Pretty Preppy Party Favorites–Month 3!!

Pretty Preppy Party Blog Linky Party | 11 Magnolia Lane
I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving and survived Black Friday (if you participated).  Thank goodness for the internet–I didn’t have to search for a parking space or a shopping cart!

Our third Pretty Preppy Party was last Thursday–thanks for stopping by to see and share  your “pretty” and “preppy” projects!  We really appreciate each and every one of you who links up and shares your projects, but here are the two that we chose this month:

First, Emily from Table and Hearth did a great job DIY’ing a metal table top onto a console table that she bought at World Market–it completely changes the look of the table and I love it!  Extra points for being so fearless, too. :)

Tyler at The Striped House did a major makeover–thanks to the power of paint–on her fireplace and built-in’s, and the “after” is just amazing.  I love the way the room is so light and bright now:


Thanks to all of you for sharing your amazing talent!

Unless you're new around here (and welcome if you are!), then you probably know that my husband is in the Army.  You might not have known that my son's birthday is on Veterans' Day/Armistice Day, though.  I tried to convince him to be born (aka get out!) sooner, but this was the day he selected. … [Read More...]

Update on Gold DIY Jewelry Bowls
