These Are a Few of My Favorite Things 2013

My favorite things?  Just throwing out a review of some of my favorite projects from this past year.  Sometimes, I think the review is like childbirth.  You forget the pain, forget the mess, forget the labor you went through and only remember the love you instantly felt as soon as the "child", er, project is born.  

While I continued to love my bright, happy colors, I also fell in love with the natural wood project this year.  I am not sure if working with all of this wood and tools has increased my testosterone level or what, but I found myself saying things like, "That wood is too pretty to paint."  And, "You don't paint wood that is that pretty."

Projects such as this bench

and island

and chalkboard,

and the alder wood on this wine rack screamed to be left alone.

So while I still paint the majority of pieces, the manly side of me learned to appreciate the beauty of natural wood this year.  I am sure men all over are sighing a collective, "Amen!"

  5. I agree, sometimes wood is too beautiful to paint. Are you familiar with buggy and blue pine? My kitchen cabinet doors are made of that pine and I love them as they are. Blessings and smiles, Emilou :-)
