Hey everyone, welcome to the weekend! I’m sure many of you have some special plans for Mother’s Day, we’re headed out to Sonoma for a leisurely lunch in the Plaza and some relaxation in the sun. I don’t want to clean or cook anything, and I think a nap and a pedicure are in order :) It’s ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ weekend, here is the list of inspiring projects and spaces Amanda and I rounded up, enjoy!
Visit all the spruced spaces in the One Room Challenge linked to over at Abby M. Interiors, her bathroom makeover is divine!
Here’s an impressive home improvement project that’s a headache but wow what a result! Learn how to expose wood beams in Jaime’s story at What’s My Letter.
Make an upholstered Mughal inspired window cornice with a tutorial at Fresh American, love the antique silk fabric!
Precisely cut MDF boards resulted in this Greek key wall treatment, find all the instructions at All Things Thrifty.
I have to share this Ikea hack with with you, my friend Heidi got the idea from Preciously Me and combined a stained plank with IKEA’s Akurum upper cabinets and furniture legs from Etsy to create her own contemporary breakfast nook credenza. I snapped a pic at her place last week, it’s very sleek and stylish with a mid century vibe.
Another IKEA hack: these DIY tufted banquette benches by Back on Festive Road were Besta cabinets in a former life.
Craft marbleized bowls and vases with Elise Blaha’s nailpolish technique.
