Hey everyone - it's been a very busy week around here! My hubby spent this past weekend actually doing stuff in OUR house! He's usually so busy working that it's hard to get projects done around here (unless I start nagging!). He is upgrading the trim molding around the doors and windows, and the base boards in our master bedroom.. it's looking great so far and I can't wait to see it caulked and painted! I'll be sure to share the progress here soon.
So do you ever go to the internet looking for inspiration for projects you want to do? Yeah! A lot of us do - we read blogs, search google, and pin stuff to Pinterest.. well I've recently discovered a really cool website called Hometalk. Real people go to Hometalk and post their projects for everyone to see. When you see one (or 100) you like you can "clip" it to one of your "boards."
If you have questions about a project you're thinking about or a problem with something in your house, you can post the question on Hometalk and people will HELP YOU. It's awesome! It's an entire community based on the Home.
I recently painted my old, ugly dining room table and I thought it would be fun to make a board featuring other projects where people took cast-offs and made them beautiful and useful again! You can click on the picture below to see all 18 projects:
Take a look at the fun projects I clipped to the board - I LOVE the gold and white chair! (I admit it - I have a thing for chairs).
Once you're there, go ahead and create a profile - it only take a couple of minutes and you're good to go, ready to start clipping awesome stuff! If you like, you can follow me! I'm just getting started so we can do it together :D
Hometalk is partnering with Explore Gwinnett to provide tickets to the Atlanta Country Living Fair this year! (Oct 24-16) You can click here to read more about that and to enter for the chance to win them for you and a friend.
I'll be back later this week with a little fall stuff - aaaannnndddd I'm really excited.. I'm actually going to reveal a new look for the blog next week!!! One hint... it's golden :)
