Misc. DIY Projects

Woo hoo!  Friday!  Friday!  Friday dance!  Friday is the perfect day to share some creative ideas to inspire weekend projects because there is a DIY linky party on Monday as usual and you’re invited! I want to see you there!  Any DIY projects planned?  How about a thrift shop or estate sale adventure? Yessssss!  That’s my plan.  Along with ignoring my fear of the power tool monster.  Time to get over that.  I’m a big girl.  Time to see the wizard for some courage because I can’t take NOT attacking some projects full force. 
I went through some of the amazing DIY projects sitting in my inbox. It’s like a treasure chest of creative ideas in there but I really need a week to organize that area.  Maybe a future tutorial which would probably only benefit me but if your inbox looks like mine, you understand. 

Here are some fabulous ideas and transformations from the deep dark recesses of my inbox (sorry my friends, I haven’t forgotten you!).  I hang my head in shame for some of these.  I meant to share them with you a lot (A.LOT) sooner but again, the inbox disaster.  🙁
