Linky Love

I'm exhausted! At last count there were over 150 posts linked up for DIY Day! THAT is the ultimate linky love! If you haven't had a chance to browse through, go take a look. There is some fantastic stuff in there.

Here are just a few of my faves along with some other things I've seen this week.

I WILL find something in my house that I can paint this beautiful peacock blue color. Edie from Life in Grace did it to her pine armoire and she gives a great tutorial on the french painting technique.

I can hardly believe that this is the same kitchen. You must check out this makeover from Twice Remembered. If you like lots of pictures, make sure you keep scrolling through the post. Stunning!

I've been trying to figure out what to do with the red-hot mess that is my laundry room, so this makeover from Blue Creek Home caught my eye.

I love this bench makeover from Ashley's Busy! If I had 5 kids, they could each have their own time-out spot.

Melaine from The Old White Cottage turned a closet into a crafting station. Brilliant!

I was JUST eyeballing an old milk glass chandelier at the thrift store. I wanted to like it but I couldn't figure out what to do with it. Amber Dusick inspired me with her makeover.

Oh my! I was so excited to see that blue armoir. I have that exact armoir and another like it that I was thinking of painting a seaglass blue.

Then, I scrolled down and saw my craft closet! Even more exciting! Thank you so much!

Really neat. I love the blue. It would give my earth toned rooms a real POP!

I have a large 1980's china hutch, want to paint it, and can't decide! First I think white...then blue, then turquoise! Oh geeze! I'll keep coming back to blogs like yours but, ohhhh! That blue!
