The sumer heat and humidity is chasing me indoors these days… at least until evening! So that means I’m organizing and cleaning and decorating. Lots and lots of decorating! We are just about to start a new makeover… a total gut really! It seems to take us FOR-EVER to complete a project! It’s a good thing I am a patient woman!!!! Our latest makeover was a blue and white bedroom. Sorta chippy, lots of soft colors, and upcycled furniture! 

You can see it HERE. There are lots of easy to-do ideas and lots of pictures!

Hi everyone!  It’s been a busy few weeks for me since it was last my turn to host The Scoop.   If you want to see what I’ve been up to, click on each link below to see the details of two of my projects that I shared.
I turned an old hutch into a No Mudroom – No Problem – DIY Dropzone

This week I’ll be revealing my fireplace transformation.  I hope you’ll come back to check it out!  
Let me share a few features from last week’s party.
Who doesn’t love a great Ikea hack?  Usually the hack is done with furniture, but Diana from Dreams Factory took two Ikea enamel pitches and created DIY French Vases.  Visit her post to get the tutorial.
Do you have any budding entrepreneurs at your house?  Michele from The Scrap Shop created a cute Lemonade Stand Kit to get them started.
Diana from Adirondack Girl shared how she made this absolutely adorable Farmhouse Art.
Oh my – you really must go see the Before & After Home Tour at A Bit Of Vintage.  The transformation is amazing.
This recipe is certainly fitting considering the release of the new Minions movie last week!  Find out how Dee from Meatloaf & Melodrama made these adorable Cookie Minions with her kids from store-bought cookies.
As always, thank you to everyone who links up or just comes for some inspiration every week.  Let’s get on to this week’s party!
