DIY Project Parade – a place to share and search for DIY creativity

I love this time of the week – a chance to see  your creativity, your crafts, your DIY projects, your home improvement. I love visiting the links and sharing our common interest: DIY!

Last week, along with a few other things, I shared the bathroom makeover progress from the apartment renovation:

Some good things about this past week…


  • Apartment floors are finished! Ohhh and they’re sooo pretty! Just you wait and see! I’m definitely doing a happy dance over this accomplishment. Ugh. Lots of work! So glad it’s over!
  • Blinds are hung…freebies too. Mr. DIY dug them out from somewhere and I’m sure he told me where, but I think I was probably working and only heard the important part – free blinds. And “he” installed them. Thanks, babe!
  • New deadbolt installed. My impatience had me putting it right back in the box and thinking the brassy gold deadbolt with lost key and the fact that it didn’t match the brushed nickel door knob really wasn’t that important. Again, Mr. DIY rescued the day. He’s my hero.
  • Dressing room area of the apartment bedroom started. So fun!
  • Few paint touch ups completed. Since fall has arrived and the window air conditioner was no longer needed {brrrrr!}, it was removed and I could paint the window sill. And a ginormous box on the apartment wall {something for an outdated telephone line} was removed and I touched up that area too.
  • Old cheap bar stools and a little kitchen island/bar were given a little DIY magic. Such a budget friendly way to furnish the apartment since we already had this stuff just sitting around collecting dust. Saved some $!
  • Dug out some fall decorations and I’m starting to play with getting festive for fall.
Not DIY related:
  • Met up with a sweet blog friend. {Reposhture}. It’s so good talking and laughing with a friend who shares the same interests.
  • Fun fashion photo shoot where I pretended to be a photographer. I admit…I loved the little break away from months of non stop DIY.
  • Invitation to participate in the local Symphony Holiday Tour of Homes fundraiser! Such an honor!
But, life isn’t perfect and there were some pretty crappy things this week too. At times like those, I hold a pity party for one for a bit. Then I count my blessings. 
Know what? I’m beginning the official count down to vacation. 27 days. If you’re interested in doing a guest blog post for the end of October, I’d love for you to introduce your DIY and blog to DIY Show Off readers. Email me at to discuss. 🙂
What I love about today is it signals a brand new week and a clean slate for me. I love this day when I can cancel the pity party and celebrate what’s been going on in your life as I invite you to share my favorite topic. DIY! Thanks so much for being here today, friends!
