SNM 2010: A Year in Review

The lovely Rhoda at Southern Hospitality is hosting a Top Projects 2010 par-tay so I thought I would recap the Top 10 of SNM for you here.

1. The Red Painted Trophies. This seemed to be a favorite of the SNM readers.  Easy, cheap, and made an impact.

2. The Big Boy Bed. Even though when I try to exit out of the bed at 11:30 p.m. and try NOT to wake Grand Slam due to the squeaking, I really love how this bed turned out with the red paint.  Again, cheap, somewhat time consuming, yet impactful.

3. Painted cheap-*ss file cabinet. Free except for the knobs.  I mean, seriously…anyone can do this.  In addition, it annoys me less.  That’s a bonus!

4. Barrettes  Holder Frame. Easy.  Seems to be a hot commodity based on what folks search for here at SNM.  I made another for my niece Hope that took me about 8 months, but it was because I improvised…and failed.

5. Gallery Wall. Done on a moments notice and still needs to be tweaked.  I don’t want to rush it. However, it does bug me.  Reminds me of the four other gallery type walls about which I could post.

6. Guest Room Dresser. Fun.  I like this one.  I think it is hard to tell the difference in the photos, but I really love the light greenish color and the knobs.

7. Kitchen Hardware. I didn’t really do the heavy lifting on this one beside ordering all the knobs, returning the rejects, and then still wondering if I made the right decision.  Trust me, I still debate over whether or not I picked the right hardware.

8. Bench Redo. Easy. Cheap ($45). But I sometimes look at it and think I could add a little more depth to it.

9. Louis Chair Redo I sort of feel the same way with the chair as I do the bench.  It doesn’t seem finished to me.  I am thinking about adding a little more gray and distressing.  Yeah?

10. IKEA Lazy Susan Hack So easy I could have done this pre-LASIK with my eyes closed.  And, it has actually come in handy.

Things that I did that never were posted…. yet:

  • Another Ikea Hack — spray painted the Molnig chandelier
  • Painted my front door to blend better with the house
  • Painted the kids bathroom with some cute knobs
  • Started some min projects in the master bedroom
  • The kids art gallery wall
  • A new paver patio!
  • The Diva’s $10 mirror

Thanks to all of you who visited in 2010!  It’s been a fun year.  Special thanks to my top commentors — Angie, Beth, Jen, Jane & Sally!!

    aw! your welcome :) i love your blog, snm!
    and looking at your re-cap of the year, i can’t for the life of me figure out how you find time to do all of these amazing projects!

  2. I have been browsing online more than 3 hours lately, but I never discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It’s pretty worth sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the web will probably be a lot more useful than ever before.
