DIY Project Parade and Highlights – Part 2

DIY Show Off

Hello, DIY friends! There are so many amazing links each week. I’m trying to figure out how to include the highlights (please bear with me). I think some weeks, a few different Highlight posts throughout the week will be a great idea to get your creativity and inspiration noticed even more! This week, the features are random but I think starting next week, I’ll categorize the highlights. Thanks for your patience!

See Highlights Part 1 and check out these awesome DIY projects you may have missed last week:

One area that is really neglected in our home this year is the porch. With a summer passing by as we renovate the apartment, I’m longing to relax on this beautiful southern porch over at Dixie Delights. Dreamy!

Couldn’t you just run to the next yard sale to see if you can find something this amazing? I love Amy’s {Blissful Bee} vision and the before/after transformation is stunning. What a beautiful settee makeover!

I love that Miss Charming painted the wood on her chairs and the impact was instant updating and WOW! They look fabulous with her new chalkboard wall and pretty white frames. See more at Charming Zebra.

An organized and pretty welcoming entryway is something I’ve always longed for. Jenn at Clean and Scentsible shares her inspiring tips and beautiful styling:

I love old windows. We have a few more around here somewhere and this idea from Number Fifty Three is a great way to create wall old window wall art.

Debbie at Visual Eye Candy shares tips and a tutorial for a herringbone tiled floor. It looks amazing!

DIY Project Parade and Highlights Part 1

Hello, DIY friends! Today is the start of a new week of DIY project links. I’m so happy you’re here and can’t wait to see what you share.

This past week, we finished giving the apartment’s old laminate countertops a fresh new look using Rustoleum’s Countertop Transformations – a great way to rescue a stained/scratched countertop without removing it, measuring, cutting and installing new. Love the result!

DIY countertop and cabinets

I also shared a “how to make a bean bag toss scoreboard“. Bean bag toss is an outdoor game played by our family and who want’s to keep score in their head when there’s so much summer fun going on?

How to make a bean bag toss scoreboard

I always want to highlight all 200+ links. Seriously, you all are so amazing and I love seeing your creativity! Here are a few ideas and projects you may have missed last week. I will be including the DIY Project Parade linky party to a couple of posts this week. I’ve had a busy productive week and need more time to catch up!

DIY Highlights Part 1

Have you seen Anne’s {Design Dreams} gorgeous $5 door headboard? I love it! I swear. Between this beautiful idea and gorgeous upholstered headboards, I’m going to repurpose my sleigh bed into a boat so I can make a pretty headboard!

DIY door headboard

Oh wow! You know my love for painted floors, don’t you? Well did you see the gorgeous painted kitchen floor at Sugar and Spice? A beautiful painted and glazed diamond pattern…

painted floor

Kathy from All About Vignettes is redoing her daughter’s bedroom and I’m in love with the subtle peacock theme and gallery wall. I can’t wait to see more!  peacock bedroom

Becky from Organizing Made Fun always has awesome storage and organization solutions. This past week she shared tips for getting your shed and potting bench organized. This would be heaven in our home where tools – home improvement and gardening are scattered in the barn, throughout the house, in the basement…you get the idea. I wonder if Becky does house calls?

potting bench organization

Yesterday, I revealed how neglected our own house can get when life gets busy and shared a picture of how I look when I’m stopping by to visit you – it’s not a pretty sight but it’s so easy to think everyone is all dressed up surrounded by a spotless perfect home and the truth is…life isn’t perfect and my dark circles are not glamorous. Real life.

Let’s see what you’ve been up to. I’ll be visiting, pinning, tweeting and sharing links on Facebook this week!

This past week blogging was limited because I’ve been working on the apartment and the transformation is beginning to happen! So exciting!  That’s where I’ll be spending most of my time again this week. Again. {I could copy/paste those few sentences into my blog posts for the rest of the month! But this week I will be sharing the countertop and cabinet transformations. The pictures are piling up on my hard drive and can’t wait to share!

As always, last week’s party had so many awesome projects. I’d feature every one if I could but since I can’t, here are a few favorite highlights in case you missed them (see all links from last week here)

Molly from The Poor Sophisticate used things she already had/repurposed and recycled items from around the house to give her hallway a new look and the result is stunning!

I love affordable solutions and when I saw the DIY string globes at Desert Domicile, I fell in love…

I think this gorgeous cherry blossom bureau from Kim at Reposhture should be delivered straight to my guest room, don’t you? Unfortunately, I don’t think she’s parting with it.

You may have seen this one. Okay, usually I’m ‘writing’ my blog posts on the old outdated loveseat in the living room, where I’m also reading blog posts. And I read books on my Nook in my bed before falling asleep. After visiting Shauna at Perfectly Imperfect it dawned on me {light bulb moment!} that I need a reading and writing room exactly like hers. Except in my house. Inspiring!

Writing Room Redo 

How fabulous is this? A DIY board and batten headboard with awesome tutorial over at Todd & Lindsey creating. Such a great idea!

Robin at Happily Home After did an amazing foyer makeover keeping the budget small ($25) and impact HUGE.

Speaking of fun scavenger hunts! Here’s another awesome idea! Great for summer or fall – a nature scavenger hunt (with free printables). I think this would be a lot of fun for the kids at our upcoming family reunion! See more about hosting a Nature Scavenger Hunt from Erin at How to Nest for Less.

Here are a few DIY highlights from last week’s DIY Project Parade. Please visit the original links for full details from some pretty amazingly creative blog friends!

The DIY Project Parade is a linky party for bloggers to show off their hard work and DIY and a place to share do-it-yourself creativity and inspiration.

I apologize for being a day late this week due to some technical difficulties. I was locked out of my dashboard the past couple of days. I was getting a ‘fatal’ error message and thought for sure I killed DIY Show Off, but my blog doctor rescued me and assured me all is well!

In the meantime, I’m heading out the door to work on the apartment and will follow up soon with highlights from last week in another post. DIY status on the apartment: Floors are sanded, walls, cupboards and appliances are scrubbed. Today I’ll be working on some patching and caulking in preparation for paint! Wish you were here. I sure could use some company! ;)

Happy Father’s Day to the dads! I did a little DIY project for my mom’s husband  that I’ll share soon. Most weekends in the summer, we head to mom’s pool and get together. There’s swimming, catching up with family, playing with nieces and nephews, a cook out, volley ball and usually a round of cornhole or two.  And it’s late Sat. as I’m typing this up and still working on the gift (a DIY cornhole score board). I may have procrastinated a little too much but a quick protective clear coat tomorrow morning and it’ll be all done. Project, pictures and tutorial coming soon. :)
I miss my dad every day, especially today. I find comfort knowing he is spending every day with Our Father.
and luckily God blessed me with more than one so I have two others to celebrate today as well.  
This week I was happy to take a small break from big projects and create a DIY sign for a summer mantel

I’ll catch up with some highlights from last week’s party this week. Have a great day!

I’m back! It’s that time of the week! Time to share your latest do-it-yourself projects!

Blog posts were put on hold for a few days. I’ve been really productive the past three days on making my sister’s rental home “pretty” for when she gets here from Florida. They’re on the road right now and will be here later today! Woo hoo! There’s only so much you can do with a cheap rental and teeny tiny budget but I did have the freedom to paint and managed to fit in a few rooms in three days with some decorating. I’ll feel like the hostess of a “not too extreme” home makeover show. “Move that bus!” :) It’ll be nice to have my sister back in town and to see my niece and nephew a lot more too.

Anyway, I’ve got so much to share but I’m so exhausted and sore, I can barely move and the pictures are still on my camera. Once I’m caught up, I can’t wait to show you.

I was only able to fit in a small craft project this week which I’ll be sharing with you soon but my sister, Patti, did find a house to rent! Woo hoo! She’ll be here for good in about one week! And since I know the owner of the rental house who’s familiar with my DIY and decorating passion, I have the freedom to help Patti make the rental “home”! I’m so excited and will be patching and painting walls a lot this week while she’s packing boxes and hopefully some room makeovers to share this summer.

This past week’s party links were amazing, friends! You are so clever, so creative and I don’t know where you find the time {have you noticed I didn’t even have time to blog the past two days? That’s NEVER happened!} but I’m so inspired by your awesome talent! Here are some highlights from last week:

I LOVE stripes and this gorgeous hall reveal from The Poor Sophisticate is a must see.

DIY Project Parade

I’m working on some things that I can’t wait to share this coming week. They’re small, but once I get the small stuff caught up, I’ll be ready to move forward onto bigger things. What? You want a hint? Well, okay then!

One of the project involved demolition of a headboard…

I have some yard sale finds to share, a barn patio project and a crafty little something.

I made a wrist corsage and took prom pictures for my special needs cousin, Katie. It’s become tradition. I make a wrist corsage that matches her dress and snap some yearly photos.

I practiced photography and took some senior pictures and created graduation party invitations for a family friend…{the balloons are to protect her identity online}

DIY inspiration from the Project Parade

These links in the DIY Project Parade are inspiration to me personally this week. I’m so thankful to all of the talented blog friends who take the time to link up and show off…it’s just the motivation I need for a few things I have going on with helping my sister decorate her new home next month.

Carmel at Our Fifth House shared her DIY pegboard headboard and I’ve been looking for budget friendly DIY ideas to surprise my nephew. Isn’t this awesome? I love all of the DIY details in this room. And I need to make that bed frame too! Great job, Carmel!

My teenage niece is going to want a glam bedroom and I see a pretty DIY chandelier makeover in my near future like this beautiful one shared by Ada’s Interior Design

We’re going to need some fabric and Dear Emmeline has reminded me that repurposing vintage curtains {sheets too} is a beautiful, affordable option with yard sale season in full swing…

see the coffee table and end table tops:

My sister has an old dining room table and a thrift store eat-in kitchen table and we can’t wait to give them a ‘makeover’. The table makeover from Art is Beauty is bookmarked in our idea folder…

As soon as my sister goes back to FL to pack up the last of her things, I’m sneaking over to redo her master bedroom. I’d love to surprise her with a beautiful romantic master bedroom. Have you seen the master bedroom reveal at Raising Up Rubies? Breathtaking!

DIY project Parade linky party button

How was your week? I’d love to see what you’ve been up to. You’re invited to link up below to share your latest DIY. The other day I shared some fun kitchen sprucing up

farmhouse kitchen collage

And here are some highlights from a few DIY friends who joined the party last week:

Hollie from I’m Busy Procrastinating stopped procrastinating and shared her stunning master bedroom reveal. Here’s a sneak peek brought to you by her kitty, Gypsy {so sweet!}…

gray cat

Sarah from Cozy.Cottage.Cute. made a beautiful rustic growth chart. If it’s okay to have one for nieces and a nephew…I need one!

My do-it-yourself is usually just that…I do it myself.  Betsy, from Betsy Speert  was sweet enough to help her friend create this cozy cottage living room {lucky girl!}…

Andrea from Decorating Cents shares her beautiful kitchen reveal and what a transformation it is! I love the chocolate cabinets…yep, that’s what would make me smile everyday and that gorgeous glass tile is the icing!

kitchen before and after

What a welcome! Tausha’s entryway will charm and bring smiles the minute anyone walks through the door. Cheery and happy at Sassy Style

Tight budgets inspire creative ideas, right? Definitely. Kim’s clever ski pole lamp is the perfect (and much more fun) than the usual $$$ tripod lamp. See more (Kim’s cute ski-ing instruction included) at Reposhture.

And speaking of skimpy budgets and DIY, I LOVE how Mindy at Heart Maine Home recreated a nearly $50 rope knot book end for $9 with an awesome tutorial so you can make one too!
