Friday Favorites - Week 334



It's FriYAY!! Summer is slowly winding down...school has almost started for my kiddos, the pool will soon close (boo) but the heat will remain for a bit (yay). August has come and will soon be gone, the Sunday of Summertime. I love all the fall flowers, fresh produce from the garden and warm nights spent on the patio with family, friends and a glass of cool crisp wine. May you all enjoy the last bits of summer and drink them in, all the way to your toes and sigh with the knowledge that you survived yet another great one!

Friday Favorites - Week 333

Welcome to the Friday Favorites Linky Party!! I love Friday's and so do my kids, we have pizza and a family movie night along with much needed snuggle time on the couch. Friday's are fun for all sorts of reasons, it's the start of the weekend, maybe a camping trip, extra free time to finish another DIY project or just coffee time to curl up with a library book. Whatever reason you have for enjoying Friday's, I'm sure it's great - Happy Friday!!

Friday Favorites - Week 332 - Cork Coasters

Woohoo, it's Friday!! It doesn't seem to have the same impact during the summer as the school year but I'll still take it...Some of you may already have your children back into their full school routine. We have till the end of this month to soak up any loose rays at the pool and finish up swim lessons and summer camps. 

On to my pick for this week's Friday Favorites Feature...with the start of school soon, I'm always looking for cool teacher gifts and I was just blown away by how cute these Personalized Cork Coasters turned out over at HipMamasPlace.com. Swing by and show her a bit of love and then go paint some of your very own!

Friday Favorites - Week 331 - DIY Feature

Happy rainy Friday from Virginia! I'm in the midst of painting our master bathroom today, so paint clothes and a messy bun are in full order around here. My latest completed project...yes, I did say completed (I have a mess of things started) is this DIY jewelry holder

My pick for this week's Friday Favorites Feature is this amazingly creative bedside table from Pillar Box Blue that she made from a wine crate, aren't those legs fantastic?

DIY Jewelry Holder from an Upcycled Door

I love summer!! Not only do I love the warm weather but I feel like I can tackle my mile long DIY to do list and finish it in only a day! That never happens...but I do check items off and add new ones!

My latest DIY is this jewelry holder that I made for our neighbors teen daughter. I've been helping make over her room and she needed a place to put all of her pretty baubles instead of the top of her dresser. 

DIY Jewelry Holder - Upcycled Door - LeroyLime

The shutter was FREE, can't beat that! It's actually half of a folding shutter door that we removed from our laundry room closet area. The doors were never shut and the laundry room closet is pretty enough to leave exposed, so we removed the doors and hardware. The other half of this door, I have on our mantle. I quickly took a sander and roughed up the edges a bit for more of a chippy paint look and then painted the wooden knob, that I kept when I cut the door in half, and the entire edge with two coats of chalk paint.

I drilled three holes on the larger top section of the door to add three door knobs but when screwing one of them in, it broke...it happens...oh well, I had just finished organizing my hubby's tools in the garage and knew I had a few hooks left over from an IKEA haul, so I added those instead.

The only purchase I made for this project was a box of white cup hooks that I predrilled before screwing in. The ones on the sides I placed at 12 inches apart to allow for necklaces to hang. The bottom row is great for bracelets or more necklaces and the middle portion of the door, is the perfect spot to keep earrings untangled and paired together. 

I attached a large hardy picture hanger hardware on the back and can now say that this jewelry holder is feeling glamorous and is so happy not sitting in the wood pile in our garage.

Friday Favorites - Week 328 - DIY Wedding Sign

Happy Friday everyone!! I hope you are all having fun in the sun soaking up lots of natural vitamin D and enjoying summer now that it's in full swing!

Who doesn't love a summer wedding? I fell in love with this DIY Rustic Wedding Sign that The Country Chic Cottage posted on myprintly.com. I've always been a little hesitant to paint a sign but this tutorial made it look so easy, I can't wait to make one for myself, with a different phrase of course...or maybe just an arrow. The sky's the limit on what you can create.

Friday Favorites - Week 326 - Chocolate

Happy Friday and happy "official" summer!! We've already had a bunch of excitement in our house. 1 Ambulance ride to the ER, 2 baseball games, 3 trips to the library, 4 Dr. appointments and 5 staples (from the kiddo who rode to the ER in an ambulance) oh my! The staples have been removed, no concussion was had and fingers crossed the rest of the summer slows down a bit, whew!

Our youngest turns three on Monday and her favorite treat is anything chocolate, so this week's features will deliciously melt in your mouth, enjoy!
