DIY Day Recap and A Winner!

If you haven't finished clicking through all of the DIY Day fabulousness, then head back over to DIY Day and check out some more posts. I can't begin to tell you all how much encouragement and inspiration you give me each week by linking up your DIY projects. You are all so full of creativity and drive. I love it! My "to-do" file gets bigger every week.

I promise you that I visit every single post that links up. Here are just a few of my favorites.

Cheryl from TidyMom put together this quick and easy burlap covered bulletin board. Love it!

Sarah from A Beach Cottage, made the most beautiful candle chandelier for her bathroom. If you haven't seen her bathroom makeover, you MUST check it out.

Speaking of bathroom makeovers, this half bath/laundry redo from Something To Do is squeal-worthy.

A gossip bench makeover will catch my eye every time. This one from Walking Out His Good Plans is no exception.

You will never believe how Melissa from The Reinhard Roundup got TWO of these headboards for $5.00 total! Check it out. Brilliant!

Our DIY Day sponsor this week was Kelly from Purple Lemon Designs. Kelly got to choose her favorite project as the winner of a set of her Custom Designed Flat Note Cards.

The winner is Stephanie from A Fine House for her button artwork. So simple and so pretty! Congratulations Stephanie! And thank you Kelly!

Kimba,
Got in late last night from the Endless Yard Sale, and I was so thrilled & surprised to discover that I have been chosen by Kelly as her favorite DIY project this week.
I truly love going through all of the DIY posts each and every week, and I am a bit awed that my little "button garden" would be chosen among so many amazing projects. Everyone truly inspires me, and the talent & creativeness are amazing. (My favorite was the black & white curtains on the redone patio).

Thanks so much Kimba for your great site and your DIY Thursdays.
Btw, loved your caromel colors video!

Hi Kimba-
So good to come back and visit! I feel like I have missed so much this summer all wrapped up in my MT course. Love your DIY series-what a great idea! Makes so much sense to put all the great projects all on one great blog. Hope you are having a great summer. Hope I have more time to visit and to get back to blogging very soon!

Hi Kimba,
