Greetings all, and happy fall!  It’s raining today and the leaves are falling from all of the trees. It’s pretty but kind of sad, I’ll miss all those gorgeous autumn colors. Today it finally feels like winter is on its way, brrrrr!  To take our minds off the approaching chill of winter, how about a look at some inspiring projects from around the blogosphere?   Abi and I teamed up again to bring you our recent favorites.     

Here’s a wonderful wood accent wall, this one made from pallets by Chris and her husband over at Just A Girl, perfect in her son’s room!

This Drexel Heritage campaign desk was brought back to life by Mary at Because I Like to Decorate.  She’s got an all natural recipe for polishing up brass hardware too.

G’day all, hope all is well! I got back from Atlanta very very late Friday night, and it seems it took until this morning to recover!  Whew, travel wipes me out these days, and I felt like being lazy with my family for the last 36 hours. I’ll share more of what I did back east tomorrow. 

Now I’ve got my coffee and I’m ready to talk DIY!  People, you are amazing, I mean really. I just love love love reading about all of these incredible projects, what did we ever do without the blogosphere before?  Consider me completely inspired yet again this week. Amanda and I are back, teaming up to bring you our favorites in this continuing weekend series, enjoy! 

No this is not an image from a catalog, these are the newly transformed bookcases by Jilly and Mia trimmed out with new arches, aren’t they completely gorgeous?

Hello! I hope you’re all enjoying this fall weekend. The forecast for us is rain which sounds perfectly lovely to me, since it’s a great excuse to make soup and lounge in pajamas for most of the day.  Meanwhile, shall we take a peek at some of the fabulousness that is going on in the blogosphere?  Abi and I team up this week to bring you our favorites, enjoy!

We women have our decorative favorites that make us swoon, but I love hearing the man’s perspective.  Have you read about the furniture men hate?  Erin from Elements of Style fills us in.
