I’m ba-ack! I actually got back on Monday, but it’s taken me a while to get back into the swing of things. Those who participate weekly may notice I just visited your links and left comments today. I have really been running behind on things and am struggling to catch up.
As always, there were some very impressive projects and furniture pieces shared a couple of weeks ago. Here are three of my favorites.
Cassity from Remodelaholic and her $15 headboard made out of kitchen cabinet doors. I’m just going to speak the truth, here. There are a lot of DIY projects out on blog land, HGTV, in magazines, etc…that clearly look like a DIY project. Do you know what I mean? Someone would look at it and say, “oh, you made that yourself out of some old cabinet doors.” I saw this headboard and it looks like she ordered it out of the Pottery Barn catalog. It looks like a $1500.00 headboard, not a $15 one. To me, that’s what good DIY is all about. Cassity even shares a materials list, plans, and step-by-step directions on how to build one for your home.
Finally, Ann Marie of Twice Lovely scores the mother-of-the-year award with her puppet theatre and French play kitchen. Now, I have a pretty cool mom. She drove me to play practices and to work. She gave me everything I needed to start my business. She proof reads all of my blog posts. All of that said, I wish she had made me this kitchen. Can’t have it all, I guess, huh, mom?
You have to check out the piece of junk furniture Ann Marie used to make these adorable pieces. She is a DIY genius.
Now, ladies, you’ve had two weeks and most of the country has had decent weather, so I’m expecting great things. I can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to!
Here are the rules for this get together…
