Top 10 of 2010

Rhonda over at Southern Hospitality is hosting a Top 10 of 2010 party! What a fun way to look back at our favorite projects from this year! Make sure you head over there to check out everyone's favorite projects!

While in no particular order this first project might actually be my top project. Who could forget all the blood, sweat and tears that went into refinishing the stairs?? This was a huge project.. I'm still not ready to finish the rest of our stairs!

And to continue with the entry I loved the difference painting the front door black made!

My master bedroom got a mini-facelift with this next project. The damask stenciled accent wall! I still love this one!

One of my favorite furniture transformations was Monica's armoire. It was certainly not an easy one!

This golf course project was the perfect addition to our basement. And it made the perfect gift for Mr O'!

Our powder room got a little painting too.. The cherry cabinets were all painted black!

How could I forget painting all the door knobs?? It took a while to do them all but it was so worth it! They look brand new!

While this wasn't actually a project it was a big change in my dining room... the new chandelier. That traveled the east coast for 6 months! It was so worth the wait!

The kitchen island got a makeover this year.. I painted it black!

And lastly, the chalkboard wall! Such a fun addition to our kitchen.


  1. The damask stenciled accent wall! I LOVE IT. I think it was my favorite!

    Happy New Year!

  2. Wow, you were certainly busy in 2010! I absolutely love the refinished staircase!

  3. Great projects! I love your chalkboard wall! I wish I had thought of that when I home schooled my boys way back when - they would have loved it!

  4. That is such a great collection of projects, hard to pick favourite!
    I love that you stick your pinky out too when taking photos (re photo of powder room).
    Happy New Year.
