DIY Projects from Blog Friends!

I asked a few days ago for y'all to post your best DIY project.  I couldn't choose just one, so here they are! 

Abs + Husband @ Tales and Trials redid their dining room and added Wainescotting!

Before:



After:



Adding Wainescotting definitely adds value to your home plus gives you such a clean and crisp look!  Great job Tales and Trials

Sherri over @ Design to Shine bought some shutters for $1 and turned them into a great wall hanging.  Now $1 is totally an impressive find!

Before:



After:


They look great Design to Shine!  Great job turning someone else's junk into great decor.

Cindy over @ Cottage Instincts redid some brass lamps. 

Before:


After:

They look great with the textured black spraypaint!
Then she added great lampshades with some ribbon to accent!

Perfect end to a great project Cottage Instincts!

Thanks girls for showing me your projects.  They all looked great!  I think there is so much value in looking at each other's projects.  It helps me to look around my house and see what I can redo or reuse instead of running out to the store for that perfect piece.  Decorating can be an idol for me, so it's best that if I am itching to do a project I just see what I already have.  I pray that through our blogs we are able to encourage each other to do just that :)

They all looks great! I agree, I have such a great time seeing how other bloggers use creativity and thrift to make their homes beautiful. I've learned Sooooo much in just the few months I've been blogging. And I'm spending less on decor mags too :O)
Thanks for the shout out...
peace.

I couldn't agree more Beth. Having my home be perfect and put together can sometimes be an idol to me.
I like being inspired my projects I see in blogland. It has definitely motivated me to tackle a few projects of my own and I love when I can create something beautiful for very little money.

Thanks for showcasing our dining room. Unfortunately, Hubs gets all the credit on that one! :) I am thankful I have a hubby who is super talented and loves to tackle home improvement projects.
