Five years ago, there wasn’t one item in my house that was a thrifted or DIY project. I didn’t really feel like I knew how to DIY things, and it never occurred to me to shop for home decor items anywhere other than places like HomeGoods or Kirkland’s. While I still shop at those stores, I’m now learning how to mix store bought items in with thrifted and DIY items and I love my home even more. Now I can’t walk into any room in my house without seeing things that I made or upcycled with my own hands.
It’s Monthly DIY Challenge day! A quick recap for those of you who are new around here.. each month we get together with a few of our favorite blogging friends, and we each create a unique project based on the same item or theme. This month our challenge item was leather.
Happy Thursday! Today we’re participating in Themed Furniture Makeover Day. Here’s a quick recap if you’re new here. TFMD is a monthly furniture makeover challenge. Each month, we’re given a new theme and tasked with making over a piece of furniture based on that theme. This month the theme is “Coastal”.
It’s time for another Monthly DIY Challenge! If you’re new here, each month we team up with some of our favorite bloggers and each create a unique project using the same item or theme. This month, we’re teaming up with Royal Design Studio Stencils to create a fun stenciled project.
It’s been a little quiet around here lately. Have you noticed? I thought I’d stop by and let you know what I’ve been up to and why you haven’t seen a new project in the past week or so.
Today’s post is a little different from what we usually share. If you’re a blogger, or would like to start a blog someday, this post is for you. For our nonblogging friends, we won’t be mad if you skip this one. We can hang out next week when we’ll be sharing a new DIY project.
