    I soo love this list! I bought my husband Ana’s book for Christmas and he just completed the platform bed for our son. So excited to copy more awesome stuff from you! 😉

    So many things that I love…especially that distressing with vaseline one! How easy….even (this) cavewoman could do that…

    #8 was definitely one of my favorites… along with your Anthro cabinet! What a great, productive year! All the best in 2013. See you on the flip side.

    Great list!!! My fav, which i hope to do soon is the love sign. i have been meaning to ask tho, what kind of fabric did you use to make the rosettes out of. i know we use different names for things, but at least it’ll give me an idea!!

    Wow, such fabulous projects. Love them all, but my favorite is the LOVE wood sign.
    Happy 2013 to you.

    I have also completed several of your projects and made my husband buy me some new tools! Including the kreg jig, that I love! lol! I also had the courage to attempt some things on my own, like a bridge for my entertainment center! Love it! That hall tree is definitely on my list for this year, just trying to get a little more courage! Thanks for all the inspiration and great ideas!
