Top Projects of 2014

When I was gathering the info for my top projects of 2014 post,   I realized how busy H and I were in 2014!   Our biggest project was building the new greenhouse.    Our big apple tree in the back yard died and we decided to build a green house where the tree was.

I drew up the plans and H made my dream come true!

H recycled some doors, headboards, and foot boards to make my greenhouse "furniture"

Our next project was to repaint the interior and exterior of the old potting shed.

I am still working on the inside and hope to finish it in 2015

One of our biggest projects was to clean up the mess in the studio.....

I now have a nice place to store seasonal items and do crafting projects

We also made Kyleigh a play area in the back part of the studio

I opened a booth in June.....

H tore off the old back porch and made a new one from a vintage head/foot board.

We added some new furniture pieces to the front porch....

H built a faux fireplace for the front porch from a top that was once on a bedroom dresser

We made a wall for the family room from some doors and an arched window

What's on our project list for 2015?   I have some exciting plans for the kitchen!

Happy New Year!
