Le Premier TEN of 2011

Late to the party I am, but here it is……the top 10 “REDOUXS” I posted about in 2011 that you chose!  
Going David Letterman style, the countdown starts at #10
This Highboy and accompanying Nightstands were some of my favorite projects.  The Highboy was made from Solid Wood, and the finished top is stained in Walnut, the matching Nightstands are MDF, and the top is Fauxed in my Wood Grain Technique.  I PROMISE TUTORIAL IN 2012!!
The High Boy and Nightstands (two part post)
The Blah Bookshelf to Ballards Knockoff
The recently completed Wingback Chair Slipcover made with scraps
Inspired by “The Paris Wife”
My French Maid and her assistant
The Sad Little French Desk that was kicked to the curb


Ma Cuisine bien-aimée
Le Dresser to Bookshelf
The project I risked being run over on the freeway for….
Signs and Wonders!!  
This project was a huge hit, it was featured on a “Brag Monday” from  The Graphics Fairy
Who knew you could get so much mileage from a $12 Coffee Table, I made several signs, from this one piece of furniture, but this one was by far the biggest hit. 
 Merci, Merci, Merci!!  
Thank you for sharing all your beautiful comments, sharing your amazing talents at my link party and thank you so much for reading my silly (and franglais speaking) posts.  
I have learned much from all of you.  Have made some amazing friendships with amazing women this year. 
You know who you are 😉
I am so looking forward to another year of inspiration, motivation, and the wonder of creation from all of you.

    Your projects are all gorgeous, but I'm in total awe over the cheap bookshelf redo…everyone has one of these little bookshelves, and your redo has made it look like a much more expensive piece of furniture and could be easy for anyone to do. I tried pinning it, but my pinning button must be messed up or something.
