Feature Friday

Once again, these bloggers are spectacular! Who knows how I stumbled on them, but am I glad I did. First up…

Room to Inspire is just that—inspiring! For starters, she is wonderful at decorating for Halloween! Take a look at this little vignette that she made. Lucky for us, she gives a tutorial on how to put it together.roomto1

You know how Pottery Barn likes to charge…oh hundreds of dollars for items? She’s taken it on herself and decided to make her own growth chart. How cute!

Room to Inspire also leaves room to thrift! She purchased this table for $7.50! It certainly didn’t look as gorgeous as it does now, but isn’t it perfect in its new home?rooms3

And finally, look what she did with some crown molding. She turned it from this…

Whitney and Ashley over at Shanty2Chic have one great idea after another. Every post of chuck full of some DIY project, and I love every one of them! I’m sure we’ve all seen these ugly pumpkins at the store, right?

I have been staring at my kitchen island front for days and pondering! I have three "Southern Living at Home" tin squares that I can paint and put on there! Thank you for the inspiration and the super fun sites! Be blessed.
