Favorite use of paint: You know that we love paint as a quick and inexpensive pick-me-up — see what a difference paint made to Kara's garage entry area! She shared with us over on Facebook. (If you'd like to share, message us there on Facebook or drop us a line here.)
Favorite laundry room: this beautiful storage-packed room (via) is so perfect. The recessed slide-away doors cover the washer and dryer when not in use, and there's plenty of storage between the machines and in the cabinet above. Pin it here.
Favorite before and after: This amazing bathroom renovation at Jenna Sue Designs was done in just 6 weeks as part of the One Room Challenge, and wowza! You'd never guess it was the same room! Pin this here.
Favorite use of string lights: Yes, I know it's Christmas time and the lights “should” be on a tree somewhere… but let's think long-term and hang them from the ceiling! These bistro lights look amazing in this living room/loft area, via Design Sponge.
And last but not least — from the party — Favorite furniture makeover: Mindi from Mylove2create did an amazing job on her shared teen boys' room makeover, and she turned a basic chest of drawers into a taller unit with plenty of storage for both boys.
