Things I'm Loving... This week ~

Happy Friday everyone! In case you have some time to spare this weekend, I put together a little list of some inspiring things that I came across this week. Aren't we lucky that these creative and resourceful people share their projects with us?

This sunburst mirror over at Nesting Place. It's made with poster board! Talk about simple with big impact! Isn't it neat? Head on over and check out the how-to.

This Restful Retreat designed by Candice Olsen for Candice Tells All (new series on W Network). I've recorded the episode but have yet to watch.. can't wait. That woman has vision!

This mat. We teachers all have these mats in our classroom for the students to sit on while we do read-alouds or have circle time. Check out what Sarah did with hers (freehand!). It looks adorable in her niece's nursery.

This incredible chair makeover over at Casa Brasi. It is one good looking chair. That nailhead trim makes my heart skip a beat. I'm telling you people ... it's all about upcycling! You have to head over and see the before.

And yes, I'm late on this one, but I think it's incredible. Who knew that a pantry could render me speechless? I just love when organized things are pretty too:) That Mrs. Smith is one smart cookie.

Have a great weekend everyone! Thanks for all your supportive comments this week about my living room. I read every single one and they put a big goofy smile on my face!
