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!

ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape & Home Depot “Get It, Got It, Go” Summer Blog Hop

May 8th, 2014

Hello everyone! Today I’m excited to announce a second round of the fabulous DIY event I hosted last year in partnership with ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape and The Home Depot. You’ll recall last year two dozen bloggers got creative with ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape and products from The Home Depot and I showcased all of the projects in the “Ready, Set, Paint” Blog Hop of 2013.

Well great news, the event is back and this summer there will be even more projects to share. This summer’s “Get It, Got It, Go” Blog Hop will include three dozen bloggers and their creative DIY projects and I’ll be hosting links to all the projects right here – the projects featured will help inspire this year’s painting season!

I’ve been using ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape for years, it’s my go to for all things paint related when I need to tape off drawers for furniture makeovers or lines for painting stripes. For me, it won’t peel up any layers of paint underneath and still seals for protection or perfect lines, I even use it around the house to help evenly hang artwork!

I’ll be featuring all of the DIY projects here and linking back to this landing page over the course of the summer. To kick off the “Get It, Got It, Go!” event, we built this Modern Pet Bed for friends and their two pups, click on the image to read the full tutorial!
