    I did this project, an idea orginally introduced to me by my mom, as an easy start of the year DIY. I wasn't ready to get in over my head with anything and this little project made me feel accomplished!

    Just found WhisperWood Cottage today on Picket Fence Blogs and became an instant follower!

  20. I am #34, linking up our rope shelf project. I wanted a beachy, relaxed feel to our office, and thought these would be a unique addition. Plus with one side of the office being heavy visually with office furniture, I wanted something else to bring your eye around to the other side.
    been a follower for awhile now! Love it!
    Hope I win!! :) love the prizes!!

  21. I'm #35. "Stories of a Swinging Door." I did this post to tackle of the many experiences I've had since we moved into our new (old) home a few weeks ago. As simple as it seems, the DIY attempt of taking down a door proved to be much more eventful that I anticipated. I'm a new follower of your blog. Hooked already!

  22. Hi! I'm 40! Which is hilarious since I told myself over and over to come link up at 11 cst!!!! And I forgot anyway!!!
    You inspired me to start my upstairs re-do. It's a bit of a color over-haul! I did my downstairs last year and WOW what a difference paint can make!
    Soooo, I'm off~stay tuned! xo

Thanks for hosting this awesome party.

  31. I'm #50 and my project is Quilted Pillows in Denim and White. I am a follower and have your blog in my sidebar so I can keep up to date with each of your posts. I made the pillows because I wanted to add some colour to our neutral work-in-progress living room. I love quilt motifs and thought this would add a bit of personality to the room. Both pillows were free because the denim was recycled from jeans and I had everything else. Thanks for hosting this fun party. I am looking forward to seeing all the link ups.

  46. My project number is 37. The abacus project represented step 2 of the home office decorative upgrade. Besides being beautifully formed caclulators, the abacus represents numbers. And both my partner and I work with numbers for a living. It's an appropriate reference to our professions. I subscribe to this blog through my wordpress subscriptions, that's the best way I've found to get updates. Thanks for hosting this big big link party, can't wait to look at all the creative projects! -Diane

  47. Hello I am number 72! And of course I posted the wrong link! The actual link is:

    http://foreclosed2fabulous.blogspot.com/2011/01/before-and-after-adding-open-shelving.html

    We added shelving because we needed more storage options for our tiny kitchen!

    And I just found your blog and love it, so now I'm a follower :-)

    ReplyDelete
  48. I linked up #74 - my stenciled desk.

    I LOVED this project...even though it haunted me for a few months! I am starting off the new year with new decor style, and I'm trying to slowly lighten up my decor within my very limited budget!

    I am most definitely a follower :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. I also linked up #75 - my "Free TV Stand Fix"

    We've had this TV stand for a few years now...a cheap piece from Target, and we have intentions of getting rid of it as soon as we have $$ to buy something else...BUT I came up with a quick solution that makes a world of difference to "de-clutter" and "pretty" up the piece! Sometimes it's the little things that make a big difference :)

    I'm a follower! :)

  56. What a wonderful linky party! Thanx for hosting!! My project is link #90 Kitchen Island Reveal. This project was started because we did not have a built in kitchen island and my in laws gave me their old one after remolding their kitchen. Thought it was already nice it did not fit in to our decor. I also wanted it to look built in or like a piece of furniture. Though it took awhile since it was done in stages I am sooo glad to finally have it done and enjoy it! Thanx again for hosting!

  67. #106 Lampshade Nest

    Ok, if I'm being honest here, the real reason I did this project was to disguise a hole in a fabulous ratty old lampshade, and I happened to have some good supplies laying around to build a bird nest. A posh bird nest none the less.

    If I need to sugar coat it, I'll say that I made this lampshade because I was looking to add a truly unique embellishment to an otherwise impaired antique shade so that I could could add an original piece of art to my living room to accomodate the new color changes. (How's that for putting a positive spin on a ripped shade? :) )

    There are some really great projects linked up here

  71. Hi there!! Well, my cursor won't tell me what number my projects are, but so far I've posted the Farmhouse Chic cabinet, the Jute&Light lamp, and the mid-century modern danish desk re-do. To be honest, I've been stuck in the house all week due to the winter weather and I'm going a little stir crazy!! :) These projects have kept the cabin fever at a minimum. Thanks for hosting such a fun link-party! Oh, and I'm a follower.

  74. My project is #119: How to create a Guest Suite in a 320 sq ft cottage. We are very limited on space, so this project was created out of necessity. We always have cousins or a stray sister coming to visit (Yay for sisters!) It is used as a bench/sofa during the day, and on demand we can turn it into a scrumptious bed, with fridge and pantry nearby for midnight snack attacks :)

    This project would work for others - in a reading nook, or a window seat, for example.

    So I have done this:

  100. Hey! I am #91, a fresh tablescape and organizing ideas. For the new year, I wanted to start by getting the kitchen in order, nice and organized. And show how to use things you already have to make a fresh, new look. Fresh ideas and decor, without spending any money :)
    Thanks for the linky party! I've enjoyed checking all the projects out.
    Blessings

  102. #167....Shabby chic hutch makeover...I did this project because there is nothing better than creating something gorgeous out of something someone else considered no longer worthy. It is a thrill I know many DIYers can relate to. I am a follower and subscriber of Whisperwood Cottage.

    Thanks for the opportunity. I can't wait to check out all of the other amazing projects for inspiration...

    Take care,
    Lisa

  105. Hello again,
    I'm #170, Goodwill to the Rescue. I love this lil candle holder. I had bought the top at a garage sale and it took 2 months to find the base. It worked perfectly. Taught me that persistence pays off.

  111. I'm project #181 and I did the board and batten on the wall in our upstairs hallway to brighten that area up. It was a little dark and boring and now it's got a bright, cottage feel to it that I LOVE! And I'm a follower of your site!!

  112. Me again! I also posted project #182 - the wood pallet-framed wardrobe mirror. I did this project because I wanted a luxurious yet rustic mirror for for a fraction of the price of one like this at retail - plus, none of the retail stores in my search had anything rustic and salvaged-looking like I wanted so I'm VERY happy with how this mirror turned out!
    I've been a follower of your site for awhile now - love your work!

  115. Thanks for hosting this great linky party! I've been working crazy on new projects since the beginning of the year, so I linked up 5 of my favorites (189-193). I have another project posting tomorrow, which I will also link up. All of these projects have been on my to-do-list for a while, and they've all been things that I've wanted to do to update my interior decor.

    I would love for you to visit my Interior Design & Decor website, SAS Interiors @ www.sasinteriors.net

  117. My link is #195 Staircase Makeover. My carpet was 17 years old and it cost too much to repalce or get professionally cleaned so I did what I had been wanting to do for years - strip the carpet off and paint the risers white and stain the steps.

    My crafting space organization project is located here: http://www.hollydaycards.com/2011/01/my-crafting-space.html

    I needed a system for all the madness to organize my card-making supplies for my home-based business.
