The favorite happening around my house this week: we finally hung my Christmas present from my husband (that I bought myself) — the painter’s tape, it’ll come down eventually! (If you want to see more of the real life that happens around here, just follow me over on Instagram here!)
You can share your favorite completed projects here at this month’s link party and we picked a few from the party and around the web that we love and we think you will too!
Favorite pretty organizing trick: I’m not much of a purse collector, but Melissa’s collection kind of makes me wish I were! And those fancy looking purse holders are a DIY job! Get the details at Polished Habitat.
Favorite console table (and, oh yea, it hides the radiator!) — This idea that I saw over at Better Homes and Gardens is brilliant! I didn’t even notice it was a radiator cover up until I read the caption. Just build a vented cover/table around the radiator, and decorate it like a regular console or entry table.
Favorite bathroom mirror: The whole makeover is gorgeous, but I’m loving the mirror in EyeForPretty’s bathroom!
Favorite bookshelf-staircase-bunkbed combo — isn’t this loft bed with bookcase stairs amazing? Plus, the added storage along the rail of the bed is smart, even if you don’t have super cool bookshelf stairs to get into bed. (by Tamara H Designs, via HGTV)
Favorite Instagram-brought-to-life: I can’t decide which part of this I like better — the awesome Instagram gallery/collage wall, or that cool console table! Check it out at Gimme Some Oven.
Favorite thing I gotta try this summer: a sunbathing tote with a built-in pillow, and plenty of pockets for a drink, a book, and snacks. See how to make it over at The Golden Adventures of a Very Dark Horse.
Favorite thing sitting on my desk which I’m also going to give away(!): this beautiful calendar from Michelle over at Elegance and Enchantment. I love Michelle’s yearly motivational calendars (see more details here) and she very generously sent us two to give away to some lucky readers!
One calendar is up for grabs here on the site — and the other will be given to one commenter over on our Facebook page here. So enter in the widget below AND over on Facebook to increase your chances of having one of these beauties sitting on your desk, too! (Note: The 2016 calendar comes in a cool little jewel case/stand, but if you want the cute little easel, you can pick one up here on Amazon.)
Just in case you don’t win, or if you want one of Michelle’s other beautiful calendars — Michelle gave us a special Remodelaholic code to get you 25% off printed calendars, now through 1/31. Visit her Etsy shop here, and use the code REMODELCAL25.
Lorene has been behind the scenes here at Remodelaholic for more than a decade! She believes that planning projects and actually completing them are two different hobbies, but that doesn't stop her from planning at least a dozen projects at any given time. She spends her free time creating memories with her husband and 5 kids, traveling as far as she can afford, and partaking of books in any form available.
