Wednesday, September 4th, 2013

I failed to roundup the best of July earlier this summer so I’m including both today, here are the not to miss posts from August and July on the blog!

The guest room got a few upgrades; I was inspired by the tiled staircases of Santa Barbara; many of you agreed with the reasons to choose laminate kitchen countertops; a dresser got a new look with blue paint.

I styled a rustic & refined dining room for World Market and began a color series exploring the following: red / yellow / purple / green / coral. More colors to follow including tomorrow’s look at orange (‘tis the season!)

I posted my favorite black & white films and many of you chimed in too (great comments!); I featured some tips for growing and caring for lavender. Thanks for your input on hardwood vs. lookalike tile; some DIY personalized notecards you can make; mixing wood tones; and the completion of the painted bathroom cabinets with a step-by-step.

I’m so grateful you all continue to come back, thank you so much for reading!

Best of July!

Friday, 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.

The winners of the past two giveaways were announced here and here, emails sent to the winners so check your inbox.  Another round of ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ coming up on Sunday, it might be the best roundup yet!

Have a great weekend everyone.
