BOTB 11.13.11

November 13, 2011

G’day all, hope all is well! I got back from Atlanta very very late Friday night, and it seems it took until this morning to recover!  Whew, travel wipes me out these days, and I felt like being lazy with my family for the last 36 hours. I’ll share more of what I did back east tomorrow. 

Now I’ve got my coffee and I’m ready to talk DIY!  People, you are amazing, I mean really. I just love love love reading about all of these incredible projects, what did we ever do without the blogosphere before?  Consider me completely inspired yet again this week. Amanda and I are back, teaming up to bring you our favorites in this continuing weekend series, enjoy! 

No this is not an image from a catalog, these are the newly transformed bookcases by Jilly and Mia trimmed out with new arches, aren’t they completely gorgeous?
