Happy Friday, all!
This is my first weekend ready post in two weeks. Don’t worry, I’m not slacking on my new post series already…I’ve just decided not to do a weekend ready full of fluff if I don’t actually have something to share with you. Last week at my day job was crazy busy, so I decided to skip last Friday. But if you’re a subscriber, you know I’ve been busy sharing updates this week, including entryway progress!
New this week…
LOTS of painting this week.
Speaking of entryway, I started sharing our progress working on our entryway! We have a navy wall now. If you missed it, make sure to check out the post for all of the before pics, plans, painting progress pics, and my thoughts on the paint.
I’m also halfway through the $100 Room Makeover Challenge. There are over 20 bloggers participating, and I’m excited to see what everyone does with a Benjamin. For week 1, I shared the before pics and my plans for the space. Then this week I shared my progress patching and painting the walls:
In addition to the room makeovers, I made a video about how to make rose petal bath salts in 90 seconds.

- If you loved my massive faux canvas peacock art DIY, you’ll love this project for oversized fabric art from Designing Vibes. (Her whole blog is amazing too!)
- If you’re a sucker for a good dumpster-level furniture makeover, you’ll love this entertainment center turned office cabinet makeover from Love Create Celebrate.
- Raise your hand if you have no idea how to use dark furniture wax. (Raises hand.) Check out this detailed tutorial from Grillo Designs.
- This video tutorial from Amber Oliver may be about how to make reindeer, but it’s also a good 101 for using a scroll saw.
I am really excited about what I have coming out next week. A bunch of bloggers are doing a monthly series of 10-minute DIYs, and January’s theme is organization. I’m focusing on the kitchen! Then I’ll be sharing my third week of the $100 room challenge progress, as well as a “behind the blog” post with a group of other bloggers. Finally, next Wednesday I will have my first guest post going live on Pretty Handy Girl. I’m a new monthly contributor for the blog, and I am so excited about that. I’ve loved Brittany’s blog for years!
Hope to see you next week, and until then, have a great weekend!
