Simply Saturday

There was a lot of good stuff going on out there this week. Here's a bit of what I loved this week.





Debbie at Ribbonwood Cottage did a little project that made me laugh out loud. It was so unexpected and I absolutely love it. Did I mention that I love it?



Tara at Living A Dream did a fantastic rehab of a telephone bench. I love these seat/table combos. Did you know that they're called gossip benches? Anyway, the makeover is fantastic!


Natalie at Home Sweet Hideaway did a furniture rehab project that made me jump up and down and clap my hands. I absolutely adore this apple green color and it transformed a dated piece of furniture into something truly stunning. Way to go, Natalie!


Leslie at Feathers in My Nest showed us a super-bargain makeover to her fireplace. You have to go see her before and after pictures. It's amazing what some paint and accessories can do.

Hi Kimba! That apple green chest of drawers was one of my favorites this week too! Love it! I love that phone table too. Have a great holiday weekend!

Makes me so want to re-do my fireplace. Ugh. Late 80's anyone? Double ugh. I need Leslie's help!

Thanks so much for highlighting my dresser. If you could see me now, you would see a big dorky grin on my face! When we were outside in the garage painting this dresser green, and the other one turquoise (my personal favorite), a group of neighborhood kids gathered around to watch. They couldn’t believe we were using such funky colors. I am so glad there are a few people out there who understand where I was going with my color choices! I don’t know where I have been, but I seriously had NO idea there were so many decorating geniuses with blogs! I absolutely LOVED seeing all of the projects – so very inspiring!

Kimba, I loved catching up with you this morning. Thanks for showing off all those amazing projects at various places this week. That was fun.

I love the curtains you did on your porch. That is a great idea! Something I may have to copy! If I do, I'll be sure to post pictures and invite you over.

That apple green color is big right now. I'm thinking of using it in my office as an accent color. What can I spraypaint...
