First, let me say a huge thanks to all who participated; I was very excited about the response to my very first party! And, as I knew, it was a lot of fun to spend the majority of my blog surfing checking out what you guys were up to.
As for the Lauren Cochran Photography giveaway (either a free session or 1 hour creative photography/editing session), the winner is Jami from Freckled Laundry!! Email Lauren at email@example.com.
On to my favs this week…it’s so hard to say which are my favorite! Number one, all of you guys are brilliant and they all really are so unique and creative. Two, I know the effort and creativity that goes into each project, large and small. I know what it is to sweat over a piece of furniture or craft something with steady hands. So, let me say, that while I’m always drawn to different projects, I appreciate each and every single one!
What a unique wardrobe from Kristine at the Painted Hive…love that stain and copper paint technique!
What a huge impact Kindra from At Home with K made in her bathroom makeover…on a budget too! Amazing!
Andrea at a dash of parsley took on a beast of a project…and whipped it out! Go check out an awesome DIY moment!
Who can resist a gorgeous white china cabinet/hutch?? Melanie and her hubby of The Frosted Gardner cranked out another beau-ti-ful piece!
Love the look of a burlap pillow but not so crazy about the scratchy action?? Head over to Dream Home to see her great tutorial for these cute monk’s cloth pillows…great texture without the razor burn.
Oh, my sweet friend Lisa from The Pennington Point. She’s amazing…a mom, a homeschooling mom, creative genius, kitchen reno-er, and she literally built that buffet with her own hands. She also painted all the chairs white, and built the floating shelves…all in 5 days! I hope she doesn’t mind me mentioning it, but will you guys say a prayer for her? Her dad is in ICU after some heart problems…i’ll let you know what I hear from her!
Aaahhh….this is everywhere, but Jami, you really outdid yourself with this faux zinc nightstand! Go check out Freckled Laundry to see the tutorial.
Definitely take the time to see this brilliant “mudroom” makeover at Maillardville Manor. Love those green stripes…Fabulous!!
Anne Marie at Twice Lovely painted this sideboard, as she calls it, a sultry gray to make it over. This is one of my favorites of the last few months….I mean, look at that beautiful stain finish on top!! If you’ve ever done it, you need to know it’s not easy. She makes it look so!
Oh. My. Goodness. This pantry makeover at House of Smith’s is to die for. If only I could be this organized and stylish…in my pantry! I was literally blown away!
But my favorite??
Had to be this….
Ashley, at Edge Designs, made over this armoire (which is gorgeous in and of itself) into a changing station for her daughter. Gorgeous…and I need to see the rest of that room; it’s lovely!
Thank you guys, so very much, for participating!! It was a ton of fun for me, and I’m looking forward to this week. I’m going to open it on Friday afternoons so you have all weekend to enter your projects. Don’t forget to tell your friends since it’s a brand new baby party and no one knows it’s out there, and come link up!! Can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to!
