BOTB is back!

Sunday, January 15th, 2012

Hello all, happy Sunday!  I’ve decided to bring this series back twice a month to showcase all the fabulousness going on out there in the blogosphere!  I enjoyed the break, but there’s nothing I love more than a great DIY project or a fantastic before and after, so let’s kick of the first BOTB of the year with a few favorites.  Amanda returns, teaming up with me to share a few of her favorite links too…

If a kitchen makeover is on your New Year’s Resolutions list, then be sure to read Melissa’s tutorial how to paint kitchen cabinets. See how she refinished hers at 320 Sycamore.

When Belva June emailed me a few pictures a couple weeks ago, I shared this on Facebook, but she finally wrote up a post about her Billys to Built-Ins so I had to share it here too!  She adds a space for a TV and some fresh pops of yellow, bravo girl!
