As always I love to look through the fabulous projects that were linked up (check out last month’s here) and highlight a few. And as always you did not disappoint!
I’m sharing Tamara’s room because it’s super cute and because she shares how to make your own plantation shutters!:
WHAT. Yes, she made them. I’m totally impressed, it looks so good!
You know I have to share a kitchen makeover each month and Erin’s is beautiful:
I’m telling you – it does not take a lot of money to make a huge change to a space. Just time and patience. Which sometimes are harder to come by than money. ;)
I’m dying to start our kitchen!
I believe a coat of white can update just about anything and Tyler’s fireplace and built ins are a great example of that:
That mirror is fantastic too!
I love white kitchens and white built ins but I was just saying last night (to myself) how much I love deep rich colors too. I crave contrast – like Colleen’s dining room:
She used a deep navy blue and with the white…perfection! I love how wood tones look up against darker colors too – grays and blues especially. Beautiful!
Of course I can’t leave out a good DIY – Angela shared how to get that popcorn texture off your ceilings:
AND she shares how they finished it off after they were done. Again, not an expensive job, but it takes some patience.
Tori used a pricey bone inlay dresser as her inspiration and did the look on her own for a fraction of the price:
I think that is stunning! She shares the how to here.
And finally…this is brilliant. Brilliant I tell you! And one of those I put away in the “duh, why didn’t I think of that” category. Tasha shares how she made her own art for cheap and got that canvas texture on it as well:
I’ve been putting off a similar project because I was trying to figure out how to get the canvas look when I was done. AWESOME.
Love them all! If you’d like to be considered for a highlight next month, please include a link to TDC or this button in your post:
