Greetings all, and thanks for all the kind comments on the Peacock Blue Bamboo Chest earlier this week!  And did you see?  It was featured on Apartment Therapy, woot!  So exciting!

What DIY projects are you working on this weekend?  We’ve got plans to start another revamp over at our Alma House – we’re starting the process of building them a fully functional laundry room space, look for a post on that soon!

Want a little extra spending dough?  How about a chance to win a $75 Amazon Gift Card?  This weekend, one of my sponsors is giving away two gift cards, each one in the amount of $75 bucks!

  4. I signed up! I had never heard of About One, and I think it will be really useful for us so thanks!

  5. I’m signed up! Only thing is…seems awfully convenient one-stop shopping for identity theft. Use strong passwords, guys!

  6. I’m signed up! Though it does seem like a one-stop-shop for identity theft. Choose strong passwords, guys!

  7. Now that our daughter is married and moved out we are repainting the room this weekend and changing the look totally. It is now going to be a guest room/office. I have gotten a lot of inspiration from your site. I have already spray painted one side table, and am looking for a Louis XVI chair to go with the desk. Thanks for all your great tips!

  8. I’m signed up at About One! What a clever idea!
    I love your site, look forward to seeing the beautiful new things you have to share! Love the peacock blue inspirations!
