Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a wonderful, restful weekend.
I’ve been seeing alot of blogs and they have pictures of SNOW!!! Oh, I’m soooo jealous! I have to say though, that I wore a sweatshirt all day long today because our temperatures have dropped here in sunny California. It was sunny, but cool enough to turn the heat on this morning. I’m lovin’ it.
There were 92 link ups to #7 Party this week! Might I add, that they were all amazing. I can’t even begin to tell all of you how much I appreciate you linking up, sharing, and inspiring me and all of my followers. THANK YOU!!!
I also want to remind you that I have another party going on…. Christmas Craft Tutorial.
You can click HERE to see the wonderful projects that have been linked up and all of them have tutorials so you can make them yourself. I will be highlighting the 3 most viewed crafts that were linked up this past week on Thursday evening.
I’m also teaming up with a few other bloggers for yet ANOTHER link up party (which will be announced on Wednesday) and you definitely don’t want to miss out on this one!
Did I mention that I’m changing my name to “Party Queen”? Boy, 3 parties goin’ on. I’m lovin’ it.
Let’s take a look at the highlights from this week. These ladies made the daunting look totally do-able!
Heather from Common Place Beauty painted this gorgeous Vintage Cabinet with Annie Sloan’s Old White Chalk Paint.
Heather mentions in her post that this is her FIRST real furniture re-do. Can you believe that? She used dark wax and everything! I can’t wait to see what the next re-do is going to look like. Goodness Heather, I’m thinkin’ you got the hang of it!
Mary from The Decorative Paint Brush shared this amazing end table that she turned into a game table.
She built the design of it around a checkerboard. Isn’t it amazing? I love it! I’m a sucker for checks!
Okay, I’m just going to say it, “To paint this table like this is VERY DAUNTING to me!” BUT, I bet (thinking positive here) with some tape and a few stencils I might be able to pull some sort of design off. Right? Right! But from the looks of it…I’m thinkin’ this baby is hand painted by Miss Mary and her decorative paintbrush :-).
When you’re out “blog stalkin” you need to stop by Housewives of Riverton. Jenn decorated her daughter’s nursery and made covers for the switch plates and plug-ins…
Guess what she made them out of? Scrapbook paper and Mod Podge! Great idea Jenn!
Need a great tutorial for an amazing Cornice Headboard? Laura from Corner House Blog (and her hubby) made this lovely headboard for their master bedroom.
Marcy from the AntiqueChase shows us how we can spruce up our book bundles. She says, “I was walking the house looking for more quick and easy stencil projects and spotted some bare naked books…”
