to what you share in the coming year!
