DIY Day Recap and a Winner!!!

Thank you all so much for packing up your tool boxes and paint brushes and moving with me to Tuesdays. It's feeling pretty good over here. I think I'm going to like DIY Day on Tuesday.

Many, many thanks to Back 40 Life for providing one winner with $40 to spend on vinyl artwork in her etsy shop. The winner is Joanna from The Casa and her DIY Growth Chart.

Here is a small sampling of the DIY-awesomeness that you all shared.

Glowing Monster Jars @ Not So Idle Hands (These are too cute! Tutorial here.)

A gasp-worthy mirrored nightstand makeover @ Santa Maker's Journey

A staircase makeover @ The Eck Life

New Look for the Mudroom @ Design A-Peel (You HAVE to see the baskets hanging on the wall. Brilliant!)

Mod Podge SHOES! @ Oops! I Craft My Pants

Ladder + Chicken Wire = Bookshelf @ Blue Castle (Oh my stinkin' chicken wire! I love this!)

How to Convert Cabinets to Open Shelving @ Not So Random Stuff

Dresser Drawers Turned Under-Bed Storage @ Finding Joy in the Simple Things

Hidden Office in the Dining Room @ Red Writing

On a different note...Does your kiddo have a teacher that you love? If so, head on over to GoodNCrazy and nominate him or her for a Max Mom Award. They could win $100 for school supplies! Did you know that teachers spend an average of $1,200 of their own money on classroom supplies each year? Let's help a teacher out!

The creativity here both inspires me and puts me to shame! :-) I LOVE that you host this day. So much fun! One of my favorites was the mod podge shoes because they were just so different from anything that you typically see on a DIY day. The creativity never ends... Have a great day Kimba!
