DIY Project Parade

Did you DIY this weekend? I didn’t (last minute party at my house so I was busy with DIY housecleaning and hosting) but I have some things to show off for others then link up and show off your latest project!

Click the links for more details:

Life All Around – Dawn claims to be a beginner but her built-in shelving is a success!Tales and Trials (tutorial here) – Abby makes it look so easy!

Make your own carseat cover – Simply Designing shows you how!

Pamela – From My Front Porch to Yours gives her mantel a new look. I love her technique!

This one is SO cute! She added safety straps and reupholstered an old high chair. Check out the details at Notes from a Very Red Kitchen!

I love this foot stool rescue too from Citified Country Girl
Here is her post:

Reupholstering During…

To give my $3 foot stool a little something extra, I lined the inside with black velvet. Adhered the velvet with spray on adhesive and trimmed the top.
