2014 Pick Of The Litter Projects

Another year over.

The days march on the same no matter if we would like them to speed up or to slow down.

In the world of blogging with a life of making projects, it's nice to be able to look back and see concrete evidence that I did in fact accomplish something on the to-do list.

Here are the top 8 Bliss Ranch "pick's of the litter" for 2014.

6 pain-in-the-butt-to-finish chairs that took a year, but started off 2014 with their reveal. 

This thing is LOUD and PROUD, and rocks on at #2 sons house.

A vintage headboard updated a mudroom bench-thanks to Albert for the inspiration.

This is probably my favorite project of 2014, click to see how this $1 bench started out.

Nightstand upcycled into a kitchen fit for a princess.
 1 pc. of shelving + 1 vintage Hanson scale + Maison Blanche La Chaux Lime Paint = 

This sign was a labor of love for someone special.

My #1 project for 2014 is the one that landed a page in Old Home Journal Magazine

Made from an old window and barn wood 

 So out with the old,
and in with the new,
Welcome 2015

  1. You have the cutest litter ever.

  2. I love you picks of the litter Bliss! It's fun to look back over the past year, don't cha think?

    love them all, but #1 might be my favorite--heck, I can't say that because they all are just so awesome! Look forward to seeing what you come up with in the new year!

  3. You know, one by one they're pretty incredible - but all together in one post?
    Mind blowing Bliss - just mind blowing !
    Happy New Year !

  4. You already know I loved every one of those projects but I'm going to tell you again. You rocked it in 2014!!!

  5. Everything you did was amazing, so is the little cook! Happy New Year.

  6. Lots of great projects -- my favorite is that little boy sign -- precious! Happy New Year, Bliss!

    PS -- got my cake tester and OMG! It's gorgeous! Thank you!

  7. I'm new to Bliss Ranch and love all your projects!! But my favorite is the Minnesota, Mud Pie Making Station too! Growing up in GA, we used to make mud pies all the time (with nothing that spectacular). If we'd had a station like that, we would've been the hit of the neighborhood! Thanks for posting and for the great childhood memories :-)

  8. It was an excellent year for you dear Bliss!

  9. Love them all, but my special fave is still the mudpie station. It's an award-winner. my award. The greater curmudgeon foil medal for first place.

  10. I think you meant; "Out with the old and in with.. more old." hehe
    BLISS! You are a powerful force of creativity, inspiration and astonishingly unique and special creations.
    Happy New Year my friend!! xo ~Shan

  11. Loved the bar. Wanted to see the chairs but the link does not work. Tried it several times. :(

    1. Thanks for letting me know. All fixed now.

  12. I have a half written year in review post myself that I need to get done. It is fun to look back. You have some fabulous projects lady. Every single one is full of personality just like you. I look forward to what you will accomplish in 2015.

  13. Every one of your pieces is the best for a different reason each. Some were even lucky enough to get them as gifts which was probably blissful to receive. Awesome year for you, Bliss!!

  14. Great projects...all of them! Looking forward to more in this new year!

  15. You always come up with the most unique projects each year. I love that sign about a little boy! Looking forward to seeing what you come up with this year now.

  16. The mud pie station is my favorite!!

  17. Wow! You really took on some big projects last year and I can't wait to see what you've got up your sleeve for us in 2015! Congrats again on the magazine feature!

  18. What a roll call, no-one could top that.
    I love them all, but I love No. 1 the best and you so deserved that feature.
