Make it 4 Monday!

Yippeee!  Boy do I need some inspiration.  I've got at least 5 decorating/painting projects in the works, and I'm running outta steam.  Can't wait to see you've got for me...for now, check out my top 10 picks from last week.  If you get picked, pick up the button:

Primitive & Proper.  A Yummy aqua-ish/turquoisey/robins egg blue dresser redo.

The Hand Me Down House did it right with some built-in shelving.

Down on Sanford remade a shelf that had been made by his grandpa into beachy bliss.

The Decorating Diaries pulled out some power tools to make this pink confection:

September the March turned an ordinary letter tray into computer cord stashing awesomeness:

Lexi's Mommy made this bench outta the ugliest couch ever....you'd never know it now!

Here's the rules.  Gotta have rules.  Well, you don't gotta, but it helps keep me sane.  Here ya go...
Pretty please with Little Debbie Oatmeal Cakes on top, only link:
DECORATING PROJECTS 
FOR THE HOME
That means no recipes, no clothes, and no crafts unless it will be used 
FOR MAKING YOUR (or someone else's) COTTAGE LOOK OR FUNCTION BETTER.  
If you're not sure, email me. 
Yes, I will delete posts that don't color within the lines.  Yes, I deleted links again last week.  Made me feel like a meanie, but alas, I will do it again this week if need be.

Hi Cindy, your back with the party, I am back blogging and I am back linking up. It is a home decor (or a bit of garden decor actually) post, but other than the vignetting not a lot of DIY in this one. I hope that is ok, you didn't say in the rules it should be something I made myself, or did I miss something?
Glad to be back!! Have a wonderful week. I am off to bed now and back to work tomorrow, vacation is officially over. Ah well I knew it would come to that.
Take care, Marianne

Thanks for featuring my lamp transformation. I want to link Emilee's art buckets. If they're not okay just hit delete. Thanks for hosting Cindy. It's hard hosting a party every week. I can only handle hosting twice a month.

Oops, I read the rules after posting, better late than never. I posted a non-home decorating post, sorry. I know you need to delete it, sorry. I'll find the right type of post and come back. Mary from Boogieboard Cottage. :O)

Hi Cindy!

Thanks so much for featuring my little bedroom makeover! My heart went all pitter-patter when I saw my room. Afraid I'm out of completed projects right now, but I hope to be back soon with more. Once I get my school rhythm back again, I'll be back at it.

And thanks so much for being such a source of inspiration from what YOU so creatively do to hosting this linky. You're a peach!

I'm so glad I found your blog because reading about all the DIY that everyone is doing make it seem ok for me to keep trying to do things. I would like to paint an old bedroom set, but my daughter wants it stained. Everything seems to be happening at the end of Summer... clearing out storage, painting rooms, trying to finish up the kitchen. Love the photos!
