We are entering the last week of the year!

2011 has been an incredible season of my life and I am so grateful that I got to share it with you through my blog.

During this week I am going to feature here at The 36th Avenue some of the favorite projects that I got to work on during 2011

and of course some of the most amazing projects you shared with me and my readers during the Share Your Awesomeness Link Parties!

I hope these 30 Up-cycle Furniture Makoevers inspires you to look around your home during 2012 and transform your own ordinary furniture into some EXTRAORDINARY pieces!
