caught my eye 4/30

30 April 2010

This is the last day of April.  Holy time fly, Batman. I am so excited for next week~I’ve invited 5 amazing bloggers to share some things they’ve learned about being a mom, since NEXT SUNDAY is Mother’s Day. I can’t wait~I know you will love them.
Today, you’ll be able to see some projects I have brewing in my head from this edition…enjoy!
{show & tell} has 2 fabulous DIY versions of framed mirrors in her bathrooms here and here

A yummy headboard from Joy’s Hope. She best be watchin’ her boyfriend, Craig. He’s been making plenty of women happy lately…

Rocky Bella’s butcher block counter~gorgeous!

Kate’s tutorial on painting laminate: our contractor quoted us $2,000 for built ins downstairs. No thank you, but I’ve got another plan and this post is going to help me accomplish it…ty, Kate!

Make It and Love It’s dry erase board~I never thought about writing on glass with a dry erase marker: (thank you to Bryanne for sending the link to me!)

Love all these ruffled pillows I’ve seen around, but Beth’s cheater version in my favorite because it means I don’t have to sew my own ruffles!
Have a great weekend~
