Here’s What Your Hostesses Have Been Up To
— Diana’s Pick —
Last week, Jessica, who blogs at My DIY Envy, radically transformed a 80’s era TV Cabinet into a thing of beauty. “Soldier Blue” milk paint and a set of brushed metal handles helped create a handsome piece of furniture that I’m sure filled many readers with DIY envy(!).
There is so much talent out in blogland and on Pinterest; it’s not often I come across a technique that I have never heard of before. I’ve seen a variety of lovely DIY countertops–from painted, to concrete, to reclaimed wood. Marie-Helene from Kingsbury Brook Farm shares a detailed tutorial on How to Make Laminate Countertops Look Like Wood and let me tell you, they are stunning! It would never occur to me that they are anything but wood. I am so inspired, there may be a makeover for my countertops in the near future.

Guest Feature: Lisa from Recreated Designs shares a great faux, 3-dimensional painting tip in Making a Stencil Multidimensional on My Faux Galvanized Pail. It’s a simple trick that anyone can do to make their artwork stand out and be noticed. As someone who likes to stencil, I’ll definitely be trying this one out. Her pails look fabulous, by the way.

Sarah at Sadie Seasongoods made the most adorable fabric pumpkins I’ve seen this year. She brilliantly chose bandanna’s to create her pumpkins, and she shares her terrific tutorial with us in Country Bumpkin Halloween Bandanna Pumpkin. Love these delightful bandanna pumpkins!
