Hello and happy weekend all. If off to NYC today and I can’t thank you enough for sharing your insider tips and suggestions on what to see and where to eat – the forecast is rain but we won’t let that stop us from having some very fun adventures. Today is another edition of ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ and Amanda and I rounded up some favorites projects and ideas, enjoy!
Oh we love those fab before and afters and this upholstered linen and nailhead table is a stunner, full how to over at Bliss at Home.
The $20 IKEA sawhorse table legs were used to create two desks in this week’s features, the first is a glam version in gold leaf spied over at IKEA Hackers.
… and the second is a rustic wood top version created with wood flooring at An Oregon Cottage. See both links for the supply list that gets you two totally different looks!
Cast your own concrete firepit for those chilly fall nights with a tutorial by ManMade.
Gina at Shabby Creek Cottage shared her tips for refurbishing the trim or frame around the exterior of an old window.
These charming window shutters were once bed slats (say what?) – read all about it over at Vintage News Junkie.
What a great idea for an IKEA pendant – spray paint it a bright color so it pops! See it in Stacy’s kitchen at Not Just a Housewife.
Reinvent plastic flowers as plaster coated flower votives with Amy’s project featured at Design Mom.
What a great gift idea, bound colorful notebooks created with stamped cardstock, beautiful! More pretty pictures and how to instructions over at Damask Love.
Craft your own color block candles with crayons! These look like they came from a boutique, get the full how to over at Brit + Co.
Make geometric string lights for a dose of whimsy around the house with a simple template from Hello Hydrangea.
There are two weeks of new posts over at Best of DIY, featuring ten more inspiring projects, find them here. AND we updated all the galleries with a few new projects you may not have seen before, take a look around!
Enjoy the holiday weekend !
