That DIY Party 3 Highlights

That DIY Party & DIY Highlights

Hellooooo, dear DIY friends! It’s hard to believe another week has flown by. I’m feeling a bit of a withdrawal from DIY and fixin’ to change that this week by digging into some DIY at last!

This past week at DIY Show Off:

You know I love me some Rust-Oleum for transforming old and ulgy into “new”. I the pleasure of attending a Rust-Oleum blogger event in Charlotte, NC with the fun opportunity to learn about and try some awesome products, make some super interesting new friends from Rust-Oleum and Lowe’s and met some of my amazing blog friends. I’ll be sharing more about what I learned, who was there, what we did and what I made as soon as it’s delivered. I can’t wait!

DIY Party Highlights

And the favorite part of my week: visiting YOU and seeing your latest DIY, even when it takes me over 4 hours and I’m still in my pajamas at 4 p.m. in the afternoon on a Saturday. Nothing like getting cozy with a laptop and accepting your invitation to see what you’ve been doing. Check out these crazy creative DIY projects…

Kathleen from Between Blue and Yellow just inspired me BIG TIME. I want a library. I need a library. One with beautiful finds and lots of books. I love every detail in her library makeover ‘after’…I’d snuggle up on that darling sofa with a good book and never leave this room.
