BOTB 8.5.12

August 5th, 2012

Hello all – time for another weekend ‘best of the blogosphere’ and wow, it’s amazing what you all create!  Amanda and I rounded up a few very clever table building projects and some other inventive ideas too – here are our picks from last two weeks, enjoy!

Inspired by a table at a local brewery, DIY Diva repurposed scrap wood to create this outdoor café table.

Ez from Creature Comforts built a table with IKEA legs, planks, and gray stain.

Now I know what to do with two planters and my deep dish pizza pan, use it to create a unique flower pot side table.

 

This barn wood coffee table by Wit & Whistle is oh so stylish with its herringbone pattern.

Best of July!

August 3rd, 2012

Happy weekend everyone, it’s roundup time!  Can’t believe it’s August already and later this month, back to school!  And then it’s fall, and then *gasp* the holidays.  What?  I know, don’t even say it.  Looking back, July was crazy busy, we accomplished so much but I’m reaaaalllly  hoping August is a lot slower, I could use a break!

Here are the top ten not-to-miss projects and posts from July.

1) We’re so proud of the Alma Project kitchen remodel; 2)  I hacked some IKEA Vittsjo shelves for the study;  3) I live with an orchid whisperer and so 4) I revamped this wood and white chest of drawers for him.

 

5) We built this X base table!  6) outdoor pillow covers are easy to sew 7) the garden is in bloom, take the tour; 8) inspired by PB Kids, I painted my friend’s son’s dresser; 9) hey we also built a potting bench, and 10) I shared ten tips for new bloggers.

To see the entire “Best Of” list from each month in 2012, look here.
