Lessons Learned: My Favorite Projects {March 30th}

OH ME OH MY! It’s always so hard just to pick a few fabulous projects to feature from my Linky Party, but here’s my Top 5! These peeps have totally inspired me and make me want to get out my paint brush (or sewing machine, oven mitt, and anything else crafty)!

First up is this wonderful technique shared from Jenna at SAS Interiors. She teaches you how to Stain a Cabinet Using Glaze. I definitely need to try this in my hall bathroom! And you need to see Jenna’s before and after transformation of the entire bathroom, too! Just gorgeous.

So I’ve made a fabric scrap wreath in the past, but this Pillowcase Spring Wreath from Homespun with Love is such a smart idea! I have some funky polka dot pillowcases just sitting in my linen closet. Now I know what to do with them! LOVE this idea.

Ok, now it’s time to get crafty! Craft, Interrupted created an adorable monkey wreath and scrap banner using $1 plastic tablecloths. Talk about smart…and ADORABLE! Make sure you click over to see the banner cause it’s too cute to miss!

Next we have an amazing furniture transformation from A Sunday Afternoon! Sunday (yes, that’s her real name) scored this amazing farmhouse hutch and completely transformed it with a coat of aqua paint. PLUS she made her own chalk paint! Visit her site for instructions, and make sure you tell her how much she ROCKS!

And finally we have some FABULOUS striped walls from Liz Marie Blog. I’m a HUGE fan of hers (and her super cool styling and furniture transformations). You could spend hours on her website browsing through her projects. Make sure you stop by and say HELLO!

That’s it for this week! Thanks to everyone who linked up to my PARTY!

So what’s on the agenda for this weekend? I’m getting so close to finishing my master bedroom makeover, WHOO HOO! Sunday I hope to finish the wall treatments, lamps and wall art. Maybe I’ll have a big reveal in a week or two… but I’m sure some minor tweaks are in order first!

What are YOU up to this weekend?
