Favorites of 2011

Wow!  What a year 2011 has been!!  For both me personally, and for Twice Lovely.
I began 2011 completely out of commission with morning sickness at the start of my 4th pregnancy.  But thanks to the postings from my good friend Cara and the loyalty of my lovely readers, we all made it through until I was able to pick back up with the refinishing at the end of February.  There was a flurry of projects through mid April, when things began to really slow down as I (and baby) grew larger and larger.  I came to a screeching halt with the birth of baby Alek in the beginning of August, but have ended the year feeling rejuvenated, inspired, and reinvigorated in my furniture refinishing.  I have high hopes and high expectations for this blog and my furniture business in the new year, and I hope you’ll join me along the way!
Here’s a few of my very favorite projects from the past year.
#1 – Damask Dresser
(Certainly an internet favorite, and mine as well.
Ironically, it was the most difficult piece for me sell.  Go figure!)

Can’t wait to see what 2012 has in store!  Happy New Year to you all!
