Best of May

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013

Hello friends, how’s your summer shaping up? I spent the morning going through my linen closet clearing out everything I don’t use anymore. One closet down, plenty more to go in anticipation of a yard sale later this month.

I’m taking a break this week from the takeaway series but I’ll bring it back soon – meanwhile, here are the top ten not-to-miss posts from May!

I spent a day sprucing up my friend’s outdoor room; our home was featured in Refresh magazine (plus a peek behind the scenes). Here’s the how-to on the DIY mosaic tile outdoor table and a creative spin on Hawaiian quilting with this aloha inspired pillow.

I kicked off a summer campaign for Scotch Blue Painter’s Tape and Home Depot with this textured panel dresser makeover, made some fabric covered storage boxes, and shared a full home tour.  Three fun decorating topics appeared on the blog in May, including decorating around a leather sofa, the power of pink, and keeping your sanity during a home renovation.

Enjoy your day,
