That DIY Party – Holiday Home Decor

Hi DIY friends! Welcome to That DIY Party! A weekly link party for DIY and holiday home decor. Show off your hard work! 

Christmas DIY party

Note: Yesterday I participated in a real life holiday home tour fundraiser for the Butler County Symphony. What fun! I have to tell you – the pressure was on to finish up the laundry room and pantry to get the first floor ready for people walking through then finishing up the holiday decorating but the reward? Meeting people who seemed to appreciate our hard work and creativity and inspiring people. I am hoarse from talking all day! Don’t get me started on talking about DIY and decorating – my shyness, anxiety and nervousness fly out the window and I don’t shut up! The positive comments and kind feedback were worth every minute of work! If you’re a local friend who visited me yesterday, thank you so much! I hope you’ll visit often and ‘stay in touch’. I loved meeting you face-to-face!

What I love about today is it signals the start of a new week and a clean slate! I love this day when we celebrate DIY. Thanks so much for being here today! My favorite part about this weekly DIY party is taking a little time during the week to visit your links, pin and share your projects while taking a little time to relax. Join me?

It’s been an awesome week at DIY Show Off! Here’s a quick round up of the DIY that’s been going on around our house {well, rental}…

and there is still a little time to enter the giveaway to win Ana White’s new book, The Handbuilt Home. I just received the copy I ordered and I LOVE this book!

Some favorites from last week’s party:

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the crate book shelf at Brandon & Shelby. We wanted to do this in the apartment bedroom, but came up with a different Pinterest-inspired plan. Isn’t this awesome?

I could look at kitchen makeovers for hours and Erin from How to Nest for less shares her awesome budget friendly amazing kitchen transformation…

I’m in love with Kristine’s entire home, including her latest vintage entryway makeover at the Painted Hive. Simple changes can make a sweet difference.

I’m not kidding when I say, I’d never get out of bed if my master bedroom suite looked this pretty. I love the gray, purple and silver color combination (and all of the DIY) in Renee’s master bedroom at the Abundant Abode…
