DIY Day Recap and A Winner!

It's probably for the best that DIY Day is only once per week. It probably takes most of you that long to check out all the posts! I hereby declare my readers (that's you!) the most creative, talented, crafty bunch of people in the blogisphere! If you want to see the whole big mass of DIY goodness, click here for yesterday's post. You can still link up your projects, if you haven't yet.

Here is just a small sampling of my faves. I seriously wish I could highlight each and every one of your projects.

This barnwood headboard from Lucy's Tales is seriously stunning! I double-chocolate brownie love it!

Krys from This Little Birdie Stayed Home refinished her standard-issue orange pine table into a beautiful spot in her school room.

This lamp turned hanging chandelier project from Britt at A Penny Saves is one of the best DIY projects that I've ever seen. She gives a great tutorial so you can do it too.

I would spend way more time in the garage if it looked as fantastic as this one from An Accomplished Woman.

I love this wooden art collage made from scraps of wood from Nonflammable.

The Coolest Mom on the Block and Kitty Scraps both gave us fantastic tutorials for turning an inexpensive mini-blind into a roman shade.

I love that Beth's hubby from The Stories of A to Z couldn't resist getting in on the fun with the stamped t-shirts he made for his family.

A painted sheet art project from The Pretty Policy. Make sure you check out that awesome painted chandelier in the last picture.

Hi Kimba,

I have to say thank you so much for doing DIY on weekly basics. I love looking at other people's creations. I am like a kid on a Christmas Day when you post them up on ready to go for others to post. Heh!

I also have found wonderful bloggers that I have to add on to my faves.

Thanks for all you do! :)
