DIY Day Recap and A Winner!

Yesterday was another great DIY Day! Click over there and check out some of the fantastic DIY projects that are being shared.


And if you haven't heard of DIY Day yet, where have you been??? Every Thursday, we get together and share our newest DIY projects. It's a blast! MckLinky usually shows up around 10pm Wednesday night and the linky party continues through Friday. Come party with us next week! There were over 170 projects linked up during yesterday's party.

And many, many thanks to Maggie Whitley for sponsoring DIY Day and for offering such a wonderful giveaway. Check out her shop!

This playroom makeover from The Old White Cottage has completely inspired me to get working on my shameful playroom.

A beautiful headboard turned bench from For the Love of My Home and Life.

A wowza, yowza fireplace makeover from Older and Wiser. It's so dramatic!!! You need to go see the "before" pictures.

Sutton Grace made an unbelievable play kitchen from an old entertainment center!

I love how The Treat Girl took her daughter's bedroom from Little Girl Sweet to Teenage Girl Fabulous! Great job!

You won't believe the work that Kristi from Kiki's Corner did to foof up her classroom before school starts. She's one stylish teacher! Love it!

This is definitely the most fabulous wedding cupcake stand that I've ever seen! And it was a DIY project! Thanks for Jen from Balancing Beauty and Bedlam for sharing.

Calling all cubical dwellers! You MUST check out this cubical makeover that Mrs. Faz of The Faz Chronicles did for her friend.

I love this cereal box mosaic from Infarrantly Creative! What a great project to do with the kids!

If you could only learn how to cook one thing, it should be a roasted chicken like this one from The Blushing Hostess Cooks.

I love this post from Kelly Hicks where she shows off the potential that she saw in one seriously ugly skirt.

Num. Num. Num. I am definitely going to try this Basil Chicken Angel Hair Pasta from Along the Way with K & J.

Great tutorial for making surfer dude signs from Enchantresses 3!
