My Favorite Project from Last Year...

This past year (make that the last 6 years) has been full of projects.  We bought a "fixer-upper" and at times I think we bit off more than we could chew.  However, over time and through lots of money, we have literally remodelled EVERY room to make our house our home. 


Now we are finally getting to spend time on the details.  This is the hardest part for me.  I have no problem picking out tile for the kitchen or wood flooring for the house.  But this project was so much fun for me.  I found 8 dining rooms chairs on Craigslist for $3/each.  They were so gross.  But I painted them black and reupholstered the cushions with burlap.


Then my incredibly, talented husband created these stencils for me. 




I absolutely love the way they turned out.   He also made me some stencils to look like the European house numbers.  I have plans to use those this year on all sorts of things.  Can't wait!
