My Top 10 Project Picks

It has been so fun seeing all of your favorite posts of 2010!!
Let me tell you — this was probably my hardest post to do in the past year.
How can I possibly choose only TEN projects out of almost 400 beautiful ideas??!  
Every single idea linked up was wonderful. Thank you, thank you for linking them up and sharing them with me.
Here are my picks:
 Turquoise Front Door Makeover @ Beyond the Screen Door
I love the color, the aged look and the fact that it looks so happy and different. Awesome project!
 Mod Podge Show Makeover @ Posh Pilar
Are these not the happiest little shoes? Polka dots PLUS flowers = Adorable!!

Halloween Vignette @ madigan made
If you know me, you know that I adore Halloween. This was one of my favorite pictures from Halloween 2010.
Stenciled Canvas bag
Doily Bag  @ TidyMom
There are so many things I love about this project. It’s inexpensive, she used a doily which I love and it’s personalized.
 Factory Cart Coffee Table @ Pieced Pastimes
An amazing, creative and functional project.
Butterfly Chandelier @ Serendipity
This Butterfly Chandelier is so whimsical and irresistible!
 Picture Knobs Plaques @ Craft-O-Maniac
I love ideas that incorporate something personal – so these knobs really make me smile.
 How to paint crisp lines @ a little lovely
This entryway is not just a little lovely, it’s a lot lovely.
 Book Planter @ Cottage Hill
I remember when I saw this book planted for the first time. I love it just as much today.
DIY kitchen remodel @ Crae’s Creations
Such a great remodel, especially after you see the “before” pictures.
And the #1 project and winner of the handmade brooch is: 
I picked this project because it was one of the posts that inspired me to do my Beachy Bathroom and Beachy Laundry Room projects this past year, which were a huge part of my year.
Every single project linked up was wonderful – I appreciate you sharing them with me!! 
Here’s to a very creative 2011!!!!
PSIt’s Friday – my favorite day of the week!!! Come link up YOUR ideas tonight at the Weekend Wrap Up Party. The party starts at 6 pm {mst}. I can’t wait to see your latest ideas!!!!
